Since all the quick comments I have received have a common response, I thought I should state this up front:
This video does NOT contain any SPECIAL EFFECTS, MASKS, or ADVANCE-EDITING MOVES that are remotely cool. Believe me, if I knew how to create those effects I would have them in the video. This is the best I could do with what I have learned so far. My hope is that you enjoy and judge it for what it is.
So, I'm sitting in my car and ELO's Fire on High plays on the radio. Suddenly, I think of Kiki's Delivery Service - why I dunno. I get home and que-up the editor and make a rough first past just to "see" if this combo really worked. My friend stops by, takes one look and says, "No way". Well, that's all the encouragement I needed.
That in a nut shell is how this AMV was born. I really enjoyed making this AMV and I was able to learn some Photoshop editing techniques. Originally, I did not have the Haruhi part in it but since the beginning was a bit long and slow I decided to add something interesting. Had someone video-taped me learning how to layer in Photoshop you could have played it on comedy central.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video. The effects are minimal to none (aside from the Haruhi layer) as the typical selections felt cheesy and I'm still trying to learn the advance stuff.
Cheers to all the little witches out there!
