I would categorize this video as "dark humor." It uses the song from the end of Monty Python's Life of Brian. In the movie, all the people singing are nailed to crosses, and the lead singer is attempting to cheer up Brian, who has just recently been crucified. While you certainly don't need to have seen the movie to understand the video, you might miss an in-joke if you haven't.
I spent a ridiculous amount of time on this video- between two to three months, I believe. Of course, I wasn't working on the video every day, and I'm sure some of you spend much longer on your vids.
I also incorporated special effects to a much greater extent than in my earlier vids. Mainly picture-in-picture and motion effects- most of which I learned from this tutorial: http://www.adobe.com/motion/tips/totalpre1/main.html
I find his voice very relaxing. Thanks Brian! Keep on massaging those clips :).
For what it's worth, I tried not to waste a single moment in this one. Hopefully this is apparent in the final product.
