    The Title
    It comes from -of course- the Anime (APPLESEED) and also the name of the chosen song Kurenai which designs a sort of deep red in Japanese.

    The Song & the Band
    Kurenai from the Japanese Band X-JAPAN.
    I really love this group, I'm a big fan and if I had to create only one AMV it had to be on an X-Japan's song. I love a lot of their songs which mixed balads and hard-rock : Kurenai is one of my favourites.
    The song has 2 very distinctive parts and then permits to have 2 different parts (a calm one & a speed one) in the clip. Though the song is a little bit long, and it becomes difficult to keep the viewer's attention it permits the clip to have a good (?) storyline. You'll tell me if you understood what I tried to show in the end.
    I also tried to stick the Lyrics in the 1st part in English (just some few moment in the Japanese part).

    The Lyrics
    I could not look back,
    you'd gone away from me
    I felt my heart ache
    I was afraid of following you
    When I had looked at
    the shadows on the wall
    I started running into the night
    to find the truth in me


    arashi fuku kono machi ga omae wo daku
    fukinukeru kaze ni sae me wo tojiru

    omae wa hashiridasu nanika ni owareru you
    ore ga mienai no ka sugu soba ni iru no ni

    hitonami ni kiete yuku kioku no toiki
    ai no nai hitori butai mou taekirenai
    All of you in my memory is
    still shining in my heart

    sure chigau kokoro wa afureru namida nure

    kurenai ni somatta kono ore wo
    nagusameru yatsu wa mou inai

    mou nido to todokanai kono omoi
    tozasareta ai ni mukai
    sakebi tsuzukeru
    omae wa hashiridasu nanika ni owareru you
    ore ga mienai no ka sugu soba ni iru no ni

    kurenai ni somatta kono ore wo
    nagusameru yatsu wa mou inai

    mou nido to todokanai kono omoi
    tozasareta ai ni mukai
    sakebi tsuzukeru

    kurenai ni somatta kono ore wo
    nagusameru yatsu wa mou inai

    Crying in deep red


    Evolution
    I had a first version (sort of beta version) that you can download here :

    This Beta version was made discovering Adobe Premiere Standard and without knowing and using the different parameters of differents effects. We can also see that I tried a lot of effects just for fun without real meanings.

    Participation to the AMV contest -Japan Expo 8 (2007)
    I think I knew it was a little presumtuous of me to participate a contest but I was really proud of my AMV...
    But it was not selected for the final ranking, it just entered the "You have some talent" part.

    Last Note
    Half a year after having created this first AMV, I'm still really proud of it.
    Today I release it here in the.Org in a MP4 version and the only thing I regret is the last 'waving' transition.
    I shouldn't have kept it... I really dislike it and iit would be the first thing I'd change if I had kept my sources and project.

    Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I like it... :)
