Very nice montage, I like how you still manage to show me things I've never seen before in this game.

Ok so here's what I actually thought about this video.

I'll start off with what I did not like about this entry. Although I enjoyed it, I definitely did not find this montage as entertaining as many of the previous projects you have released. As original and unique as the clips were, at times I felt like the clips lingered way too long. This montage could have served its purpose in 5 minutes, rather than 7. Furthermore, after watching the video a few times, I really didn't see the effort or motivation that was present in your previous projects. If you watch "Now That's What I Call Rape" or "The Experience", your 5th H3 montage doesn't really compare to them. Honestly this video felt liked a rushed attempt to just submit something in the contest.


Now here's what I really enjoyed about this montage. The first two song choices were great and complimented the footage nicely. The third song, not so much in my opinion, but that's probably just my personal music preference. The clips were stellar as always. I love watching a Salaya montage because I know that I'll not only be entertained, but I'll also learn a few things from the video. The simple editing fits your style perfectly, and is a breath of fresh air in a sea of eye-bleeding, over-edited Halo montages. Another thing that stood out to me is your angle work. Many editors throw in a shit ton of angles in the middle of a clip and all it does is distract the viewer from the gameplay. When you use an angle, it has a purpose everytime. That is something I can appreciate.

That's all I have to so today. Goodjob Salaya. I hope to see you on MCC.

Thanks, I appreciate the write-up.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head there though, my biggest realization while making this is that I no longer had the desire/motivation to make something great/epic. Whether or not I achieved that feat in the past the motivation was there to attempt it.

After not playing for like 8 months I started playing some this summer just to see if I could come up with something for the contest. In fact I remember earlier on you had said to me in a thread something along the lines of "I hope you make something big for this" and at the time I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to. Eventually I started getting some clips and decided that I would enter something. My relationship with Halo though at this point is that I can only play for so long before I just can't play anymore, and by the end of the summer I was basically burned out.

As far as it being something rushed just to submit something to the contest that's yes and no. Like I said earlier I attempted to edit it more make it longer clean it up etc. etc. but it was bad, I can't edit or enjoy editing so this result IMO is honestly better than my non "rushed" attempt. But you're right after a while I just said fuck it and literally added sample text and rendered it.

I was debating on whether or not to submit it though because even though that was my original motivation in making this video I wasn't completely happy with how it turned out and even though I don't care about or ever thought I would even be close to winning being put next to the great montage makers I didn't want to enter something I considered sub-par to my own standards. In the end though I liked these clips and knew that some people would enjoy them so I just did it anyway.

That's why I didn't do a real write-up in the OP, I preferred people just judged it for what it was instead of the post a vid and make an excuse strategy.


EDIT: In fact my biggest regret of all is that I couldn't make this be as epic as an intro as it was in my head lol

Understandable man. I'm still glad we got to see an entry from you.

Edit: I might steal that Eminem verse for an intro.

I would feel intimidated to be in the same lobby as you...

Great montage and content! Was very entertaining and went very well with the music.

Sick video man, I play similarly to you in a way, screwing with people trying to get funny embarrassing clips, the music choice worked very well with the tage as well!
