This was my Project: Editor 2 Round 2 video. The theme of the round was “Word Association,” and the word I was given was “Shoryuken.”

I originally thought of using the Street Fighter Anime, but I don’t own it, and figured it would be a bit of a cop-out, so I went to the original source: the games. Which led to the people that play the games, and my hunt for scenes of characters playing video games.

“Kung Fu Fighting” felt like a very appropriate song, and the BUS STOP version that was included in the original DDR was the perfect length.

Thanks to my friend Adam for being Player 2 in the screen captures, and to Kit for pointing out I screwed up the original capture of the Playstation footage. Also thanks to mirkosp, godix, Kit, G_Q, MeteorDragon, and ngsilver for making suggestions on where to find scenes that might work.

This received a “So Much Win” award from Code in the P:E thread, and also won Best Fun/Upbeat/Etc. at its con debut at AAC 09.

My video for Project Editor 2 Round 1.

The theme for the round was “Tribute” though my video went more the “Trailer” route. I decided on Gunbuster and an overblown dramatic trailer-music style song for this one, and the text is cheesy as all heck, but overall, I had fun with it.

It finished seventh in the round, out of 17 videos.
