There's not much to say about how the idea for this video came about. I saw the trailer for "Art School Confidential" on TV at some point last year. At the time, I was watching "Honey and Clover," so that anime was on my mind. Putting the anime to the trailer seemed like a perfect match. What sold me on making it was casting Hagu as "the beautiful beatnik art chick." It just was too good to be true!
After months of not really doing not much at all in terms of video editing, I finally decided to sit down and start researching scenes for the trailer. I waited until I had a new computer at my disposal before tackling the editing. I spent a few hours over the course of 1 month working on the video. The video was made using Adobe Premiere 6.5, Adobe After Effects 6.5, and Photoshop CS (mostly for covering up lip-flaps, the title, etc.)
The cast is admittedly pretty random with the exception of about 4 characters:
- Shuuji = The Teacher
- Takemoto = The Virgin
- Ayu = The Nympho Slut
- Hagu = Beatnik Art Chick
("Peter Lucas" = The Director of "Bad Santa" :P)
Characters such as Morita and Mayama are kinda used randomly to fill in the various roles of other students that fill in the rest of the trailer. It was a lot of fun matching the characters to the main cast, though!
I really wanted to get my jollies out and edit a new video. Making this trailer was a nice way to make something new, play with my new computer, and just have fun. I hope you enjoy this silly little video!
