I'm not done watching this but HOLY FUCK THE CLIP AT 6:20
Edit: Okay so that intro was amazing. I've never really been a big fan of H1/H2 videos for whatever reason, but this was just an extremely enjoyable video. Amazed it was only your second attempt at a montage. You may have just stolen my vote away for best video so far. Great job.
Haha, appreciate the comment, Eamonn. To this day I am a bit upset looking at that clip at 6:20 believe it or not. I had tried going for a double kill (and hit it(!)) with two headshots but the clip was on such bad kids I didn’t want to save it so I trashed it. Even worse, during the early days of MCC, when CE was a complete fuckin’ mess, you could take fall damage from normal jumping height on ramps that were inclined. I hit this exact same clip on Walshy (www Walshy com) or whatever his tag is now and died after hitting the bottom ENTIRELY because of MCC and MCC alone. I hit the clip frame perfect and died… on Walshy… O’well.
Like Eamonn, I've never been a fan of H1/H2 videos but this was so well made. Soundtrack was relaxing, flowed well, syncing was on point, and the gameplay was great as well. That snipe at 4:52 was probably my favourite clip but the one where you fall out of the map was awesome too. The intro and credits were simple and clean, worked well with the soundtrack and the feel of the whole video. Definitely one of the top entires in the contest so far.
I appreciate the comment, Fatal. Same here, I absolutely love that snipe. In fact, it’s likely a top 3 clip of mine in this video. What makes it even better is the point that it occurred. It was the turning point for a huge run. Ball3s and I were teaming and the kids we were playing with are extremely knowledgeable as well so it’s a fuckin’ dope clip for me. Thanks for commenting, man.
By the way, did you ever release your big H3 project that you were working on? I don’t believe it was your clips but you made a trailer for the video if I remember correctly?
Solid entry, editing came out super clean and nice. Loved the transitions. Gameplay was obviously top notch as well.
Thanks, brother. I am glad you enjoyed!
That was truly glorious, thank you for that. So many times I literally dropped my jaw, and the clip at 6:30 made me a little vocal in my household.
I'll be voting for you, bud.
Right on, thanks for the comment, Zildj. I appreciate you taking the time to watch. I hope you’ve been well, man. It’s been a long time as I’m sure you’re aware. Very nice to hear from you.
Mesmerizing. Best video I've watched in so long.
Amazing work all the way around.
Thanks a lot, Muggsy! I appreciate the comment.
Like I already told you, this is not only the best video to come out this year, but it is up there as one of the best videos I have seen period. Everything in this video was great, the gameplay was unbelievable as I had expected it to be before hitting play, the music was so cool and perfect for your video and the cinematography was just so cool man. We will probably never get a H1 video as good as this ever again unless you make another one someday.
You have my vote locked in. Fucking AWESOME
Damn, I really appreciate all of the comments and praise and the review you gave me initially over IM. I wish I had this final week to take advantage of but it’s comments like these that make it completely okay that I do not have that final week. You’re the man, brother. Can’t wait til your next project and more importantly, as of now, Wizard’s taking my vote through the tourney!
B that was flawless. Really enjoyed the volume of clips and especially how you arranged them. you've always been a master of clip placement and i particularly loved the build up in this. You do with basic clip placement what most "top" editors fail to do in many tages coming out today: keep the excitement up. There's always this impending sense of greatness coming in your videos that makes them so engrossing. This is to montaging like Shakespeare is to theater.
Damn, thanks a lot for the comment, sk0ls. I really wasn’t expecting something this nice. Since I don’t feel I am a talented editor, nor am I creative enough to rely on visual FX (my computer can’t handle it anyways) so my main focus is always on the flow/placement. In fact, long before I begin the editing process, I literally just rewatch my footage over and over, for hours, to determine if it’s something that I still like. I probably still have around 75+ clips that are sitting on my computer that I don’t have plans for. Will likely just release additional highlight videos after the competition I imagine, unless people wanna pick up some projects for practice purposes. Thanks a lot again, sk0ls. Really nice comment.
Haven't posted here in years. This video has earned this next claim: best Halo montage I have ever seen. Period.
B, as per usual, you never cease to amaze, 10/10 Gameplay, 10/10 Editing, 10/10 overall feel.
Fun fact: OxFire is my longest running Xbox LIVE friend. He’s been there since the start of “B SiK”. Thanks so much for stopping in and commenting, Ox. Makes everything feel right. J
Mrw I finished watching this.
B, you fucking monster. absolutely loved the flow of the video throughout the whole thing. all of the spawn sticks were definitely my favorite thing to see aside from all of the rape 2's plays. hope this entry makes it far in the comp!!
Thanks a lot, Hus. I really appreciate the comment. Very much looking forward to your competition entry. It’s going to be heat I’m certain. Keep up the great work, man.
Wow that was amazing. I really appreciate the way you place and cut your scenes, B SiK. Overall a very distinct atmosphere and jaw dropping footage, simply perfect. Currently my favorite entry, hope this does really well.
Thanks a lot, Zhestal. It’s really cool to have people pick up on the entire feel. I didn’t really expect that some on the finer details would be caught. I really appreciate the comment.
Fuckin' GOAT alert! Josh returning to his stomping grounds. I've genuinely never had someone go into such detail in a review for me. I certainly didn't expect it in 2016! Thanks so fuckin' much, man. I really appreciate the effort you've put into this post. Unreal. Thanks so much.
this was montage of the year for me hands down
B chill out stop releasing montage of the year one after another. Totally love this video, it's my new favorite. Gameplay is nuts, music is cool (tbh didn't expect these choices from you), sync on point, lots of creative stuff on both gp and editing department. The angles were perfect, the one at dammy 3:17 was really cool. I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said, amazing job bro![/quote]
Thank YOU for everything. <3 Can’t wait for your new project!
This was a blast to watch. Def one of the top contenders for the movie comp
Thanks so much, dude. I am very glad you enjoyed it.
That was so fucking good. This and Fatals video are my two favorites in the comp easily.
Well done man, you really outdid yourself.
Thanks a lot, Wanny. I am very glad you ernjoyed it! However, I wasn’t aware that Fatal’s video dropped! I gotta get at it! I thought the trailer was dope as fuck!
Thanks again for the comment, dude.
