This was the video I most wanted to make, and I waited until I stumbled on Mr. Arthur Barry, who not only owned the 50 laser disc box set, but also had a photographic memory and had watched every episode of Urusei Yatsura. All I'd have to do is ask for a scene where X happened, however unlikely X was, such as... does Lum ever stab Ataru?... and he'd tell me not only to look at the Nth disk, but also which side, and how many minutes into the disk I should look. It was amazing. This video is as much his as it is mine.
Video Title: I want you Back
Artist/Song: The Jackson 5
Video Length: 2:22
A rush job for Disney DDR for JACON. Very tight. After procrastinating myself out of Brad's DDR 3 and 4 projects, I was just happy to turn this one in to Ken. As with every one of my projects, it was edited in less than a day, and to this date, I've never finished a project I've saved and walked away from.
Video Title: Love Is All Around
Artist/Song: Love is All Around by Joan Jett
Video Length: 1:51
Iron Chef at AWA 15, celebrating my return to running the Video Art Track. I was hopelessly outclassed by Dr. Matt Wagner, but I finished what I found to be an entertaining video.
Video Title: Love Can Do
Artist/Song: Amy Grant
Video Length: 3:55
This was my very first video, made on a lark. There's exactly one edit in it, about half way through, where I reduced the length of a fade-through-white on the original Kimagure Orange Road Music Station OAV. Other than that I just thought the song matched, and let the audio run. It's rather uncanny. This was made after attending AnimeCon '91 when I discovered I wasn't the only person to think making Anime Music Videos would be cool, that enough others had to fill up hours of programming on the in-house video channel.
Video Title: I'm Gonna Fly
Artist/Song: Amy Grant
Video Length: 4:27
My friend Mike, in Orlando, dared me to make an action video to Kiki's Delivery Service. I made this instead. Hey, it has some action in it. It's also pretty much the whole story, meaning you no longer need to see the very fine, wonderful movie, if you've watched this. Need I say, "Spoiler Alert"?
Video Title: One 2 Many In My Heart
Artist/Song: One 2 Many
Video Length: 4:17
The first video I didn't plan to make. A friend dropped off a few shows and CDs he thought might make good videos, and I just kinda listened and watched. The first CD that had promise was Van Halen's "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" which had "Right Now" on it... which would later be made (better than I ever could) by Doki Doki. The other song I liked was this one, which may as well have been written for Five Star Stories. To date this is my most popular video.
Video Title: Blame
Artist/Song: Mike & the Mechanics
Video Length: 5:14
My last video for a long stretch, this was made around the time of Panda Khan (AWA #-1), held in my apartment after I moved to Atlanta. At the time I was attempting to re-master Jeff Tatarek's "Why Me?" video (which I failed to do, because he didn't use Nausicaa as his source, he used Warriors of the Wind, and the same footage isn't available between the Japan and US releases). Instead, I made this as a bit of an homage, selecting a song off the same album as "Why Me?" and addressing related issues. Aside one FX performed with the jog-shuttle dial on the CAV LD source, I really like this one, and it remains a personal favorite.
Video Title: Mad Machine
Artist/Song: Mad Machine by Priss & the Replicants
Video Length: 5:09
My attempt to go artsy, by using a Japanese song from an anime to American live-action footage. I learned a lot here, specifically that editing live action is very different from editing anime. I could do better these days, but never returned to live action.
Video Title: I Surrender
Artist/Song: Samantha Fox
Video Length: 3:51
This is crap. The source was the American LD pressing and the black level is awful. I used a Radio Shack FX generator that looked great on display but VCRs did strange things with the result. I used it to letterbox 4:3 footage without adjusting position, which means things are oddly composed. And the song/video match is, in my opinion, obvious and weak.
Video Title: China in your Hand
Artist/Song: China in your hand by T'Pau
Video Length: 3:306
My best work, in my opinion. Edited both in my room and at an artist table outside the Video Art Track while Dr. Matt Wagner was running it. This song is amazing when set to Castle in the Sky. I hit one editing block about 2/3s of the way in and a very creative suggestion was given to me by Denise Thompson that is my favorite moment in the video.
