This was my first real attempt at a video.

Basically the idea is that the three leading ladies of Eva are being...well...women having a really bad day.  They're kicking stuff, punching stuff, blowing things up with N2 mines...  And yet it's not exactly mindless mecha action either.  We've all had our bad days in which we just do not want to get out of bed and the Eva characters are no exception.  No matter how hard you try, there will just be those days where nothing goes your way.  No diving into their psychological problems or anything complex.  I tried to make it a video that the ordinary person could relate to.

It turned out to be a bit of an experience.  I knew how to use Windows Movie Maker  already but VirtualDubMod? TMPG? 


If it's two things this video taught me were the basic concepts for how to start the project and how to end the project.  I also learned about basic effects and timing.

In general I really have no regrets with this one.  Yeah I have a bit of lip flapping but I can't imagine anything I could have done better at the time given what I knew back then. 

As an end note, I kinda get a kick out of seeing Rei getting angry with the line "I'm gonna make you"  and then letting hell break loose.  I like to show that she is more emotional then one might think.
