Peace of Mind:Inner-Monologue of a Human Named Batou, is the full title for this little piece. I had originally decided to not create this for the 2006 Otakon amv contest because I was supposed to be on staff. However, through a change of heart (which i credit adomX for doing that) I figured this was more important to me.
Well, unfortunately time was not on my side and I only had roughly 2 weeks to create this video. I had a lot of things planned for this amv that didn't pan out due to time constraints. In the end i think I creating a video that is simple in effects but dynamic in emotions.
A character study at heart, this project focuses on the partner and more importantly; companion of the late "Major". Time line-wise i guess you could say that this takes place in between the first and second movie.
As far as the music is considered; i had just seen Requiem for a Dream for the first time and fell in love with the sound track. Yes, I'm well aware that Clint Mansell's comps are an overly used source. (not just in amv's but in motion picture trailers as well). So I bought the Requiem soundtrack and edited together some of my more favorite parts of the composition.
