This a remake of one of my first videos. Having just built a PC (the first PC I have ever built and the first I have ever owned); I decided to give Premiere a whorl and I wanted to do something "simple". This was also my first time using AVS scripts ... making the video look better than the first time I made it back in '05.
Just want to warn people who have not seen the first version of Lost Innocence, that this is not a happy video.
I also wanted to remake this video, because of the following email I got a few years ago ... I fixed not only the quality, but also some of the scenes that I was not happy with the first time.
You said you liked feedback, so I thought I would write and let you know how your 'Lost Innocence' video is one of the most powerful AMV's I have ever watched. I accept that some people dismiss it as a medium, claiming you are just cutting and pasting clips alongside music, but I honestly don't think watching the anime would have had the same effect on me as your video did.
I first watched your video about two years ago when you had it up on youtube. Since I had recently suffered a miscarraige (due to similar circumstances that the protagonist in your video portrayed) it really struck me. I watched it over and over again, and each time the chord striking as she hits her belly with a rock made me physically wince. It was such a perfect, beautiful piece of editing art. I lost track of it for a long time (I believe you took it down) until I went looking again for the song by Kirstin Hersh (having found the Cat Stevens version not as good due to a lack of female vocalisation). I found your site, saw your email and thought 'Why not?'
So there you are, I hope the feedback was worth it :)
