This video has been a serious pain for me. This sort of song isn't my style... it's not a slow song like my Broken or Find My Way Home videos, nor is it fast paced like Whirl or Clockwork. It's a middle area that is exceedingly difficult to edit in an exciting way. It was particuarly hard to get the chorus more exciting than everything else. XD I'm not too ecstatic about this video. Then again, I felt the same way about Clockwork and Whirl, and they're fan favorites, so... yeah, here's to hoping!
I had a lot of trouble with the mattes too, which is why they look so sloppy. This is my first video using Premier Pro (switched from 6.5) and the track mattes work differently, so I ran into a lot of trouble with them. Regardless, they serve their purpose. I also used more effects than usual. This song needed them. Sapphire ftw!
This video is about life and death. Death comes to meet us all eventually, and it is often quite unexpected, but rather than succumbing to it, rise to meet it. Live life to it's fullest, and strive to live, because we are all meant to live for something great. And though we all wish it were so, we do not get a Second Life. Enjoy!!
I'm planning on entering this at Manifest. Deadline approaching, AAAH!!
EDIT: Participated at Manifest AMV comp, won Peppa-chan and Friends AMV Award. Huzaah!
