Debuted at Fanime 2005 in the 'General' category.
Submitted to Anime Expo but was apparently 1 video short of the finals.
Okay, this is basically the only Naruto video with absolutely NO action. Its my tribute to the whole Naruto/Hinata theme. The idea was originally to do a video from Hinata's point of view about trying to get someone you love to notice you, but after pondering the song selection for a while I went back to my CD collection and switched up the idea when I realized how perfect the song She Loves Me would fit the scenario from Naruto's side.
Most of the lips synching was actually done in MS Paint, pasting mouth movements from other frames to let the character move in synch while moving in the frame. I used photoshop for a couple, but only ones that required actual warping of the mouth shape or size. (I prefere MS Paint for simple pixel to pixel matching since Photoshop likes to enterpret the image differently rather than showing the exact bitmap.)
All in all it took about 2 weeks of actual work. My only concern is that people won't really know how to react to a somewhat upbeat drama video, and that it might not set well with Naruto fans who never gave Naruto and Hinata as a couple much thought. Oh well, I'm a fan thus I express so.
