This is my second AMV...a vast improvement over my first. I was able to more closely follow the guides provided by ErMac and Absolute Destiny, although a departure was necessary in post production. I finally got AVIsynth to work on this one, which helped the pre-editing process immensely.
NOTE: I have remastered this video with the help of Jared Presler of Enigmagic Studios. The compression is better now. Thanks, Jared. It's not as good as it can be yet, but it's a lot better now.
This video was made because I am away from my wife in another state for about six months, and I wanted to express some feelings to her about two people being destined to find each other and feeling each other's presence, despite the distance. I won't go into the intimate details...those are her's alone, but I will say that I attempted to also remain somewhat true to at least an underlying theme in "Spirited Away." The song posed a few more problems in this one, because there wasn't a real thematic develoment throughout, so it was difficult to develop a direction to the narrative aspect of the AMV. I still haven't mastered the compression of my AMV's, but I am getting better at the pre-production side.
I would like to thank FYE for having such a customer friendly arrangement for previewing every album in their store. I was able to browse around for hours looking for possible CD's to choose from, and I never would have selected this album without being able to preview it.
I would also, once again, like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Ian Roberts and ErMac for their excellent guide, which I am gradually beginning to grasp. Maybe after I generate an AMV that lives up to their expectations, Ian will actually answer my messages and tell me why I become so hopelessly dorked up in production. Or maybe I'll meet him at a con, and he will hand me a fanboy restraining order keeping me 500 meters away from his email address. Anyway, thanks, Ian!
