    I STILL love this one!

    My first comedy video! well, i guess Life of a Dog - Pt. 1 could be considered comedy but that one belongs more in the fun/upbeat category if you ask me.

    I had super uber fun making this ^_^ and i can't believe how fast it came together. i attribute that to it being shorter than all my other vids.

    all music comes from Dreamworks Animated Feature Film: The Road to El Dorado.

    It's Tough to be a God was written and composed by Tim Rice and Elton John, and sung by Kevin Kline and Kenneth Branagh.

    The Road to El Dorado is my favorite animated feature film, period. no disney, no miyazki,-->all Dreamworks.

    and i absolutely adore Host Club. typically i'm into Shounen i.e. Dragonball Z, One Piece, and so on. This is the first (and only i believe) Shoujo that i've ever gone squee over. just love it. i can watch over and over. i'm so glad i thought of putting two of my favorite things together ^_^ this was a blast.

    Editor's Notes:
    after finishing Curtain Call, Stryyder and i purchased a secondary hard drive worth 1 terabyte of space, and added 2 more gigs of RAM. because of the additional space we decided to try working straight from avi files instead of thru scripts. i gotta say the prep work took more time saving huffy files from the VOBs, but the end result i think was exceptionally worth it. Premiere didn't crash on me once, not during rendering, and not even once exporting. there is also a definite visual improvement. It's Tough to be a Host (granted is only 3 minutes) is only 35megs and is exceptionally high quality imo.
    I'll never work thru scripts again. I highly recommend adding the space and ram if you can afford it.
