  • Comments: I had this idea for a while. I first heard the song while watching Stelvia and even listened to the song non-stop for a while trying to gather ideas. Unfortunately i didn't really have any direction with it at the time and let it sit on the back burner. Though, a lot of i was brainstorming gave me ideas for As The World Crashes Down. It wasn't until the AWA pro deadline was creeping up that i decided to look into this idea some more. I was intending on using several anime much like ATWCD but i felt it would be "to easy" to do that. It felt like it wouldn't give the video the right touch. So with that i used one. Beyond the Clouds seemed like it would be perfect.

    I wanted the video to be about the hardships of life and how love will always overcome. "Even if today is when the world is going to end, I will still love you" gives me chills down my spine when i think about it. The world ending is like the worst possible event one could live through, but "I will still love you" feels like such a strong thing to say to someone. Sounds cheesy but Iím a cheesy guy -_-.

    The video itself doesn't really follow a linier story. There is a lot of what i would call "reflection" of the characters in the video. I tried to show this by using a film glow effect (also gives a ghosting like effect also) which after much testing seemed perfect to me.

    Here are the lyrics. i provided a translation I did. i'm not very good with japanese so i spent a good amount of time looking at other translations and also using my own judgement. some parts were really hard to do and this is by no means accurate. i do hope i'm close and i'm sorry if i'm completely worng -_-. anyway here they are:

    -------------
    この空の行く果てに
    まだ見えぬ 未来の波があり

    生きている いくつもの運命を越えて行く
    誰に教わり 誰に請うているのだろう

    人は尽きる命の合間に
    出会うことに 怯える間はない
    たとえ今日で この世界が終わろうとしていても
    君を愛するだろう

    木漏れ日が優しくて
    でもそれは 永遠ではなくて

    溢れ出る悲しみに 地球はもう蒼くなり
    言葉も枯れて ただ愛だけ残ればいいね

    人は尽きる命に惑わされ
    時に人に 辛くあたるよ
    たとえ今日で この世界が終わろうとしていても
    君を守るだろう

    君に光を届けたくて
    君の笑顔で癒して

    人は尽きる命の合間に
    出会うことに 怯える間はない
    たとえ今日で この世界が終わろうとしていても
    君を愛するだろう

    English Translation
    -------------
    Go to the end of the sky
    Where the waves of the future can't be seen

    For as long as we've lived, how many of us have risen above fate?
    I wonder who taught them and who will answer?

    For those who's life is going to end
    When the time comes, it's ok to be afraid
    Even if today is when the world is going to end
    I will still love you

    The Sun's light is gentle
    But it wonít last forever

    Even with so much sadness, the Earth stays green
    Words wither, and love is all that remains, right?

    For those who are confused that life must end
    It gets hard over time
    Even if today is when the world is going to end
    I will still protect you.

    You deliver a healing light
    with your smiling face

    For those who's life is going to end
    When the time comes, it's ok to be afraid
    Even if today is when the world is going to end
    I will still love you

    This was going to be my AWA Pro video, but I ran into a problem with the last 20-30 seconds of the video so I was unable to submit it. Should i have sent it to Masters? No. I really don't think this video is any good. To me, i like it, but i really don't expect anyone else to view it and like it the same way I do. With that said, I hope you at least enjoy it and if you like it, even better :P
