This is actually the second incarnation of this anime / song pairing. The first time through, my creative well ran dry about halfway through. I also realized this song isn't very long and I had only taken clips from the first eight minutes of the episode. There were still too many ideas to express in too little time so I set the entire project down and left it so I'd hopefully come back to it refreshed and with a new vision.
About four months later, after watching episode 13 again, I realized I was placing Haruhi's fall down the rabbit hole too far into the video and spending too much time introducing the actual theme of the project. I scrapped the entire thing and started over.
I had decided that quick scenes would keep the viewers' attention better and get more ideas across. Once I had certain elements set in stone as non-negotiable (meaning that the video would fall apart if these things were missing), everything else practically came together on its own.
I usually try for comedy, but this felt comfortable to me. Once I started rebuilding, it all flowed without the slightest friction. Since Drama is such a crowded AMV contest category, chances are this video may never make it onto a ballot (although I will try anyway). I want this video to be seen and to know what you think.
Enjoy a classic song set behind a classic anime episode...
