My track for Video Game Project 4 (Track 40). I sacrificed a lot of time which should have been put to school work for this, but I'm pleased with the result :P
I didn't want to have to make something originally, but I always wished that Star Tropics would get some representation in the VGP series. So eventually I came to the realization that it wasn't going to get done unless I did it myself. Unfortunately the only way it was going to work was to combine several animes, since no single anime fit the bill. There were also very few Star Tropics remixes out there, and this was the best one. I was looking for something with a lot more energy, but this one was good enough (and with the work needed for this song, I can only imagine how much harder a more upbeat/faster-paced song would have been to accomplush).
Some of the sources I used very little from. Such as Welcome to the NHK, I only used for the lighter. I only took one frame from Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu and that was the trees in front of Hale's house which I used to have Excel hide behind when she was running from the snake
Special Thnaks to Moonlight Soldier (MEWN! o/) for the footage of Gan-chan (Ah! My Mini-Goddess) and to Fall_Child42 for the footage of Bumpety Boo - which he was planning to use first but I snuck ahead and did so before he had the chance. It's an old Kids show on a VHS he had me digitize for him, and I saw the octopuses while checking the encodes I made for him and now I'm the first to use it as a source in an AMV o/. That's ok, he can still be the first to use it as the SOLE source in an AMV (Coming Soon).
Also thanks to Castor Troy for all the extensions I got on this that allowed me to complete it in just the way I wanted. I started on this thing 2 months before the deadline and I still needed extentions :
