- Jaci Velasquez Just a Prayer Away
This is the Air track for Project Trinity, the third multi-editor project I've participated in.
This was the first time I've used Photoshop to create a small effect in a video. I'm still pretty new with the program, and it doesn't look like much, but I like to think it's a small step towards improving my editing skills (or lack there of).
The anime/song combo actually worked out pretty well, to my surprise. I was originally planning to use "Crystal Clear", but the lyrics weren't very well suited to the theme of this project. Honestly, it took forever to find the right song. I thought I had a bunch of Christian CDs buried away somewhere, but unfortunately, they were all burned MP3s. I ended up buying the song from iTunes.
It was a little difficult to chose appropriate scenes to work with the lyrics, simply because this is a Christian-themed project. My track is centered around Misuzu and Yukito, naturally, and it may appear more sentimental than anything. The lyrics go "You're just a prayer away, my strength is in my faith, I'm never alone..." etc, so while the video pairs the two main characters, I tried to use the right scenes to visualize both themes.
I have recently discovered radial blurs (and have learned that they are quite amusing), and used them with glows and other simple but pretty effects. Because the song is a ballad, there isn't any intense action sycnage - just enough to make it work, I guess.
That said, I suggest you go watch the whole project. Now ;P
