SH054 - me[tamor]phitic
music: Dark Tranquillity - "Cathode Ray Sunshine"
link: depositfiles [42.2 MB]
editor: Dazzle MovieStar
production date: September 2002
Though it involved 30+ hours of production time, this was another relatively "snap" idea, also coming out of MITAC, indirectly; I hadn't been very impressed with the show seeing it as club, but listening through the Damage Done record for the first time, this song immediately jumped out as needing to be videographed with this source. A lot of the hits in this video, especially the ones that actually work, were done mentally while listening to the CD, in the process of forming the idea. This is actually how most ideas get put together; the exceptional case, like the Polterchrist song I had kicking around in my head while watching Good Witch of the West that hasn't actually become a video yet, goes in the other direction. This is how I get at declaring myself music-first; every idea turns into a combination somewhere, but most SH videos take the form of presenting X music using Y anime, rather than using music Y to say something about anime X.
