  • Comments: Don't really know what to say now. I had been working on this particular amv for quite a while...way back in May or something. Evntually, I didn't necessarily burn out on the project so much as I got sidetracked between work and other unfortunate events. For a while I just refused to edit. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I suddenly figured that I should finish this and eventually it got done (I was probably more through the project thatn I thought I had already done).

    Awhile ago, I had run a check on how many Haibane videos there were on the org and I realized that then there were only around 45 (I think there's around 65), which I kind of thought as odd. I thought that Haibane was a more popular show, but nonetheless I was much happier to put out an amv of which I really liked the anime from. Hopefully this won't be the last.

    The song, Nelly Furtado's Força is one of my favorite songs...period. When I first heard the Folklore CD, I was just won over. When I first started this project I had been watching the movie, Personal Velocity, of which I had gotten really into, so I decided to name this video in that respect since I kind of think of Rakka's character similar to the ones in the movie. Anyway, the small story is basically how the song fits Rakka the whole way through. It's not meant to be dramatic or overly funny. I guess it's like an intro for the character Rakka. Like my last video, I tried a few new things, mostly the rotating bar in the beginning and end of the video. I like it in the beginning but was kinda confused near the end as to why I used it again. But after thinking for awhile I just didn't know what to replace it with. Regardless of the problems to finish this and going back on a few ideas that I really wanted to try out, I still liked this projcet. Hopefully others will too.

    I'm sure any person smarter than me would've realized that perhaps lyrics to the song would be sort of helpful. I guess that's how most of the details in the project eluded me. Simply because I had been working on this so long...everything always looked fine (beta-testing could've bedn very useful here).
    Anyway, my translations in Portuguese are spotty at best (but should at least give you an idea of what the line should represent). For the chorus, the first complete line 'Com uma forca que ninguem pode parar:' might sound something like 'With a force that none can stop' The second complete line, 'Com uma fome que ninguem pode matar' might sound like 'With a hunger that none can kill'. Conversely, Nelly Furtado herself describes the word 'forca' translating as "Keep Going" or "Kick ass" so take it for what you'd like. Finally, 'mais perto do ceu' during the bridge is already translated as 'Closer to the sky', which comes after 'Closer way up high'.

    It is the passion flowing right on through your veins
    And it’s the feeling that you’re oh so glad you came
    It is the moment you remember you´re alive
    It is the air you breathe, the element, the fire
    It is that flower that you took the time to smell
    It is the power that you know you got as well
    It is the fear inside that you can overcome
    This is the orchestra, the rhythm and the drum

    Com uma força, com uma força
    Com uma força que ninguem pode parar
    Com uma força, com uma força
    Com uma fome que ninguem pode matar

    It is the soundtrack of your ever-flowing life
    It is the wind beneath your feet that makes you fly
    It is the beautiful game that you choose to play
    When you step out into the world to start your day
    You show your face and take it in and scream and pray
    You´re gonna win it for yourself and us today
    It is the gold, the green, the yellow and the grey
    The red and sweat and tears, the love you go. Hey!

    Com uma força, com uma força
    Com uma força que ninguem pode parar
    Com uma força, com uma força
    Com uma fome que ninguem pode matar

    Closer to the sky, closer, way up high, mais perto do ceu

    Com uma força, com uma força
    Com uma força que ninguem pode parar
    Com uma força, com uma força
    Com uma fome que ninguem pode matar
