There were other commitments, but completion still took longer than I predicted, dare not say I underestimated the amount of animation, transitions and effects in the original, but it was genuinely.. time-consuming.
I mentioned that the video will not be the same but I was so compelled to finish it ended up looking about the same. BUT, even though some of the scenes look identical, the entire movie was made from scratch. Even the lyrics, Kansaiii traced them all individually! So thankful for her help, she was the only person who gave me endless support too!
There is one part where you see me ‘rolling’, I was very reluctant to have it because to be honest, it look extremely comical, but when the song itself is titled Rolling Girl, I don’t think I should challenge that. My favourite scene would have to be 1:59-2:09 of Miku and the guy conversing and eventually coming down to screaming at the top of their lungs. It expresses one of the conflicting emotions she is bearing and him trying to talk her out. This Miku is rather headstrong 😉
It may not be picture-perfect but we put our heart into every bit, hope you appreciate our work ^^
Note: No videography involved, everything was made mostly with stop motion and some burst shots.

Thanks to the schoolers too who helped so much during the shoot and Adrian with his smallest photography workspace! I should put up behind-the-scenes.
