    Video content notes:
    -------------------

    1 - This song is ridiculous. I had no choice but to use it in a video!

    2 - The decision to use Escaflowne was due to Dilandau offering the most appropriate
    fitting footage to the lyrics... that and 2 years ago I was lip syncing Dilandau to
    Korn ... so it seemed like an obvious choice.

    3 - The lyrics are mostly jokes, such as the allen reference with "is lame" hahaha...
    or "to blame" over the burning fortress...

    4 - ... but along with the jokes I found that things actually fit pretty well with the
    story... even the jokes themselves fit with Dilandau... :P

    5 - The song was cut down due to well... many reasons... the novelty of the track and my
    idea would become stale with the full version. Also the lack of lip sync'able footage
    cut back the length (thankfully).

    6 - Lip sync was a blast. Fortunately I was working with ivtc footage so I didn't need
    to deinterlace and could move things around as necessary. (meaning zooming etc was not
    a problem)

    7 - I opted to enter this under character profile and fun... well... that's all arguable.

    Technical notes:
    ---------------

    1 - 24 fps -> 23.976 (what a pain!!!)

    2 - Post production Escaflowne footage is a nightmare... scene to scene the colors/brightness
    vary a ton... not to mention the rainbows :P (didn't see those during my mjpeg editing really).
    In case you are curious:

    Vdub Filters for post production:
    ----------
    Dinterlace area based: thresh 27, edge 40, blend (for removal of some interlace lines on lip sync)
    warp sharp 10
    2d cleaners normal, thr 5, area 5x5
    hue/sat/int hue 0, sat 1.5, inten 1.05
    smart smooth diam 11, str 300, inter no
    smart smooth diam 11, str 300, inter no
    smart smooth diam 11, str 300, inter no
    ----------
    (yes that is 3x the smart smooth to remove the rainbows to the extent seen in the downloadable
    copy)

    ... if I think of anything else I will add it ...

    Enjoy the Video! =)
