My first attempt to use a techno song of sorts. At the time I began to make this video (over 3 years ago), I had seen a lot of EVA amv’s but not Nerv amv’s. So, it took me a while to get things in order. I used to edit amv’s using VHS footage. That prevented me from doing the Nerv amv because I say so much potential in it. I eventually got the dvd’s, but I still didn’t have the song. So, after going through my AMV Potential Playlist about 17 times, I gave up. Then I heard the Planet of the Apes cd and it had a techno song on it. It clicked.
I’m mostly a “story” editor. My videos have a narrative. A techno video became a problem. I couldn’t figure out how to tell the story. Long story short, a couple of rewrites and postponements later, it all came together. That’s where the heartbeat, literally and figuratively speaking came about. The Gendo Pulse paved the way for the rest of the video and the feel. Surprisingly, it also paved the way for the “UN Disclaimer” that gave it a “Debriefing Video” feel. Thus, the story was born.
