    WINNER OF MINDWARP FALL/WINTER 2001 CONTEST FOR BEST NON-ANIME VIDEO.

    Date : Aug 25, 2001.
    The newly updated "ParasiteMustGoOn" video is here. Changes include:
    Better video and sound quality. ^_^ (at last!)
    More focused footage.
    Entire video beat synched, and added even more lyric sync.
    New Logo and Titles. z.z
    Better integrated original sounds.

    Recommended tips : Full screen and Loud! And don't get discouraged by game FMVs, they are of high quality.

    The update time on this clip took about 5-10 hours. No biggie. This actually incorporated a bigger change than the Tekken one. Those that did download the earlier version are recommended to check this one out. Those that did like it, don't want to miss this one.

    Date : March 2001

    Parasite Eve 1, by Squaresoft to Queen's Show must go on. A epic match-up.

    When I first saw the clips, they blew me away. I've never yet seen such good looking FMV in games at that point. And since the full motion video looked too good to not make a video of, off I went. While I've not played the game, I've seen other do, and I sure know how the story goes. I wanted this video to be epic, epic, epic, which is a style I really like. I like videos to be larger than life (or your screen!). Queen's Show Must Go On, fits the game pretty well in it's individual components and it's overall theme. Since there were about 20-25 minutes of footage available tops and I was going to make a 4+ minute video, I did a lot of footage budgeting and planning. Making sure things match the lyrics very well in words, mood and music as well as making sure it rises to a climax each time the song does, never letting the demanding song down. I hope I've been successful.

    NOTE: This video also contains sounds from the original game. There are here to fully support the song and to add to the video's grandness.

    I've also made a less serious version to another song. I've never played this game myself but seen others who did. I hoped that I was able to capture the epic feel of the game and the song.

    This video originally took about a week or two to make way back in 98. Total footage of PE was I think about less than 20-30 minutes of footage.

    Thanks!

    Lyrics Follows:

    The Show Must Go On

    Empty spaces - what are we living for
    Abandoned places - I guess we know the score
    On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for...
    Another hero, another mindless crime
    Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
    Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore

    The show must go on,
    The show must go on
    Inside my heart is breaking
    My make-up may be flaking
    But my smile still stays on.

    Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance
    Another heartache, another failed romance
    On and on, does anybody know what we are living for?
    I guess I'm learning, I must be warmer now
    I'll soon be turning, round the corner now
    Outside the dawn is breaking
    But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free

    The show must go on
    The show must go on
    Inside my heart is breaking
    My make-up may be flaking
    But my smile still stays on

    My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
    Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
    I can fly - my friends
    The show must go on
    The show must go on
    I'll face it with a grin
    I'm never giving in
    On - with the show -
    I'll top the bill, I'll overkill
    I have to find the will to carry on
    On with the -
    On with the show -
    The show must go on...
