As soon as I heard this song, I knew there had to be an AMV.
I spent more time on this one than I have on any other, mainly because of the almost wall-to-wall lip synching, sometimes from two characters at once. To make Jet and Spike sing together, I used an enhanced version of the trick I used in "El Vashiachi;" I took a shot where, at one point or another, both their mouths move, cropped it and split it into two, then edited them both individually and matted them together side by side.
I wanted to have Vicious unsheath his sword in this video, but there's not a single shot in the series where you actually see him do that; there is, however, a shot of him *sheathing* the sword, and so I reversed that and sped it up.
For the shot where Spike sings while flying, with scrolling clouds in the background, I needed him to move his mouth one more time than he did, and if I edited normally, the clouds would jump around. So I cropped out a tiny box around his mouth, edited the right lip movements into that, and stuck it back on.
Have fun. You'll like it :)
