  1. Mixt The dude that does the thing

    Oct 18, 2006
    Welcome to another week of Top 5 (even if I am a couple days late). We had plenty of good entries and it was really hard to narrow it down to 5, much less rank them. And as an added bonus it was heartwarming to see all the community building with many collabs and tribute videos. So without further ado let me present our winners.

    This Week's Judge(s):Mixt

    1. NEVERLAND; ᴅᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ sᴏɴɪᴄғᴀɴ23

    NEVERLAND; ᴅᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ sᴏɴɪᴄғᴀɴ23

    Submitted by: starlight2011studios
    Song: Neverland by U-Kiss
    Details: A very bright and energetic piece. There wasn't much of a story to it but there didn't need to be for this piece (even if you translate the lyrics, there isn't much to run with) My only real issue was that it was too much at points and I couldn't quite tell what was happening other than brightly colored objects flashing across the screen.

    2. Safe and Sound
    Submitted by: minicoop55
    Song: Safe and Sound covered by Sam Tsui & Kurt Schneider
    Details: This one had some nice consistant flow to it with effects that were noticeable without being overwhelming. There were some points that seemed to me like you were unsure of what you should be doing, but I am thankful that you gave it a swing anyway instead of making a short video.

    3. Kingdom Hearts, End of Me
    Submitted by: Leblonk
    Song: End of Me by Ashes Remain
    Details: Very similar to video above, but with darker tone to match the different song. From a technical standpoint it would be nice if you applied some cropping so that there is a consistent aspect ratio throughout, but how the clips were used I don't imagine most people would notice or mind. The audio overlays were done very cleanly and served well to support the video's story, though in the future you may want to play with the volume a bit to make sure they don't get buried under the music.

    4. Love That You Deserve [ᶠᵒʳ ᴰᵃʳᵏᴿᵒˣᵃˢˣˣˣ]
    Submitted by: PrincessKairixXx
    Song: Love Song Requiem by Trading Yesterday
    Details: Rather simplistic and straightforward but it was played to your advatage to result in a video that had a softer tone and smooth flow. I esspecially liked the soft lighting overlay to give a bit of consistancy across the transitions.

    5. sʜᴏᴏᴛɪɴɢ sᴛᴀʀs; ᴇᴠᴇʀʏᴛʜɪɴɢ ♥
    Submitted by: starlight2011studios
    Song 1: Airplanes / Brick By Boring Brick covered and remixed by Michael Henry & Justin Robinett
    Song 2: Everything About You by One Direction
    Details: A nice, upbeat, celebratory video quite fitting for the event it was made for. Though it did get to be too busy at various points, most notably for me was the blue particles in the first half. Perhaps if they were slower and/or more transparent it may have worked better, but when they came nearer to the camera the rapid motion provided more action than the song called for and masked the video behind it. Interestingly though the pink particles in the second half were done very well. And the use of still images durring the trasition was perfomed nicely as well.

    Congratulations to all who placed this week!
    Haven't placed yet? Don't give up! Your video certainly was not bad, and you may place in a future week.
