My 11th video! Woohoo!!
This video is a through and through character profile, though really, the character I used (Spike) isn't necessarily the one being profiled. It is more of a retelling of the story in the song, simply put to the imagery presented in Cowboy Bebop.
However, alot of the elements in both stories match up in many aspects, and even more so is the overall tone of both the anime and the song. I have been a fan of the song for quite some time now, and I felt that it and Bebop would be an absolutely perfect match, each lending it's own take on the other.
This video was actually started about 2 months ago, but after a day of solid editing, I seemed to hit a slump. I reopened the project several times after in the days to come, but every time I went to edit, nothing came out. This bummed the hell out of me, as I really love the song and this video's concept, but I just couldn't manage to come up with anything good. This was (I come to realize later) due mostly to the serious amount of pain I was in at the time because of some tooth problems.
So, I tucked this video away and actually forgot about it until yesterday when Machine and MJ stopped by my house to hang out. I remembered it, dug it up, and showed em the beta, which they enjoyed. Now being out of pain 2 months later, I got a second wind and edited the 2nd half of this vid in one day.
And there you have it. Finished vid!
Im really happy the way it turned out, and I hope you all enjoy it! Its a bit different from my usual type of AMV, and no, its not Appetite part 2, so please don't go into it with any preconceived notions. Just have fun!
As always, the vid is compressed in XviD, and can be viewed simply by installing the newest version of DivX.
Please drop my an opinion if you can, I would love to hear what you all thought of it ^_^
