はじめての経験 (Dance Cover) Trivia

– I first starting looking at this dance in… either late May or early June. O__O I had wanted to get it out earlier, but I never really had time to learn/practice. orz

– I was despairing over what to wear for the backup part(s) for the longest time, but I just happened to find a top that was similar in style and color (though it’s more gold than yellow… orz), so I bought that. I don’t usually buy clothes for my dances, but I’ve always liked peasant tops anyway. (It comes in three more colors… I’ve been fighting the urge to collect them all. XDD) Also, that top is size XS, but I still had to wear another shirt under it because it was kind of loose. Bah. (^_^”)>

– This video was absolutely no fun to edit. (-_-“) I had only learned Kanon’s part originally, so, when I filmed Saki’s part, my timing wasn’t quite right for the verse movements. I didn’t want to redo it, because the lighting had been perfect, and I hadn’t crossed the center line, so I ended up editing a bunch of little clips to try to fix the timing for the one side. (This was just for the first verse.) Besides that, the timing for the entire video just did not want to work. I had to render it four or five times before it finally turned out okay.

– This is the first split-screened video that I didn’t use my old laptop to edit; because the lighting was so consistent and because I stayed far enough away from the center (for the most part), I was able to use the split screening transition on my current laptop. The difference is that, with my old computer, there is an option for a soft split line (that is, the videos sort of fade into each other on the line) while my current computer only has a hard split line, which I don’t usually like the look of.

– I originally filmed movements for all six backup parts to use during the verses, but fading from one part to the next so quickly had an almost glitchy effect that I didn’t particularly like. =/ Instead, I opted for only two parts… with long, awkward pauses between moves. orz

– I didn’t memorize all of the lyrics, so I wasn’t able to lipsync to the entire song. Sorry! m(_ _)m

– My eyes were twitching like crazy while I did this dance. You know… that kind of twitch when there’s a really bright light, and you’re trying to keep your eyes open while your brain is saying, “SQUINT!” … Then again, I did have those daylight lamps on, so that might have been the case. XDD

– I filmed this at something o’clock in the morning on July 27th. I was going to film it on the 26th (because it was my day off), but I was asked if I could help out at work, so I did. When I got home, my mom suggested that I go to sleep right away so I could get up early and film the dance before I went to work, but I thought I’d have an easier time staying up later and filming instead of waking up early (I’m more of a night owl), so that’s what I did.

– I was rather pleased with how the fades from backup to main turned out. ^_^

– Oh my goodness, I just realized I made a really obvious mistake. I made a heart instead of putting my hands on my chest during the second verse. And the line was even “watashi”… orz Sorry, everyone! m(_ _)m Maybe I should quit before I ruin entire choreographies. T_T Wow, do I ever feel stupid…

I suppose that’s all~. Sorry for making you wait so long for a new dance… and then uploading something as not-so-great as this. orz Oh, and, just so you know, this isn’t my “2,000,000+ views” celebratory video; I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do for that. orz

    I like your dance video even know I had to rewind a couple of times cuz I keep close my eyes. Not that it was boring its because I did a favor for my boss which turned out being a 12hr round trip to pick up a load. Which I left late evening and got back early mornin and then I went horseback riding scent it was cool this mornin with my sister ,aunt and their friends which I didn’t get home till 4pm. I’m tryin to keep awake so I can get back on my sleeptime.
    You should’t be hard on yourself when u make a mistake Nobody perfect. In my opinon it look alright but I’m going to watch it again tomorow when I’ve had sleep.

      Wow, that sounds very tiring! I mess up my sleeping schedule all the time, and it usually takes a long time for me to get it back. (^_^”)> Thank you for watching and writing~.
