The Sea God and The Sky Goddess

When I was in college, our professor asked our class to make a story board based on themes he randomly assigned. So for me, I was given "love story". 

Being a naive girl at that time with la-di-da ideas of true love and love conquers all nonsense (Oh Sherlock, what have you done to me?), I decided to make a love story about a sky goddess and a sea god.

The story was simple: boy meets girl; boy tries to impress girl; embarrassing moment; closure; xoxo; the end. Now that seems like the shortest screen play ever... Should I get a Guinness World Record for it? Hahaha! ^^

So like my Sephiroth tribute, I made this story board into a short film while I was jobless. Not that it helped me look for work but it did keep me sane through those months. Oh! Such dark times... 

Anyway, the visuals are not that good since at that time I just started working on my gestures (Not that I'm actually any better now. O_o). But at least the story-telling does have some redeeming factors... I hope. O_O Damn! I need to remake this. Hahaha!

A long, long time ago... Okay, maybe not that long since that was just barely like 5 years ago... I made a tribute video for one of my fave Final Fantasy VII character of all time, Sephiroth.
Usually girls get all giddy with Cloud Strife; blue eyes, blonde anime hair... Who wouldn't go crazy over that cutie? Apparently, not me... I went for the sexy villain with the badass long, silver locks. Woo-hoo! -^.^-

Looking back, I may have developed a pattern for admiring characters... But I'm a little confused which is more accurate. Hmm...
Anyway, being unemployed (Just graduated and looking for work... It was hell!) I had a lot of time in my hands so I made a short video clip as tribute to Sephiroth

I got the clips from my little brother's movie collection of Advent Children and Crisis Core. He used to be some kind of Final Fantasy VII nut. Me? Well, I wasn't exactly a fan and never played the game, but I did like the movies... Or rather just Sephiroth. Yup! Definitely just Sephiroth

I used the song "Running Up That Hill" by Placebo. At that time, the horror-action movie directed by the Spierig brothers, "Daybreakers", was just being released and that song was used in its trailers. It really has a shadowy, dark aura going on so I thought it was perfect for Sephiroth's villainous yet sexy persona. I just had to say sexy. Hahaha! ^^
