You can lead a retard to water, but he'll probably drown. Stupidity shouldn't hold people from reading the definition supplied in the first post.

Quote:
Originality, Cinematography are terms better associated w/ REAL movies.
As opposed to the fake movies that Halo videos are?

Also, for everyone getting insulted with all the stupid high school bullshit that has to happen every time someone gets offended because they cast a vote and made their decision publicly known without any explanation, I'll just supply the following (and probably do this in each thread):
You're a fkn retard for voting for Black Box, unless you can explain why in some detail.
You're a fkn retard for voting for Contractus, unless you can explain why in some detail.
You're a fkn retard for voting for M2, unless you can explain why in some detail.
You're a fkn retard for voting for Frenetic Array, unless you can explain why in some detail.
You're a fkn retard for voting for Line of Sight, unless you can explain why in some detail.
You're a fkn retard for voting for LBYL3, unless you can explain why in some detail.
You're a fkn retard for voting for SQ, unless you can explain why in some detail.

For all the goddam crying everyone does in threads like these, you would be hardpressed to get you bitches to put similar effort into actually validating your own opinion, instead of stomping your feet waiting for people to respect your decision when you refuse to offer any substance behind your reasoning other than a useless, empty sentence.

I appreciate you taking the time to write up your thoughts on each nomination, but obviously with Contractus being my video, and having put in many hours into creating it, and hearing what others have had to say about the angle work, I can't say that I agree with much you said.

Your first point was that the angles weren't smooth, and did not flow with the "feel you were trying to get". I don't quite know what "feel" you think I was trying to get, but every angle was plotted and planned according to what I wanted to do within the video. That brings me to your next point, about the angle at 2:45 being "forced and randomly done". That could not be further from the truth. As I said before, each angle was planned, each transition thought out. The map to map transition on Narrows that you are referring to is very well done in my, and many others, opinion. And when you talk about flow, how can you better keep flow in a transition than to make a seamless change from one clip to another on the same map as the way I did there? Lastly, I'm not quite sure what you're getting at with the art reference, and blank space. A player leaving the scene is not something that was done by accident, or because of lack of attention to detail. It's actually a technique used in lots of films. You see an actor, or car fly past the camera all the time. That's what I was going for. The sense of the chase. The camera not being able to keep up, so to speak.

I'm sorry if my angles didn't fit your intended feel for the video, but they fit mine perfectly. I personally know many people here that would back me up in saying, my angles were very smooth, planned out, and fit the feel and emotion that I was going for in this video. And trust me, I can point out specifics to each angle that would prove the attention to detail I put into these. I don't think anyone on this site quite fully understands the amount of thought I put into this video. Sure, the editing might be simple relative to other entries, but I can tell you I created a video that exactly matched the emotion and feel I was going for.

Edit: You are entitled to your opinion, and I do appreciate you taking the time to write up your thoughts. That is better than I can say about most of the posts in this thread.

I voted for LPYL just because when I think of all of the montages here, that one stands out the most with all of the moving angles and cool ways to show the jumps.

If I had 3 votes I could easily vote for 3 more, they are all good.

Understood. That's part of the reason I added the edit at the end of my post. Good points though.
