Something quick and dirty that was short enough to not give me any problems when putting it together. In other words, it took a long time to plan but was made fairly quickly.
I had thought of using the song before, but I just couldn't decide on how to end it. Happy? Sad? Creepy? Violent? No ideas came to me. So I settled on coming up with a name first. something to reflect the parts of Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni that weren't creepy or violent. And then, through a process of word association, I eventually arrived at Salad Days. And it clicked.
To all those who made the association because of the little image added at the beginning, good for you. For those who didn't, Salad Days is a sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus that mocks an American film maker (Sam Peckinpah) for gratuitous violence in his movies. Look it up on YouTube if you're curious.
On a positive note, I used some footage I got from a DVD I purchased from a stall at Anime Iowa (you know, the one where my other AMV took second place in Viewer's Choice). I bought two, but only one of them let me rip the footage. Oh well, I thought it came out looking okay as far as visual quality is concerned.
Questions, comments, and criticism are accepted. And hopefully my next movie will be more silly than this.
