- Iron & Wine Boy With A Coin
This video started as an entry for a contest, and ended up as a full AMV. But all I really did was add credits to the original contest video, so that's why it's fairly short.
As for the story, it's focus is on Simon, Nia, and their relationship. It basically follows along the path of how they met each other and ended up staying by each others side. It's not meant to be extremely romantic, but more about the bond that they share.
Footage - [ Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann ]
I merely chose this anime because it fit the best to the song, in my opinion. The beginning of the song heavily reminded me of Simon, so I decided to keep it going with that in mind.
Song - [ Iron & Wine - "Boy With A Coin" ]
Since this was originally for a contest, their was already a set choice of about ten songs. This seemed like the most askew of the choices, so I decided to take a shot at editing to it.
Editing Process -
This video was intended to have effects, and as original as possible. Because of that, I went out of my normal editing style and tried to do something interesting yet really odd to fit the kind of feeling the song gave off, so I used consistent effects which were mostly comprised of a metallic background, an overlay of blurred footage, color changes, and a few other things. This ended up giving the video a very reminiscent sort of feeling.
