    Perfect Blue is the story of a pop idol who quits her band to pursue fame as an actress, and lands a small part in a TV crime show. When she is pursued by a cyberstalker and a doppelganger, she starts to confuse the show's plot with reality.

    I was originally going to use NIN's "Only" for this project ("There is no you, there is only me!"), but I decided that Duran Duran's early single fit well with the mixture of glamour, sleaze and voyeurism that permeates the anime.

    This is the first time I've used a lot of effects in an AMV. Premiere had a fit a couple of times, but it came out OK in the end.

    This is presented in 2:1 widescreen. My Perfect Blue DVD is letterbox widescreen (not anamorphic), so I had to crop the edges after ripping it, and the result was roughly 2:1.

    See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
    Heads turning as the lights flashing out it's so bright
    Then walk right out to the fourline track
    There's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
    And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine

    Girls on film, girls on film, girls on film, girls on film

    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    In miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
    The diving man's coming up for air cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
    And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

    Girls on film (two minutes later), girls on film
    Girls on film (got your picture), girls on film

    Wider baby smiling you just made a million
    Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
    Take one last glimpse into the night I'm touching close I'm holding bright, holding tight
    Give me shudders in a whisper take me up till I'm shooting a star

    Girls on film (she's more than a lady), girls on film
    Girls on film (two minutes later), girls on film
    Girls on film (see you together), girls on film
    Girls on film (see you later), girls on film
    Girls on film (what ya doing), girls on film
