- Paul Oakenfold Ready, Steady, Go
My first Iron Chef. As far as editing goesÖ The most fun Iíve had in a while.
The Tourney kicked off on Friday night 8 pm [+1 GMT] The Combatants consisting of LCY84, JCD, Zest, Dark-Krystal, Kwaichang and myself.
After the voting of the song took place [which was rather unanimous],
The editing commenced. We had 36 hours to make the best of the Paul Oaklands Ė Ready Steady Go.
I chose ScryedÖ Why? Simple, it has some of the best action scenes that Iíve seen in anime [and itís pretty to boot]. Another thing going for it are the 2 main characters Kazuma and Ryuho They in my opinion have the one of the best rivalries going to date.
So with those two things in mind I set out to create action vid which had elements of some sort of plot. PlotÖ well two rivals fighting, with flashbacks in between = plotÖ right? ok well maybe not, I had a weekend, so sue me.
But if itís action you are looking for, youíve come to the right place.
As godix might say [bless his soul] the vid may look like a winamp plugin puked all over it. Donít listen to him, itís the cynicism speaking, or as he might say ď the realistĒ [pfft :P] but it is rather effectsy, didnít go overkill on the shine like I did in NTB, but thereís enough to spice it up. Lots of Bar and rectangle effects [think NTB only not hexagons :P]
As far as editing and style go Ė itís pretty much the bastard son of Kenshinís Technique Beat, Bebop Rush and Narutoís Technique beat. I had to think fast so I mainly used the stuff I learned from making those. 30 % premiere 70% After Effects
Hmmm, Iím forgetting stuffÖ well Iíve only slept like 5 or 6 hours the entire weekend so uíll excuse me. Iíll update as it comes to mind.
Lastly I want to say many thanks to LCY84 for inviting me to participate in the tourney, I had a blast, canít wait for the next one. To the other guys alos participating, I had fun in #Iron-Chef [hope Zestís PC is ok].
Till next time.
