Spoiler Warning for Sailor Moon SuperS.
This has been a long time coming. Since I first picked up this hobby, I've wanted to make an amv about one of my all-time favorite villains, Queen Nehelenia.
I've grown fond of her crazy band of circus freaks and their outrageous antics. That said, I didn't expect them to completely overrun the video. ^_^; Well...it's Sailor Moon; there's bound to be some silliness mixed into the drama.
Mostly I just had fun editing whatever struck my fancy. As per my usual, there is a story; there is not-so-subtle symbolism; there is
deep thematic philosophizing on the inner workings of the human hearta dancing seal.
This is also my reaction to the surplus of eye-candy Sailor Moon vids that only use transformation scenes (not that I don't love those--there's just more to this series than girls waving wands around!).
Even with R2 DVD rips, cleaning Sailor Moon was murder. I wager I spent more time preparing the footage than editing.
Editing Programs: Premiere CS4, Photoshop & After Effects
Time: four months working casually and taking lots of long breaks
