Get Those Dragon Balls, UPDATE: New Video March 18th

Post by Khalid Shahin » Sat Feb 05, 2011 10:21 pm

Get Those Dragon Balls is a comedic video I've been working on my free time here and there for the past two years. And during the project I've learned a lot of video editing techniques. To make the video I used the Funimation's release of Dragon Ball Z, added some music, and edited the scenes to make a new outcome. It starts up kind of slow, but before you know it you'll be in the middle of a fast paced conversation. Watch it on YouTube and enjoy.

Well, that was...... devastatingly inappropriate. :lol:

Very cleverly edited... you can definitely see where all the time went!

That's... Well, that was just about the greatest thing I've ever seen. Bonus points for not being some lame remix of the first English Dragon Ball theme like I was expecting from the title. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go post the link to this fucking everywhere!

Thanks for all the responses. Here are a few stills of the visual edits I have did in the later part of the project; in the video they would be animated, but it's a good way to see some of the stuff that I have changed. On the left is the original and on the right is my edit. In the actual video there might be slightly more editing such as more color correction.

Much more funny then I had expected.

Really got great about halfway through. I laughed out loud at "It'll only last for thirty minutes!" and "You're (your?) nuts!"

Also loved the "But no one can see us" bit with Kaio and the Kaioshin.

If you don't mind me asking, which parts of this video took you the longest to do? I just ask, since I noticed on the comments you said the Vegeta/Goku sex scene only took you a week.

I worked on the Goku/Vegeta conversation, the part from Goku talking to Piccolo about doing it because it would make Gohan happy till King Kai took me about 6-8 months of almost exclusively on it. So that's 6-8 months, Android 18 imaging Goku/Vegeta a week, and everything else in the video about a year and a half. Since the beginning and the ending were being made at the same time, but at the first I didn't know how everything was going to go together I just made everything as a series of clips and tried putting the pieces together later on. The hardest/most tedious part was finding the clips to use in the first place. This video was like using a word bank. I had to think hmmm, I want to connect Piccolo to Krillin how can I do this. Oh I can do this, "Krillin Come Here", Krillin responds "I can't do it.", and Originally I was going to have Piccolo say "Why" but he never really says it clearly so I settled for a "What" instead. I had to watch episodes where I see huge character interaction and wait for a moment that sparks an idea. So to go back to my word box metaphor, you have to think outside the box.

I actually enjoyed this almost as much (if not the amount amount) as the first one!
"How will you and Zarbon ever find Freeza's backside to stick your dicks in" had me absolutely crying.
And that ending... that ending!! You had a room of people laughing so hard, congrats.
