  • Comments: Hardware: 2000+ Athlon XP, Two 7500RPM 40GB HDD's, 1GB PC2100 DDR RAM, ATI All-in-wonder 7500

    Software: Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Cool Edit 2000, Virtual Dub

    Let me start off by saying that the hardware really DOES effect the editing process. The stuff I used to make this video is about 4x faster then what I had for my first two videos, AND IT SHOWS!
    Also, after my second video I took about 9 months off to update to this hardware, and to actually LEARN about premiere (I bought a book and actually read part of it, lol) and took the time to read some guides (note: I still did not understand AVISynth untill AFTER I had finished this vid)

    I came up with the idea after seeing Austen Powers 3 in 2002. I started in December 2002, and worked on and off until March 2003 to finish it in time for Otakon 2003.

    Everything I did in this video, Masking and composing, lip sync, effects (the little that there are), workign with live action, capturing and ripping, codecs, and new software like After effects and virtual dub, were all new to me. It was a GIGANTIC learning process for me.

    I am VERY pleased with the outcome of this project. All in all I believe I have improved greatly over the past year.

    This is the first official video of my editing studio: "WESTWARE"

    2003-Anime Evolution: First Place, Comedy.
    2003-Otakon: Third Place, Comedy (First Honnorable menton).

    Song: Hard Knock Life (Dr. Evil Remix), By Mike Myers
    Song Lyrics:

    Take the baseline out... no? You don't have to
    Bounce wit it!

    ["Annie" sample] + (Dr. Evil)
    It's the hard knock life, for us
    It's the hard knock life (yeahhhh) for us!!
    Steada treated, we get tricked
    Steada kisses, we get kicked
    It's the hard knock life!!

    [Dr. Evil]
    I don't know how to be, no crib on MTV, God only knows
    Got my Mini-Me in the GP - see how it goes
    Evil's all that I see; you ask me my name?
    D to the Rizzo, E to the Vizzo, I to the Lizzo
    I'm a crazy motherf.... ("It's a hard knock life!")
    Y'all knew that - Austin caught me in the first act
    Like it's all backwards, what's with that?
    So I'll make a prophecy; from the dogs, to the Mini-Me
    Gimme an Escalade, a 2-way, bling bling on eBay
    Domino motherf....

    ["Annie" sample] + (Dr. Evil)
    It's the hard knock life (yeahhhh) for us
    It's the hard knock life, for us!! (Stick that in yer pipe and smoke it!)

    Steada treated, we get tricked (Uh-huh)
    Steada kisses, we get kicked (This is for all my homies in Brouge)
    It's the hard knock life, for us (uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh)
    It's the hard knock life, for us!!
    Steada treated, we get tricked (Ahhh, Cristal, my Moto)
    Steada kisses, we get kicked (A couple of be-hotches, why not?)
    It's the hard knock life!!

    [Dr. Evil]
    I gotta bust a move, droppin bust-a-groove, feelin fine
    Got an evil crew, Goldmember too, lick my nine
    Till then I'll (*edited*) on my (*edited*)
    (*edited*) brains up (*edited*) on call
    and (*edited*) your {*edited*) that's all
    Fa shizzle my nizzle y'all

    ("It's a hard knock life!")

    This is a shoutout to Hova, God MC
    You all know him, that's Jay-Z
    I met him; well, I saw him in a restaurant once
    ("It's a hard knock life!")
    Stick that in yer, blunt and smoke it!
    Yeahhhh, I said BLUNT!
