WINNER OF BEST OF SHOW AT KUMORICON- "Who Needs A King?

JUDGES CHOICE, BEST COMEDY, AND BEST OF SHOW AT KUMORICON 08


I'm going to Special Hell for this one...

I had this idea pop in my head after a friend gave me a whole bunch of music, and I discovered one of the albums he gave me was "The Lion King" Soundtrack. I thought..."hmm... I should make an AMV to a Disney song, that would be fun." So I came across "Be Prepared" and I thought: "Death Note! Scar wants to be king and Light wants to be God....Scar wants to kill Mufasa, Light wants to kill L...Brilliant!"

I decided to make the Shinigami and Misa the hyenas. I originally wanted Rem to be Whoopi Goldberg's character, but I couldn't find any footage of Rem being goofy or ditzy, so I settled on Misa. This video is a blast and my best accomplishment yet. Enjoy!

Cast:
Scar- Light/Kira
Shenzi- Misa
Banzai- Ryuk
Ed- Rem
Mufasa- L
Simba- Watari
Hyena Chorus- Random Shinigami

I'll be honest. I'd probably have to say that this is one of my favorite Death Note AMV's out there (Purge's Silent INtentions taking the #1 spot).

Let me list this video's beauties.

*Gorgeous Video Quality
*Good Editing
*Beautiful Work of Parody
*Some of the Best Lip Sync I've Seen Ever
*Some of the best masking I've ever seen
*Good Atmosphere
*Makes references to the basic Death Note plot, while making it unique
*Nightmarish Comedy

If I had any critiuqe, it would have to be that a few scenes (Like at 1:18) lasted a tad too long.

It's just plain good people! A definite must-get on my highest of reccomendations.

Excellent Job. A nice escape from all the Emo Death Note Vids I have seen recently. I wish I could have been there though. Would have loved to tell you that personally.

O_o While I completely agree with your overall points and sentiments, I'm somewhat confused about point #1. The vast amount of macro blocking I saw literally broke me out of it for a second. At best I'd have to say Raws with little to no filtering.

Still didn't stop me from loving it though, 5/5.

Mmmm I downloaded this yesterday? Yea...yesterday..Ok so...I found it interesting hehehe but I liked the video in sudden burst (certain sections). I felt like some scenes lasted a tad too long and at a times the characters expression didn't fit the tone of voice. 1:44 - 2-38 and the ending were :up: Over all I enjoyed lol GJ

Loved it. Beat all them other kumoricon vids out of the water. :up:

Waaaaaaaaay better than your Excel video.

This showed you really listened to our complaints and made sure not to repeat the same mistakes. That puts you way ahead in my book.

Dude, this was awesome. It fit Death Note so well and you made me miss the anime again T_T.

What scene was that when Light was screaming at a grave stone, I've never seen that before. Did they add DVD extras or something?

That was from the "Death Note Special: Director's Cut" It basically does the first 25 episodes in 2 hours. With a special ending, Light is basically yelling at L's grave : "I've won! What now??!!"

I liked it! thought some of the technical aspects could have flowed better ie how about adding in a little bit of facial expressions?? but otherwise excellent waste of time. definite crowd pleaser.
