There are some nice videos out there, but I feel like it doesn't suit the audio. You have this dramatic song, yet the video itself is set at a much slower pace. It's incredibly boring in comparison to the music.
When I make a video, I choose the song first then specifically plan the video around that song. I always use a fade or flash transition, depending on the music. When there's a beat, I add a light flash. I feel like it flows better that way. It's also more interesting to watch.
Does anyone else notice that, or is it just me? If it doesn't bother you, then what does? What do you think makes a music video great? Feel free to add details.
