  • Comments: Well, I watched Kanon a while ago and absolutely loved it. So I wanted to do a vid to it, a general vid (since girl profiles had already been claimed). Anyways, I have to thank CrackTheSky for (indirectly) showing me this song, since I found it on his mySpace page.

    When I was making this, I didn't really have a clear concept in my head. I was just going with the mood and lyrics of the music. This video definitely has spoilers (so beware I guess? o.o). Most of my beta testers said (and I agree) it would certainly help to have seen the series before. Regardless, I highly recommend watching the series.

    Now I know that there are at least a few lip flap correction mistakes, and the resolution is a touch strange. I was planning to fix them as well as make a few adjustments (killing the lip flap I had left in there, switching out the small amount of raw footage I was forced to use with R2, and general changes to the vid itself) for org release, but due to a rogue uninstallation of a program, I experienced a fairly large data loss, including the project file. I didn't feel like rebuilding it, so I just ripped my vid off the Pro DVDs and compressed. Quality also might not be as good as it could be due to this

    I probably spent about 20-30 hours on this. I did about 2 minutes of it over a period of a week or so. However, I had to rush the remaining 4 minutes in order to make the deadlines for a few contests.

    This was my AWA Pro entry. Was nominated for Best Romance/Sentimental and Best Drama, which was better than I expected

    Song Lyrics (for those who care):

    When in the springtime of the year
    When the trees are crowned with leaves
    When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew
    Are dressed in ribbons fair.

    When owls call the breathless moon
    in the blue veil of the night
    When shadows of the trees appear
    amidst the lantern('s) light.

    We've been rambling all the night
    and sometime of this day
    Now returning back again
    we bring a garland gay.

    Who will go down to those shady groves
    and summon the shadows there
    And tie a ribbon on those sheltering arms
    in the springtime of the year.

    The sounds of birds seem to fill the wood
    and when the fiddler plays
    All their voices can be heard
    long past their woodland days.

    We've been rambling all the night
    and sometime of this day
    Now returning back again
    we bring a garland gay.

    And so they linked their hands and danced
    'round in circles and in rows
    And so the journey of the night descends
    when all the shades are gone.

    A garland gay we bring you here
    And at your door we stand
    Here's a sprout, well budded out
    The work of our Lord's hand.

    We've been rambling all the night
    and sometime of this day
    Now returning back again
    we bring a garland gay.

    We've been rambling all the night
    and sometime of this day
    Now returning back again
    we bring a garland gay.
