    Here comes my first video in Adobe Premiere. Fun, no?

    This video is part of my "interactive learning process" for the Adobe Suite. In fact, it completes the first lesson. Lesson One consists of:
    -Getting familiar with basic Premiere editing techniques.
    -Learning how to use keyframes.
    -Learning how to slow down/speed up clips.
    -Applying video effects and transitions.
    -Knowing how to customize and create a project.
    -Learning interlace/progressive, pixels, codecs.
    -Learning how to compress a video to good results.

    If you want the short version, this video basically consists of many fades revolving around lyrical sync.

    Yes, this video has Sakura x Syaoran, and I do realize that it's been overdone. However, I am very happy with this video. Why? Cardcaptor Sakura is my favorite anime of all time, and finishing this video means a lot to me. Whatever originality (or lack of) that is present, I really don't care, since I am just glad that I created the AMV I have been wanting to attempt ever since I first started making AMVs. And to me, that means more than anything.

    I've found that the song isn't very used often though; only three AMVs on this site used it before I created this one. What a pity, since it's a cute song with a nice melody. The video is based on the first innocent crushes of two characters, Sakura and Syaoran, from their different perspectives. What I tried to do was use the lyrics as much as possible (it's very fitting too) and tried to keep "other characters" out of the relationship in focus. Thus, I must apologize for the lack of certain characters (*cough*Tomoyo*cough*) and I didn't want to use THAT relationship either, if you know what I mean. Don't worry though - Sakura is cute enough for the whole series.

    The video starts with Sakura's first crush, Yukito. Then, the focus is on Syaoran's first crush, Sakura. After Syaoran leaves Sakura on the bridge, the video switches back to Sakura's perspective as she remembers Yukito one last time then makes up her mind about the one she likes best then goes to say farewell to Syaoran.

    That's pretty much it. I hope you will enjoy the video!

    Song: Innocence

    Waking up I see that everything is okay
    The first time in my life and now it's so great
    Slowing down I look around and I am so amazed
    I think about the little things that make life great

    I wouldn't change a thing about it
    This is the best feeling

    This innocence is brilliant
    I hope that it will stay
    This moment is perfect
    Please don't go away
    I need you now
    And I'll hold on to it
    Don't you let it pass you by

    I found a place so safe, not a single tear
    The first time in my life and now it's so clear
    Feel calm, I belong, I'm so happy here
    It's so strong and now I let myself be sincere

    I wouldn't change a thing about it
    This is the best feeling

    This innocence is brilliant
    I hope that it will stay
    This moment is perfect
    Please don't go away
    I need you now
    And I'll hold on to it
    Don't you let it pass you by

    It's a state of bliss, you think you're dreaming
    It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
    It's so beautiful it makes you want to cry
    It's a state of bliss, you think you're dreaming
    It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
    It's so beautiful it makes you want to cry
    It's so beautiful it makes you want to cry

    This innocence is brilliant
    (makes you wanna cry)
    This innocence is brilliant
    Please don't go away
    Cause i need you now
    And i'll hold on to it
    Don't you let it pass you by
    (It's so beautiful it makes you want to cry)

    This innocence is brilliant (it's so beautiful)
    I hope that it will stay (it's so beautiful)
    This moment is perfect
    Please don't go away
    I need you now (it makes me wanna cry)
    And i'll hold on to it
    Don't you let it pass you by

    Thanks to JaddziaDax for beta testing this.
