Yet another Yami no Matsuei video from WTF Productions. :-)
Believe it or not, this was what I (Starherd) wanted to make instead of the Possession video, but some of the footage I wanted (namely the opening w/out credits) wasn't available last year. This year, however, CPM (bless their hearts) put the creditless opening on the last DVD of the series (which they released as "Descendents of Darkness"). So I guess it all works out...
I adore this song, and have since the "Screen Behind the Mirror" album came out; it's easily my favorite Enigma song. I love its use of Carmina Burana and the climactic buildup (something I look for in songs for AMVs, I guess). For this Tsuzuki-centric video, I'm considering the song to be sung from Muraki's POV - I always thought that the song was about seduction and corruption, that sort of thing, so it *has* to be from Muraki's point of view. To summarize:
Muraki: Join me... together we will rule the galaxy...
And... what's this? Partial lip-synching? Isn't that a no-no?
...Well, it's the scene that originally popped into my head and made me want to make the video, even though none of the rest of it seemed good for lip-synching. So I did it anyway. I'm darned proud of my Oriya lip-synching, too; best I've done to date. I'm usually pretty all-or-nothing with lip-synching, but there's always exceptions. (No, I'm not going to explain... it's pretty obvious when you get to see the video... sorry it took me so long to put it up!)
This video won an Audience Favorite award at Yaoi Con 2003 (It was premiered on 10/18/03, despite what the premiere date up there says. And my son was born on 10/19/03. I didn't even get to see the AMV contest! :-P) ;-)
