I had an idea for a visual concept I wanted to try on a video for awhile... this is not it. This was going to be it but it proved impossible to do so I just worked with it. Originally I wanted a mainly black background and characters and scenes occurring inside the blackness, with them interacting through the entirety of the video in mainly blackness. Doing that however made it almost impossible to get my story across... Which still barely comes off at all. In Tale of memories Chihiro writes a book about a girl who is completely alone and paints a picture of a guy which she then debates about trying to live inside the painting with him and ultimately deciding to be on her own than in the fakeness. This is my attempt of visualizing her book. Except instead of a painting she's submerging herself in it's the book she's witting about him and her together. With the colors, or lack there of, representing her 'loneliness' If you got that while watching congrats I think you're the only one =p
This is a small video which actually took way more time than it should have because I overloaded it with effects. Effects no one should notice. With either masking, color changes or a variety of other things there is not one scene here that was left as is and hopefully you won't notice as I tried my best to make them as understated and seamless as possible.
This song was almost impossible to find. I had heard a few tracks from DREDGE before and looked at their myspace page for more, they had put this song up there under the name Overhead Night. I loved it instantly and after hours of searching and getting friends to help I find out it's real name is What have I done off the waterbourn soundtrack which I ended up having to get the whole thing and I couldn't be happier as each track ended up being a DREDG instrumental piece and is completely brilliant.
I entered it into AWA Pro and it ended up being a finalist for Instrumental and Drama (Most likely due to lack of entries o.o) I lost to Nya Chan and Prodigi respectively.
