This video is a perfect example of an idea starting off with the song, which personally I think is the best way to approach an AMV. I find that having a song and then finding an anime to fit is a much more fruitful method than having an anime and finding a song to fit. In this case, I had been listening to the Veneer album by José González, and thusly fell in love with the song Heartbeats. It was not long after that I began seeing this video playing out in my head. I had actually originally wanted to a kind of serene/sentimental/drama'y Azumanga Daioh video, but that was before I really began paying attention the lyrics and thusly there's no way it would've worked.
REC is a relatively new show that really hasn't received too much attention. It's a wonderfully sweet and short show (10 half-length episodes. It can easily be watched in under 2 hours. So if this video makes you want to the show, I am glad. It's such a wonderful show. The characters are very likable and you begin to sympathize with them right off the bat.
