The VG Cats Adaptation With No Name - Christmas Special

2009-12-19 12:15:24 by Omahdon

Nine strips in a single video: that's a new record for me. Admittedly they also happen to be, for the most part, extremely SHORT strips - but hey! I was looking for VG Cats strips with a Christmas-y sort of theme to adapt! Gotta work with what I gots and there weren't too many strips with that sort of theme. In fact, this Christmas Special has about all of them Christmas-y themed VG Cats strips, barring the unfinished series starring Jack Thompson as Scrooge (why I didn't throw it in this special, see "unfinished") and any that Scott may choose to write for Christmas 2009 onwards. Heck, I even threw in a re-make of "#133 - Presents" which I had already done previously. It's like.... all George-Lucas-ified. For your pleasure.

Apart from that, mixing for this special was mostly straightforward. I'm quite happy with the way "#83 - Road Rage" turned out; using the original Unsolved Mysteries theme was D-Mac's suggestion and it turned out really well. The mood and shifts of the music really meshes well the flow of the narration. Of course, D-Mac did the narration as well, so maybe that was all part of his CUNNING PLAN. Who knows?

"#182 - It's The Thought That Counts" had me trying to imitate the way Megaman 3 "power up get!" screen used to shift things around and reveal its text and what not - that probably took more time to set up than everything else in the strip. Oh, and for those of you wondering: Kirbopher was doing the classic Captain N version of Megaman's voice at my request. You know, the midget chain smoker version? That made absolutely no sense for the character, even back then? Good times, good times.

"#264 - Trigger Happy" was also quite interesting to do as it originally had no lines whatsover apart from "BOOMER!" and "Merry Christmas!" so it became adlib city for all the actors/actresses involved. We can get pretty silly. Especially that Edward Bosco fellow. Oh, what merriment we did make!

But the strip I'm most happy about in this special is "#265 - A Magical Wonderland". This was all thanks to the combined efforts of Cody Coleman, Druoxtheshredder and Peter Gresser: Cody for the wonderful Frank Sinatra-styled crooning, Druox for the "Death Metal" Frosty music and voice and Peter Gresser for basically composing a whole new truncated version of "Frosty the Snowman" out of cloth - trying to match the version that Scott used in his strip. The audio mixed together beautifully with hardly any effort at all, and the translation to video was pretty much equally seamless. I love it when everything comes together so.

Anyway, many, many, MANY (many) thanks to all my actors and actresses involved in bringing this special to life. Wow, there sure are a lot of you for this 'ere thang. Sixteen in total and that's not including the joke credits! Thank god I'm not making any more of these! Errrr.... I mean. APART from episode 12. Yes. That is exactly what I mean. Oh and of course, a whole lot of thanks to Scott Ramsoomair for creating VG Cats! Please don't sue me.
