- Our Lady Peace Somewhere Out There
Back in the summer of 2004, Iíd just finished watching Earth Girl Arjuna, and really loved the series (moral high ground and all). At the end of summer, my friendís father (who runs an editing company) asked me if Iíd like to intern for him, and possibly start working when they needed an extra pair of hands.
So, set up with a mac (ew) and Final Cut Pro (which Iíd never used) I set out to make a video. Needing something easy to rip from, I chose Arjuna. And after listening to Somewhere Out There by Our Lady Peace, I knew I finally had a song that worked for Arjuna, and an OLP song that would make a solid video (something Iíve wanted to do for a while).
My biggest setback was learning FCP, but after getting a hang of the system, I plugged away at the video and finished in a week.
Surprisingly, I found very few EGA videos on the org (at the time), and most of them were pretty dull (Fansub rips, little timing) so I was dead set on uploading the video as soon as possibleÖ..except that I forgot.
^^ So here it is. Iím really happy with how this turned out. Itís a solid video and the first single-source pieces Iím happy with. It focuses on Arjunaís journey, and her relationship with Tokiyo.
There is one moment of Ďsubtitleí. These were hardcoded into the video themselves, and I didnít want to matte over them, because I like their context with the video. Some people will find them distracting, but I like Ďem, and I figure thatís the important part.
Hope you enjoy! I do appreciate feedback! Opinions get replies!
Encoded with DivX, 2000 kpbs. Let me know if youíre having problems with it! (not that you should, but Iíve had problems beforeÖ.)
