    What can I really say about this video?

    I'd really wanted to make a completely ridiculous AMV for a while, and when I heard that Puni Puni Poemi was being released in the US, I knew that it was time. I spent a really long time searching for a song that would capture the mood of this anime correctly, and after a few days of searching, my fiancÚ brought Superfreak to my attention. After hearing the 1st sentence of the song I was convinced. This was going to be the most ridiculous video that I could imagine making.

    After I got into selecting clips I realized 2 extremely large obstacles.
    1) PPP is only about an hour long (with credits).
    2) About 40% of the scenes were unusable if I ever wanted to submit this to a con due to their ecchi-ness :P

    Luckily despite those two factors there was still a lot of good footage, but I decided that I was going to have to be a lot more creative if I wanted to have enough footage for this thing.

    My original concept was for the majority of the video to be an all out lyrics syncing fest. For the most part I pulled that off, but there were a few parts that there just wasn't anything available to use. That is when I decided it was time for me to learn the art of rotoscoping. I not knowing a thing about Photoshop made rotoscoping in a few characters a daunting task to say the least, but after ALOT of messing around I finally got a fairly acceptable result. Pretty happy overall with the way those scenes turned out.

    I also became determined to get my lip syncing as accurate as I could when it was present. There were a lot of parts in this video where the opposite was also true, (i.e. there was characters talking that wouldn't have made sense if they had been talking) and I did my best to superimpose little closed mouths over them to keep them quiet. ^_^

    But anyway, there are a lot of just ridiculous scenes, and if you're not into campy tongue in cheek humor, then this is probably isn't going to be one of your favorites :P. I personally think it's hilarious, but I don't really expect too many other people to appreciate the type of humor I used in it.

    As for software I used:

    Adobe Premiere 6.0
    Adobe Photoshop 7
    MSPaint
    AVISynth 2.5
    DVD2AVI
    VirtualDub
    And a few other common plugins, etc.

    In total this video was made using 364 different pieces of source material, and contains around 700 or so individual cuts.

    The song itself was edited down for time. (Again due to lack of useable clips) Hard core Rick James fans might notice missing parts, but I doubt anyone else will.

    I spent about 120 hours into making this video over the course of a SOLID month.

    Lyrics:

    She's a very kinky girl
    The kind you don't take home to mother
    She will never let your spirits down
    Once you get her off the street, ow girl

    She likes the boys in the band
    She says that I'm her all-time favorite
    When I make my move to her room it's the right time
    She's never hard to please

    {Refrain}
    That girl is pretty wild now
    The girl's a super freak
    The kind of girl you read about
    In new-wave magazine
    That girl is pretty kinky
    The girl's a super freak
    I really love to taste her
    Every time we meet
    She's all right, she's all right
    That girl's all right with me, yeah
    She's a super freak, super freak
    She's super-freaky, yow

    Super freak, super freak

    She's a very special girl
    The kind of girl you want to know
    >From her head down to her toenails
    Down to her feet, yeah
    And she'll wait for me at backstage with her girlfriends
    In a limousine
    Going back in Chinatown

    Three's not a crowd to her, she says
    "Room 714, I'll be waiting"
    When I get there she's got incense, wine and candles
    It's such a freaky scene

    {Refrain}

    {Bridge}

    Temptations sing!
    Ohhhhh
    Super freak, super freak
    That girl's a super freak
