ok.. I don't really know what to say about this video. Its been sitting on my computer for close to 7 months. So I've finally decided to release it..
I don't think its a very impressive video. I don't feel its my best work and it didn't quite turn out the way I'd hoped.
The video was an attempt to try a more aggressive editing style particularly around the choruses.
My past videos have a tendency to let scenes linger (not that I think there's anything wrong with that. I just wanted to try something different).. So this was an experiment at not doing that.
i also wanted the video to feel disjointed.. almost dreamlike .. and ultimately to feel like being awakend from a nightmare.. Not knowing what to think about what you saw or felt..
Maybe it works a little bit in that sense.. because I really don't know what to think of this video..
Another reason the video has been waiting so long is that its Evanescence and Bring Me to Life.
I'm sure there are already way too many of these videos around. There weren't when I started (In fact there weren't any) ..But I put the video away for a long long time before getting around to finishing it.. Amazing what happens given enough time..
The video was started on my old desktop system..
a 1Ghz P3 running Win 2K Pro
and my trusty Sony DVMC-DA2 converter
using Media Studio Pro 7
The capture is done via the sony converter.. so it won't have the crispness of a true DVD rip.
about half way thru the process I switched to working on a P4 laptop running XP Pro.
