- Zooly Siri Says
After watching the first episode of Mekakucity Actors, I wanted to make AMV that likened Ene to either some form of virus. After watching the rest of the series, it seemed to be a better fit to compare her to Apple's Siri program.
For those who don't know, Siri is the "intelligent personal assistant" built into to iPhone models 4S and later - It is voice activated and responds to commands and queries.
Had trouble finding a decent song to use for this concept as there were fewer Siri parody songs than I thought I'd have to choose from. It's mean to say I settled on this song, but I really was hoping for more Siri quotes to lip sync to. Otherwise it works really well.
I put this video together last minute for Anime North 2015, really only giving myself 12 hours grace before the deadline. As such I felt the pacing with regard to cut rate suffered in the last half. I had more footage to work with but it was starting to get quite repetitive. Don't want to bring my own video down too hard, just expressing my feelings on it. I still feel it's an enjoyable video.
The only digital effects done were in terms of lip syncing and lip flap removal, and that 1 visual gag for the "ratchet" line. And also the credits.
Not sure what possessed me to read my credits into Siri, but the way she misheard me and some of her responses made me laugh so I used it as the concept for the credits.
