How much has to take the video?
More effects, more is always better!.....Why don't you watch the older collabs a few times and try to figure out what it is that made them so good?
Thanks , i am now going to watch them all again. I am also working on another edit im trying to pack with effects and good-looking transitions without over doing it too much. -Alex
Can you ever over do it with effects and transitions?
my advice from having done the collab last year is, dont think of it as a small project. it takes ages. secondly you dont need as many transitions as i used last year. also. really push people to send things in on time because the longer you wait the harder it gets. thirdly. spend a lot of time on the names. a good effects on the names can make a big difference. dont just leave it till last minute. and check the spelling of all the names a 1000000 times. (sorry eljas) ya thanksmax
To submit a video, upload it somewhere using something like Dropbox or Mediafire and then email a link to me at: collab2011 "at" diabolo.ca. Don't forget to include your name (or forum username if you'd prefer) and location.
Based on a couple of videos I watched, your music choice doesn't seem like it would be a good fit for a collaboration video. Heavy metal doesn't go over very well in diabolo videos, most people prefer some sort of electronic or laid-back rap/hip-hop.Some of them didn't even have that much editing in them, it seemed like. Mostly just cuts from one clip to the next, except for that THUD video.
Metal or especially rock can work, its not about genres, it's about how well the edit fits with the music.
Typically, stating that you are lazy over and over again won't get you any part of it.
I think it's too early to think about the diabolo.ca collab. Maybe wait until around september at earliest?
Lucas for the king... except quality of the voice in "Sticktrap Concept"
Maybe this year we could a try to have two editors.Each editor could edit roughly half each the combine them, or even edit a half each then send each other their edits and edit over them again (without deleting stuff, just adding stuff).What do you guys think?-Alex
No. No. No. How would you organize that, get the same theme, don't use the same clips and get the same style? It'd be a mess..
Ideally, Nico would be able to do it again since (IMO) the 2010 collab was the best one in terms of editing and effects.
