  • Comments: Another bonus track from my DVD, this short piece was put together to illustrate a point.

    As many of you know, one of my primary inspirations for "Rhythm of the Heat" was the large number of trailers, particularly for Disney films, that use as their background music some rip-off of "Rhythm of the Heat". Well, Disney had the last laugh, as ten months after the music video premiered at Anime Expo 2000 (which, coincidentally, was held at the Disneyland hotel), Touchstone Piictures (a unit of Disney) began running 30-second promos for "Pearl Harbor" that actually used "Rhythm of the Heat" as its background music. Many friends even e-mailed me, congratulating me for making the promo they had seen for "Pearl Harbor".

    Here, I have juxtaposed clips from my video with one of the 30-second spots for "Pearl Harbor". Notice especially how the Disney promo also uses my method of individual flashes of the lead characters. In addition, in the ending, the editor of the promo took my editing one step further. Wheras I had one insert shot per beat, he finished it off with two shots per beat.

    As I say in the intro, coincidence? Decide for yourself.
