This is my first premiered video, and my first completly finished video in Adobe Premiere. The point of this video is like many other videos I'm sure, to show the emotional side of Naruto, but still include the aspect of fighting to show his feelings. I personally don't like the traditional "happy ending" type story. Animes like Cowboy Bebop, Grave of the Fireflies, or Saikano are more along my lines.
So when I look at Naruto, the part I enjoy most is his emotions about being alone and how no matter how hard he tries, Sakura never really pays him much attention. Accasionaly she well treat him as someone who is precious to her, but most of the time she concerns herself mostly with Sasuke. That is the core of this video, its Naruto trying to prove, both to himself and to Sakura, that he is or well become a great ninja or Hokage and those that help him upon that path.
The idea for this video popped into my head while watching my now favorite part of the show at the near end of episode ninety eight. After seeing it I wanted to do a video on it seeing as I was taking a break from another video I am doing. So I spent a little over two weeks working on it for several hours a day. My main problem was dealing with the footage, seeing as its impossible or near impossible to get the DVD footage for that scene and others. I'm not sure how far they have released on DVD in Japan, but I'm pretty sure they dont released the DVDs a week or two after its first released. Anyway I just wanted to have fun and I plan to buy much of the series when it finally gets picked up by a company.
Anyway, the quality is fairly good and no subtitles can be seen, except during the closing credits, but those subtitles were made by me so they still looked good. Seeing as its one of my first videos, I tried to stay to simple effects likes blends and fades and to try to stay away from the normal effect shows (mostly crappy) that new editors tend to do.
The file size is a lot larger then I had planned, and it would be smaller but Adobe was doing some weird stuff with the audio and virtual dub wouldn't open some of it, so the end product is larger then the 50 megabytes that it should be.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my video and I won't whine for opinions but if you have the time or felt I can improve somewhere, please drop one by.
