***SPRIGGAN SPOILER WARNING***
Alright, now lets start with a little background here on the origins of this video. Basically, I got the flu, hardcore, and was in the absolute worst pain I've ever felt. This was the sickest I ever remember being. I'd had the flu before, but this was way worse than any other time. So what was I inspired to do while sitting there on my butt staring into space? Make an amv of course. This was the inspiration for the song choice. I made the video entirely while I was sick, and would like to consider it a one week wonder with about 3-4 hours put into it a day.
Now on to the video itself. What I was really going for was the main character of Spriggan (Ominae Yu) basically having a confrontation with his past as a child soldier. In the video he's already escaped the prison of his childhood, but the idea is that he has reoccuring nightmares about it. This is basically the first 30 seconds. These nightmares plus the death of his friend (the guy who blows up), lead him to start travelling. He finds many faces from his past, plus the crazed psychic child soldier Colonel MacDougal. What I was really going for was that durring Yu's fight with MacDougal and the machine corps, he was liberating himself from his past a second time. The climax of the vid where he actually beats Macdougal is basically like the time he killed his entire unit, liberating himself from his "brainwashing" as a child.
Well, thats the vid in a nutshell, hope you like it.
