  • Comments: My favorite parts of Excel Saga are without a doubt the Pedro bits. The poor immigrant worker truly is a tragic figure yet you can't help but laugh at his constant misery and misfortune. I always wanted to string his story together as a singular movie and what better way to do it than as an AMV? The biggest obstacle initially was finding the right song. Though consistently tragic the overall pace of Pedro's story shifts and becomes more and more bizarre as the series rolls along. However, looking at it as a whole, the narrative can be separated into three acts without much difficulty. So I settled on using shortened cuts of three soundtrack tunes, one for each act respectively (technically four songs if you count the tiny prologue). The most challenging goal, made even more difficult without the use of dialogue, and the key to making this project work was to tell a coherent story. Naturally, a few of the more irrelevant Pedro moments from the series were omitted. The format of this video and the music is cleary inspired (stolen) from Kill Bill. This was truly an ambitious, very challenging project. I'm incredibly satisfied with the way it turned out.
