Hi, everyone! As the titles implies, I am pleased to announce that I have begun subbing the NOWNESS in Japan concert! I mentioned that I had some concerns in my previous subbed video thread, but the quick responses that I saw gave me the motivation that I needed to start this project!
Now, there are some things with this project that I feel that it's right for me to address to everyone. One is that this will actually be my first project that I will be doing without a Chinese subbed video as my main source for translation, meaning I am doing all the translations (for the dialogues) based on my own experiences with Japanese (which started because I wanted to understand BoA's Japanese music lol). Please rest assure that I do know what I'm translating (for the most part) because I have taken four years of Japanese in college and even earned a certificate that allows me to work in Japan (if I wanted to). Though of course, my Japanese still isn't perfect, so there may be parts that will be slightly harder to translate. So if any translations turned out weird in the end, please understand that I tried my best in translating lol.
The next thing I want to address is the file size. I mentioned in the other thread that the file I have is already 9.3gb, so the final hardsubbed video might be over 10gb. If everyone is fine with that, I don't mind working with what I already have. But if anyone thinks that is too large, I would like to ask if anyone knows where I might find a smaller version or if anyone can help me make a smaller version. In the meantime though, I will be subbing with the large file that I already have.
Last thing is something fun that I've always wanted to try is karaoke style subbing. I have never actually done this before, and I feel that it's appropriate for this project. This will definitely take some time for me to work on, so I plan on making two releases: a first release with just what BoA says to the audience and a second release with the karaoke included too!
I don't want to overhype this project because that will only increase the pressure on me lol, but please do anticipate for when this project will be completed, and I will work towards completing this project in a timely fashion
