    I made a music video! It's obviously the first one I ever did, but please let me know what you think of it.
    I used the song Brave Heart, I think it is perfect for Hot Rod. Even if you don't understand Japanese watch the video, the most important lyrics are in english ;) 

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ds86GynuMVI


    also here are the translated lyrics


    If given a second, anyone can give up and run
    So just keep on walking

    There's something only you can do
    So that this blue planet doesn't lose it's light

    Seize the dreams you had!
    Protect your beloved friends!
    You can become stronger
    Unknown power dwells in your heart, when its fire is lit
    Any wish, it's true
    Will surely be granted...show me your brave heart

    Not every day is sunny, so sometimes
    Even though a cold rain is falling, just open your umbrella

    There's no map of how to live, that's why we're free
    You can go anywhere

    Run faster than the wind!
    Aim farther than the skies!
    You can meet a new you
    Unknown courage sleeps in your heart, and when you realize
    The downpour in your heart
    Will surely stop...show me your brave heart

    Seize the bright tomorrow!
    Protect the ones you love!
    You can become stronger
    Break that weak self!
    Destroy the walls blocking you!
    The warm beat of your heart will be your weapon
    Believe in your heart

    Not bad for your first try. The song definately fits the character. Thanks for including the lyrics. What anime is the song originally from btw? Next time you might want to mix up the clips a little more, but since this video was showing Hot Rod's progression to Rodimus, it worked. It takes courage to post your work. Keep it up. And if you're a big Hot Rod fan, please check out my fanfic link below.

    Nice!


    Good to see good ol' Roddy get his dues.


    At the end, though, it may have been better to have the burst of music near the end (which starts when Galvatron's strangling him) to match the first spark of the Matrix at Rodimus Prime's touch, then show bits like the unleashing of the Matrix, the 'Autobots, Transform and Roll Out!' bit, and finish with him looking over the assembled Autobots on Cybertron.

    But that's just me, though.


    EDIT: And that Hot Shot/Rodimus romance clip... Wrong, just wrong. Besides, everyone knows Roddy's eyes are only for Arcee! (well in the G1iverse, perhaps - when she isn't running off with a triple changer with a certain spring in his step...)
