    Best Timing/Sync at AWA EXPO 2005
    8th on 58 at the FRENCH ANNUAL AMV CONTEST
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi all. Kwaichang and me are happy to introduce you our first collboration. After a try on Steamboy, we have decided to stop it and find an other idea for the "FRENCH AMV CONTEST 2005".
    So, I have had the idea to continue the beginning of kwaichang project. There is 3-4 months, kwaichang has begun an AMV on Cowboy bebop: the film with a song of his favourite artist, Bob Dylan: Things Have Changed.
    At the beginning, Kwaichang was a little surprising about my idea. In fact, the song last 5:16 min and he thought we haven't enough time to finish this video. After one day of reflection, we have decided to finally make this video (and today we don't regret it ;-) ).
    -----------------------------------------

    So, now, the organisation of the project:

    Kwaichang:
    - Intro [0:00 - 0:21]
    - 1st verse + Instrumental [0:21 - 1:45]
    - 3st verse + Intrumental + beginning of the 4th verse [3:00 - 4:45]
    - "it's all over now baby blue" :p

    Dark-Krystal:
    - 2st verse + Instrumental[1:46-2:59]
    - Ending of the last verse [4:46-5:30]

    Kwaichang has created some transitions and has made final editing and encode of the video.

    Lyrics & French translation:

    -Original Song:

    A worried man with a worried mind
    No one in front of me and nothing behind
    There's a woman on my lap and she's drinking champagne
    Got white skin, got assassin’s eyes
    I'm looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
    I'm well dressed, waiting on the last train
    Standin' on the gallows with my head in a noose
    Any minute now I'm expecting all hell to break loose
    People are crazy and times are strange
    I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
    I used to care, but things have changed

    (instrumental)

    This place ain't doin' me any good
    I'm in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
    Just for a second I thought I saw something move
    Gonna take dancing lessons, do the jitterbug rag
    Ain't no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
    Only a fool in here would think he got anything to prove
    Lot of water under the bridge, lot of other stuff too
    Don't get up gentlemen I'm only passing through
    People are crazy and times are strange
    I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
    I used to care, but things have changed.

    (Instrumental)

    I've been walkin forty miles of bad road
    If the Bible is right the world will explode
    I'm trying to get as far away from myself as I can
    Some things are too hot to touch
    The human mind can only stand so much
    You can't win with a losing hand
    Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
    Putting her in a wheelbarrow and wheeling her down the street
    People are crazy and times are strange
    I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
    I used to care, but things have changed

    (Instrumental)

    I hurt easy, I just don't show it
    You can hurt someone and not even know it
    The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
    Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
    All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
    I'm in love with a woman that dont even appeal to me
    Mr. Jinx and miss Lucy they jumped in the lake
    I'm not that eager to make a mistake
    People are crazy and times are strange
    I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
    I used to care, but things have changed.

    (instrumental)

    Translation:

    Un homme inquiet et son esprit inquiet
    Personne devant moi, et rien derrière
    J’ai une femme sur les genoux, elle boit du champagne
    Elle a la peau blanche et des yeux d’assassin
    Je regarde là-haut les cieux de saphir teints
    Bien habillé, j'attends le dernier train
    Debout sous la potence, la tête dans le nœud
    A chaque instant je m’attends à voir l’enfer entier dévaler
    Les gens sont dingues et les temps sont bizzares
    Je suis enfermé à double tour, je suis hors de portée
    Ca me préoccupait mais bien des choses ont changé.

    (instrumental)

    Cet endroit ne me fait que du mal
    Je ne suis pas dans la bonne ville, je devrais être à Hollywood
    L’espace d’une seconde j’ai cru voir quelque chose bouger
    Je vais prendre des leçons de danse, apprendre le jitterbug
    Coupe pas courts, j’vais m’habiller en travelo
    Seul un idiot penserait qu’il a quelque chose à prouver ici
    Beaucoup d’eau a coulé sous le pont, beaucoup d’autres choses aussi
    Ne vous levez pas Messieurs, je ne fais que passer
    Les gens sont dingues et les temps sont bizzares
    Je suis enfermé à double tour, je suis hors de portée
    Ca me préoccupait mais bien des choses ont changé.

    (instrumental)

    J’ai marché quarante bornes sur ce mauvais chemin
    Si la Bible dit vrai le monde va exploser
    J’essaie de me tenir le plus loin possible de moi-même
    Il y a des choses trop chaudes pour qu’on les touche
    Il y a des limites à ce que peut supporter l’esprit humain
    Tu ne peux pas gagner si ta main perd
    J’ai envie de tomber amoureux de la première femme que je rencontre
    La mettre dans une brouette et lui faire descendre la rue
    Les gens sont dingues et les temps sont bizzares
    Je suis enfermé à double tour, je suis hors de portée
    Ca me préoccupait mais bien des choses ont changé.

    (instrumental)

    Je fais du mal facilement, mais je le montre pas
    On peut faire du mal à quelqu’un sans même s’en apercevoir
    Les soixante prochaines secondes pourraient sembler une éternité
    Je vais être très bas, je vais voler haut
    Toute la vérité du monde se résume à un gros mensonge
    Je suis épris d’une femme qui ne m’attire même pas
    M.Poissard et Miss Lucie ont sauté dans le lac
    Je ne suis pas si désireux de me tromper
    Les gens sont dingues et les temps sont bizzares
    Je suis enfermé à double tour, je suis hors de portée
    Ca me préoccupait mais bien des choses ont changé.

    (instrumental)

    General about our AMV:

    Our first purpose was to make a narrative video. We have made an important effort to create the best watch between lyrics and anime during all the video. I think we have used a lot of fantaisist sequences which aren't often chosen in other bebop videos. It just give a bit of originality and fun in our AMV. At the time of Instrumentaly passages in the song, we have used fight & action sequences to show a change of rythm. We have mainly used the sound of the guitar to make synchros, and the drum beats (sometimes) to make the change of sequences.

    So I hope you enjoy our video and don't hesitate to leave a comment abour our video !
    Thanks to watch it !
