  • Comments: Well wow, I've came a long way didn't I? The best way I can describe this AMV is that it's my greatest and most ambitious piece of work to date. I started using After Effects in this AMV and I barely scratched the surface with that program, I'm going to assume that if I could do that much with little knowledge of the program, imagine if I knew it like the back of my hand.

    However for the making of this AMV, my actual incentive that I wanted to represent Macross Frontier in all it's glory, it's a complete underdog in the anime industry to be honest and I wanted more people to enjoy it just like I did, since it continues based off of the legendary and epic story of Macross.
    The song however was stuck in my head for about a year in a half when I first heard Shiny Toy Gun's single on Conan O'Brian, it's crazy were you can get your ideas.

    But back then I couldn't decide on what anime to use this song for since it was such a amazing song until Macross Frontier ended, then the idea came to use Frontier. However I didn't push for the idea until the beginning of this year.Then in February I started editing from then on to the AX deadline, which seemed to be plenty of time, though it wasn't. When I started everything just flowed, sort of (effects), but when you know what you want to create, you can create something amazing.

    My advice is that you never make something to impress others or to win contests, regardless if it does, do it to make yourself happy, and to express who you are. People loving your work is just icing on the cake. :P

    To note Monsoon used "Rainy Monday" was also from the same album, and to see how both of those got into AX just made me proud of myself. After 3 years of entering the contest, not only did I get in, I got in twice, that's a large feat on a contest of that caliber. Both AMVs are also in HD for enjoyment.
    But really you can achieve anything if you put your heart into it, don't give up, ever.

    Lyrics that I shamelessly ripped off from the first site that I googled.

    Black rose & a radio fire
    its so contagious
    such something changing my mind
    im gonna take whats evil
    ........................................................

    Your cover melting inside
    with wide eyes you tremble
    kissing over & over again
    your god knows his faithful

    ........................................................

    I try - to digest my pride
    but passions grip i fear
    when i climb - into shallow vats of wine
    i think i almost hear - but its not clear

    ........................................................

    Chours.
    You are the one
    you'll never be alone again
    your more then in my head - your more

    ........................................................

    Spin faster shouting out loud
    you cant steal whats paid for
    such something hurting again
    murder son shes painful

    You so believe your own lies
    on my skin your fingers
    runaway until the last time
    were gonna lose forever

    ........................................................

    when you try - don't try to say you wont
    try to crawl into my head
    when you cry - cause it's all built up inside
    your tears already said - already said

    ........................................................

    Chorus.

    ........................................................

    You'll never be alone again
    ........................................................

    Chorus.
