i gotta say after looking at the polls, I'm really surprised Game Over doesn't have more votes. It's my second favorite video in this heat and has the best FX in the competition by far i think. I guess others don't see it that way tho.

From a purely gameplay perspective, I think it's exceptional- probably in the top 5 out of the entire competition (and i don't feel I'm stretching that). I will always remember that cross-map tac exterm on that random forge world map. That is definitely the most memorable reach clip I've ever seen.

However, I just don't feel it's edited nearly as well as some of these other videos. It all depends what entertainment value you're seeking out of these videos, and I just feel like that the attention grabber of the montage genuinely sucked, plain and simple.

Going to start posting a bit more in depth on my votes. But not going too far...waiting for the next two heats to really dive in. Way harder heat IMO...but voted for these 5.

Diesel M2 - Some of the most original GP. Plus he makes Reach actually entertaining to watch. Do you realize how hard this is? Some amazing footage in here that truly does deserve respect. As far as the edit...yes, it wasn't too insane. But I think the GP makes up for it entirely...and being an editor and someone who is super critical on editing...that should say something. Honestly its my #5 pick...but I still think this deserves to go another round at least.

FatRat - Easily some of my favorite GP in this comp. Produced some high quality content here in terms of the GP and the variety of kills. Though social always takes a way a bit...this really kept me into it. The edit was really solid overall too. Though he did a great job with his won shit and I didn't see too many technical errors from him. Really impressed overall and I think just with the GP alone, it should go through.

ROOTS - One of my favorites from this past year. B really brought it to us and I loved watching this video. I thought it was a sleeper and just came out of no where. Really excited to see this doing well. As far as GP went...it made me want to play Halo. It was absolutely that type of video for me and I thought the edit was surprisingly awesome. Though the entire edit was pretty damn solid...from the song choice to the pacing it kept me interested. Definitely deserves a vote.

Delighful - In terms of creativity this video really does bring it home. Though it was pretty well done in terms of editing. I thought that the basic principles were pretty well there and I think that the 3D in this was pretty fucking sweet. I really enjoyed watching it and the video overall kept me drawn in which is always the thing I look for in videos. As always the GP was really solid from Dkahre. Another video that in my opinion deserves a vote.

GameOver - Bringing these two editors together is dangerous. I have always been a massive fan of MK and GC has really stepped up his game over the past few years. I loved watching this video in terms of VFX and other things that did here and there. It was definitely the most colorful and one of the less serious more "fun" edits in the comp. The GP was pretty solid too, don't think it was necessarily a top GP contender but it was still a fun watch in terms of footage. Another deserving vote from me.

This heat sucks honestly. Very hard. Always trying to keep it at 5.

Kiko deserves to go through for just the way she creates her content. I'm not a HUGE fan...but she is damn creative.

Clairty is my favorite short video in this contest, but I just don't think it was long enough and I don't think it did enough to get a vote.

Jump Theory is another one that bothered me that I couldn't vote for..but I just couldn't do it. Not with the other killer videos in here.

5 Deadly Venom's, Heatseeker and Iron Sky were kick ass too...bummer that I couldn't vote for you guys!

Goodluck to everyone!

What is so incredibly impressive about diesels m2 is that it takes its time. When you watch all these videos in this contest and then watch that u have to reset your brains expectations from trying to follow the clip properly to appreciating the clip. There are a few videos out here that have thankfully been appreciated that follow the same thought, but this is the best example i think because of the multikills anyone else would cut up (incl me). He sets clips up taking time where others fit multiple clips. This is what you do when you have good GP people, you show it. All of it, the decision making process in between shots, where to look next, what way to walk, that tension and the little mistakes or differences from your own choices are what makes a clip have character and interest. It sets it appart.
ive never had clips like that, especially multikills so i dont bash anyone who helps clips look and feel better as long as theyre not corrupting clips consistently. But this should be the basis of ur concept if you do. Dress it up, make the clip set ups more creative/more interesting angles, fill in some cool fx, explode the guy who got stuck into 10000 colors and have him fly into space using a 3d rendered spartan and ill love it all if you show the clips like this.

The soundtrack makes room for that, however its also dangerous because of the constant pace it sets, soundtrack dictated rest and climax moments are rare so you have to make them happen pure from pacing and set up. When i finally felt it was time to wrap up the video i checked and saw it ended 30 seconds from there, thats fucking impressive.

Dont get me wrong, I massively enjoy if not love many a video with more conventional clip editing and there's major skill involved in finding a balance there as well. I'm not a purist in an exclusive way, but I just love it when a vid manages to pull this concept off. E.G. I like my own videos even tho I've force-synched and cleaned up clips quite a bit over the years. There's many happy middle grounds with their own charm, I just like this the best conceptually.
