Magical Dreamer

Footage: The Little Mermaid (1989)
Audio: Purachina (Platinum) by Yoko Kanno & Maaya Sakamoto
Noticing that Ariel was, effectively, an anime Magical Girl I made this vid to the 3rd Cardcaptor Sakura opening.

Childhood's End - 'The Children Project' Alternate Ending

Footage: In the Evening of the Moonlit Night (Tsukiyo no Ban ni) (2002)
Audio: Children by Robert Miles
I guess a critique of the eroticisation of children in anime wasn't what the project coordinated wanted for The Children Project's last track.

Aim for Victory!

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Gunbuster (Aim for the Top) (1988)
Audio: War by Vince DiCola
Noriko's coming of age story told with giant robots and incredibly cheesy 80s synth. Pretty great, tbh.

The video I edited at Iron Chef, in 2 hours, with a program I'd never used before. It was hell and I didn't know the source footage well enough.

Road To Iron Chef

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Original Art by Big Big Truck (2003)
Audio: Original Voice Acting by AbsoluteDestiny, Kusoyaro, Akimbo
A parody video made for a panel at Anime Weekend Atlanta about the preparations for that year's Iron Chef contest.

Burn

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Shiki-Jitsu (2001)
Audio: Burn by The Cure
The first live action video. Very static editing-wise, really just a collection of colours and nicely framed character shots.

Storytelling - A Gothic Fairy Tale

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Comedy (Sweat Punch 3) (2002)
Audio: Edward Scissorhands Medley by Danny Elfman
Essentially a rewrite of an excellent but rare short animated feature, this video was made to show off this gorgeous footage and uses pretty much every scene from the anime. Didn't expect this to be so successful.

Virtua Anime (DDR Project 4th Mix: Track 50)

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Cowboy Bebop (1998),Daicon IV Opening Animation (1983),Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995),Perfect Blue (1998),Revolutionary Girl Utena (1997),Sailor Moon (1992)
Audio: Ninzaburo (Furuhata's Theme) by C.J. Crew feat Sledge
First and last time I used 3D models in a vid. This was painful to make and it took a seriously long time too. The result was fun though and at least I can say I've tried making 3D and made something enjoyable.

North (Noir DVD 7 Omake)

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Noir (2001)
Audio: Kirei na Kanjou (Pure Emotions) by Akino Arai

I had this video planned for ages and when I finally got around to making it I missed the Otakon deadline. Oh well, it went to AWA and was a big success!

AniMixPart 2 (Track 50)

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Ghiblies (2003)
Audio: Shimmy Shake by 720 Boyz
Another gap filler for a multi-editor project. They don't get much shorter than this.

Dinosaur Studios Experiment 2: Wired Hypnosis

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Serial Experiments Lain (1998)
Audio: Modulation #1 by Otomo Yoshihide
Part two of the Dinosaur Studios pretence. Works really well in a big audience.

Dinosaur Studios Experiment 1: City of the Rain Dogs

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Wolf's Rain (2003)
Audio: 9th and Hennepin by Tom Waits
Made as a joke. Deliberately pretentious attempt at baiting comments using sockpuppets. This is the film noir one.

Memories of Love and Conflict

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Saikano (2002)
Audio: Last Goodbye by Jeff Buckley
Ill-fated teen romance and dreamland melodrama abound.

Macho Duck

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Fun and Fancy Free (1947),The Three Caballeros (1944)
Audio: Macho Duck by DOMINO
Another situation where I was helping out a multi editor project. This time to a 4 minute song about Donald Duck. Ugh.

A God-awful Small Affair

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Metropolis (1927),Metropolis (Anime) (2001)
Audio: Life on Mars? by David Bowie
A critique of Rintaro's Metropolis and my first experiment with After Effects.

That Other Girl

Footage: Kodomo no Omocha (1996)
Audio: I Still Have That Other Girl by Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach
It makes sense if you know the show, honestly.

Miyazawa Rap

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: His and Her Circumstances (1998),Kodomo no Omocha (1996)
Audio: The Colour of Defeat is a Dark Dark Blue by Kurata Sana
Really makes no sense without having seen both shows used.

Boys (DDR Project 2nd Mix Track 05)

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Descendants of Darkness (2000)
Audio: Boys by Smile.dk
I was asked at the last minute to do this particular track on the 2nd DDR Project. I agreed.

Arima Shinjikun

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: His and Her Circumstances (1998),Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)
Audio: To Cut A Long Story Short by Spandau Ballet
This video is a character profile of two characters from animations directed by Hideaki Anno done in the style of his post-Nadia work. As such, it's very stylised and not to everyone's taste. Despite being essentially an experimental video, it was very well received and is one of my favourites.

Gratuitous Porn Video

Footage: Ebichu Minds the House (1999)
Audio: Monkeys by Mad Caddies
Created for the Mindwarp Entertainment Awards: Adult Video category so there would be enough entries to make it a valid category. I still laugh at the last clip. As in the show, very pantomime humour.

Shameless Rock Video

Footage: FLCL (2000)
Audio: Speed King by Deep Purple
This is the video that got me known among anime music video creators and it's something of an anthem video for me. FLCL is in my mind one of the finest Psychotronic works and this was a chance for me to play with its themes and have a lot of fun.

With One Accord In A Flash

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: My Neighbors the Yamadas (1999)
Audio: Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win! by Shiro Sagisu

Blues Driven Naota (Instant Music Video)

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: FLCL (2000)
Audio: Doll by Foo Fighters
Made for an instructional panel on making music videos at MinamiCon 2002 and hence contains a lot of techniques which may or may not be appropriate for this video.

After the End (picsub)

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)
Audio: After the End by Neon Genesis Evangelion Cast
While doing various fansubs, I decided to give some visuals to the Evangelion Audio Drama. The translation was readily available on the internet but it was much more fun to watch it the way you would an episode. So using some really rudimentary Photoshop, I made effectively a slide show for the audio drama.

Poor Miyazawa, or Monkey Wrench

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: His and Her Circumstances (1998)
Audio: Monkey Wrench by Foo Fighters
Kare Kano (as it is known) is such fun to make videos with due to the massive amounts of visual comedy. I later remastered this one a tiny tiny bit and added some, not particularly necessary, fancy additions and tweaked the timing a touch. Still a video I enjoy but technically flawed in many ways.

New Skin (AccelaNation)

Downloads: 480p mp4
Footage: Serial Experiments Lain (1998)
Audio: New Skin by Incubus
My first amv. Vaguely about the 'Wired' addiction in Serial Experiments Lain. Made to test out a Pinnacle DC30 capture card that we were using for fansubbing.

Breed (Unreleased)

Footage: Akira (1988)
Audio: Breed by Nirvana
This is technically my first vid. Made in 1993 using two VCRs, it no longer exits but I'm listing it here for nostalgia sake.
