SH108 took a while to complete, mostly because I wasn't working on it for large stretches of time. I blew several deadlines, but considering the finished product, this is no real huge loss.
The fundamental concept of this video is a stupid idea that was chiefly a personal challenge, and should not be attempted again by anyone sane. The objective was to match the original video shot-for-shot to the greatest degree possible, and despite several shots that I just couldn't recomposite out of the handful of source that I cut (strong limitations here), I succeeded to about 85%. I'll count this one as a success for the concept and move on; cutting to someone else's direction and observing their shot boundaries is whole oceans of Not Fun and is not something I'm going to be doing again in the future.
Effects are deep and wide as I attempt to rebuild shots that Alf Ator's twisted brain came up with out of moderately animated Japanese TV cartoon materials. There's a bunch of repeated stuff, but most of this mirrors similar repetitions in staging in the original video.
Shin Hats self-grade: C. It passes, but barely.
stats: # clips: 250. avg length: 0.99 seconds per cut. total time: 16.5 hours.
about the music: Knorkator is a band from Germany. They are mental, and strive continually to be the most mental band in Germany. This is quite difficult when you consider that Dschingis Khan, die Fantastischen Vier, and Erkan & Stefan are also from Germany, but Knorkator has them pretty well beat all to pieces.
