It was boring, obvious and poorly animated. Subtitles that repeated, sloppy metaphors. I like the overall direction, but I know you can do better. You didn't need to be so literal with the song; you could have extended the metaphor and brought your audience to a new place. Spend more time on the animations and try writing an original story. I'm only being harsh because my sense is that you have a unique style and ability. Remember... Good (enough) is the enemy of Great. But, it's pretty good for a 2 year old....
I really liked it.
I don't see the animation as bad. It looks like a blend of the Phonetic kanji to the background itself, But I could be reading in to it too much. Anyway great flash and keep them up!!
Well at first I thought it was something to do with RE since you wrote worlds end together with Umbrella. But forget about it. Your theme overall, was a pretty good idea. The animation with the song was cool. Only thing is you need to practice more so that it looks more polished. However overall I think its pretty good.
Some things that I didn't like
I'm not saying that I didn't like it because of the music, or the animation. But I didn't like your approach to this video.
This was a very literal representation of the song. Every verse was acted out word for word. It seemed as though there was no thought in this animation, because the music did all of the thinking for you. There was no metaphorical interpretation, nor variation from the song. The song should be more background, just something to keep in mind while there are events that take place in the video that are relevant but has it's own identity from the song. And the explanation text made it seem as though you where lost without the lyrics in the song.
I didn't like this video because it was more a visual of the song rather then a media that takes video and audio and blends the two elements together to form a story.
I don't know if I'm saying all of this right, but try to watch the really good music video submissions, and this should make more sense.
the animations were good, but the flash...it just isn't my style. preferably bcuz I don't like the music, but hey its just me
