- Andy Hunter Lifelignt (Sugar Jesus Remix)
Do you remember Galaxy Bounce from 2006? It was good, it got some awards but I always thought it could be improved. Well here is Galaxy Bounce 2012, remake of the 6 years old AMV with improved editing, special effects, 720p, 60fps and an exclusive remix of the original song Lifelight by Andy Hunter.
I got the idea of doing this remake 2 years ago when I was chatting with Overdrive (who already helped me with video encoding). I was telling him that I was looking for a bluray version of Pale Cocoon (which doesn't exist) and he proposed to upscale the DVD version and filter it to improve quality. The result was really impressive, just what I needed for a HD remake.
The improved video quality was nice but I figured that a simple remake with the same song wouldn't make a good impact. I needed something to freshen the AMV, like a new version of the song, remix maybe. Since I recently worked with Andrei Basirov from Sugar Jesus for my Binary Overdrive AMV and I knew that he was very good at remixing songs, I thought I'd ask him if he would be interested in taking part in this project. It was last year, just after we released Binary Overdrive. He immediately accepted and explained to me that he needed the vocal track of Andy Hunter's song as well as some other elements like SFX and chorus tracks in order to start working on the remix.
Contacting Andy took some time but I managed to get to him and tell him about the project. He already saw the first Galaxy Bounce AMV few years ago and loved it. He agreed to help and sent me the audio tracks that Andrei needed. It took a while for Andrei to come up with the first version of the remix as he's been very busy with his job but it was worth waiting. This first version was already high quality but Andrei is a perfectionist and he kept getting back to me with improved versions each time I gave him feedback.
