I had to "jack in" (heh, remember that?) after so long of being inactive just to review this.
I know (or knew) you have (or had) a passionate behavior when it comes to your work, but this is just awful. Simply put. It's not MindChamber.
Note: Criticism drizzled with humor.
The video consists of about 20 or so loops all pasted together with near no real relevance other than it being either a 24 frame "animation" [see: tween] of a skew on a still image, an animation of a fist/arm movement then the same frames again... but reversed or a literal interpretation of what the... artis... rappe... singe... vocalist had just said.
The only time this is different is roughly in 3 instances: the 'lightning arc' effect (FBF or shape tween?) , the ending with the vocalist in some sort of ghetto-meets-KKK-meets-prototype outfit (the blood effects though, nice job) and the chroma keying at the end. Although get some better acting.
Minor gripe: was blobbing over the baseball caps brand logo really required?
a. remove it with scissors (they're pretty damn cheap)
b. not where a cap and simply have the hood up like he does in the animated version, albeit without the cap?
Perhaps even a thin beanie hat over the cap with or without the hood?
It seems like you were struggling for ideas, like many directors for rap videos. Due to the poor lyrics (and i can back that up with examples later) you had to rely on "crowd shots" and "stage/DJ shots" constantly. This, combined with the very repetitive loops caused me to lose all interest about 2 minutes in, perhaps even earlier.
Perhaps the title "Seeing is believing" made you take this choice to literally depict things in the lyrics within the video, but I feel the title of the song and the lyrics of the song are both out of sync.
Seeing is believing is referring to something so peculiar that it has to be seen to be believed, right?
That doesn't mean you need to literally have a god beam them self down to the stage nodding their head. Especially how the lyrics seem to suggest the gods disapproval of the vocalists choices but a keenness on his vocals (and "bangin' tracks").
Ran out of characters :(
The lyrics were really poor and had no word play for which rap/mc-ing is famous for (well that and some other things).
"Left for dead in the game,
On his last live,
you only get one."
First he says "on his last live" then "you only get one". It was contradictory to say "his last live" and that "you only get one". If you only get one, your always on your last life. The third line isn't needed and only brings the lyrics down. At least he got reference to the "the game" of life and a video game in there, though it's so clichÃ© now.
The music felt like one of those Jay-Z songs that state,
"I've not made a single in 6 months, now I'm back and I'm still a wealthy narcissist."
as opposed to the subject matter of quickly changing from someone who isn't a role model but not exactly the worst person in the world, to turn into someone who is "killing challenges with homicidal bars that he writes" who will "lobotomize them while keeping it all insight".
Why in the video he starts to slaughter the crowd with break-dancing moves is beyond my point of understanding.
"so tell your people to run now,
warn a friend,
to sun up to sun down we gonna slaughter them."
This, I believe, isn't referencing the listeners but rather the challengers and their friends.
This is reinforced by the fact he goes on to mention challengers more and more.
Feels like a more fitting visual would be him killing a bunch of "haters" in his audience or so his audience can "see it to believe it". But that's just me.
Audio is a single drum loop, some pops, brass "hits", piano and scratches repeated infinity to point of nausea, Not much to say there. Feels like there's no sub-bass or bass. I have earphones and a sub-woofer to check and they pick nearly nothing towards the low end frequencies.
I had more to write but ran out of space.
