Attention all AMV.org members:
That is all.
For those that don't know: The Smashing Pumpkins have two similar songs, one titled "The End Is The Beginning Is The End" and "The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning". Both songs use the same general beat, and share the same chorus, but have different styles. TEITBITE is a more rock styled song, however TBITEITB is a much more moody style.
Since I started editing I've always wanted to edit to the song "The End Is The Beginning Is The End" by The Smashing Pumpkins. I could just never pin a source. Years later, with the nifty looking Watchmen trailer being released, I thought to myself "why not use the other version of the song?". 24 hours later I'd edited the 5 minute song down to the length (and style) I wanted and hopped to it.
This video flowed out of me amazingly well, and I'm pretty damn proud of it. I think it's different from any of the other videos I've edited, just for the sense that it isn't your typical 'drama' vid, and there's pretty much no real action in it. It's just moody in a sense I guess.
I like it a lot, and I guess it'd be cool if you did to.
Brad - For doing all the prep and processing work for me, so all I had to worry about was the actual editing. Also for putting up with my screwups in the frame rate department, and my constant re-sending of a slightly changed project file and making him re-render it. Lastly for doing some bitching credits for me.
Akwar - For :up:ing the audio edit.
Liz, Ileia, and Jay - For giving the "it's dark" response. It's what I was going for, so it put a pretty big smile on my face when I would link you and the first thing you'd say is "it's dark". Thanks guys =D
