  • Comments: Note: This video dates from back when I first got my new software, and most if not all the technical problems that were in this video have been dealt with somehow. It was a learning experience. ^_^

    Believe it or not, this is a video using TaTu music that is not shoujo-ai in nature. I did this as part of a challenge for a trailer under 1 minute and personally tested myself to match the style of Noir's opening credits. This is the first video using this type of complicated video effects (mixed backgrounds fading in and out) and some echo effects in some scenes.

    The music came from the first 50 seconds of TaTu's "Perfect Enemy" on their Dangerous and Moving album. I didn't want to do a full video to the song but had a basic idea for the effects I wanted to do, which incuding slowing down certain action sequences (such as different ones using all three girls) and parts of the opening sequence to give it a very stylized feel. Basically all the clips used are eye-candy.

    Various notes that may be of interest:
    The logo appearing at the beginning was created using one grabbed off the official sight and inverted (the background was white originally) after several failed attempts to recreate the text and 15 minutes of trying to type French with the help of my father (who speaks French)
    The effect of Kirika's eyes layered with her drawing two pistols was created by inverting a mix effect on Alpha that managed to create the sepia tone I was looking for.

    Thank you, and enjoy the trailer!

    Note: Please do not comment with "it could have been longer". This video was designed as part of a challenge to have a trailer under a minute. Thank you.
