    During the time between my latest video and this one, I tried to found ispiration for anything, without any success.. Something changed listening this music by Hoobastank. So we can say that the concept borned from the music, listening to it, I was actually always saying "I love this chorus!", that was the exactly opposite for all the rest of the song, that I was hating, really. I anyway found an idea, a concept and a ispiration with this song, and I couldn't lose this opportunity :) And I so starte to plan this video. The concept of this video, is this one and should be read carefully, this video doesn't follow the story of the original show: In this video, Naruto doesn't know with who he is talking, in his life, he actually felt not alone, with a costant voice singin in his brain.. At times, he was losing his control, killing people, destroying things. At this time he finally don't accept more of this, and so he search a way to find what is happening to him, find his soul, the enemy within him, and kill him. So, the video follow this search of Naruto, this nightmare, and ends with the death of this mysteryous person, killed by Naruto, finally. Any viewer can actually make his own story, he can think this 'person' has Kyubi, or as anything he believe more strongly correct. Anyway, in my original concept, we are not allowed to know who actually is.

    Plan/Edit
    I planned this video writing it on a paper, something I nearly never done, this because I knew since the beginning of the video how it should have gone, I knew exactly how I wanted it from the beginning, I was proud of this plan, but actually I found any kind of problems following it. The video goes like this: during the verses of the song, so anything out of the choruses, there is Naruto during his search, singing at this person, or thing.. So, the story of his nightmare, of his endless search of the mystery within him. Beside, during the chorus I actually show the present, neither past or future, but what is going on the present, so the action of Naruto after have found this person, following him without control of himself, with the objective of kill him/it.

    Software Used/Compression
    For this video I used Photoshop CS, for any type of mask, Adobe Premiere Pro 1.0, for the editing, the synch, any cut or better or evverything that concern that build up of the video. And for the first time Adobe After Effects 6.5.. I used this program for the first time, so I was on a new work ground, but I done my best to use this tool. In this video, I used that for any help on effects on the choruses, and especially for things premiere can't do. About the compression of this vid, it is been a really painful challenge, I didn't done any pre-work of cleaning on the video footage before work on it, no IVTC and nothing like crop the episodes, so this caused a lot of problems, I had to do a lot of tests on Avisynth, and more than that, in the end, even if I am been able to keep a HighQuality factor, the file size is huge, especially if compared with the lenght of 3 minutes that is the video. So I think I will pre-work on footage from now on, thanks to that I will only have to work on cleaning after the work. I must give Special Thanks to Zotto, that helped me a lot on the encoding of the video. Also another Special Thank to Hinatasan who helped me making the mask at 2:23.

    Conclusions
    This will be my last Naruto vid for a long while, I have passion for the show and especially for the manga, but I'm seeing that on amvs is absolutely too overused, and I'm feeling tired to work on that, so for a long while I will leave it ;) Searching new sources of anime. I decided to leave Naruto for the editing especially because I'm seeing how my thing is going.. I'm becoming one of those video makers that because of the overuse of the anime forgot his way of editing and only focus on terrible effects, indeed, in my opinion this last video is a failure. In the end, I suggest you at least to read the concept line above, if you didn't do it already ;) Don't be lazy! ;P So, enjoy! And please, in any way leave a comment if you can, I would be glad to know what you think of it!!


    For help to follow the lyric synch I tried to show in my project, here they are the lyrics of the song^^
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    I've done everything as you say
    I've followed your rules without question
    I thought it would help me see things clearly
    But instead of helping me to see
    I look around and it's like I'm blinded

    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control
    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control

    Where should I go?
    What should I do?
    I don't understand what you want from me
    Cause I don't know
    If I can trust you
    I don't understand what you want from me

    I feel like I'm spinning out of control
    Try to focus but everything's twisted
    And all along I thought you would be there
    (Thought you would be there)
    To let me know I'm not alone
    But in fact that's exactly what I was

    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control
    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control

    (chorus)

    I may never know the answer
    To this endless mystery

    Where should I go?
    What should I do?
    I don't understand what you want from me

    Is it a mystery?
    Is it a mystery?

    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control
    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control
    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control
    I'm spinning out of control...

    (chorus)

    And I may never know the answer
    To this endless mystery

    Where should I go?
    What should I do?
    I don't understand what you want from me

    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control
    I'm spinning out of control
    Out of control
