- Metallica Wherever I May Roam
I'm not intending to upload this video, but I figured I would add it to the list, just so someone knows that I made it.
This is the first video I regarded as a failure. After 3 successful videos, this was a big dissapointment. I liked the idea of doing a video about Ryoga to "Wherever I May Roam", because Ryoga is sort of a lonely wanderer mostly by bad luck and lack of direction, but he fits the song surprisingly well. I realized that the begining of the video was good but the ending just drags on, and is uninteresteing. I realized that it was the length of the song that caused the problem, and it was a learning experience for me.
This made my next Metallica video "To Live is to Die" to Record of Lodoss War, a much better video because I chose to deliberatly shorten the song. Had I not done this video, then the Lodoss video would have been bad too, because it would have been too long. Now I consider carefully the length of the song and the amount of material I have, as well as whether the scope of the idea is large enough to hold attention though the video. I think this made a big difference in both my Lodoss War video and my Evangelion video to "Mutter".
