Another week, another video. I love Darker Than Black and as soon as I started watching it I wanted to make a video using it. It may seem that I'm obsessed with Editors, as I've now used two of their songs for AMVs, but I just thought this song fit perfectly, and I'm pleased with the final result.
I'm pleased to say I took more time with this video than I have with some of my other recent efforts, and I hope it shows. About halfway through I realized that I didn't like the timing in most of what came before, so I redid that, and then I realized I didn't like the speed-up effect in another clip, and then I decided I wanted different footage entirely in another segment...this went on for a while, until you have what you see here. There are a lot of digital effects in this video, but the one I'm happiest about is the rain effect, which I finally got a chance to put to good use.
As for the concept of this video, I would say that it's half about Hei, who is a great character, and half about the women he encounters and how they wind up with unenviable fates. Spoiler alert through episode 6 of the anime. Thanks for watching and comments are appreciated.
