Hmmm... Welp, almost every FF8 AMV is a romantic AMV centering on Squall and Rinoa. The concept is a bit old by now. Why not something different?

I'd like to suggest It's the End of the World (As We Know It) by REM, Brackish by Kittie (centering on Rinoa. Be an interesting combination, I think), Evangeline by Bad Religion (again on Rinoa, [there really isn't much focus on the other female characters...]),

Or, if you want to do a romantic AMV, try using songs that haven't been used much, like Closer by Nine Inch Nails (it is a love song, of sorts), or Duvet by Boa (It's the opening to Serial Experiments Lain).

I haven't checked to see if any of these combos has been done before, so you may want to look first.

Good luck.

well back a while ago I asked what anime i should use for the song "What do I have to do" By Stabbing Westward and some one suggested Vampire Hunter D. I'm not doing it so it is far game. :oops:

Indeed, there's a lot of non-Rinoa footage out there... Most of it is machines, but it's there, and workable. Particularly the ending (all three parts), I'd wager.

*checks plotbunny file* I don't have any ideas on backup, except one mildly parodic romance to The Smiths' "Girlfriend in a Coma" which'll never get made at this rate. ;) But that's technically romance.

At any rate, though eight hundred million vids have already been made (including my godawful inclusion), steer clear of "awwww Riona & Squal R SOOOOOOO KAWAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!111" and you're a bit ahead of the pack.

Maybe it's just sleep deprivation, but I'm thinking Geri Halliwel's "It's Raining Men" could make an interesting action video, particularly with the Lunar Cry.

That's different... O_o But then that song is still "attached" in my mind to Celine from SOEX, so. ;) Who knows. FF8 IS the RPG of choice for bishounen-chasers, along with Xenogears (the golden oldie) and to a lesser extent Suikoden II...

Oh wait, the original, that is, Weather Girls. I've never heard any remakes...

you should do a video that focuses on everyone but squall and rinoa focus characters like zell, selphie, or laguna

Problem is, Zell and Selphie have about ten seconds of screen time each. ;) Unless you're going to capture rendered scenes, which could be interesting.

Laguna has a bit more, and that might be doable for a short video...
