  • Comments: Hi all,

    well, this video doesn't have too much thought behind it, I created it more or less just for fun ^_^

    At first I need to thank rubyeye for his Phenomeon video which got me into the anime Princess Nine and made me go and buy the incredibly cheap boxset. Before it arrived I thought already I could make a video with it. I searched a bit in my songs and found another awesome song by Move (which I used for Overdrive already) called Strike on. The title arlready fitted, I was just worried if there are enough fast paced scenes in Princess Nine as the song was as powerful as Over Drive.
    Well, after watching it I felt it could work, the only thing I needed now were the lyrics. They're in japanese for the most of the song, so I asked Paulo if he could translate me some keywords of the song. Thanks for doing this, Paulo ! ^_^
    I didn't eternerly want to synch the lyrics because of the song's meaning, furthermore just to make scene selection easier. It worked, the video progressed very well with this.

    Some (in my opinion) really childish effects found their way in this video which I learned from the Children Project and a bit at work (Photoshop is a big element in my job-education). All in all I used about 34 image mattes in this video. Strange, usually I'm used to passive effects you souldn't notice, I guess I just wanted to try out the other side of the road =)
    As for lipsynch, I synched a few movements, but it's so few that I don't think it's worth to give a score for it, so I disabled it. If you want to score it in an opinion, just tell me and I'll enable it ^_^

    As Princess Nine wasn't really fast paced, I speeded up most of the scenes. Lucky for me, the scenes were quite often in slow-motion, that means after speeding those up the motion got really smooth and clean :D

    The rest of the video is simple Baseball-action synch. That should be it.
    Don't except too much, as said it's just a fun-video, not one I tried to push my efforts to the maximum with.

    Maybe I'll write some subtitles for this video sometime, but as for now...
    Here are the lyrics if you want to get some meaning out of the scenes:
    Strike on, ride on, ride on my own
    Hurry up and move into the streamin'
    Strike on, ride on, ride on my own
    Screamin' to the mountain high

    Hey run and run, baby run, soshite yatsu ga ikuze (Then he will go)
    Aadonna yume oikake (What dream to run for) donna shousou ni oware (What things to hope for)
    Loud desire unaru (come) backfire biribiri (eletric) bang to
    Konna ni akuseru funde mo (Even pushing the accel like this) furi kirenai mono (it's never enough)

    Naze konna kewashii michi nori ni tatteirun darou (Why am I standing on this hard way of life)
    Sonzai toka koudou no konpon no riyuu sagasu koto (I'll search for the reason of my decisions and my existence)
    Sore jitai ga kitto ikiru reason (That would be possibly the reason to be alive)
