Well, I can't say much, except that it's my first attempt at an anime music video. I don't have much to compare to, besides other people's work (never a real good idea) so obviously any and all comments are more than welcome.
Essentially, the story goes like this; I saw FLCL. I was amazed. During the first episode, I thought "wouldn't it be great to hear 'Do The Evolution' right about now?", so the idea formed and churned in my head until it finally sprang forth, if you'll pardon the pun.
I have plans to begin producing videos set to my own music, but this served as a test for my directorial abilities.
If the response is positive, five more videos will come, featuring various artists, perhaps including TSC, perhaps not.
The only part I'm really not pleased with completely is the bass synch to guitar break... just an experiment. Just in case you're interested, Pearl Jam isn't my favorite band or anything, I just thought the song fit the anime really... REALLY well. You'll see what I mean, perhaps.
The whole video took a few days to complete, since I had to render and compress the video every time I wanted to preview it, as my computer is very very slow and can't preview raw .avi in synch. So it was mostly math, combined with hit-and-miss that brought the rough cut to life, and the rest was intuition and frame-by-frame approximation.
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy!
