恋ING (Surimuchan PV) Trivia

– The story for this PV? Umm… Well, I was trying to have the camera be sort of from the guy’s point of view, and… that’s about it. orz Honestly, I’m so bad at coming up with original PV concepts, so I usually just take the lyrics literally.

– Unlike my other two PVs, I didn’t have a storyboard for this one. I just took four to eight lines of the song at a time and tried to think of scenes that would go with them.

– The original concept was that I was supposed to notice the guy walking around (just wandering aimlessly, I guess XDD) and then bring him over to sit down in a couple of lawn chairs to watch the birds and squirrels. XDD Unfortunately, it would have taken too long to try to get video of birds or squirrels, so I changed the concept to fit our weird weather.

– Because my mom is only a few inches taller than me, she was holding the camera up further. This resulted in a few bloopers, because she had to keep the camera at the same height while trying to turn realistically. She would usually turn rather slowly, and I’d start laughing. XD

– The coat that was handed to me is my brother’s.

– I was actually freezing for the filming of the first few scenes, and I kept laughing so I would never get to the scene where I got the coat. XD By the time I finally got it, we had to go inside for a while to warm up.

– I filmed the outdoor scenes when it snowed on April 27th (this was the “secret something” that I talked about in that vlog).

– I don’t like acting super-cutesy, which is why this PV (as well as “好きな先輩”) was so hard for me to film. I probably come off as being too cold (ahaha, that works on two levels).

– I tried filming the dance parts last Saturday, but, not only did I keep messing up (I don’t understand how; the dance is so easy o_O), I was having trouble staying in the designated thirds for each part.

– I was going to edit the dance portions the same way I did the editing for “MY BOY,” but I managed to stay mostly in my area for each dance. The left arm of Ai-chan’s part and the right arm of Eri’s part did get cut off a few times. orz

– I reorganized a few parts of the dance–including the opening moves and the ending moves–to fit with what I wanted.

– My old computer is, by the way, still not working completely, because I can’t access the Internet, but that’s fine because it’s going to quit working completely soon (it’s rather old). I’m just going to use it for Photoshop and the XP version of Windows Movie Maker, so I’ll at least be able to split screen my “Bad Apple!!” dance cover (I hope).

– At first, I had the font for the credits match the font for the title, but, when I published the movie, some of the letters were missing from the credits. o_o So, I had to change the font and publish it again. (^_^”)>

That’s all~. I hope the video wasn’t too disappointing… orz I’ll upload a vlog after a little while. ^_^

—– I would just like to thank all of you, my dear viewers/readers, once again for all of your support~. It’s hard for me to believe that I’ve been on YouTube for eighteen months… and that I’ve uploaded one-hundred videos… and that I have almost 2,000 subscribers… and that I actually have fans (honestly, I thought the only fans I would ever have would be the ones that cool me down in the summer XD)…

Your kind words of encouragement and praise are truly a blessing. Thank you, everyone! ^_^ —–
