This is a frankly strange video in both design and execution, but that can be said of many SH AMVs besides #72. However, #72 is the only one to be done entirely in purple. I've done grayscale (2, #23 and #45) and sepiatoned (#60) videos before, but this is the first in some color pattern that some kind of film won't do naturally.
This video was made with only the first two episodes of Piano, purely by accident; I was not aware until starting the editing process that my encodes of 3 and 4 were corrupted. Digital effects here include an obvious use of Donald Graft's VDub colorize filter, a few decelerations, some motion blur to cover up a few of said decelerations, and one use of AviSynth layering.
Shin Hats Self Grade: B-. It's.....a soft, passive, instrumental video filmed in dark purple. Nothing especially great or bad about it.
