    I'm a big fan of well done romance AMVs, but haven't been able to make one myself due to lack of footage. I've tried, but it turned out a little forced. So when I finally got my hands on the Kare Kano boxset, I was eager to try something with it.

    Thanks to Feanor's excellent "Center of the Sun" video I've been listening to Conjure One a lot recently. "Sleep" hit me really hard with its beauty, and I knew instantly that this was the track I was going to use.

    Editing to electronic music is surprisingly hard. There are a lot of sounds going on simultaneously and overlapping each other, and you have to pay attention to each of them. Of course that isn't always possible, so at some points I had to decide what instruments were the most dominant and go with them.

    I've uploaded some pictures to visualize the quality difference between the DVD and the AMV:

    "Before" shows the source without any filtering, only resized.
