This video has been but a dream in my head ever since I first saw the X TV series. Even before I made my "1999" video, I knew that the X video I really wanted to make was this one. And at long last I collected all the DVDs and lay in wait, ready to start. But many things kept me from starting, but at long last I began whilst I was away (with my computer of course) last July. I had a very specific vision for this video, and I was ready to make it a reality. But making it a reality was a lot harder than I thought it would be.
It took me three months just to get the opening guitar sequence down to my satisfaction ( and I still tweaked it at the end of the project). And with everything going on, and the high expectations I had placed on myself, this under taking began to cosume my life. Nine months of my life to be exact. I could have had a baby in the time it took to finish this thing. And truely, it is my baby. I endured a love-hate relationship with this thing from the start. I could often be heard threatening to just ravage the whole thing, ranting about how it should die. I became convinced that it was nowhere near good enough to be consuming this much of my time, that I was a failure, and it sucked. But somehow, it finally ended. It had lost all ability to be objective about the overall quality of it, as I was simply too close to the project, but it was done. Eventually I did come to see that I hadn't failed, and that it was actually much better than I had previously thought. Its not bad, not bad at all.
I love X, I think this song fits it wonderfully, especially the Kamui/Fuuma conflict. And I have high hopes for this video. I really put it a lot of effort. And I hope you enjoy.
