    ~Intro: 01.Disappoinment
    +/- This is my first video "Disappointment" - It belongs to a series of videos (I am planning to make) called the: -=[...k.-..m.......-.Series]=- Disappointment, is Part 01.
    (firstly, i know we ALL hate "alt-codes" - but i wanted to do something that stood out from the rest of the videos on here. *hopes it worked*)

    ~Story: Originally this video had a deeper meaning. But i found it too hard to express with such limited footage. Now i've decided to slightly alter the storyline and explore how each of the 3 main character's from Silent Hill 2 holds their own form of disappointment inside. See if you can decypher.
    (The deeper meaning was me trying to express how i had let my ex-gf down so many times. Its probably subconsciously still there - but i did try to change it)

    Picture:
    Maria disappointed in James not being able to protect her, care for her and help her.
    Mary disappointed in James' indecisive nature and for the obvious reason.
    James disappointed in himself, mary's feebleness and the false reality he's created.

    ~Effects:
    Yes i'm aware there is enough effects in this video to sink Asia. However this was (obviously) deliberate. but for another reason. I wanted people not so much to focus on Silent Hill 2. But to focus on an alternate way of looking at SH2. If the clips aren't the same then it doesn't look the same (hint hint) - This is why you will be hardpressed to find a scene that has not been doctored unless i intentionally left it undoctored for you to see it direct. Also. Silent Hill 2 is a very Greay and Dark Red game. The combination is impressive but does not suit this song. The colours i associate with this song are Red's, Oranges', (Some Bits: Light Purple) Black's and White's. Those Light effects are there to creat a different more angry mood.

    ~Equipment:
    +My New Computer (hehe) - its a nice machine!
    +Notepad!
    +Adobe After Effects 6.5
    +Hearts (While Rendering)
    +Virtual Dub
    +FRAPS
    +Windows Media Encoder (For encoding Silent Hill 2 clips) - i know WMV is crap - but this has a NEW high definition feature. So it looks rather good.

    ~Song/Lyrics:
    - Passive, is one of my most favourite songs of all time, (Number 12 in fact) - In this video its really about the game more then the song. (though they almost go hand in hand) - I've always thought this song suited SH2 immensly. The lyrics do match a lot of the story (from james' perspective)

    Dead as dead can be
    The doctor tells me
    But I just can't believe him
    Ever the optimistic one
    I'm sure of your ability
    To become my perfect enemy

    Wake up and face me
    Don't play dead 'cause maybe
    Someday Ill walk away and say
    You disappoint me
    Maybe you're better off this way

    Leaning over you here
    Cold and catatonic
    I catch a brief reflection
    Of what you could and might have been
    It's your right and your ability
    To become my perfect enemy

    Wake up
    (Why cant you?)
    And face me
    (Come on now)
    Don't play dead
    (Dont play dead)
    'Cause maybe
    (Because maybe)
    Someday
    (Someday)
    Ill walk away and say
    You disappoint me
    Maybe you're better off this way

    Maybe you're better off this way (x3)
    You're better off this (x2)
    Maybe you're better off...

    Wake up
    (Why can't you?)
    And face me
    (Come on now)
    Don't play dead
    (Dont play dead)
    'Cause maybe
    (Because maybe)
    Someday
    (Someday)
    Ill walk away and say
    You fucking disappoint me
    Maybe your better off this WAY!

    Go ahead and play dead
    (GO!)
    I know that you can hear this
    (GO!)
    Go ahead and play dead
    (GO!)

    Why can't you turn and face me?
    (WAKE UP!)
    Why can't you turn and face me?
    (WAKE UP!)
    Why can't you turn and face me?
    (WAKE UP!)
    Why can't you and face me?
    (GO!)
    You fucking disappoint me

    Passive-aggressive bullshit...

    ~(Sorry about the language - i don't usually like swearing in music - But in this case it expresses a lot of emotion - and would sound terrible *"You REALLY REALLY Disappointment"* - yeah i'll take that seriously - lol)~

    ~Conclusion:
    -Mainly this video is for fans of Silent Hill 2, But its still good if you don't know anything about it, it should be ok! - please check it out! And feedback is appreciated as i always try to provide all videos i watch with an opinion (though i'm slipping a little behind now) - Anyway its definately my best, and pretty much my only vid. Thanks to everyone who helped me out, Vicbond007 and Infinity Squared and The rest of the Amvience Crew! you guys are legends! And helped me out a lot!
