“La La La” Animated Dance Party! (Animated Music Video ****)

I would call this an “Anime Music Video” if the Spongebob clips weren’t in it. But hey! Spongebob DESERVES to be at this party! Check out his dance moves! Plus I loooove Spongebob so I couldn’t not put him in the video! To make this music video I used clips from a variety of anime shows; Haruhi Suzumiya, One Piece, Lucky Star, Gravitation ect. You never really notice how much the Japanese love dancing until you collect all of the clips together. I also notice that they like to do alot of synchronized dancing, Hmmm.

The song used is called “La La La” by a South Korean band named Big Bang. This video didn’t have a particular meaning other than just dance and have fun. This sort of reflects my personality because I love to listen to songs that aren’t focused around deep lyrics, since I’m pretty slow to analyze things for a good number of reasons. This song proves this fact even more because if you listen to the lyrics, 80% of the song is in Korean and I have no idea what they’re saying, besides the little bit that’s in English. (“Everybody get em high! And we wont stop movin movin’!”) I guess this is sort of like the “Gangnam Style” craze where everyone was listening to it, and even played it on the radio, but no one understood what it meant.

I made this in Final Cut Pro, my specialty, and it took about 2 and a half hours to find all the clips, download them, find out where to match them up in the song, and add a few effects such as speed, fade in/fade out, and sepia. This video didn’t really need alot of effects because I found it to be extremely flashy without them. I added a few filter effects to some of the clips as an experiment and it ended up too “sparkly” and explosive. This is usually a good thing, but it’s not really a good thing to overwhelm the audience with seizure-provoking colors. The sepia I added toward the end when the song goes a capella and it’s just the weird guy from One Piece dancing.

I wish I could’ve changed the size of the video, but that would’ve ended up messing up the quality. Ah well, you don’t need good video quality to dance to good music!
