I suppose it was inevitable that I’d mix two of my favorite things together. This brilliant animated short film by Paul “Otaking” Johnson features an animation style reminiscent of cartoons from the 80’s and 90’s. It’s an homage to the TIE Fighter video game from 1994. I set it to Dream Theater because their music seems perfectly suited for animation, particularly from that era.

I’ve already used this video before, but the music was distinctly different. After I found this Celldweller track, I couldn’t resist. The sudden changes in speed and perspective beg for a song that changes so drastically, which is one of the strengths of dubstep-style music. Plus, this kind of song seems pretty appropriate to highlight a badass woman destroying a building-sized demon.
This is only a proof of concept, not a finished video. It needs a lot of additional editing and effects.
I’m not sure what inspired this, but once the idea was in my head, I had to try it out. After a couple of hours of editing, it suddenly became apparent that the concept could work. I keep coming back to it, tweaking it, then quietly replacing the older versions online. (Like I do with all of my videos.) The trick now is to hide the fact that she’s singing without completely destroying the edit.
Here’s your introduction to destruction…
This video was based on a short film that Rob Zombie created for Assassin’s Creed Unity, a video game that focuses on the French revolution. I combined it with a White Zombie remix by Charlie Clouser for obvious reasons. You almost forget the two weren’t made for each other.
Warning: This video has blood, violence, partial nudity, a redhead, and an evil witch. ‘Tis not for the faint of heart.
