    This video received the following nominations:

    -- Best Parody Video, and
    -- Best Use Of Visual Effects
    at the 2004 Viewers Choice Awards. Thanks to everyone who voted. ^_^

    This video is a parody of the original music video for JXL's remix of Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation". My video is basically the same as the original video, which consisted of different people (singers, dancers, etc.) dancing or moving inside different boxes. In my version, I made it so that the moving people where all different anime characters instead.

    If you're interested in seeing the original video that my video was based on, there are high-quality versions on KaZaA, and several places where you can find a streaming video version on the internet. Here are a few:

    The backgrounds for this video were taken directly from the original "A Little Less Conversation" video, with the people erased and anime characters put into their place. Therefore, resizing all of the frames turned out to be a bit of a problem, since the original anime footage is a "normal" resolution (360 x 240), while the backgrounds were in widescreen format (352 x 190).

    So, yes, this entire video is edited frame-by-frame. You might even call this a Photoshop project rather than a Premiere project, though I still did quite a bit of editing in Premiere as well. It's entirely made up of .BMP images that were in some way edited in Photoshop. I did it all just to see if I could do it. ;)

    Huge thanks to FurryCurry for the Excel Saga opening footage. ^_^
