Want an example of how to write female characters? Look no further than Studio Ghibli! These three are my faves (though that list should include Arriety (sp)) but I don't own that DVD yet. Plus, I don't normally like "Power Ballads", but this one is so happy :) And I got to try an effect with my Sony Vegas that I hadn't used yet, with decent results.
Ps. the movies and music are property of their respective owners. I am not now, nor will I ever be, making money from this video.
