Best Drama - Yasumicon 2004
This is another one of my videos were the song just fit way too well and the video practically made itself. Okay, I spent like 60 hours on this so maybe I shouldn't say that. LOL. I wanted more lip synching, but there are only a few scenes in VODS with moving lips, so I was forced to work with those few scenes, regardless of how well they fit.
For the amount of time spent on this, it really isn't all that great. But everything's pretty much perfect, which is saying a lot. It means that I can watch this video without constantly saying, "Ack! I could have done that part so much better!" There are a few places it could have been better, but overall I made exactly what I set out to make, which is a great accomplishment, as probably any AMV creator (or artist of any kind) can tell you. Only major thing I wish I would have thought to do...make the audio louder. Though they were blaring the sound way way WAY too loud at Yasumicon, so it worked out fairly well. But you may need to turn up the sound a bit when viewing on your computer.
Oh yeah, and to everybody who was talking really loud while they were playing my video at Yasumicon, you suck. >_< How f*cking rude is that? Just cause it's not a comedy video, everyone loses interest because things which aren't comedy are apparently way too deep for them and start blabbing like idiots. Ass monkeys. /rant
Anyway...so let's see, approximately 60 hours making this, including encoding over and over trying to get the smallest file size with the best quality. I used Adobe Premiere 6.5, Adobe Photoshop 7, and Virtual Dub (for my final encode).
