  • Comments: Yet another chance to let my inferiorty shine. After a 3-video break from drama, I've decided to take a crack at the old bunny again. This time, using "One Piece" and my old sentimental favorite, Savatage.

    I haven't done drama in a VERY long time, though I have great memories of editing "What God Has Sent." And as usually happens with my I'm-Definitely-Doing-This! AMV ideas, this one struck completely out of the blue. I don't even remember what I was doing to inspire it. I just know that I somehow stumbled onto an unlikely combination, and was determined to make it work.

    "Alone You Breathe" is a difficult song to edit to, because it's so very LONG. 7:27 total, and very energetic. Half the challenge was keeping up the energy for that length of time, and encoding a version that wouldn't hog hard drives.

    "One Piece" itself is one of those animes that has potential for just about any type of video. But being primarily a comedy series with a very...unique...animation style, scene selection for a drama video is some pretty tough business.

    As a character profile, this video explores Zoro's past and his goal of World's Greatest Swordsman, and the people in it who have most affected him. As such, it contains major spoilers. View at your own risk.
