Okay. I just typed this whole long thing about this video, then I hit continue and I got an authentication failed thing. Whatever. It was all lost. So I'll just make some quick crap up.
Lotta boxes checked up there - here's why. Comedy, Sandman fans may find the video slightly amusing, considering Dream is singing a DDR song, etc. Dance, it's DDR. Fun, it's DDR, and it's Dream and Death singing a song used in DDR. Horror, people are afraid of gothy people and black and white for some reason. Don't ask me why. Non-anime, Dream and Death are characters from Sandman. And other, I animated the damned thing myself.
Animation was done in Lightwave in the span of about four days, as I was on a deadline to finish the thing for the DDR Project, which was set to premiere that weekend. I had to learn endomorphs. Don't give me shit.
I know there are a lot of problems with the video, but I'm not going to fix them prior to upload, as this is how the video was shown at AWA. I like it. I'm happy with it. I did a black and white dance video with very little actual action other than lip-sync. I know some of it was off. I had been up for four days straight. I was exhausted. I did this video because I wanted to. It was fun to do and it nearly killed me. And I got to use trendwhore backgrounds.
I said a lot about the video the first time I wrote this. Now I'm not. It isn't perfect, but I'm happy with what I accomplished given the time and stress. I'm happy with it. If someone else likes it as well, cool. I like Sandman. I like Dream and I love Death. Great characters. I got to animate them, even if Dream looks like he has whiplash and Death's movements are a bit stilted. Whatever. Character animation in four days. I'm HAPPY.
