Re: my first Naruhina AMV
I hate to be that guy, but I will be.
-Not an AMV, it's a MMV (Manga music video or a picture music video. Basically, something not animated), but that's not an issue.
-Not a good MMV
-It's just manga scans. No cropping to focus on scenes or going with the lyrics. It's just a song with manga scans.
Here are some good/amazing MMVS I like. One or two have little animation, but are 99% MMVs. Two are romantic/sad ones, some "sexy ones" (although I'm usually not a fan, it's Kakashi/Mei and someone made a video with Jack Spicer/Wuya featuring Mortal Kombat. Seriously, that exists.) while one is actiony and others are fun. Some are even Naruto related (and of course, Soul Eater and TyZula because I love them). They are different vibes. I did try to keep it romance centric, since that's what yours was, but some other types won't hurt. Please, watch some of them. Don't just copy them, but see how you can use images to make a fantastic video. Sometimes, they are even better than AMVS.
Judging from some of the MMVs, some aren't made in Sony Vegas or anything fancy. Appears to just be WLMM or something like that. They don't gotta be long or mind blowing to be amazing. These are labeled good in my book. About two of the ones I listed don't really fit what I usually like, but the content and editing style is so good, I have like it. They pull at my emotional strings or are just cool looking. I don't like the latter mostly, but sometimes it works and falls into being good, atleast in my taste. Do what you like. I'm not saying yours is trash because all hard work should be appreciated and I do appreciate yours, but as a fan of AMVS/MMV and Naruto, I think you can do much better. It's just not good in my book.
Also, MMVS/AMVS/any tribute video should tell a story. Don't just watch the video, although you'll know if most do. Check the description for a story. You had a story. I just think it was poorly executed.
If you need vidding help like what program/add ons you need to crop or whatever, ask me. I'm friends with some of the makers of the videos. Some have even taken my requests, hence a lot of Wally/Dick, Soul Eater, and TyZula from recurring faces in the examples I posted. Just give me a VM. Ask Youtubers. Just be nice about it. You seem cool and have passion. You'll do well. Make the best out of what you got. Doing all these is not as difficult as you think. You don't need money. Just passion. That's what I'm told by these vidders and the same applies to writing, something I enjoy.
Bottom line, have fun with it. All that matters.
