  • Comments: Back in the summer of 2004, I’d just finished watching Earth Girl Arjuna, and really loved the series (moral high ground and all). At the end of summer, my friend’s father (who runs an editing company) asked me if I’d 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 I’d 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 I’ve 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 possible…..except that I forgot.

    ^^ So here it is. I’m really happy with how this turned out. It’s a solid video and the first single-source pieces I’m happy with. It focuses on Arjuna’s journey, and her relationship with Tokiyo.

    There is one moment of ‘subtitle’. These were hardcoded into the video themselves, and I didn’t want to matte over them, because I like their context with the video. Some people will find them distracting, but I like ‘em, and I figure that’s the important part.

    Hope you enjoy! I do appreciate feedback! Opinions get replies!

    Encoded with DivX, 2000 kpbs. Let me know if you’re having problems with it! (not that you should, but I’ve had problems before….)
