This is my first video. It was created as an entry for Yaoi-Con 2003.
If you're not familiar with Raideen (also romanized "Reideen" or "Rei Deen"), when the guys transform into Raideen, they rip off their clothes. When they transform back, their clothes do not magically reappear, so they end up having some serious scenes... naked. It seemed rather natural to put some of those scenes to stripper music. The music used is "The Stripper" from the Full Monty soundtrack.
Footage captured off the laser discs with Virtual Dub. Video made with Vegas Video. Took over 80 hours of editing (but some of that was just learning the program).
Because I was working with just the "naked bits" of the anime (and therefore had very limited footage), I cut about 30 seconds out of the song. It was still a challenge to find enough footage. (Strangely enough, I've used no clips from the episode with the most nudity; it was too angsty.) I mention this because I don't want people to get the wrong impression about the series. There's more to it than half-naked bishounen (and it's fairly easy to follow even without knowing Japanese).
