    This is my most ambitious video yet, and possibly the one I've placed the most effort on. Euphoria is the first part of a two-part video series I have planned with a central theme of dreaming. The second is to come later this year. Anyways, the video itself is quite a technical achievement for myself and surpasses all my videos thus far. It can also serve as an introduction to a fairly under-rated anime, RahXephon. However, it is still a drama video and contains quite a bit of symbolism.

    The video itself centers on Kamina Ayato and his relationship to the two leading women in the anime, Haruka and Reika. The video can be looked upon as a dream within a dream for Kamina. There were plenty of moments in RahXephon that made it seem dream-like so I knew that it was possible to make this happen.

    The song. The song and its lyrics immediately entranced me. It also flowed so well that I could practically see the video taking shape to it.

    Lyrics______________________

    Pay close attention
    Don't listen to me from now
    George'll be flying this one
    And it's anyone's guess how he does
    This is the right turn, wrong universe
    Taking me in full bloom
    Fireball, careful with that there
    See what you made me do

    I must be dreaming or
    We're onto something
    I must be dreaming for
    I don't fall in love lawlessly
    I must be dreaming or
    Pinch me to waking
    So undeniably yours
    As long as I'm losing it so completely

    Incendiary glance
    Be come and collide in me

    While I go helplessly
    Sky high, magic eye
    Sugar rushing
    Don't

    I must be dreaming or
    We're onto something
    Hey just whatcha make me for
    I don't fall in love lawlessly
    I must be dreaming or
    Pinch me to waking
    So undeniably yours
    As long as I'm losing it so completely

    Euphoria
    I can't take, anymore of yah
    I'm losing it

    Note: An MPEG1 version is available for download, but only download it if your computer isn't able to handle Xvid compression. The MPEG version is significantly lower in video quality. Thanks.

    Update: A higher quality version has been uploaded onto the RVP server. It is also encoded in Divx compatible Xvid, but it has a 640x480 resolution and 320kb mp3 audio. The 512x384 version with 160kb mp3audio is still available on the local server. Enjoy!
