I really loved the last Bleach filler arc and I've wanted to do something about it for a while now but I was never sure what exactly it should be. A week or so ago I got the idea to do an AMV with all of the fights in it, but I decided that might be a bit much considering this is my first time doing something like this. Instead, I decided to dedicate a video to my favorite character from the arc: Kageroza Inaba / Oku Yushima.
The process was pretty fun, although it really stressed to me how much I need a new Macbook. I wanted to make it HD but it was taking over an hour transcode 2 minutes from a 720p MP4 so I decided to go SD. Not to mention that I almost burnt myself touching the bottom of it the laptop after it had been cranking for an hour. Chopping the video up was pretty straight forward... time consuming, but straight forward. Playing around with the music and audio brought up a couple of challenges in getting things synced up and have to splice a few songs up here and there to make things work. My background with music and audio production helped out a lot with getting those parts right enough. Some things stick out like a sore thumb, but I think that's my ears. Messing around with sound effects was interesting too.
All in all it was a lot of fun to play with. I plan on doing ALL of the characters' fights, but I finished up episode 319 and wanted to get some feedback on it. I'd LOOOOOVE to hear what you all think about it.
