    This is where I will put up all of my Firefall music videos, some sort of "making of" videos, updates, and little previews/teasers. Everything I make game-related is uploaded on my Youtube channel.

    Made this video using ONLY in-game footage, for the interesting visuals all I used was a myriad of mirror effects, using cuts and speed ups to sync up to the music. No fancy vfx nor trickery used.

    Used footage without mirror effects to show the use of the flow of the footage itself, the cuts, and speed ups I synced up to the music. And finished off with taking apart one of the mirror effects patterns I used. Kinda like... subtle video editing tips.

    I asked Alpha Orchestra to make a song for the project, he gave me this sweet track to use. Prepare for drums and chanting! This video is his upload. Check his stuff out:

    I might have overdone some effects and visuals while I was playing around on the editor... Oopsies.

    Special thanks to:




    They let me use their Firefall gameplay and other awesome videos for this project :)

    This is what the editor looked like:

    If I had not rendered the graphics I would have had over 10 video layers, not even sure if Sony Vegas 8 can support that...

    very nice, very artistic?(is that the word?) and creative. Very mood setting, i like. Good job. I can see i really need a new editing program soon :)

    zOMG you my man are an Artist, your work along with the music you have chosen to blend with it are damn near inspirational, in your most recent video there is a shot from far off it's dark but I can see the SIN tower glowing, in that simple shot the surge of hope made me think of this "like Holy beacons shining in the dark, the Light of our SIN will always show us there are others, in the darkness" or something it was poetic when it struck but then faded
