It’s been a while I wanted to organize a certain project, but I’ve never really got the time to do it. Now that I have a bit more time, I can finally start it. And I hope it will draw your interest.
I don’t know if a lot of people know Nujabes, he was a japanese DJ who produced a lot of hip hop music. Most of you probably know him thanks to his contributions in the Samurai Champloo OSTs, and the opening Battlecry. And yeah, if I talk about him to the past that’s because he passed away in 2010.
Already before his death, I wanted to make a AMV with some of his musics, but never really got the motivation to do it. When I heard about his death I wanted to make a tribute MEP, but I already had a load of projects, so I postponed this one.
In short, 2 years have passed, and i’m more motivated for this, and I'll have more time from now (since i don’t plan of editing something for the moment)
Nujabes feat. Cise Starr - Lady Brown
I cut the music in 19 parts. The 19th will be for the credits.
It makes a lot of different tracks for a music of 3 minutes. Tracks are 9seconds long, so it won’t be long enough to show a short story, or for trying something too complex. But at least, you should be quickly able to make something catchy. The pace of the song is quite fast, but thanks to that the whole video could be more homogeneous, if everyone do the things correctly.
For the transitions between the tracks, I’ll let the editors make it. Masking, a simple effects, or even a hard cut can be enough if it’s well done.
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE TRACKS HEREI
Contrary to what you may think, I expect a lot of technical stuff for this MEP. The music I chose is not easy to edit, mainly because of its fast pace. But I think it should be easy to make something stylish and groovy.
There’s no theme, but by listening the music, and reading the lyrics you should be able to understand what i want to make. So i won’t accept full action tracks, or horror/psyche stuff....I want romance/sentimental tracks. It can be a bit ecchi, but I’m not hosting a Hentai MEP either xD. Your part can be a bit fun, but it’s not a AMV Hell or whatever xD
Resolution : 1280*720 or 848*480 (it would depend of the anime used)
Final render have to be in lagarith, huffyuv or Utvideo.
You can choose 3 tracks max, using this form :
Code: Select all
For the anime, I highly recommend you to choose one, it helps me to make an idea about what you want to do, and if it will match with the other animes chosen. But no live-action, or weird animation.
No various with 9999 different series, but i can accept if you want to use 2 or 3 different shows.
If you wish to make a collab on a track it’s fine. And if you wish to make a collab on 2 following tracks, it’s ok too.
For the inscription to the project : 6th april
To finish your track : August (but you will probably have finish by then )
