Notes : Being the second video, I was still in the process of learning how to edit, and how to put some new arsenals in my toolbox of editing goodies. In this case, I chose to do a lip synch video. The original footage was subtitled, which added a different little challenge to selecting footage. Also, I wanted to try and match the wierd sound of the song to the footage.
All in all, I'm happy with the outcome, of the three videos I currently have it definitely has the most character. That's due to the song tho!
This video's win in the Best of the Decade contest was a bit of a surprise, since there was alot of good competition.. (And alot of good videos that never made it into the contest..) The audience seemed to remember Spider tho, so I can't complain!
On a different note, as a video maker, the best moment and compliment I ever had regarding this video had to have been at the Anime Central 2000 MV Panel. It was shown as a video to show Lip Synch. When the audio busted and only half the audio played, the panelists, as well as a few panel attendees went and filled in the key lines. Hearing a bunch of people say, "We love you spider!" in synch with the video was probably the best possible compliment I could have gotten. My thanks! <tipping an invisible hat>
