Hot damn, what a video. I started this vid almost immediately after I heard the song, about a week after, had to finish the previous video. The song was ruffly about Vietnam, and the scenes described reminded me of Spriggan. This is the first video where I actually used a rather large amount of effects, mostly just invert and radial blurs. At first it was hard to find enough action scenes just for the chorus...mainly since most of the scenes when with the rest of the song, which calls for alot, so I pulled every spar scene that might hold any fast, well done, animated movements that can catch attention to the viewers eye as I could.
This wasn't supposed to be made, I had planned another video before this for Csun, but the song came along and changed my mind, even though I didn't make it to the finals for Csun, I at least am happy to have finally entered a con and tried, and it won't be my last. I'll try to enter in as many cons as I can, even though I prolly wont be able to be at many of them, which would be alot better if I could go.
I named this video Action Surplus for a reason. I pretty much filled it with nonstop action, which ended up with the correct desired effect from me at least.
So enjoy, and by all means...leave an opinion.
