- Premiered: 2009-06-05
- Chicago Saturday In The Park
This was made for Colossalcon 2009's AMV Wars Qualifier. This happened to be my first time making an IC video.
For the qualifier, I was emailed a song to make a video to (Chicago's "Saturday In The Park") and given one week to make it using whatever anime I felt like using. Since I've never done an IC video before, I decided to restrict myself to only editing for 2 hours to get practice for the actual competition.
After getting the email and listening to the song, I decided to go for more of a literal lyric sync approach and chose 2x2 = Shinobuden as my source. I'm a little surprised at how it came out, considering this was a song I would've never thought to edit to. Anyhow, I wound up being picked as one of the two competitors for this year's AMV Wars.
On a sidenote, with the literal lyric sync, I realize the footage for the "ice cream" scene isn't ice cream; but it's all I could come up with in that time frame to fit there.
