SHYKKE: THE UNKNOWN BY PANIQ

Shykke: The Unknown by Paniq

Written by anthony on 19. February 2018 09:46


After a little hiatus, the CS editing world finally gets a new movie from Paniq.  Yes, that Paniq.  The Kirby-Overdrive-he-won-second-place-and-100-Euros Paniq.  He's back with a bit of a paid project this time around.  Apparently someone thought he does a great job with them there editing tools and wanted to employ his abilities to sync video game footage with music.  So, Mr. Gronek obliged and what we got is something, well, different.

Paniq has always been a stylish bloke.  As always, his intros and outros are fun to look at.  Some frozen player death animations accompany a haunting organ instrumental as the intro leads into a simple, but nice looking title screen.  Then all hell breaks loose.  How to describe the fragpart of The Unknown?  Well, I suppose the best way is to quote my Steam messages to Paniq himself.

estrux: obviously it doesnt have much love
estrux: quite some crazy cuts/cams there
estrux: doesnt have the paniq control/tempo
estrux: but hey.  you got money in your pocket at the end of the day

To elaborate, the rushed editing is apparent throughout the movie.  No real flow or fluidity to the movie is apparent.  Free cams play victim to jarring cuts and extreme velocity settings.  That being said, we do get some fun sync at times and there are no effects to distract the viewer.

As Paniq has admitted, its "not the best he can do".  And frankly, it's hard to not agree.  We all know the level Paniq can edit at.  Hopefully once his bills are paid off, we can get a movie that has all the loving Grzegorz can give.  Anthony rates this movie...

5/10.

I'm curious, is it possible to turn off these shitty zebra pattern skins? Or they are permanent written in demos and you can do nothing. Probably I asked about this some time ago...

Movie: after 4 minutes I was bored. Then I read it's painq's movie.  I'm disappointed.
