This was my very first video editting project, ever. I had discovered AMVs by accident (I have yet to attend a con, as of the time I write this, 10-04-2002), and wanted to get into this very interesting hobby for myself. I found a copy of the Premiere 6.0 beta (still using it, I need to upgrade to the real thing), downloaded some DivX digi-subs (Premiere + DivX = whole mess of trouble, trust me), downloaded Chop Suey, which was on the radio constantly at the time and I thought was perfect for Spike, and I got to work. I did this video in a weekend.
Put it up for download, only to find out that someone had put up a video with the exact same anime/song combo the day before. I then discovered through forum conversations and searching the site that a BUNCH of people have done this combo.
Well, horrific unoriginality aside, I like this video. I like some of what I did with it, like the segment of Spike's memories playing through during his confrontation with Vicious (Technically, the whole segment is a fluke, but it's a fluke that works damn well I think), and especially the segment near the end where Julia's death is transposed over Spike's one-man assault on the Red Dragon's HQ.
This video will not be made available here anymore. I want people to focus on my newer videos. Although, if you REALLY want to see it, it is floating around on KaZaA, so you may get lucky if you try that.
