    I started this amv as soon as I got After Effects and being so eager to try it out I had to create something with it. I used quite a few animes for this video and the only source which disappointed is Naruto, it just doesn't look as good as everything else, maybe because of bad filtering on my part. I had a folder with 170 gb of lagarith files which the majority I didn't use, it's worth a mention though since it took so long to encode them all.

    I actually had a totally different song and different mood for the video to start of with, but then my brother suggested I use this song which I instantly fell in love with, great vocals and lyrics, it's really something underrated, anyway.

    The story is about Ura (Pale Cocoon) who is searching for life on other planets. As we see at the beginning of the video an 'object' hits the water (sent by Ura) which Sora runs towards, we later find out many of the 'objects' have 'landed' in other places too. And so Ura tells the story.

    Programs Used:
    After Effects 7.0 (for some part here and there)
    Sony Vegas 7.0
    Amvapp (a bit of all the software)

    The x.264 encode is on LOCAL download which requires you to have VLC or CCCP in order to play it.
    Please download the .mp4 unless your CPU can't handle it because the quality is a lot better.

    Hopefully, next time ill get some people to beta test my next amvs. Any quick comments or opinions are greatly appreciated. For now, enjoy.

    Here are the lyrics:

    I am a question to the world,
    Not an answer to be heard.
    All a moment that's held in your arms.
    And what do you think you'd ever say?
    I won't listen anywayÖ
    You don't know me,
    And Iíll never be what you want me to be.

    And what do you think you'd understand?
    I'm a boy, no, I'm a man..
    You can take me and throw me away.
    And how can you learn what's never shown?
    Yeah, you stand here on your own.
    They don't know me 'cause I'm not here.

    And I want a moment to be real,
    Wanna touch things I don't feel,
    Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
    And how can the world want me to change,
    Theyíre the ones that stay the same.
    The donít know me,
    'Cause Iím not here.

    And you see the things they never see
    All you wanted, I could be
    Now you know me, and I'm not afraid
    And I wanna tell you who I am
    Can you help me be a man?
    They can break me
    As long as I know who I am

    And I want a moment to be real,
    Wanna touch things I don't feel,
    Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
    And how can the world want me to change,
    Theyíre the ones that stay the same.
    They canít see me,
    But Iím still here.

    They canít tell me who to be,
    ĎCause Iím not what they see.
    And the world is still sleepiní,
    While I keep on dreaminí for me.
    And their words are just whispers
    And lies that Iíll never believe.

    And I want a moment to be real,
    Wanna touch things I don't feel,
    Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
    And how can they say I never change
    Theyíre the ones that stay the same.
    Iím the one now,
    ĎCause Iím still here.

    Iím the one,
    ĎCause Iím still here.
    Iím still here.
    Iím still here.
    Iím still here.
