Anime – Revolutionary Girl Utena
Song – The Birthday Massacre – Kill the Lights
Completed March 2010
Premiered April 2, 2010
The idea of Utena as a broken fairy tale was one that I kicked around in my head for a long time while I was planning this video. Unfortunately, the execution here (especially some of the mask edges) was kind of flawed, given how badly I rushed actually making this video before the Anime Boston deadline. In all, I spent about 19 hours straight on it, finishing about two hours before the deadline.
I still like the silhouette effect I used here, and may use it again if I find the right place for it.
