    Idea

    Anyways, I'd had this idea buzzing around in my head pretty much since i saw "Darkness Over Light: the Other Side of Me" by Michele and Hinatasan, i thought "Hmmm, that band are good, i can make a vid to that other song that i can remember, Akira should go well!"

    i wasn't quite right, when i got to the planning stage it all went a bit awry as i found that while a large amount of the lyrics do fit the idea of looking at Tetsuo from Kaneda's perspective, some of it doesn't work at all, so i changed my idea so it slightly told the story and slightly looked at the characters in question, i think it turned out quite well.

    Lyrics:

    Trust Company - Hover

    You take me down, further inside of me
    Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
    I hover

    To see you leave again, it's over
    And it kills me to watch you descend, to the end

    Can't think straight
    Shutting me out - closing me out
    Are you trying - hurting
    Taking me out - leaving me out
    Keeps me struggling
    You're leaving

    You take me down, further inside of me
    Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
    I hover

    to see you caving in, I'm undone
    And to say it's the last time again
    It's the end

    Can't think straight
    Shutting me out - closing me out
    Are you trying - hurting
    Taking me out - leaving me out
    Keeps me struggling
    I'm leaving

    You take me down, further inside of me
    Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
    I hover

    I'm watching you descend
    I'm hovering instead
    I'm watching you descend
    I'm hovering instead

    You take me down, further inside
    Now I can see through you

    You take me down, further inside of me
    Now I'm fading out, I can barely see
    I hover
    I hover
    I hover
    I hover again

    Tech Stuff

    In this vid i tried to use more advanced editing techniques than i have before, such as overlays (the intro and ~0:39 - ~0:42), and white flashes to emphasise cuts (all over the place), but also i took it as a good opportunity to tighten my action editing and beat sync, i think i did quite well really.

    Furthermore, i used this vid as an opportunity to test out some of the pre/post-processing techniques/filters as detailed in EADFAG, i think it worked very well as anyone who's seen the PAL encode of Akira will no doubt attest, it's got noise and some slight blurring, but nothing too major.
