:up: A shinkai movie that doesn't involve the characters being far apart?!

Children Who Chase Lost Voices falls under that category. If anything I think this movie is a big throwback to his old formula of slightly hokey straight people romance.

As for the AMV itself: Not bad, although I would imagine I'm only watching it because there hasn't been a deluge of fantastic Garden of Words AMVs yet, considering your song choice. On a technical note, I saw some strange frame blending (couldn't tell if it was just slow-downs gone awry or a more serious framerate problem; MediaInfo flags the video as 24fps which is almost correct) and surprisingly poor compression artifacts, which was a little disappointing considering the astounding RAW quality available to us.

Still, despite the flaws, it's very clear to me that you made this video in earnest and put a lot of thought behind it.

Hey thanks. Honestly I'm not sure how quality degradation occurred. My original source was definitely better than that. Even the credits had banding on my original lossless render. My only guess at this point is my outdated editor or maybe even codecs.

Beautiful, reminds me something.
I've got a dream when the darkness is over
We'll be lyin' in the rays of the sun
But it's only a dream and tonight is for real
You'll never know what it means
But you'll know how it feels

I enjoyed this! :up: The anime and song combo were perfect, and it was really well edited overall. My only issue is that, as xexyzl noted, the video quality could have been better, but that's a minor complaint.
