Anyone having any suggestions on the actual name of the project? I tried to go with the general Christmas + Anime fusion, but niether Christime nor Anistmas makes sence. It sounds like the name of a disease ^.^'

The Christmas Project is what I actually call it myself, but it's not really THAT original hehe ^.^ So if you have any ideas, just pop it down there :D


Unfortunately my first idea, 'The traditional christmas project and three jerks who did comedies' is too long so instead I think it should be called 'Project Undecided', at least if the currect song/anime choices are anything to judge by.


You do have a point, "Project Undecided." Hmmm. It does have a nice sound to it, but it doesn't have much to do with the whole Xmas subject.
I'lll also keep in mind the first title you gave in. It might be long, but it's Christmassy lol :P

After some searching about for versions of O Holy Night, I'm now pretty sure I'm gonna go with Nat King Cole's version. Because it's short, and it has a nice choir near the end.

Now to find it on CD....

Looking for song help: does anyone know of particularly good versions of "So This is Christmas" (aka "War is Over") out there? I know of the original John Lennon version (the copy I heard, the sound quality wasn't good and it had Yoko Ono singing in it, not a good thing), one by Neil Daimond (Not bad, although I only have it on casette tape) and one by Celine Dion (I would need to dig up the CD to remember wat I think about it.)

Knowing you...is it a techno/metal/heavy rock remix? If I do go with this song, I'd more likely be leaning toward something more traditional-sounding (well, as "traditional" as John Lennon gets.) Unless it's really good techno/rock (but not metal or rap).

"Knowing you"? What exactly are you implying? I'm not sure whether to be offended or not, as I listen to a wide variety of music and happen to have a broad interest across multiple genres.

But to answer your questions, the Cruxshadows are a bit on the goth side of things. I'll grab an mp3 from my friend when I get back to my dorm if you'd like to hear it.

I have some scenes from Patlabor TV that are very holiday, and there is an actual episode featuring a christmas theme

And how does Manheim Steamroller sound?

I'm sorry you have to drop out, yet I understand. Well, it is not a problem really, I can't force you into working on it anyway :P Even myself, I have tonnes of work to do, but seeing everyone working so hard on it, I decided to give it my best shot, and lead the project into being a great success :D !!!

*****************************************************

Rosie-chan

About the War is over song, you might have noticed, but I'm really into that Celine Dion CD. I have tonnes of CDs and versions of the song, but Oh Holy Night and War Is Over are by far my favourites in all, and Celine Dion does them justice. Then again, everyone is free to choose the version he or she wants :)

Glad to have ya :) Here Comes Santa Clause is up on the list :)

About the song .. hmm .. i'm not too convinced :S ANy chance that can be changed ?

*****************************************************

OtakuForLife

And as Various is shall be marked. I can't wait to see this slot of the project hehehe =^.^=

About the name, I think "The X-Mas Effect" is probably the best suggestion so far, so it'll go up to first option :D ! Thanks :D !!!

Project News

I spoke to Voices_of_Ryan, and he might also have a part in the commerial section with his latest trailer !!!! It would be an honour for me to have a part of his trails in a project i'm leading, since I'm a really big fan of his works :)
