Warning: This video contains some swearing and abusive concepts
which are implied lyrically. :P
Important Note: Some of the humor in this video requires that you
know most of the Big O series. (kind of...) I chose to not label
the video as a spoiler, but if you haven't seen the show at all
you may wonder about some of the references... (no real spoilers...)
This is my sit-back-and-relax Big O video. The song was initially
kind of tough to work with until I realized how easily I could
abuse the lyrics and tell a basic Big O "story." As people who
have seen the show will notice... this video plays out like an
average Big O episode.
(New Note!) The rough cut from the piano to the boyz song is
intentional, as Roger barged into the room when Dorothy woke him
up with the piano. I thought I had sync'd it so it would seem that the
last beat of the piano was the first beat of the boyz song... let
me know what you think. (maybe I am just nutz!)
Video content notes:
1 - The lyric-scene sync is fairly close, minus a few choices in
taking the general idea of the line(s) being said to imply a
given scene or emotion.
2 - I really wanted to make the mini episode complete, so if you
have complaints about the intro/outro... remember I did want them
to be there!
3 - The special cameo was taken from the only DVD source with the
given character on it... (maybe not??) This does not perfectly
sync with the lyrics... but enough to get the point across! :)
4 - ...maybe this really was meant to be a rap video...
5 - The quick NHMK intro has "Gunpowder Tea" as the background
music. (From Trigun 2nd Donuts)
6 - This video turned out even better than I had hoped, even
without 100% lyric matching. (which I never expected)
7 - Of the parts that don't sync the only one that I had someone
complain about before I completed it, was the line "...said something
to make me mad, something that you couldn't..." where the car is
getting trashed. (I felt this fit and led into the next part of the
1 - No lip sync! Big O uses primarily flash mouth for speech... so
I chose to convey thoughts through people's faces etc...
2 - I chose to use a bit of black&white in this video to add to the
"classic" style of the whole Big O experience...
... if I think of anything else I will add it ...
Enjoy the Video! :)
