Ja jeg synes som sædvanlig det her var noget værre skrammel, men jeg er heller ikke meget til kinddans, jeg vil hellere slås!

can someone tell me which codec i need to install for this?

This one is quite interesting.
Chilly xerxes soundtrack with visuals that feel like walking/driving around beeing drunk/drugged.
I like it - especially the music did it for me :)

Made a youtube for it too:

excellent trip but effects are too strong.

Boring video with okish music, it has no demo value for me, sorry

I got some codec complaints. Watched the video in the data folder in vlc instead... aha youtube link!

Trippy! thumb up for using some video! Other groups should follow suit. It isn't illegal anymore :) I don't like the black frame though. If it was meant to simulate a phototechnique I would imagine it would change depending on the light coming from the scene. Maybe a simple radial fadeout would work better? I've experimented with such borders a lot and I tend to fall back to something simple every time :P

I adore the music, but feel like the visuals relied too much on the video, so... oink

can't even give it a piggie. okay, it is something different but ... i don't know.

Feels like watching a video shot with the wrong lens.

a thumb for the music
a piggy for the demo

Cool trippy stuff. Maybe the colours were a bit dull at times. Agree with loady about the framing/border..

Looks like a dream...
I would have preferred the voice without these cuts.

I agree with Backspace, but this dream is not a good one. Normally I love everything what Xerxes is doing, but these voice cuts ruined the whole soundtrack.

I have only watched this at the party, but it was indeed a surprisingly good experience for me.

This is a realy bad demo. music saves it. But im a little confused here, usualy norweigans thumb up norweigan productions... but the dannes.. hmm smells like eurovision song contest here ;)

Really cool. I'd like it even more if I didn't work on a similar concept right now...
rulezadded on the 2011-10-24 22:51:34 by chock chock
The music is odd and not the masterpiece I'd expect from Xerxes.

As for the demo, it's just a cliched driving video disguised with some horrible blurs and overlays. I've seen better "Trips to the party" type videos.

It reminds me of Ban the Orphan by Fearmoths and seems to be trying too hard to be weird and arty.

This must have been quite a journey on big screen.

Really nice, even though at moments it feels too much like testing various things.

nice trip

I'd like to give another thumb. Really like how it sounds and looks. Sure it's a bit filter heavy left and right but in general they do a good job stylizing the video. These are not TP party report videos. And even if they were..
added on the 2011-10-25 15:38:41 by superplek superplek
Seriously different. Very beautiful music. In combination with the strange visuals.. for sure no fail!

But a piggie because Klaus is my friiieennnd (or maybe not anymore after I told him that I didnt like this track :/ )

I do not really like the demo, but I absolutely adore the track, and especially the vocals.
xerxes: please let me know if I'm allowed to use the vocals for some sort of remix.

For the music.

I liked this a lot! The great track caught me off guard which doesn't happen too often. For me it's all about direction with this one and that's totally fine. Not every demo needs to show off.
rulezadded on the 2012-03-20 11:18:09 by Paralax Paralax
Very nice tune. Regarding the video, its a good idea, but looks a bit messy. So piggie from me

Completely missed this. Very nice soundtrack and great visuals. Colors could be improved a lot though and little improvements here and there could be made, but still very good.

Also one of the best tracks I've heard from Xerxes, recently at least :)

i'm immensely proud to see this nominated for scene.org awards in favor of both Xerxes (best soundtrack) and myself (most original concept).
yep, congrats to both of you!

thanks scene.org for the nominating this. that took some serious balls from you guys seeing that the comments and feedback are all over the place :)

Upon couple re-watches, this is one of the best productions of last year for me. I really like the effect and how it's a bit "rough-around-the-edges". Same thing with the direction, though in the regard there are a couple missteps like the times then the camera just zooms into the frame and the visuals become near static, doesn't look too good either. But overall this is just fantastic. One of those few cases where the visual and aural experience tie together extremely well.

The soundtrack is really a beauty but the rest is below average.

Great! Quite different from what I'm used to see. The music is excellent and the visuals fit well.

the visuals are a bit generic though..

Demo says:

Error opening AVIStreamGetFrameOpen - your video codec might be out dated!

...despite running the avi standalone worked fine?

Judging from the video I can´t say this is worth a second watch anyway =P
