I started getting serious about AMV's around the time I made this.It is my first attempt at re-making an AMV using software other than WMM... and comparing the two, I'll never go back. Yes I know it's very amateur-ish, and I'm making a bigger deal out of it than needed with the banner and all... but I really learned a lot making this video, so it means something to me.
Someone once asked me what sort of meaning The Human Equation has:
I totally stole the title from the wicked album by Ayreon of the same name, but it totally fits... because ...well...
This video tries to explore the characteristics that make us human [hence the title]; I don't think anyone can come up with a definitive answer-- and I may have answered nothing... but all Naruto characters go through their hardships, and all deal with them in their own different ways. Such disparity exists among the results [ie. Gaara vs Lee vs Naruto vs Sasuke] that we wonder if any standard commonality exists at all. Yet disregarding the fact that this is fiction, we can identify with the humanity present in each individual.
