Let me be the first to say I just downloaded it, had no idea what it was going to be like.  Sinatra is brilliant, this is brilliant, and my still at the end was a total surprise and I laughed my ass off when I saw it.

Horah!!!!!!  She likes it!  (does the scuttle dance)

Since you were totally cool with me using your art before, I thought it would be ok.  Your in the creds at the end too!

I saw!  I had no idea it was coming, it was just like a zinger at the very end. It made me laugh so hard I almost woke up all the sleeping people in my house.  I have a liking for Frankie's music and his mushy Italian-ness. 
I guess it was great because I didn't expect it, like when Margie said some guy in a German forum was using my picture as his avatar, I thought that was totally cool. 

What kinda freaked me out about the order though, was that I drew the "Kiss the Bride" picture before Devil's Hands aired, and the last shot in Devil's hands has them in the same configuration.  With their hands touching, Fry on the left Leela on the right... very creepy.

Did you plan it that way so that the shot and the still would meld in like that or was it just a coincidence?

Wow!  This was great, Yorokobi.  What's strange is, I just finished watching Space Cowboys, and they played that same Sinatra version of that song at the end.  Then I hop on here, and you've got it in a video here. Coincidence?

Warner Bros.: Ehhhhh, could be.

That was great, Yorokobi.  Good scene selection, editing and great choice of music. 

I just wonder how Astrud Gilberto's wonderful version of that song would go with the video.

I'm glad everyone is enjoying it!  I too have seen space cowboys, and it was my memory of that with the content of Ep2 that drew the idea togeather in me head I think.

FemJesse: And yes, I deliberately took that last still and you wedding pic and put them togeather.  It was however a last minute thing, I was planning to use a still of Leela in the best "come hither" pose I could find OR the shot of here asleep with "Tale of Coragous Animals" on her face.  Along the same lines as her asleep with the book, I was thinking (briefly) of using the scene of her all slopped up with Buggalo BBQ from TDHAIP.  Somthing comical. 

But as soon as I saw your wedding pic I said "THAT'S IT!".

Very cool vid. I love AMV's and this is a good one. (I was kinda hoping it would be one of the Fly me to the moon from the credits of Neon Genisis Evangelion just for comedy value.)
Just Curious what program do you use to make your AMV's?

And on a similar note I just finished watching your Tenchi AMV. I liked it but you lied on AMV.com youonly put down Tenchi OVA as the source but some of the sceens where from the TV series. Just kidding cool vid. Pity they removed the art section from TMAU I liked your Tenchi art.

(Bows)  Thanks!

The first two vids I did were done with a freeware proggie called Zwei-Stein (some European guys made it, but then never finished it)

Fry me to the Moon was done with SonicFoundry's VideoFactory 2.0  hence the text effects, credits, and various transitions used.

My Tenchi and other art can be found at JoyCrusher's Menagerie

Just gotta say I love the vid again and a little side note to Futurama Scan Art Central a while ago you posted a wallpaper you refered to as a Matrix inspired peice. It was actually inspired by Blade II. The one with Fry all decked out in Leather holding a sword just thought I'd mention it.

Don't remember adding that one myself, so guess I'll have to have words with the others, or maybe nobody realised which is probably the truth.

I just downloaded the WMV version, and it rocked! I love Ol' Blue Eyes, and combining this with Futurama is a stroke of genius.  cool

If someone did a tribute video to Futurama with "My Way" playing, it would be the rockiest thing ever. Not suggesting anything, just stating a fact.

Great cutting between scenes as well, and great selection. Kudos on an allround awesome job. Once I have 2 hours to spare I'll get the MPG-version (now that my memberhip to AMV is finally validated (2 weeks waiting period?).

Can't explain the wait, except I believe it's being run off "the goodness of someones heart".  That can always cause delays.

Especially if all my rave reviews are causing a flood of applications!    smile  Not....

Thanks for the E-applause. 

Oh, and Teral....  Be careful what you wish for....  (gotta find some excuse to justify buying the software!)  hehe


EDIT:  OK I started it last night.  At this point I'm assembling "classic" scenes, well, as many as I have sources for. 

What kind of video did you have in mind?  My take so far is leaning on/focused on the fact the series is over.  Since the song is about someone whose looking back on their life, I'm thinking the video should be from the perspective of "looking back on the series life"

The welcome message said something about wanting to avoid leechers who just signed up to grab a couple of files, without actually interested in supporting the community. I think it's a wise attitude since the bill for bandwidth must be tremendous. I was merely a bit surprised it was 2 weeks, usually it's 4-5 days.

Yeah, that's pretty much my idea too. The way I hear the song, it's a person looking back. He didn't listen to naysayers or took crap from anyone. He did the things he wanted to do, the way he wanted to. As a result he can now look back on a succesful life with no regrets, secure in the knowledge he deserved it all and achieved it all on his own.

After watching "Fry Me To The Moon", I started thinking about "My Way" (since it's Sinatra's trademark song) and how it accurately described Futurama and it's succesful (albeit short) life. Groening didn't listen to other people (FOX) and their stupid advice or people who said it couldn't be done. Now as we look back on Futurama, we see a popular (at least among animationfans) show, who achieved it all on it's own. Matt/David made the show like they wanted it to be (their way), after the success on CN and the DVD sales they know it was due to the quality of the show and not some mediahype/ad blitz.

Well, I hope that was at least somewhat understandable.

BTW, I downloaded the MPG-version: awesome to the max.

Not really Cheeez, I plan on posting on your great rendition of the Futurama theme when you fall off the first page when and if it happens so people who just blink through can hear it. I'm not greedy. I just wish people would post on my art work threads (but that ain't gonna happen)

I think it is a nice gesture to keep this on the first page a little longer for people who don't go past the first page. I know I didn't go past the first page for almost 2 weeks. but if you want people to miss out on a very nice music video that Yorokobi so loveingly spent his time on for the enjoyment of the people, fine

And if we did this for every thread then we'd have problems. Did you care to think about the thread that got knocked off page #1 for this?

The best way to keep a thread alive is to keep adding stuff to it. This may be by adding more videos or something.
