SH018 - Bakudan Law
video: Shonan Bakusozoku
music: Judas Priest - "Breaking The Law"
link: depositfiles [31.4 MB]
editor: Dazzle MovieStar
production date: September 2001
In sharp contrast to SH017, this video intentionally keeps itself inward-focused...though what you need, exactly, beyond Judas Priest and bikers acting like neds generally in time with the music, is kind of unclear. There may be a lesson in that: I'm always going to take risks and attempt projects that go a little bigger than they need to be, but you can get just as good results by simply lining things up and executing. (This and the previous video are running about identical scores over at the .org, separated by 0.03 star rating.) The ending is still kind of crap, but the remastering helps bring out the old-school animation production, at least to the degree that I was able to capture in the original VHS cap.
