SH011 - _communicate()
video: Serial Experiments: Lain
music: Orgy - "Fiction (Dreams In Digital)"
link: depositfiles [38.6 MB]
editor: Dazzle MovieStar
production date: August 2001
It's hard to believe given how history has developed, but this was the first use of this source combo in AMVs, chronologically by production date. I did check prior to starting on it and found nothing. By the time it actually got entered into the .org catalog a year later, though, there were about nine other videos. So it goes -- and an important lesson in that if you want to do something first and have it stick, you need to actually work a bit.
This was the first video, chronologically, to get remastered as part of the SH Remasters Project that went in over November and December 2008. The video itself was still made from VHS source, because I still didn't have a DVD player (and even when I got one, I'd be capping rather than ripping until the start of 2005), but capped at DVD-resolution MPEG2, yielding a master copy that was suitable for doing something with later on down the line.
