  • Comments: My 11th Video. Seriously, this makes my other work look like crap. I am really proud of the progress I have made with this. I worked on it for a month, with 2 weeks for dvd ripping, converting, & cutting into clips, then 2-4 hours a night for editing.

    On a side note, Bloodlust is only in the video for one cut. I wanted to change the anime to emphasize a dramatic change in tempo.

    The lip sync happened mostly by accident at first, but I ran with it. It's more implied than anything, but I liked assigning the voices to different characters, esp. Alucard. I learned different ways to get the timing better, like cutting out certain mouth movements you don't want.

    Digital effects were mostly darking & blurring, but at one point I really played with Alucard's head to make it match the previous clips, which were taken from a music video trailer on the 1st dvd.

    I used footage from almost every episode, and at least some scenes from each disk. If it took up my entire hard drive, it's got to be good! I introduced different characters as the video progressed.

    Technically speaking, I'm pretty happy with the way the different gunshots and helicopters synced up with the sounds. I ended up showcasing different sets of sounds as the video progressed, & that keeps it from being boring. The longest cut is the one with Walter at the very begining. It would have been even longer if I hadn't cut it for his lip sync. The cuts get shorter & shorter as the video progresses, til the long interlude scene. I like to way I tied in different scenes with their counterparts in the trailer video. For example, the shot of Alucard in the begining, then the one later with the moon in the background. I noticed a few of the shots are similar, esp. the one of the anonymous guy in the video, but I assure you I used no shot twice, save for lip sync purposes.

    Another note on the video part: I thougght the lyrics went: In the video, In the video, you're the victim, NOT Inhale, Inhale, you're the victim. I chose to interpret it the original way, so I only used to 2nd lyric only at the very end.

    I used the freak vampire becuz his body was affected by the freak chip, hence somatic.

    Just so you know, the lyrics go:
    Breathe with me.

    Breathe the pressure
    Come play my game Ill test ya
    Psychosomatic addict insane
    Breathe the pressure
    Come play my game Ill test ya
    Psycho-somatic addict insane

    *Come play my game
    Inhale, inhale, youre the victim
    *Come play my game
    Exhale, exhale, exhale
    x2

    Come breathe with me
    Breathe with me

    Breathe the pressure
    Come play my game Ill test ya
    Psychosomatic addict insane
    Breathe the pressure
    Come play my game Ill test ya
    Psycho-somatic addict insane

    *Come play my game
    Inhale, inhale, youre the victim
    *Come play my game
    Exhale, exhale, exhale

    Come breathe with me
    Breathe with me


    PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!!!!
    I especially want to hear feedback from people whose videos I have reviewed. There are about 500 of you out there. Many with multiple reviews. Brain-Carnival, this means you ;D
