I'm genuinely surprised it took someone so long to use this song in relationship to Becky. Cool song choice in hindsight because this was a fairly good video.
Unfortunately, a majority of my critique centers around the intention, meaning there's a specific reason to use a certain clip. The chief example of this fault falls at the very first shot. A clip of Becky looking at a title, imo, isn't a great starting shot for what you guys delve into. This then bleeds into a majority of shot choices in the video making it feel like "here's a clip. let's use it here" without ever questioning why you're using it.
The story structure here was pretty cool but as I've talked about, the clip choices here are very hit or miss and don't add a good amount of energy to the video.
This is pretty cool for what it's doing. I don't see much I don't like technically other than the pixelation/tv effect on the impact hits at various points. The only serious complaint is mostly a preference on my part; There does seem to be some sort of lack of emotional connection to the song and made the video feel clinical at some points.
Aside from some clip choices throughout and not fully committing to the rhythm of the song, I thought this was pretty good, especially for someone who overlooked Toni Storm. I could generally tell who did what here (Everette starts at around 1:50 is a good guess) and it's pretty clear that he could ride the song's wave extremely well. In the long run, it probably didn't affect much.
When I first saw this, I could have sworn yall already made a Becky video a while ago, so I'm guessing this is like a continuation to that other one. Song choice was a no-brainer, I just wish her turn had more of an impact/meaning in your video. I did like the little segment where Trips, Cena & Edge put her over as a serious promo but other than that, everything had the same vibe to it even though I feel like her post-Summerslam stuff should have been a bit more distinguishable from her babyface run. From a technical standpoint, you're both obviously very sound. I only gave syncing a 9 because it seems like most of it was just a couple frames off each time, which could perhaps be a rendering issue.
solid stuff. It's a very bare-bone-type of tribute video with a fitting song. So concept wise, there really isn't anything I can harp on. Syncing was a bit of a hit and miss. Sometimes you were right on point with the beat but other times you kinda lost track of it. Generally speaking, everything was good but it didn't blow me away either which explains all the 7s lol.
Good video overall. It's hard to put my finger on it but somehow the song's not connecting with Toni as much as I expected it to. Maybe it's because of the lyrics but sometimes it came across more like a background track that you synced moves to, rather than something that narrated her story. Other than that though, I think this flowed nicely and the ending was pretty class with the MYC final. Showing her celebrating the win at the beginning and the end was a nice little touch but you only really "get it" when you watch it the second time around. One small thing, I didn't like the "Cry Bird" font. A simpler handwriting font would've probably fit better.
Vote: CPZero. All videos were totally up to task, but I feel like Cheeze and Paroxysm brought the more complete package here
TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
CPZero vs. Soulfrost X ArgudenHLS vs. STS & Everett
CPZero- Love the name of this duo, btw. Wow, what can I say about this video except...I need more like this in my life.
Synching was solid, pacing was very well kept with every change in tone and the aesthetics were pleasing without diminishing quality of video nor coming off oversaturated in color. Solid job, guys.
SoulFrost X ArgudenHLS- A video that was artsy, but not overly so which made it enjoyable.
Synching was very good though it was off on rare instances. The Pace kept up well with the slowing or rising in tone of the video. Effects were timed to a T and I left the video feeling very enthused. Well done.
STS & Everett- Talk about a video with a whirlwind of emotions, this had it in spades.
Syncing was good even inventive in some points. Pacing was very good. Aesthetics were solid without oversaturating or diminishing the quality of the video. But it was the chronology that caught my eye the most. If anyone needed to be introduced to Toni Storm, this is it.
It really is amazing what 2 people can do for one video. You can just see the hours, days and times they spent trying to deliver the products they produced. Each deserve a gold star.
But there was one star that shined a bit brighter in luminance than others. VOTE: CPZero.
