Part of a project I did where I tried to make only Fullmetal Alchemist videos for one year. This was a fun video I designed around a constant upbeat and action heavy video that is along the lines of typical fast rock videos. It's not effects heavy because I don't care for making videos like that but I fel the editing works well.
There is no story, the video is just a matter of being an uplifting video that is along the lines of shounen high spirit videos. It's my first shot at making one of these but I think it turned out pretty well.
The other intent of this video was to make what is more or less an "Alternate Opening Sequence" to FMA. I love the opening animations and songs to FMA and I thought this song fit the energy and tone of the likes of Ready Steady Go and Tooku (sorry forgot the song name) so I kept in mind the flow of those openigns when making this.
As a result you'll notice A LOT of the footage is from the openings and endings, this is for two reasons. 1. As in a typical series the animation for these is higher so the animation is nicer and more fluid. 2. The shots synch a lot better to the style of music than the slower pace of the rest of the animation with exceptions here and there.
