Full Title: Nightwish - The Crow, The Owl, and The Dove [Nuclear Blast Fan Video Contest]

Simple, I've worked on a music video for an online contest involving a Finnish symphonic metal band. This is the result, a story of a mecha pilot and her dream. Not very "Nightwish" I know, so I guess treat it as an original anime music video. In the end, I hope you enjoy this mash up of combining one of my favorite band's music, with some of my favorites that I loved since I was young (which I guess ties in with the theme of the song).




Rated 5 / 5 stars

That was quite the amazing music video!!!!
The music was just breathtaking and and the animation wasn't half bad.
Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

You have an animation/music flow that synchronizes almost perfectly, but the slide motions for the almost paper-puppet-esque figure diminishes the impact. The art style is clean, which I like, and the song choice is out of context, adding to her sadness over something we don't know about. As to WingZero75: Dude, go to Youtube, look up a song called "Dark Chest Of Wonders," sit back, and let your eyes bleed from your skull so that you can better hear the music.

As far as I can tell, you made a beatuiful songchoice and I think, you made a very nice flash to it. Only con is that the animation some times seemed ... not fluid. As if there were some pictures missing or something.

Anyway, 4 out of 5 isn't that bad.

It might have been when I converted the majority of the animations from the "new" Motion Tweens and IK handles to frame-by-frame (it kept on breaking for some reason). If you're talking about stuff like her head turning and eyes moving, yeah, they are just still frames unfortunately since I was rushing it for the contest deadline. (Exporting it with a 30-minute render/compression time then discovering one of the IK-based animation broke was a BITCH. Oh, this was for the Youtube version, where the contest was held. If it's Newgrounds, it'd be easy.)
