An exploration of the relationship between Subaru Sumeragi and Seishirou Sakurazuka.
This video is a collaborative effort between the husband/wife team of Freeptop from C&C Productions and Kasra_WTF from WTF Productions. A little more than a year ago, Freeptop suggested the song and anime to me as a potential vid for Yaoi-Con 2003 about a week before the deadline. Because I take forever to make vids, I knew that anything I tried to throw together last minute would never be to my satisfaction (to say nothing of the fact that only 6 of the 8 X dvds were available at the time), so I shelved the idea for the time being and focused on cleaning up and sending out our already finished entries in time for that deadline.
Fast forward to April 2004. I'm poking around trying to pick a new project when the idea strikes me - why not try making the video with the very person who had suggested it in the first place? My husband was agreeable, so we pulled together a basic edit of the song, hacked up a preliminary storyboard, and I got to work capturing footage.
Real life interfered many times over the summer while we were working on it, which resulted in a few very late nights of last-minute editing right up against the deadline, but we finished it in time and submitted it as a joint project for Yaoi-Con 2004. The response we received from the audience at the AMV contest was amazing and made the entire effort well worth it.
"All That Could Have Been" was voted Best Drama by the audience at Yaoi-Con 2004.
