This video is essentially about the "similarities" between Spike and Vincent. It is pure symbolism, including, but DEFINITELY NOT limited to, the intentionally missed beats at some points, the repetitiveness, and occasional blurring effects that you'll notice. Everything you see is intentional. I'm sure most of you will think I'm just saying that to cover up glaring suckiness on my part, but I assure you that that's not the case. I must be honest though, half the reason that I made this video was for the part at about 2:20, and if you don't like it, then screw you. Or not, but the point is that that was, in my mind, the key point of the video. I also took a sort of "creative liberty" in pretty much making it look like (sort of), that Spike is the one that killed Vicious, not... eh, I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen.
The song, "Missed Beat", was originally 9 minutes and 9 seconds long. I cut it down to little more than 3 and a half. People who have heard this song are pretty much going to kill me, because I had to cut out a few energetic bits, but those who haven't either won't notice or all or will barely notice.
This video was made on and off again over the course of three months. I got the footage and song myself, so please don't flip out on me, because I inevitably get someone who thinks I didn't.
Oh, and the opening bump was done by me. The animation on the rex was supposed to be better and fit in more seamlessly, but I was getting impatient. It'll be way better next time. Not that that's even the point of the video, but somebody might be curious.
The .avi version requires XviD (preferably Koepi's build), but there is a substantially lower-quality MPEG-1 available.
