I'll keep my mouth shut in the future :)
Eh, if I was really pissed, I would'a e-mailed you privately. Next time ask first.

Goes to Helen of Allegretto Productions
For the Video “Absolution”
To the song “Allegretto” by Bond
To the Anime Ah! My Goddess Movie
That would be jasper-isis (Helen) and krzT (Kristie). It was a collab.

Here's something that I'm curious about: Since the video was created by the two of us, does it mean that we both qualify for the Masters contest now? >__>

Congrats again everyone :wink:

And it was an honor to win best character profile, I wish I could've gotten down there.
The best effects are the ones you don't notice.

To anyone who's interested, I posted a download link to this video in my journal. Can't really make an entry on the site since it's completely unrelated to anime.
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

And did anyone ever notice that the movie Dark City borrowed gratuitously from Beautiful Dreamer?
I'm not sure it's gratuitous, but there are definite similarities. I suspect Dreamer got its theme from Native American legends about the gods creating the world on the back of a turtle.

A quick Google search brings up several articles comparing Oshii (director of Beautiful Dreamer) with Proyas (director of Dark City). Dark City vs Avalon; I, Robot vs Ghost In the Shell, etc.

Actually no, it's based on a legend of an Emperor who, upon saving a turtle, accepted an invitation from the turtle to visit the dragon king's kingdom (or something like that) and rode on his back to the mansion under the sea. When he finally returned, he discovered that he'd been gone for thousands of years instead of just a few days that he'd thought. There's actually a sidelong reference to this in the film, but you've got to watch out for it...

Interesting...I want to watch the movie again now, so I'll look for that (IF I can find my DVD; couldn't locate it last night).

With Google, I came across another city-on-turtle reference in a review of an anime "Amon Saga" - which I haven't seen.
