Okay, finally uploading this here! This song seemed so fitting for homestuck and I really am attached to all of these characters, I wanted to contribute something emotional to the fandom to show that so here's what came out of it.
I don't know what else to say besides all of the wonderful feedback I've gotten on tumblr is really touching and it means a lot to me. I wish I knew how to express how much it means to me.
Homestuck is by Andrew Hussie, all credit goes to him for the comic!
Q. What program did you use to make the video?
A. I used Sony Vegas Pro, which doesn't work anymore on my computer.
Q. How did you get the footage from the flashes?
A. I used the trial version of Camtasia and recorded and saved all of the flashes used to my computer. I don't know if there is a more convenient way of getting them, that's just how I did it.
Q. Can I do a cover/live action/collab of some sort for this video?
A. Of course! I'd love to see it, a lot of people have asked but I have yet to see anything come of it.
Q. You did _____'s quirk incorrectly! How could you possibly do that?
A. Trust me, it's brought up a lot (especially with Aradia and Sollux) the QUIRKS ARE RIGHT. I made sure to check and double check before making the video, they are all the right quirks.
Q. Why is ____ in this video and not ____? I think one of them has matured more while the other hasn't matured at all.
A. It's all opinion, it's what I felt was best for the video and I personally think that all of the characters I chose for it have matured. If we have a difference of opinion, that's fine, but I do not regret the characters I included/excluded one bit.
Q. What is the comic/anime/show this video is about?
A. ...I have no idea why you're here, but a LOT of people watch this without knowing what Homestuck is, apparently. It's a web comic that you can read here http://mspaintadventures.com/. My video has a lot of spoilers, though.
Q. What song is this?
A. ALSO NOT SURE HOW SO MANY PEOPLE MISS THIS, but it's "How Far We've Come" by Matchbox 20.
Q. Will you be making a new version of the video once Homestuck ends?
A. I wanted to, originally, and I still think I do, but Sony Vegas does not work for me anymore. Plus, I think it's rather special enough that this video covers everything up to Cascade, there will be plenty of other emotional videos that will be made once Homestuck ends, certainly something fresh would be better!
