  • Comments: I mostly made this video because I really like this song. I hadn't watched Last Exile yet when I first thought about making a video to the song, but I had seen AMVs to the show and I thought all of the flying scenes really fit with the choruses. So I watched it and was happy to see that a lot of the scenes worked really well for what I wanted to do. :)

    This project actually went along pretty quickly. I think it might've been because the video just came together so easily. Last Exile had a lot of good scenes to work with, and they all just seemed to fit into the song so well. So I met with little resistance. ;) I mostly focused on scene selection, flow, and timing the scenes, but I did also do some effects to enhance the video at some parts. Mostly I used my usual brightness/contrast flashes, blurs, diffuse glows, and various other effects. And I finally learned how to easily make feathers in Premiere, so I used quite a few of those. ^_~

    In general, I followed the story line in Last Exile, but I focused on about five key characters and changed some events around. The theme of the video is essentially about Claus's love of flying and his ability to "rise above" hardships. My goal with this video was to make it pretty, and to keep it fast-paced and interesting.

    Lyrics:


    Have you found this secret island
    Somewhere you can hide away
    Somewhere you can wait in silence
    Just the breaking of the waves

    When the sky is falling
    This is where I go

    Won't You let me fly, won't You let me fly
    And I'll wait in the sunlight silence
    And I'm never coming back again

    See the yellow sunlight shining
    Through the window of your soul
    And you think that you're the only one
    Who has nowhere left to go

    When your sky is falling
    This is where you go

    Won't You let me fly, won't You let me fly
    And I'll wait in the sunlight silence
    And I'm never coming back again

    When all the mountains seem too high
    And you've lost the strength to climb
    You see the past in all its pain
    And now the future comes again
    I feel the blood running through my veins

    Won't You let me fly, won't You let me fly
    And I'll wait in the sunlight silence
    With the stars

    Won't You let me fly, won't You let me fly
    The mountains climb, the past, the pain
    The future comes out here again
    But I'm never going back, never going back

    Time Spent: about 40 hours in a month and a half
    Programs Used: Adobe Premiere 6.0, Adobe Photoshop 5.0

    Enjoy. ^_~
