After making a music video using a "hard and trendy" song (see my "Traces of Insanity" music video), I decided to uh..."purify" myself by using a type song that's not usually the norm for DBZ videos. So, I used the up-beat, super fun classical song, the Can Can! I hope I'm doing something unique, since I usually don't see DBZ videos that use instrumental songs, let alone classical songs.
Also, since my last video was a serious, non-action, character profile, I chose to make the theme something the complete opposite of that: an action/fighting video! I haven't made a straight up "fight fight fight" DBZ video in a loooong time, so I figured, "hey, it's the summer, may as well go for it."
The video revolves around my favorite fight in all of DBZ, Piccolo vs. #17. I tried to make the timing solid, and consistent (such as, a certain amount of cuts of Piccolo, followed by the same number of cuts for #17). The "intro" of the video is pretty long...the fighting doesn't actually start until quite a-ways into the video. But, I think that's a good thing...it allows for some slight comedy, and dramatic buildup (ok, I'm just bs-ing now, but aren't I doing a good job of it?)
In any case, here is my silly DBZ action video of the moment. I hope it's different from the usual stuff out there....^_^;; I'm pleased with the result. It looks nifty (cropped out all the VHS lines!), but, since it is a classical song, the audio is not as good as it can be. Oh well...I did amplify it, and that's about the best I could do.
I'd love it if you could write me your opinion after downloading this. Enjoy! :)
