Unless you really have an urge to see something that sucks.

A man with dreams:
dreams of love, dreams of flight.
A man tormented by life:
rejection, argument, the constant threat of death.
A man in hell.
Those were the three principles that prompted the production of this video.
I made this video as a reflection of my mental state, so I doubt anybody else will understand it, much less like it, and I'm sure that the opinion scores will reflect the inevitable confusion.
The soundtrack for this video was originally an Impulse Tracker music module by Nightbeat.
Scenes with faded color represent reality; scenes in full color represent dreams.
There's a lot more to say about the digital effect work, reanimation work, # hours spent, storyline, and so on, but, after re-writing this video description several times, I've given up on trying to concisely articulate it all. I can't really describe this video without insulting someone or becoming totally incoherent.
It's safe to say that I made this video for me. It's just up here because it is.
I don't like it. I doubt anybody else will.
(Update) As an XViD test, I re-encoded this from the QuickTime RGB master. I also did denoising and edge sharpening. This should do a semi-decent job of fixing one of the two major problems with this video, which is the quality. The other is the video itself.
I do not, and cannot, claim any ownership to this AMV. However, I encourage anyone who might be interested in redistributing, reworking, or really doing whatever to this video to do so. I won't do anything.
