    *** Semi-finalist for VCAs 2006 - Category "Best First Video" ***

    ---------------------- Notes -----------------------

    The video is a 'reassumed/summary' of the Evangelion's The End film, so
    all the images in the AMV are exposed in the (almost) same sequence from the film.

    I started this project in november 2005, so in two month (approximately 100 hours) i study After Effects 6.5 and create this video.
    It was my first experience with AMV and After Effects, but i'm a code developer and i already know concepts like 'keyframes','layers' etc, so i understand quickly how this software works.

    In the first pre-release, the video had many effects on it, but before the official release i removed many of the effects to create a more 'clean' videos, but i don't remove the subtitles. This was a wrong choice....

    In march 2006, i re-render the video without subtitles and better quality (with some encoding tips from my friend rei.andrea), available as 'direct link'.

    Here you can download the jpeg of the mosaic used in the intro, it's a mosaic of Rei and Eva01, made with all frames of the films 'The End Of Evangelion' with AndreaMosaic free software.

    Now the day has come
    We are forsaken this time

    We lived our lives in our paradise,
    As gods we shaped the world around
    No borderlines we'd stay behind,
    Though balance is something fragile

    While we thought we were gaining,
    We would turn back the tide, it still slips away
    Our time has run out, our future has died,
    There's no more escape

    Now the day has come,
    We are forsaken,
    There's no time anymore
    Life will pass us by,
    We are forsaken,
    We're the last of our kind

    The sacrifice was much too high,
    Our greed just made us all go blind
    We tried to hide what we fared inside
    Today is the end of tomorrow

    As the sea started rising,
    The land that we'd conquered just washed away
    Although we all have tried to turn back the tide,
    It was all in vain

    Now the day has come,
    We are forsaken,
    There's no time anymore
    Life will pass us by,
    We are forsaken,
    Only ruins stay behind

    Now the day has come
    We are forsaken this time

    Now the day has come,
    We are forsaken,
    There's no time anymore

    Now the day has come
    The day has come
    The day has come

    E' arrivato il giorno
    in cui saremo dimenticati

    Abbiamo vissuto le nostre vite nel nostro paradiso
    Come Dei modellammo il nostro mondo
    Nessun confine da rispettare
    Bench l'equilibrio fosse fragile

    Volevamo risalire la corrente
    Ma mentre pensavamo di guadagnarci essa lentamente scivola via
    Il nostro tempo finito, il nostro futuro morto
    Non c' via di salvezza

    E' arrivato il giorno
    In cui saremo dimenticati
    Non c' pi tempo ormai
    La vita trascorsa
    Ci hanno dimenticato
    Siamo gli ultimi del nostro genere

    Il sacrificio stato troppo alto
    Fummo accecati dalla nostra avarizia
    Abbiamo cercato di nascondere ci che temevamo
    Oggi la fine del domani

    Il mare si innalzato
    La terra che avevamo conquistato stata spazzata via
    Anche se tutti abbiamo provato a girare indietro la marea
    Tutto stato vano

    E' arrivato il giorno
    in cui saremo dimenticati
    Non c' pi tempo ormai
    La vita trascorsa
    Ci hanno dimenticato
    Solo rovine alle nostre spalle

    E' arrivato il giorno
    Siamo stati abbandonati questa volta

    E' arrivato il giorno
    in cui saremo dimenticati
    Non c' pi tempo ormai

    Ora il giorno arrivato
    Il giorno arrivato
    Il giorno arrivato
