The 39th Track of the 3rd DDR Project that premiered at Anime Weekend Atlanta 9.
When I first heard this song when they started distrubuting the tracks I got an idea for a completely CG video. Being an animation major I really wanted to create it. Unfortunately bad things happened, my computer was out of commission for over a month and I ended up not having the time to create the fully CG video I had been thinking about and planning for almost a year.
One of the hardest things about this video was trying to forget that concept I have had since I heard the song. It took about a week or two before I decided on what to do, which still included some CG animation.
It was very long process, creating the characters and eventually animating them. I'd like to give credit to my friend Feena for helping me model and rig the characters. I don't know if I would have even been able to finish with out her help. This was my first experience in modeling and rigging a character for animation. (Rigging a character is basically giving it a skeleton, so you have joints to move and animate with.)
The concept ended up focusing around the girl after reluctant boy genre. Your basic Tenchi-esc concept.
I'd also like to thank Patrick Bohnet and Hsien Lee for giving me all the extra time to finish the video. I was uploading it just a few days before it was to premiere.
There's more that I probably have to say, but it's late and I can't think of what it was. More to come I'm sure. Just go and see for yourself. Enjoy!
