STS: This was a cool vid. Love the song choice. Are you a fan of loli king x? I've heard you use two songs he's used, smother and this one (could just be a coincidence). Would have been awesome to see another minute of this vid. Either way this was still good.
EXPLICIT: First time seeing a video from you and I'm now a fan. If this took you a day to make then that's insane. It was well structured and I enjoyed the transitions you used. If only you joined early enough in order to sign up for the next competition, would have wanted to see you compete in one of the matches. Can't wait to see more from you!
Wow; I am really suprised to know someone in the wrestling community to know loli x king*, yeh he is the one who has inspired this style of editing I have been doing... Big fan of all the chill vibe amvs and been tryna use the same editing style for my wrestling videos.
STS: Cool I guess, it's 28 seconds so there's really nothing much to give feedback on. It was actually looking interesting for the first 10 seconds or so till you couldn't keep up the pace anymore which isn't okay for a 20 second video lol. I suppose you're trying for a specific type of aesthetic which is cool I guess.
Explicit in all caps: I thought this was cool, although I think pacing was an issue for you as well although it's a bit more acceptable in this case since you made a over 2 minute video. I think you probably should have chose a song a bit slower pace to fit your technique level. The overall flow of the video was pretty good tho, for the pace you did set, you kept everything steady throughout the video. Pretty cool to see a Muta video, if you haven't seen AD's yet I'd suggest you check it out.
STS - Hey, look who's back! Just can't stay away, can you? Anyway, this was... fine. I mean, it was good while it lasted, but what was the point? Not even sure how I'm supposed to give feedback on 28 seconds of the same old Seth Rollins highlights. But I guess there's nothing wrong with it.
EXPLICIT - So, since Durty already mentioned it, I guess it's not too narcissistic for me to point out that this video felt a little bit like a sequel to my Great Muta video from oh so many years ago. You even used footage from the same short film that they made for his character that I used for the intro in my video. But enough about me, this was a really solid video. You used a super fast-paced song, so I don't really mind that you didn't sync every single beat. I think you still managed to match the energy of the song with your clip selection. And I'm always happy to see a video that doesn't rely on effects in every single shot, and just lets the action speak for itself. Definitely excited to see more from you in the future.
STS: GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER! Because this was dope and I want more. Can't be having you banned every comp and shit. I enjoyed this. This whole chillwave vibe you started messing with works so great. Obviously a short video, but its acceptable in these kind of exhibition matches. I always look at these matches as a means to try things out and get as much thoughts on it as possible. I would work on your color correction more. It was fine here, but I think you could expand on theme more and create an even better sort of look. Also seems like your contrast was bumped up a little too much. I liked what I'm seeing so far.
Explicit: WE NEED MORE OF THESE! I like what you were going for. And you made Muta look like the badass that he really is. For this video, the biggest area of concern is probably your structuring. There were places where parts felt too grouped together. I.E. the facial expressions and his entrances. It's good that you understand that, but I would loosen it up a bit. Throw in some moves here and there. I did like that you dragged out some clips, giving us time to breathe. Great work, my dude!

Your video was definitely inspiration for me to take my video and do something big and cool with it. I've been watching a lot more of Japanese wrestling and older events and stars like Muta, Liger, Hayabusa, Kobashi, Misawa, etc. All the clips were found through YouTube and I could tell which you used as well. Only thing I wish was that I could find more higher quality clips since most of mine was lower. The sync was a bit of a challenge as I was trying to get a lot out of a small selection of clips. Effects are my worst enemy, so I said screw it.
I, do, appreciate you and other top editors giving me feedback and enjoying the video. The video is a good first impression, but I got some more things to work on. Thanks guys.
Also wish that STS had a longer video b/c he is a great editor and needs his talents showcased more. Will gladly face him again if he wants.

Psycho Driver '91: So, I got tired of using a name I thought was cool when I was 11 so now I'm using a name that I'll think is stupid when I'm 20. At least it's easier to say.
