SIX done, ONE to go!
They're about 17 - 20sec long each, with a title and a kind of mini-AMV in the center to demo the category.
In no particular order:
Random Amusement: I'm re-using the one I did last year because it *still* cracks me up - Hello Kitty as the Eye of Sauron, with music taken form the 'Conan' movie OP theme.
Trailers: A long horseride pan from Millenium Actress set to the Good, Bad & the Ugly theme (E. Morricone.)
Genki: this is the one I haven't done yet.
Japanese Music: The girl-band from 'K-on' set to ep 37 Zettai Karen Children ED at 75% speed. Crunchier scratchier percussion and DEEP BASS for Mio. Composited with the classic IJN naval ensign in some parts of the background.
Action & Effects: A slice from one of my older AMVs, Honor of the Stars. The last battle of the Basroil set to the Terminator theme.
Retro: a spoof parody OP of an episode of the German WW2-era propaganda weekly called 'Die Wochenshau.' (We did the same thing in theatres at the time; here it was called Movietone News.) Title block reads 'Die Anime Wochinschau.' Music is from a panzerlied set to tank battle scenes from Valkyria Chronicles (TV.) Nothing Nazi in it though, no symbols, and strict editing of the lyrics for zero political, racist, anti-semetic, or anti-gay content. Video is 90% color desaturated, film graininess added in AfterEffects.
A similar project to the clip I did for one of the AMV Hell projects:
Victory Anime at Sea.
Tension: A slice from my 2005 Drama winner at Anime Vegas, Projekt Oktober.
That was my weekend...
