NorCal Regionals 2009

NorCal Regionals is a yearly fighting game competition located at Sunnyvalle, CA. Filming the event, I went through six rolls of tape and used the best clips to compile a highlight reel of the event. This is the first time I’ve edited using Final Cut Pro, so I went wild with the various transitions and adjusting the audio levels, masking peaking audience noises with a video-game inspired musical track.

Bad Apple!! – Stop Motion PV

While I had no part in the creative production of this video; however, by surfing through Japanese video sharing website Nico Nico Douga and uploading this clip to YouTube, it became my first taste of understanding viral videos. Hundreds of thousands of views came the first week, including a mention on a segment on CNN. After answering hundreds of questions about the video, I’ve came to realize that viral videos not only entertain its audience but it serves other purposes such as creatives pieces of inspiration and motivation. This was also the first time I’ve used YouTube’s annotation feature to help aid viewers with song information, subtitles and link related videos.
