The concept seemed pretty obvious - combine military and Nazi footage from "Full Metal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa" with the classic song, "Springtime for Hitler", from Mel Brooks' "The Producers." The objective was to recreate as best as possible the musical number from the original 1968 film.
Unfortunately, because this AMV's screening history seems to be shrouded in people not understanding that it is a comedy, it would somehow seem necessary that I present the following disclaimer:
- This video is a PARODY, based on a song from an Academy-Award-winning film generally regarded as a classic, written and directed by legendary comedy director Mel Brooks (who is Jewish). No support or promotion of the Nazi Party or any of its activities at any point in its history is in any way implied by this video. -
Now that that's out of the way...
Editing took about a week in my spare time on my MacBook Pro running Final Cut Pro 5.
