There aren't a whole lot of Blue Gender videos out there.
That said, I enjoy Bad Religion and I enjoy Blue Gender, and after listening to the song on the way to and from ACen 2002 then watching Blue Gender, I couldn't help but feel the two were meant to be.
Blue Gender, in a nutshell, is the story of Yuji, a modern-day guy with an incurable disease. He's put into cryo-sleep with a few dozen others in hopes that future doctors will have a cure. Years pass, and Yuji is rudely awakened by a military team to a world gone mad, overrun with giant insects and the remnants of humanity. The world he once knew is gone, and he must come to terms with his new reality.
That is to say, he will "construct this sound defense". This video attempts to illustrate his initial panic and reluctant resolve to fight for his world.
First full-length AMV done in Adobe Premiere for me. Not much in the way of effects, short of keen glass-breaking and water ripple transitions and a stretch of flashback footage that I dirtied up with FilmFX.
