- Frou Frou Psychobabble
I did this video in celebration of Halloween, but I only started it about a week before the holiday so it is a little rush. Although I made a few tweaks after I had already uploaded it to Youtube.
The story for this video isn't exactly clear, but it's meant to focus on Rena and Keiichi's relationship in the first arc. The lyrics are there to explain most of the meaning behind the story, as it switches from Keiichi's to Rena's perspective to fit the situation.
Footage - [ Higurashi no Naku Koro ni ]
Since this was meant for Halloween, I had to use creepy footage and the scariest anime I had at my disposal was Higurashi, which worked out perfectly. Plus, I've always wanted to do some sort of horror AMV with this footage.
Song - [ Frou Frou - "Psychobabble" ]
I was just randomly browsing through my songs for one that would work for some sort of horror themed video, and this was my best choice. Not to mention that I had also recently downloaded a Frou Frou album so I wanted to make use of the songs.
Editing Process -
I decided to use a moderate amount of effects, mainly with the use of a blood-stained overlay to fit that eerie feeling of the video. Aside from normal beats, the song also had an awkward sound that came up often, so I decided to use an effect that distorted the footage somewhat whenever the sound played. Finally, I added a moderate amount of lip syncing too, in order to indicated that the song was mostly from Rena's perspective. I feel like I could of improved it more, but it accomplished the task I had created it for.
