HS BY STYX

HS by Styx

A little under a month ago, this cRZY man that I know linked me to a Reddit thread about a movie showcasing the frags of Kevin 'HS' Tarn.  I proceeded to watch it and then responded to the director, Styx, like so:

I really think its awesome when more editors put some creativity, time, and editing into a movie. The syncing and atmosphere are definitely prevalent here. The kills are absolutely fantastic as well.

However, the biggest downfall here is your use of the campath tool. The freecams are so hectic, disorienting, and out of control. I really think you missed the mark by not creating them in a more fluid and smooth fashion. I understand you wanted to sync the velocity shifts to the song, but it just ruins the pacing and overall expience.

I think you have huge potential. You have an eye for sequencing and directing. Maybe with some tempering of your style and more moderate use of the camming system, you can become great!

Styx seemed to suffer from the trendy, mainstream editing style that plagued the COD scene... and the entirety of Russia.  The constant stop-go-stop/slow-fast-slow/jerky camera movements that a lot of inexperienced editors utilize kills flow and disrupts the viewing experience.  Despite that, I can see potential in this aspiring artist.  Hopefully he continues to grow and refine his craft in the future.
