Well before the premiere of my first video (Chop Suey), I was feeling the urge to start another video. THe biggest problem that I seemed to be running into was finding high quality copies of animes that havn't been released in the US yet. I ave had a few ides for Infinite Ryvious, FLCL, and Kare Kano, but nothing I wanted to start until I can get the DVDs. FLCL (as of current) only has 2 epsiodes out. luckily I had the first volume of kare kano which had six. It didn't have the footage that I wanted to start my "beuautiful" video (I hope to get this off the ground in december, with the release of volume 2), but I really liked the series alot.
So I sat there on the metro istening to a mix tape I had made myself to help pass the long commute. Either Way by Guster was on it. I liked the song alot, and after listening closely to it a few times, realized that the guys who wrote it probably have major issues. I figured I wanted this video to be different from my last, so I opted to do Either Way to Kare Kano in an attempt to make a dramatic/romantic video. I don't want to contain myself to only action videos, I want to try it all. I thought a little farther ahead about this video than my last, and decided to try to make it convey a partial story and feeling, showing things from Arima's and Myawaza's views.
I realized at some point during my brainstorming process that Arima and Myawaza have issues, major issue. More issues than the Guster guys do. Fuck they have subscriptions. hence the title. Give me a break for it being a bad pun.
So I started, and I tried to resist my temptation to render the video every ten seconds so that I could get more done on it. I enjoy watching these videos as much as I do making them, wso why not try to make alot of the video before rendering the first time? that way you get to see alot of the video, and you can go back and clean up mistakes where you see them. I also found that this didn't make me bored of the first few scenes that I edited by the time I finished the video.
SO I was chillin, maing new video, sucking back diet coke, when my friend andrew asks me to go to nekocon. I said sure, sounds like fun. Hey I should submit this new video to it. So I go to the website to check the due date. 3 weeks. damn. Given people have put together amazing videos in shorter amounts of time, but I was pulling a full time job with a 1 1/2 commute eacjh way plus working weekends to make extra spending cash. So a few weeks and many many lost hours of sleep later I am rushing to burn the thing to a cd so I can get it postmarked in time.
Winner first place nekocon V!!
