Enourmous Penis: I left it out because we really lack musical funny ones in this bunch, because the funniest clips really tend to be the 'skits,' but the video quality really sets it apart from the rest I hate to say. If we can keep more musical ones for the sake of balance, I'd like to try, since we already have so few.
Tutu Chicken Dance: It was so short and is so blatantly an audience participation one to keep the energy up. People WILL be clapping by the second verse, so it's too strong in that regard, and short enough to harm nothing by leaving it in I felt, even if the joke itself isn't necessary a 'lol' situation.
Intro: In terms of the intro and end, I'm getting to the point of just saying 'screw it, let's just use the time for pure entertainment' and cut out ALL extraneous stuff. This is basically a warmup for AMVS5 and a harkening back to some of our funniest moments, so really we should play off of that and cut out all the 'big production' stuff. Plus Redeath isn't known very much outside of select cons, many of which don't seem to overlap AMVS's crowd or those who will download on the .org. What could be done is to incorporate a clip as the intro, like "GET UP, GET UP, GET UP, DROP THE BOMBSHELL... *BOOOOOOOOM* And just have a title sequence come in, and 'reheated' becomes ironic with a nuke going off behind it. I could potentially do some aftereffects work to have some god-rays going between 3D text as an eye catch from the nuke. Problem there is we may have to find that nuke clip to lengthen it so we have time for the title sequence but that shouldn't be too hard. Plus Darkness is on youtube, perhaps we could message him.
Kids React: The attention being everywhere is my worry for Kids React, and realistically no matter how hard we try, I don't see that ever being solved considering it's the credits. Clips under the credits is already risky, but credits, animations, and tags is just asking for trouble. If I were completely honest about it, I would say this is a hetalia fans only thing. I don't particularly find it very wide-ranged in its gratification outside of that demographic. If I were to estimate audience reactions, I'd say the girls would be entertained, some guys would be entertained by the girls being entertained, but probably some confusion on what the joke is exactly unless you've seen the video before. An experiment I think is worth trying is seeing what clips we can get under the credits, and see about foregoing our tags this time in place of having each clip labeled as ours. This way we save on time by getting clip/credit overlap a bit as well. May not work, but worth a shot.
All Your Base/Internet for Porn: Ironic nostalgia for All Your Base and Internet For Porn was how I felt, but I too must agree that All Your Base is catchy and well-edited to go with the joke, plus the melting at the end is its own joke. Internet for Porn doesn't quite have as strong a clip, but was short enough I felt it would fit the nostalgia factor. If forced to choose though, I'd sacrifice it due to the uncertainty of where the audience would stand currently.
End: I'm for cutting out nearly all the text, if not all, at the end, or shoving it all on one screen. May seem rushed, but who cares about advertising our shit. They'll see it or their won't, and all they need is to know where and how to find it later. Nor do half of them care that AMVS6 is in production if they've seen 5, because we already announced it. All things must go toward clips above all else, even at the risk of being rushed in my opinion.
My clips: Moonbunnychan, even if you're the only one who is able for now, I'd like you and Deuce to take your picks on which of my clips you'd like to cut (if any). I would prefer most of my AMVS3 clips get precedence to remain, since I want a reaction vid of them for once, but I feel it's best to leave the choice to others. I really like all of mine, so I really can't choose... sorry, it's kinda pathetic.
