    Programs used: Adobe Premiere 6, Photoshop

    I just had to make a Naruto video once I saw the anime. It wasn't too difficult to pick a song either--I've been dying to use this song by the awesome Christian rock band, Thousand Foot Krutch. Naruto was the only anime I'd seen that had the right amount of action that I thought this song needed.

    The video centers around Naruto and Sasuke, and their friendship/rivalry.

    I ended up putting a lot more work into this project than I'd planned to at first. What ended up taking a lot of time was removing credits from some of the opening scenes I used--I ended up painting them out frame-by-frame in Photoshop, which was a huge pain... But thankfully, I had raws for most of the episodes, so I didn't have to worry about subtitles too much. I also used Photoshop for some more fun stuff, like for tinting some eyes and removing backgrounds.

    If you're like us, calling all riders
    Roll up beside us, no place to hide us
    All freedom fighters, let's unite us
    Switch on your nitrous and let's go...
    Destination for navigation
    Man up ya stations, feel the sensation
    Surround invasion with communication
    Move quick, we might avoid contamination

    Down, here comes the sound
    Everyone pound your feet to this Phenomenon
    Now, let's make it loud
    Let's show em all how you move to this Phenomenon
    Roll, open your soul
    Maybe lose control inside of this Phenomenon
    Just let yourself go
    And let everyone know you move to this Phenomenon

    Don't let these spiders crawl up beside us
    They want to bite us, inject the virus
    Raise up your lighters, praise to the Righteous
    We need You to guide us
    Get prepared to go!

    Can't take it anymore, shake until we move the floor
    What are we waiting for? Let's go
    I'm tired of being ordinary, don't care if there's people staring
    I'll rely on Your strength to carry me on
    I'm not invisible like you
    Next time things get a little messed up
    I'll shine, but I'll never be see-through
    I'm fine just trying to wake the rest up

    You move to this Phenomenon
    You move to this Phenomenon
