I originally thought that Shin Hatsubai video #58 would require me to do some animation of my own, but that thankfully turned out not to be the case. Despite the restriction of working from 37 minutes of subbed footage, I turned this combo from a second-rung idea into an eminently competitive video. Effects here include one horizontal flip and both framerate acceleration and deceleration.
About the music: "Highway To Hell" was ofcourse first written and performed by AC/DC, but the version used in this song was recorded by Iced Earth for the Tribute To The Gods bonus CD included in the Dark Genesis boxed set released in 2002. The CD is scheduled to come out on its own in 2003.
Shin Hats Self Grade: A-/B+. Even though the opening and closing sequences of this video are among the coolest that I've ever cut together, most of this one suffers from the same problems as does #37, which has much of the same pacing and many of the same themes.
