This was due a while ago but obviously I was being lazy so I was late in uploading this.
Sorry about the horrible song cuts D: I had a bit more AE 3D Camera work in this but the project crashed and killed itself 4 times wasting many hours of work so I just gave up and left that segment out.
Anyway this is a promo video for the Loveless Act Studios 2nd MEP which will be out sometime next year(hence why I had to get this done and uploaded before 2010 which is only a few days away haha -laughs sheepishly-)

What kind of videos do you like to edit most?
Eh romance I think. I like to edit whatever comes to mind when I hear the song.
What is your major weak point?
Consistency. My videos are often random with no line of idea or concept to keep it straight. I could jump from one scene thats depicting romance to a random effect scene. Plus I am always lazy so I end up shortening videos D: Oh and I'm weak at transitions too o__o
And your strong point?
Um...creativity in effects I guess? I love to experiment with new effects all the time.
Okay one of the few things I did to keep myself sane while working out how AE worked was to read fanfics. Well actually the one I'm about to recommend is one I only found er..today xD I was looking for something to kill time while this video uploaded but I would have still recommended that you read it because "Salvation" - a Naruto fanfic is something that I'm sure true readers of fiction will enjoy :) The drama in it is so intense I think I was sitting hyperventilating while reading it o__o (maybe I'm just a drama addict) By the way it's ItaSaku :) So if you don't like that pairing please don't read it,and don't leave comments bashing them cause I like them.
Oh it also contains alot of spoilers for the Naruto manga so you should be warned if you've not caught up to the latest parts. And some parts are so emotional I recommend tissues on hand. Yes really. I almost cried when reading it.And still feel like I do o__o Now I kinda want to go back and read it again....
Although not done very subtle they are in the video somewhere :)
If you really can't find them then look in the video tags -__-
Programs used: Sony Vegas Pro 9.0 [editing] , Adobe Photoshop CS4 [the colour masks] and Adobe After Effects CS3 [The 3D City - I did that myself with the help of a tutorial by Andrew Kramer over at Video Copilot. The light streak at the beginning and the the ring were parts I just edited from the one that was pre-made on Video Copilot. I would have done it myself but I didn't have time D: ]
Yeah so the only part that had AE was from 0:00 - 0:25. Everything afterwards is pure Vegas only.
I couldn't find any character artwork for Stella or Noctis so I just used a screenshot of Noctis from the trailer, as for Stella I found this amazing piece of fanart off deviantart :
Well hope you enjoy the video! ^^ Sorry about lack of uploads but I've been busy with school projects and whatnot. Sadly though I'm still kinda behind in the work o__o I slacked off too much last year xD
[sidenote] The correct spelling for me(UK) is really COLOUR with an additonal "u" but I'm guessing most of my subs are from America therefore the correct spelling for you guys would be COLOR :)
