- A Perfect Circle Counting Bodies Lke Sheep To The Rhythm Of The War Drums
Coordinator's Choice at Otakon 2006, and an Honorable Mention in the Comedy Category at AnimeNext 2006. I'd say it was a good year.
Special thanks goes out to Floyd Russell of Black Sun Productions for his original video which mine parodies. I figured either this video or Naruto's Technique Beat. I think I made the right choice. And thanks to everyone at Otakon for enjoying the video. I didn't go to AnimeNEXT, so I'm not sure about them.
Brief Effects and Easter Eggs notes:
00:07 - Penny Arcade frame. This piece is special since it marked the time when Mike Krahulik asked another artist for a reference shot to make this piece.
00:09 - Chiyo's Dad replaces Rei. Just a simple overlap effect, but fun nonetheless.
00:20 - 00:29 - These are actually the only scenes where I really used AfterEffects just to change the color schematics the way I wanted them.
00:47 - 00:50 - Nice overlapping effect with the windows. Thank you green screen and Photoshop!
00:54 - Bush's twisted heads from A Perfect Circle's original video of this song. If anyone remembers, the original video portrayed Bush pumping blood and turning people into sheep, leading them all into a meat grinder. Back in 2004. AND HE'S STILL F***in' PRESIDENT!
01:02 - 01:04 - Another nice overlapping. Took awhile to get each frame to fit together so well.
01:04 - 01:06 - I am teh l337 master! Join me and together we will rule this network as editor and other! Only more evil.
01:10 - 01:11 - I just can't pass this one up. Getting the reactions on these girls synched together just looks really good. Some great editing, I feel.
01:12 - 01:13 - Was it worth it?
01:15 - 01:18 - More great overlapping. I should point out that AfterEffects was only used for Chiyo here so that I could fit her in best in this scene. This one was a toughy, getting her to fit in a teenaged sized space, not to mention the pigtails.
01:30 - 01:40 - The words portion was fun just making up. I got a great smile placing Adam Corolla's picture into this scene. The AfterEffects scene satirized the recent overflow of unnecessary effects videos nowadays on the org. I know Floyd didn't even make his video with AfterEffects. Just getting my point out. hah hah.
01:48 - 01:54 - This scene I also liked making. The scenes correlate extremely well with each other, and it leaves you with a very valuable lesson.
01:58 - 02:01 - This was a bitch. I had to get into each square, triangle and obtuse shape with a green screen. Long long time, so you'd better appreciate it!
02:03 - Replaced Floyd's original T-Shirt with an image from VG Cats.
02:06 - 02:11 - Ever wondered who Shinji was talking to on the phone in the last video? Neither did I, but I synched this scene anyway.
02:12 - On the top, you'll see the Brass Monkey, one of my favorite bars in Baltimore. Downright, I found out what the voices were really coming from. And to the right, Kevin Caldwell still lives within us all.
02:14 - 02:15 - Trogdor's appearance. My own little backlash against a certain video at last year's con. Nothing personal.
02:16 - 02:17 - Osaka's little grammar problem with Elevator and Escalator.
02:18 - 02:22 - Sex education was never more fun...unless you've seen Bible Black.
02:37 - 02:39 - I just felt this scene needed to be done in grayscale. Helped to give each yawn a dreary, tired feeling.
02:48 - 02:51 - My favorite overlap. I think everyone agrees with me on this one.
03:11 - Those lazy Tokyo school days. What the hell's the guy on the left looking at?
Also a brief glimpse of the hungry tv set.
03:12 - Lastly, I had the word sleep translated to its appropriate Kanji (at least I hope it's right).
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. Feel free to send any suggestions.
