Video Title: The Will To Live
The Will to Live won third place for Serious/Sentimental in a Neko Studios Contest.
Note: My new studio will be: The Pavan Show , but I'm not going to change my user name just because of this.
I showed how much Kenshin wants to help people and stay alive for his loved ones. I used some effects, but I used them sparingly so that a purpose could be attatched to their where-abouts in the music video. Footage was taken from the following episodes of Rurouni Kenshin: 1,3,5,7,8,11,12,15,19,21,22,24,26,28,31,34,35,36,39,40,43,48,51,54,57,58,59,60,61
note: There maybe some episodes where I didn't use footage, but I was thinking about using the footage, and possibly I might be missing an episode here or there, but you get the picture.
I used virtual dub mod for some converting with the footage. This is my third anime music video and 6th actual music video (there were other music videos and amvs before that, but I just threw random clips together and put some music, thats not a music video, thats just shit). The other two anime music videos are trashed and can't be found anywhere, except on a back up cd somewhere (so I do have experience :) ).
It took awhile to make this, mostly because my cpu kept freezing on me with wmm2. I found out a good way of fixing this problem (near the end of the process of making this music video). Basically I worked on a part of the music video separately in a different project, and since I was working with a fraction of the entire music video, instead of the whole thing, my cpu did not freeze once.
I'm pretty satisfied with this video, even though I ignored all most all of the drum beats. I did an excellent job with the timing to the guitar and the words of the song. The character profile I did on Kenshin was not too bad. I could not get to much of the history kenshin went through, because I only used the tv series of the anime. I did not want to mix the tv series and the movies - totally different styles. I squeezed the little history that I could out of some flash backs kenshin and his master had during the tv series. I enjoyed making this music video, and I can say its my best work up to date.
