Wow theres so much to say about this AMV. I guess I should start from the beginning. I was inspiried to make this amv from a song by Thousand Foot Krutch, whom I never even heard of untill I saw the Premonition Studios - Phenomenon (Open Your Soul) Music video. At first I was like, Christian rock band? This is really gonna suck, but I found I really liked the song. After searching for other songs by the band, I came across Rawk fist and the rest is history. (Phenomenon kicks much ass by the way, if you havent seen it yet.)
Anywho, this amv is about Rock Lee's fight with Garaa with a little twist. It covers some of the training Lee went through to become stronger in little flashback sequences, but after the first sequence (featuring Lee training with Neji), Lee starts to see Neji's face in Garaa's sand. At first he's surprised to see his rival, then he becomes furious and pounds at the sand to no avail. Afterwards as the sand chases him, he becomes frightened of the prospect of losing to Neji once again, causing him to slip and fall. Lee recalls falling to the ground, crying, and then getting back up to his feet in his second flashback training sequence (that this time, involves Gai sensei). Lee snaps out of his frightened state and upon hearing Gai's confirmation to "Throw up your Rock Fist!", Lee regains his resovle, drops the weights on his legs, and lets loose an onslought of attacks on not only Garaa, but the images of Neji that haunt Lee's mind within the sand.
The endings a little weak in my opinion, but after the video won first place for Best Action at Nekocon 9 this past weekend, I decided to leave it in its intirety. This video is viewed best on my computer at 2 times normal size. Might look good for you too.
Now its Thank You time!
I would like to thank the staff at Nekocon for putting on one helluva con this year,
to Eric "Elvis" Ramos for not only accpeting my vid into the contest at the last minute, but converting it into the right format as well. Can't thank you enough for that Elvis!
And last but not least I'd like to thank my brother for reviewing my amv months ago, telling me which scenes sucked or could be improved, and helping me create a better one. Thanks B.B.!
