I have made another leap in my devotion to making music videos. I was greatly inspired by the wonderful AMV creators at DZX Productions. They turn out so many masterpieces, and I found myself aspiring to be more like them. To edit more intensely, with more complex methods. This is the product, and I am dedicating it to DZX Productions, and everyone on their message boards. ^_^ Zacloud luvs ya guys!
I was going to keep track of how many hours this took, but time became irrelevant after 63 hours. I still used Movie Maker as my primary editor, but did a large amount of editing in Adobe Premiere 6.0. I still don't have the hang of the darn thing, but at least it allowed me to stretch my imagination further than usual. I used tons of layers for intense parts of the music, used lots of beat-edits, and never moved on until I was quite satisfied with what I did (except a few cases where it just refused to do better. :P ).
The way it came about was unusual though: MTV was on, and I just happened to catch some of this new song and thought it sounded pretty cool. So I downloaded it immediately, then said, "I'll make a FF8 video to this! Wee!" So I got to work. Yup, definitely not how I normally do things. ^_^;;
Not everyone might care for the heavy song... Not everyone might care for an almost senseless video... But at least know that it's far from lazy when it comes to editing. And definitely, check out DZX's videos. You're guaranteed to be entertained and amazed. :)
Thanks for tolerating my board presence, fellas. This one's for all of you!
