Anime Music Video Finalist
SAVATAGE just released their latest album – POETS AND MADMEN – and one of their songs available for preview on their website was “Commissar”. This was a much heavier sound compared to previous albums or even their side project, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA. Chris Caffery’s rifts had me hooked and it was like reliving my head-banging days in high school. There is no drama, no story, and no ideological statement. This was just a really fast and heavy song that kicks your adrenaline into overdrive. Most of all, it’s new.
3x3 EYES: Legend of the Divine Demon was a surprising find. I really loved this 3-part OAV follow-up to the original storyline. The animation quality was much better, the characters were memorable, and the action was outstanding. I listened to the song while playing the DVD at 30x speed and it just fit beautifully with that machine gun rift. Surprisingly some of the scenes actually fit with the lyrics; which made this video even more fantastic to do.
This is really my first "action" video. “Dread” and “Digital” were more experimental and not quite as fast. Those incredibly tight cuts were a nightmare to time but the end result is really cool. Of all my videos, I keep watching this one the most because of the song and the anime.
