This AMV was hard yet easy to make in another way entirely.
In 2004 I lost a good friend as well as losing the only grandfather I had left in this world plus an Uncle I was close to. It left me feeling very depressed for a long time. I wanted to make an AMV that would be good enough to dedicate to them. The Drinking Problem, Sacrifice Of Ryu Soma, and Beyond The Sky I felt they weren't right for it. So creators block happened so I stopped for awhile, I had a the only friend I had left stay with me for the first 4 months which made things feel better. However when he moved away from here getting as much sick the city we lived in as I am, it made me realize how truly lonely I was and I was depressed again. I have alot of vampire footage that I just finished working through pre production with on my new computer. I was going to do the sequel to Vampires. However I just felt too depressed to work on it, so I sat down wallowing my my loneliness listening to soft songs when "Lonely Road Of Faith" by Kid Rock came on. Thats when an idea popped in there, I opened Adobe and just went with it. In one night I had the video half done, the next day I got around 80% done. Then for the rest of the week I added in many things that i felt would be hard to place, added a few simple special effects as well. I made the AMV as if I was making it about myself and I guess in many ways it is. Take it anyway you want
I am very proud of this video, its alot like putting my "Against The Wind" and "I'm Still Here" video together. It seems the best videos I do are the ones I put myself in more than anything else or I just had fun. Now after making the video I feel more better about myself, its only after making these comments that I found the perfect title.
So I dedicate "The Lonely Road Of Life" to my Grandfather Gordon Bussey, Uncle Bill Brinston, and a good friend Tyler Littler.
