Despite the six-month layoff in the middle of editing (this was about 35 seconds worth of done from mid-August 2014 to mid-February 2015), SH124 eventually finished, and didn't turn out to have a weird A-part/B-part split. Like SH122 and SH123 before it, this was intended as a tuneup video for a later project, but the volume of work required and the long layoff in the middle, without attendant consequences, kind of turned that around. This is its own video and strong enough to carry its own weight.
The point of this video was to cut against the foofy moe video source and carry a tech/slam death metal track through precise intercutting and precise trigger location. This mostly worked, the intercutting more visibly than the triggers because holy fuck is this triggered to hell and back. The viewer probably will just have that impression; in process, I got really comfortable for what I wanted to do with a trigger to get appropriate effect, messed around with color settings, and finally built a trigger of more than one second length, so I can cut down a little on clip totals in the future. Maybe.
Shin Hats Self Grade: B/B+. This project also turned into a lesson on how to use, and not fuck up, 10-bit source. This lesson was not completely learned, and the video has some scars from it. Mostly, though, it is three and a half minutes of triggered slams and stupid jokes.
stats: # clips: 287. average length: 0.76 seconds. total time: 26.5 hours.
About the sources: Katalepsy are a slammy, techy Muscovite death metal band who got everyone's attention for their really good but really short (especially on originals) Musick Brings Injuries, then fulfilled that promise with Autopsychosis; the song in the video is edited down by about 30 seconds, but still is an accurate representation of that record's awesomeness. The anime, whose title is equally awkward in English or in Japanese (literal/original-prod-approved title is in the credits), is your typical replacement-level moeblob garbage, but hooked me by being set (well, "filmed") in Bavaria; despite the French writing in places, most of the exteriors are obviously Munich, with a couple from Nuremburg. The extent to which this is relevant to anyone else's interests will vary. The music under the title card is from the intro to "Monarch Omega", the lead track on Abnormality's killer Contaminating The Hive Mind album. The title is, of course, a pun on the classic Bathory track.
