The General Inquiry into the Advanced Study of Modern East Asia

As the semester comes to an end, we have semester finals, but the history class i'm in, called modern east asian studies, doesn't have a test, but instead a final project. Nik and Jordan are in my group and we chose to do a video for the final project.

The video has a 4 minute minimum and we talked our teacher into giving us a higher maximum time limit so we got up to 8 minutes. Even with that, our video is 9.5 minutes long...oh well she won't mind. So we summarized facts about China and Japan in the video and we filmed our video like the jackass movies. We've been shooting all this week and i just finished putting everything together so I thought i would share the video so everyone can see our stuff and what we actually know about asia.

My favorite part is the last samurai part where they're on the scooter. The whole thing took me about 3.5 hours to edit. Basically i sat at the computer and did it all in that time and it came out pretty good.

i'll load it later after fixing it up
update-i revised it. here it is
