I think this year can be summed up pretty accurately...
"THAT'S A HUGE BITCH!!"
Anyway, for the most part I must admit, it's an awesome collection considering our collective issues with computers and creativity hits. There are some pretty excellent ones across the board, three or four that could use some touch-ups, and a couple I think that may not belong.The headbanging
one wasn't really considered finished, but more of a test that I think we all agreed wasn't really working. A noble shot, but I think we can leave that one out. The length of this thing isn't really important if the quality is there.
The 'You don't win friends with Salad'
one, I understand the reasoning, but the clip choice is just not really working to make it very funny. There's no sync really, it's like it was pasted over the audio without any more work. I recognize it as simpsons audio, but I just think it needs a much better scene and maybe a punchline. I don't know the episode it's from since I don't want simpsons, but if there is a punchline to that joke, I'd recommend using it somehow and using something different than the Lucky Star opening. Otherwise that one's kind of weak I'm sorry to say.Defying gravity
was great. Little longer than expected, but that makes it that much better when the joke hits.
The drinking one and the 007Chibiusa were both cute ^^Fall to pieces
was perfect in all the wrong ways.Never had a friend like me
is kind of an inside joke, doesn't really stand on its own, but I guess it's short enough that it won't matter. Little inside joke never hurt anyone."I say hey"
was pretty good ^^ I especially love her face with "What's going on."THAT'S A HUGE BITCH!!!"I just had sex"
is probably one of the most perfect things I've ever seen.Cut off wiener
is short and sweet... give or take the subject matter >.>Perfect day
is... well... heh ^^ I love it, but I kind of feel like it should be cut at "nothing can go wrong" and let everyone who knows just kind of go "Yeah... bullshit" in their minds ^^Lots and lots of jets and planes! ...and pantsu!!Can't stop rock and roll
is good, but I feel like there are stronger clip choices for a couple of scenes, especially when the guitar starts riffing, I kinda wanted to get into it, but the scenes just didn't pull me into the action of the awesome music.THAT'S A HUGE BITCH!!!It's bacon
is perfect.Sailor Moon rise above
is a bit similar to the defying gravity one... not too sure what to do with this honestly...
Sentry mode activated... searching... I see you......... deploying....McGuyver
is perfect. Only thing it needs is to not get cut off. I'd say let it go for another half-second so it doesn't cut off and let it cut from the laughter. It kind of hurt to hear it get cut off where it did.DaVinci's workshop
is great, except that I'd love to see more subtle footage for "You couldn't have grabbed me one of his original notebooks" because the current footage is just a bit too intense. If that gets switched out, I think it'll be perfect.I'm a man
is a good one ^^ Maybe beef up the audio a bit and it'll be easier to understand.Hatched superstar
is short and cute.Umbrella
cute is perfect.THAT'S A HUGE BITCH!!!
(Skipping over mine and Captpan6's)
The Clannad Falling
one is... not particularly great... and yet not bad... too long though. Two verses is all it's funny for I think unfortunately. There's really nothing else to it.Trigun White Mage
is pretty good, but I think it can have stronger footage. Like 'pussy' showing the cat for a split second and then the word 'healer' doesn't land very well. I think it'd be better if you showed something ironic or a jab at a random character who heals from something else. Could be from a game or anything, just an otaku inside joke. But most importantly is I don't recognize the characters beyond Vash. Honestly, I think the clip would have a lot more double meaning if you were to use Wolfwood instead as the other character. There's no shortage of footage of him, or them together, and it'll mean so much more I think. And also, I have herpes......THAT'S A HUGE BITCH!!!
...in case it's not obvious, that too could pretty easily become a running gag....... SOOOOOO many multiple meaning possibilities!
EDIT:Quick extra thoughts:Just had sex
- Don't fade the end, just cut it off, it'll be that much funnier when it goes into the test pattern.
I forgot about She Drives Like Crazy
- This one is a sad situation, because AMV Hell did it before with Azumanga footage, and that was stronger... this one doesn't have anyone panicking in reaction to the crazy driving, so it doesn't quite land as strongly. Is there any panicked footage for this?
