Not a franchise to do things in half measures, Final Fantasy has unveiled a fan-orientated video project as part of their 30th anniversary celebrations.
Over the past three decades, the series has well established itself as iconic, assisted by a dedicated fanbase that they now want join forces with for a tribute video.
The project revolves around Final Fantasy’s emotional theme song – developed by series composer Nobuo Uematsu – with fans encouraged to remake and rearrange the song and upload it to YouTube for potential inclusion in the 30th Anniversary Fan Tribute Video.
If you’re not musically inclined, you can still submit a video that involves drawings, paintings, sculptures, crochets, dancing or animations as long as it’s set to the main theme, available via the tribute site.
“I want to see [fans] freely use their own feelings and instincts remake and rearrange it for themselves,” Uematsu said.
“Whether that be in the form of making it so that it’s more expressive, or develop the sense of lyricism that the track has, or whether you go completely the other way and create something I didn’t expect.”
Submissions close October 30 and up to 30 videos will be selected to feature.
Check out the website for more info and the below video where Uematsu describes the importance of the theme.
