Lady gaga + Jin Roh = Monster

Post by SQ » Mon Dec 12, 2011 6:37 am



DIRECT DOWNLOAD LINK HERE (53mb) - too gory for local hosting.

(direct carryover from the vid info page)

My one video of the year, I suppose. xP

Short Description:
This started out as a dark humor/stupid video, just because. But then as I was editing it, I took it super seriously so now it's almost not a comedy at all... Unless you're really sick, I guess.

Long Description:
I've had this idea pretty much ever since this song came out. I had done something a bit similar with my "Lucky Jin: A Guro Comedy" video. But this video's way better.
I wanted to make a hilarious yet sick comedy video featuring this girl (from Jin-Roh) getting ripped apart. I was going to send it into AMV Hell. I was determined to make it happen.

Then life got in the way. Oh well.
I don't know how I managed it... In fact I don't even remember editing this video at all LOL. But I finished it on deployment this year at some point and saved it on the 30th of september 2011. But I didn't get a chance to make the entry/upload it until now (december). Gotta love the US Navy, lolamirite?

Anyway, I hope you enjoy. Or not.
I dunno what I'm expecting from this.
This was just my sick little experiment haha.

EDIT:
I got a new bumper for my videos. Mt. Fuji pic I took. I kind of miss the old 'serious cat editing' bumper but I lost the source pic for that long a go and I was tired of having no bumper at all. Do you like this? The thing that flashes by in the corner is the month/year of completion of the video (mostly for my benefit).

Also, just in case you were wondering, I shortened the "Monster" song so you only have to deal with a 1:34 AMV.

Well, this was unique. I really enjoyed it. In a "I like the artistic statement behind it", not the whole "I enjoy watching people getting eaten" thing. >_>

Visual quality was kind of sub-par. Might be something to consider in the future with a different container. Plus, I know I've seen gorgeous Jin-roh AMVs in quality terms.

Pretty nice sync. Unique in some parts to what I'm used to seeing, so I liked that. Plus the song/anime worked extremely well together.

But what really made it entertaining was that it was such a good match of anime and music. Plus, the mood was so dark, yet romantic. It was a weird feeling. Almost as if them having a beautiful thing, and his wolfy side getting soft, but then it all going far away after her situation with the pack. Good scene selection really brought this out.

I'd reccomend. The gore bit wasn't THAT terrible, if that's something that might turn others off. :up:

LOL see this surprised me too. Because I also enjoy watching it. It's got a unique "prettiness" to it. Aside from the ending.

I know this is something I need to work on. For the moment I just throw shit in wmv because unlike my experience with pretty much every other container and/or codec on the planet, if I encode it to wmv once, it comes out at exactly what I expect it to look like and at a decent filesize. Whereas wit other things, my results are always all over the place, require somewhat of a guess and check system, etc., etc. Also I can export directly to wmv from premiere, whereas pretty much all other options require exporting a lossless copy, porting to some other software, then encoding.

Which I would do if I were on a desktop (I work on a mid-range laptop currently) and/or had a lot of free time on my hands. Suffice to say it, I do not. So wmvs for me. As long as it doesn't look like total ass, I'm okay with it.

Now, if you have a suggestion that could/would solve my whole "time" issue (not too process intensive methods would be a bonus) then I will gladly follow.
But my current editing situation really kind of sucks and tbh I'm surprised I churn out any sort of videos at all (even if it's for my own benefit only).
Pretty nice sync. Unique in some parts to what I'm used to seeing, so I liked that. Plus the song/anime worked extremely well together.
The combination is really awesome. I'm a bit disappointed I wasn't able to catch a humor aspect (I guess I suck at this in general, I've never been able to make a good comedy video) but what I did end up with, I like. And I'm glad you liked it too. But could you elaborate on the 'unique synching'? Or were you referring to something else in its 'uniqueness'?
But what really made it entertaining was that it was such a good match of anime and music. Plus, the mood was so dark, yet romantic. It was a weird feeling. Almost as if them having a beautiful thing, and his wolfy side getting soft, but then it all going far away after her situation with the pack. Good scene selection really brought this out.
Thank you. When I first started this video, the idea I had for it was the 'pack scene' being repeated in effects-driven loops at "He ate my heart" but after about 5 minutes of working on the video I realized that wouldn't work at all and I went with something somewhat-story driven. Turns out though that the Gaga song and this movie really do work out rather perfectly-- in an ironic way. Have you seen the movie? Because what is displayed in this video (and written in the song) is almost exactly what happens (At least metaphorically).
I'd reccomend. The gore bit wasn't THAT terrible, if that's something that might turn others off. :up:
Thank you. This(your recommendation) means a lot to me. ^_^

Even though the song was about a Monster, I totally did not expect that wolf pack to come out and eat her. :shock: I was expecting something along the lines of "eating" metaphorically as in "destroying" but not actual literal eating. :rofl:

So that made it quite....interesting. I was sad about the song cut though. :cry:

Lol. That's where the comedy part evolved from. I thought it was too perfect to pass up.

Well both happen in the movie (and song. And AMV, I thought). So I thought it worked out. ^^

Why so? Was the song not cut well?

Thank you for commenting. ^_^
