Final Cut

Here is Sublime Transcendence's final cut for Sunburnt In December's song "Like a Match to an Arsonist". The video contains horror and gore aspects with the main inspiration behind the idea being the 1981 film An American Werewolf In London directed by John Landis.

WARNING: The video does contain flashing lights and extremely fast paced editing.

Digipak Additions

Conor has made some edits to the digipak, and have now included a sticker detailing the contents, and also a spine with the name of the digipak, a catalogue number and the record label on it. In addition to THAT, I have also changed the format of the inside so that there is a pullout/booklet for the lyrics, printed on every page, giving the text more room and also allowing for more images to be incorporated into the digipak. To see the largest version of the pullout, click here. Lastly, I have edited the tracks on the back of the digipak to suit the conventions more and changed the font to a more eroded and distorted one too.

It includes aspects of layering and a whole new design, focusing on a still from the music video, a bloodied band member with a discarded instrument.

Latest Rough Cut (Rough Cut 9)

Here is our ninth rough cut for Sunburnt In December's "Like a Match to an Arsonist". In this cut we have followed the previous feedback from rough cut 7 (i.e. Implementing a werewolf sound at the start where there is a shot of the full moon, thus proving anchorage of the beast).

For this rough cut we have used the annotation tool for show feedback received. If you do not wish to see this feedback please ensure the annotation tool is turned off. Additional feedback is welcomed either in the comments below this post or in the comment section on YouTube.

Rough Cut 8

Today (30th March 2012) Sublime Transcendence created their eighth rough cut. We have addressed the majority of the feedback received. However we are planning to add a werewolf howl in the near future and address the issue of there not being enough focus on Sam. We will resolve this by editing clips we already have or record some close-ups of Sam vocalising. Although we will have to be careful whilst doing the latter as there isn't any snow covering the ground.

This is our latest rough cut:

Latest Rough Cut (Rough Cut 7)

Yesterday (28th March 2012) Sublime Transcendence finialised a new rough cut, to Sunburnt In December's "Like a Match to an Arsonist". We have taken in feedback and it is reflected in this cut. We have also taken inspiration from other music videos which are in or lose to the genre, metalcore. Examples of music videos which have influenced this cut is Metallica's "Enter Sandman" and Miss May I's "Masses of a Dying Breed".

We are planning to recieve feedback in the near future and make the required changes.
