I create this video as a birthday present for a good editing buddy of mine. Since I didn't realize it was her birthday until last minute, I only took about a day or two to work on this.
It doesn't necessarily have a solid plot, other than the fact that I wanted to focus on Nono and Lal'C. I just wanted the video to seem hectic and chaotic, like a sort of emergency, and then calm down to something more simple and soothing.
Footage - [ Diebuster (Gunbuster 2) ]
Out of the anime that my friend liked best, this one seemed to fit to a trance song best. Not to mention that I had also recently purchased this series and was eager to edit with it.
Song - [ Sub Focus - "Follow the Light" ]
Since my friend loves trance and techno music, and Subfocus happens to be one of her favorite artists, this was a no-brainer. I chose this specific song merely because I personally liked it and it seemed like a nice and soothing song to edit to.
Editing Process -
As I mentioned, I didn't work on this for a very long time so I went with a very copy and paste sort of style. I wanted to make it visually appealing to fit the beauty of the song, so I used a lot of overlay and coloring effects. The first half of the video has a lot of visual graphics because I wanted to capture all the chaos of the beats in the song, while the second half makes use of some motion overlays and coloring effects.
