- Title: 7th French Iron Chef - Sky's The Limit
- Premiered: 2004-08-14
- Bomfunk Mc's Sky's the limit
Once upon a time, LCY came in the animemusikvideos.de IRC channel and shamelessy pimped his video he had done for the 6th French Iron Chef comptetition - Supermoves. I was simply amazed, that he has done all that in 24 hours. He offered me to compete in the next round and so I did :)
The French Iron Chef principal is to complete a video within 24 hours, including exporting, compressing and uploading. We got the song 5 minutes before start which was 8 pm, I just hoped I can edit with it. I got pretty lucky as the song is dance & upbeat and if you know my videos this is the stuff I usually do, so getting into it and thinking over effects & scenes I could synch with the music was pretty easy. I chose Earth Girl Arjuna because I had it still prepared for editing after my Connichi video (which has yet to be premiered) and because it has some beautiful animation for any kind of AMV :)
I edited to the best I could do without getting sloppy, I knew what amazing stuff these french guys popped out sometimes after 24 hours and I just wanted to compete with them >:)
So I edited about 13 hours in total: From 8 pm to 3 am, then sleep until 10 am, breakfast and some catchup with life until 12 pm, editing till 6 pm and then 2 hours for exporting, comrpessing and uploading. It was fun =)
I'm quite statisfied with the result, it is actually not far away from the effort I put into a "normal" video ;)
Oh yeah, don't watch this if you're affected by flashiness... Seizure warning...
Other participants were: olw, Maverick7013, DussyDelf, Beppe, Wunjo, Dark-krystal and Rikku
Check out their videos, pretty cool stuff as well.
Programs used: Adobe Premiere 6.0 for all of the editing.
If you leave an opinion, please consider the 24 h limitation we all had :)
