My most popular video to date.

This is really where my skills were starting to be refined. The intro is just right, the fights scenes are perfectly synced to the music, the ending is a perfect conclusion.

Some interesting points about this video:

  • This is the first time I ever altered the speed of the video to match the musics tempo.
  • I would later use this movie again for Triumph.
  • No titles are included in the video.

Like a band that gets sick of playing their greatest hit, I have seen this video so many times I cannot watch it anymore.

There is a very bad cut included where an unwanted few frames can be seen. This makes me cringe.

This video is the true first Master Iller video. When I started making these, this was the movie I had in mind first. The reason I waited to make this after “Got’s Like Come on Thru” was because I wasn’t confident in my editing skills yet. Obviously, it’s a good thing I waited. Master Killer is probably the greatest Kung Fu movie ever made inspiring millions. Maybe even one of the greatest films of all time. This again was made with Windows Movie Maker.

Some interesting points about this video:

  • The green line at the bottom of the video wasn’t there when it was first uploaded. I don’t know why that suddenly appeared or when.
  • The close up of Gordon Liu’s eyes contain the sound from the movie, it’s the only sound included from the film until we get to the main fight.
  • I included the Shaw Brothers intro to the end of the video. This was to pay respect to the film studio that has provided so much great entertainment. In later videos, showing the Shaw Bros. logo became a tradition but is meant as a call back to this video.

Over all I am extremely happy with this video. Still one of my favorites in my collection. There is however one bad cut, but is barely noticeable to even me sometimes, so I don’t care to much.

Here it is in all of its glory. The very first Master Iller video. Looking back on this video is cringy for me mostly due to the poor quality.

This was made with Windows Movie Maker which was an obvious poor choice. I have always been tempted to take this out of my playlist but I think it has become a relic in the the Master Iller world. A true part of history, so it stays.

Interesting points about this video:

  • In the beginning of the video the words “Schwilly Fu presents” come on the screen. This was made before I had come up with the name ‘Master Iller’. Schwilly Fu was in some ways the prototype for Master Iller.
  • I had originally named this video “Master Iller – Wu-tang Clan – Shaolin Temple” Despite it not actually being a wu-tang song. Also, that title format was later changed in my other videos but was left on this one until the writing of this post.

Besides a few bad cuts and the poor quality, I am relatively happy with it. I have often thought about doing a complete remake updating it but I dont think that’s gonna happen, who knows.

 

Let me try this again

Let me try this again

I have tried many times in the past to get this site exactly the way I want it. I am trying again with some new ideas. I plan on expanding this sites content with ideas from my personal life, not just the persona I have create for my Master Iller videos.

I also realize it has been a very long time since I have last made a music video. For that I apologize. Getting this site in shape is going to hopefully motivate me. I have always had problems getting anything done with a mess around me. For example, I could not begin working on this website until I had the room I am working in perfectly clean and the way I wanted it.

I doubt anyone still comes to this site, and that’s understandable. I don’t really care if no one ever comes to this site ever again. I just want to complete it and get into the routine of creating content again.

I have lot of ideas, if anyone cares. Please check back regularly.
