- Simple Plan Grow Up
This is a video I've been working on for quite some time.I edited on and off with it. I originally started this idea a year or so ago, but I lost the project file and decided to completely re-start it.
The idea for this AMV came to me when I was watching some video using the song in this AMV. When I heard of it, It reminded me of Konata since I had recently just finished Lucky Sar at that time. I searched to see if anybody made a Lucky Star AMV using the song, and I was surprised to find nothing of it. So I got motivated to make a nice video just for this perfect combination.
The focus of this AMV is on Konata. The point of it is to be about the lifestyle she lives as an otaku, hence the title. That's about it for the story line :l
Footage - [ Lucky Star ]
As mentioned before, the song reminded me of Konata so that is why I ended up using Lucky Star. It's as simple as that.
Song - [ Simple Plan - "Grow Up" ]
I found this song by chance while I was browsing for AMV. I had heard it previous to making the AMV, but I wasn't an editor at the time.
Editing Process -
This AMV took me about 14 hours or so in total. I was working on it on and off for quite some time. Since this AMV originally came about when I was beginning as an editor, I wanted to keep a similar idea. I changed the effects quite a bit, but the simplicity of those effects stayed. As usually, a lot of beat synching was involved. I've also got some lip synching in there, and I made it evident by masking and adding shadow to Konata when she is singing. Finally, I was able to find a better way of encoding so the file size is a lot better than previous videos.
