  • Comments: My 15th Completed Video
    Programs used: Adobe Premiere 6, Photoshop, Adobe After Effects 6.5 (trial version)

    This video is about different anime characters who have lost someone important to them, and bring them back to life in their minds. To have this concept come across, I wanted to have different effects that contrast between the "real world", and the fantasy world that the characters imagine, in which their loved one still exists.

    This took me about six months to make. I actually started it in August of last year, but I took a couple of breaks inbetween to work on some of my other videos. I spent most of that time working on the effects and looking for scenes of guys with their eyes closed. ;)

    I downloaded a one-month trial version of After Effects so that I could do feathered masks, but I tried to use it as little as possible because Premiere is a lot less annoying to use than After Effects... So I just used it during the last month of editing.

    Special thanks to dwchang, Bakadeshi, and JCD for being such awesome beta testers for this video. ;)

    Lyrics:
    Make this moment last forever and a day
    Watching you drive by
    Not letting you drive away
    Can you see me trying to wave you down tonight
    'Cause I need to see you one more time

    You'll be there in my mind
    In my dreams you can hide
    And every night I'm gonna bring you back to life
    There in my mind
    An angel bathed in light
    Telling me everything's gonna be alright
    If I can just fall asleep tonight

    Lonely is the feeling I can't comprehend
    So I'm skipping to the last page to see how this will end
    Can you see me trying to wave you down tonight
    'Cause I need to see you one more time

    You'll be there in my mind
    In my dreams you can hide
    And every night I'm gonna bring you back to life
    There in my mind
    An angel bathed in light
    Telling me everything's gonna be alright

    Have you ever felt so helpless
    When the walls built to protect us
    Suddenly are gone
    And you hate everything that's breathing
    The life you're used to cheating
    Has finally caught on

    You'll be there in my mind
    In my dreams you can hide
    And every night I'm gonna bring you back to life
    There in my mind
    Standing just to my right
    Telling me everything's gonna be alright
    Yeah, everything’s gonna be alright
    Oh, I know everything’s gonna be alright
    If I can just fall asleep
