  • Comments: When I First Saw Full Metal Panic, I knew I wanted to make a MV with it. The only thing I didn't know was the song I was going to use. I've looked through a few of my albums, Our Lady Peace, A Perfect Circle, Nightwish, but I didn't really think they would fit real well. Except for a few songs of Nightwish, but I didn't go with these because I didn't want it to be a clone of Rubyeye's ShellShock. When looking tv one Wednesday night I heard the song 30 Seconds to Mars - Capricorn. when I heard this song I went looking for the Album Straight Away. And when I heard the song Edge of the Earth I Finally Knew my search for a good song for my next mv was over.

    Shortly after that I started editing, I tried to use some effects I learned out of my last mv and Perfect them. For example the white flashes, I used these to bring out the best of the Drum roles. I didn't make these Flashes to Bright, we don't want anyone running and screaming out of a con Because the saw my mv, now don't we :D. In some scenes I chose to use Black Flashes instead of White because they would fit better, but you’ll see that when watching it for your self.

    When I had done about 1 and a half minutes of my mv disaster stroke, and my monitor blew up. While waiting for a new one I had to do with a 15 inch which Letter boxed to about 13 “ and I couldn't change it up. So while I had this puny thing I didn’t really feel like editing :p. So I had a little break here. When I got my new 17 “ Samsung SyncMaster I was ready to start again, And with the new speakers I bought with it I could hear about every bass in the song so Editing was no problem anymore.

    On a few spots in the mv I tried to bring a little rest in all the action, so you’ll have a little breather every once and a while.

    One thing that gave me a few headaches where some subtitles I had to get rid off. The Subtitles were Located here: 1:21 and here: 2:44. I thought to do it the proper way and export all the frames and get rid of them manually by editing each frame, I had to edit about 90 pics (HELL) but when I was finished I was really happy with the results, I can’t see a thing, you?

    A thing I would like to point out is 3:55. Here I tried to bring forth is the ‘Love/Hate Relationship’ Sagara Sousuke and Kaname Chidori have, I hope this came Through well.

    I also tried another thing that's quite new to me, I used both normal and text based timing. I think both are vital for a good mv and since I’ve only done real timing before and not much text based, I tried to pound this in my head as much as I can so it will come naturally in next mvs. I think I got the hang of it now so expect more of that in Future Mvs.

    When I was about half way through my mv I ‘Discovered’ a new neat little effect for my self. Negative Image. I knew before this it could be done, but what I found out is if you use these in flashes, just like the white flash thing I was talking about, And you Combine these 2 you can really have good results.

    When I was finished editing , just before christmas, I tried to put my mv online on Christmas day, but due to some problems with encoding I ended off encoding the darn thing about 10 times, each time a new problem exposed itself.
    Each time lasted about 2 hours so you do the math why I couldn’t release it on Christmas day :p

    The Programs I used were pretty standard:
    Adobe Premiere 6.5
    Paint Shop Pro 7
    VirtualDubAVS

    (I would also Like to thank AbsoluteDestiny & ErMaC for their Great Guides they made, They really helped me to get the best out my Fansub Footage, Thx Guys)

    Lyrics:

    30 SECONDS TO MARS

    "Edge Of The Earth"

    You know enough to know the way
    Six billion people just one name (I found)
    I found tomorrow in today
    Apocalyptic and insane, my dreams will never change
    You wanna be the one in control
    You wanna be the one who's alive
    You wanna be the one who gets old
    It's not a matter of luck, it's just a matter of time

    Stand out on the edge of the earth

    Stand out on the edge of the earth
    Dive into the center of fame
    Walk right inside of the gun
    Look into the new future's face

    I know you know enough to say
    I know you know enough to play a game

    You wanna be the one in control
    You wanna be the one who's alive
    You wanna be the one who gets old
    It's not a matter of luck, it's just a matter of time

    Stand out on the edge of the earth
    Dive into the center of fame
    Walk right inside of the gun
    Look into the new future's face

    Stand out on the edge of the earth
    Dive into the center of fame
    Walk right inside of the gun
    Look into the new future's face

    (Stand out on the edge of the earth)

    Stand out on the edge of the earth
    Stand out on the edge of the earth
    (Look into the new future's face)
    Stand out on the edge of the earth
    Dive into the center of fate
    Walk right inside of the gun
    Look into the new future's face
