This was a silly, quick video done for AAC’s 2012 theme contest, “Year of the Dragon.” I wanted a completely silly video, to an obvious song.
Drawing inspiration from SailorDeath’s Camelot video, I picked the SD segments from the Record of Lodoss War TV series as about the silliest possibility for video source, and the far too obvious song of Peter, Paul, & Mary’s “Puff the Magic Dragon.”
I kind of hamstrung myself, though, since I remembered far more shots of the tiny Shooting Star than there actually being when I started working through the footage. Still, it was a cute video that got a decent reaction from the audience.
The title is a silly Latin joke (a direct translation of the song title), and comes from the working title “Draco, Draconis, Draconem,” which is itself a silly reference to the first Enchanted Forest Chronicles book, where the main character notes at one point that “she’d always been good at declining nouns.”
