==Opinions are Greatly Appreciated :) ==
==MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!==
There are some major plot spoilers in this video. If you have not seen the entire anime and do not like spoilers, I warn you that there are some Ultimate spoilers here
First off I cannot say that this is an original idea. I have always wanted to do a video to Everlast's What It's Like and I've always wanted to do a Trigun video, but never put two and two together. Then one day I came across Draco's video: Trigun - What It's Like video. Immediately when I saw the title I knew that it had a TON of potential. I downloaded it and loved how the words fit with the video. I wished I came up with the idea myself and wondered why I never thought of it.
About a year later, I decided to conjure up my own version of this. Using Draco's video as a reference point, I started to make the video. I almost stopped making this video by the end of The Man at the Liquor Store section. I had no motivation or reason to keep going. But after a month of it sitting there, I began to pick away at Mary's section. The farter I got into her section, the more intrigued and interested I got into the video. I started to work on it again for a few hours a day until I finished it.
I tried very hard not to use the same shots that Draco did. I did not want to copy him. Even though this idea was originally Draco's I wanted to make the video the way I would.
This is the first time I seriously tried lip synching. I remember deciding never to try it again after my failure at it in my Love Hina video. But I think I did a decent job in this one. There were three sections where lip synching was required, but I didn't really doctor anything up in the second one. It fit well enough for me.
**LIP SYNC ISSUES ADDRESSED**
I have gotten quite a few opinions where it says the Lip Sync could have been better. Though being the creator, trying not to sound arrogant, think to myself how in the hell I could make the lip sync better when it seems damn near perfect to me. Then I received an opinion that laid it out clear as to what was happening. To make things short, there are ONLY THREE PLACES in the video where there is lip sync:
1: "Get a job you ****ing slob"
2: "Don't worry about a thing baby doll; I'm the man you've been dreaming of"
3: "God damn if I find that man I'm cutting off his balls"
There are other sections where lips move while whitey is singing. These were intentional as well, but they are not lip sync:
1. He asked a man for what he could spare with shame in his eyes
(there were no shots of him holding his hands out in a begging position...or anything that I found good enough. So I had him talking to a guy begging for alcohol)
2. And heard an honest man lie
How else should I depict a man lying? He's talking. In the real story, for those of you who haven't seen trigun, the person here was punished for something he did not do. At this point, he was yelling "I didn't do it!" But of course no one believed him.
Hopefully that put to rest the lip sync issues before they start.
There really aren't any special notes for this video. Just that this video's concept is not orginally mine.
