The story behind this video is very odd. I was flipping through the channels on TV one night and stumbled on Victorious on Nickelodeon. It was some random episode, but the song that they were singing was the same song I used in the video. I thought to myself, "This song, plus B Gata H Kei would make for an interesting mix". Especially if I make Koseda the brother to Takeshita, since through out the anime Yamada creeps her out with questions about sex. I thought that it would be even funnier if they focused around the prospect of her wanted to do Takeshita's brother.
This video really challenged me on a technical level. There was alot of masking invloved and alot of clever editing that was necessary in order to pull off the illusion that Koseda was in fact Takeshita's brother. Since it was only a twelve episode series I had to really find some key moments in it that would make it seem that the two were in fact related. Not only that I had to really find the scenes where Yamada was pursuing Koseda and manipulate them in a way that would make it seem like there were thoughts on her mind as well as formulate a story around it. Finally I needed to really make the video fluid enough to keep up with the pacing of the song while not just making it seem like I was only making it seem like it was a punchy sort of video. I think that I got what I wanted.
A big thanks goes out to my Beta testers (you know who you are). You were all a major help in my process especially Driftroot, CodeZTM and Warlike Swans.
I had a lot of fun with this video and I hope you enjoy it as well.
