    - The unvailaing: When the anime's were first unvailed i was quite worried... I had not seen any of the anime's and had only heard of bleach... I watched most of them (except mai hime - i didn't really like that) - I was originally thinking of doing School Rumble - to Baz - Smile To Shine... But, well i wasn't happy with that choice. Most of my songs are depressing songs... Or metal, punk, instrumental or techno. So it wasn't easy to match these animes. Somehow i stumbled across "I Am" by killing heidi - A song my best friend gave me awhile back, i got sick of it coz my sister over-played it and i never really liked it that much. But i thought it matched what i'd seen perfectly. So did andrew. It was the one. (plus i do admit to averting my attention to the grand final, coz Sydney's my team and i had to support them) (GO US WE WON!!) (72 YEARS!!!) ... ahem...

    - Firstly, The title "Rukia Is" - I'm aware is kinda lame, Please i need title suggestions!! At the contest i just left it as "I am" but decided this was boring... So please if you have a cool title, TELL ME!

    - Secondly, This is just my second "Real" AMV - So well i'll tell you what i think. In chronological order (oooh big words) - Well for a start i love the intro, the letter with the rolling effect... It is probably my favourite scene!! I made that at about 1am, by a bit of a fluke... But EVERYTHING was going right for me that night. I don't think i encountered the word "ERROR" once... I was very very pleased. My new computer seems VERY stable.

    - The 1st chorus - (without words) - i didn't think it was a chorus but my cuzzin insisted it was... well he at least plays an instrument so he knows what he's doing!
    Yeah but anyway, its not really in-time nor has anything to do with the rest of the vid. But its actionative and looks cool.

    - Voice syncing!!! - I was criticised and complimented on this. Personally i like the voice-sync, but i do think it could've been done better. But then i think to myself, wow i only did this in one night. That was pretty amazing. But the truth behind the VS, is that simply i put a bunch of clips in and by complete accident, it was almost in sync. So i fiddled for a few minutes and it just worked. I was soooo happy that it did, coz i didn't have that much footage of Rukia (yes i didn't know her name at that stage *now i have researched* lol - So using the VS meant i had much more footage to work with (and ultimately - finish the video)

    - Strobing or Flashin - This was the first time i'd used and again i was complimented and criticised. My main goal of the flashing was to achieve something i had to ditch. Here's what was going to happen:
    ~As you may notice the first ""Chorus"" Is in B&W, this was intentional, you may then notice the flashes are white from then on. Intentional again. Then they change to yellowy colour to enter the "Green Chorus" (not really intentional - but i decided to make something of it) - The yellow was intentional. Then, the next verse was going to have purple, blue or black flashing - then the lead-in (with light blue flashes) - would lead into a "Blue Chorus" - After that i was thinking probably purple or red flashes. Then for the last build up Red or black - And finally for the last chorus multi-coloured. Just to have a random cool colour theme. (But i ran out of time so it looks a little weirdish now)

    - Effects in general - I understand there was a fair few in this vid my fave FX moment was probably the moving face bit (oh and if that looks like its not in sync - it is, (its exactly the same as before) just the blurs and ray-length's make it look a little off...which would probably imply its not in sync...hmmm lol. But yeah, i didn't do anything too extravagent - I was going to do some masking but again, ran out of time.

    - MY favourite moment - Though its rather stupid i can't help but laugh every time i watch it. After the first "I know, I know, I know, I know, what you'd say....." - then the snare hits, and it zooms in on ichigo (i think)'s face. lol, it cracks me up. I dunno why. oh and i love the bit where it goes
    "I'd love to take you out of your skin,
    I'd switch us around and put you back in"
    And she takes him out of his skin, gives her powers to him, then ... plays with his face??
    lol, Just to show you what looked good at 5am doesn't make sense when u see it late on sunday night to show ur family. (But the first bit was very nicely done - kinda hidden - but i like it)

    [Lyrics]:
    i know, i know, i know, i know what u'd say,
    i know, i know, i know, i know all the games u play,
    i am i am i am i am not afraid, coz,
    i know i know i know i know wat u'd say,

    i feel it, it's coming it's here if you want it

    and i am out on my own moving in shadow,
    no body know's who i am,
    standing alone and it's me but you can't see who i am.

    i like to rip you out of your skin,
    i switch us around and put u bak in, and,
    i know, i know, i know, i know what u'd say
    but it couldn't be any other way

    coz, i feel it, it's coming it's here if you want it

    and i am out on my own moving in shadow,
    no body know's who i am,
    standing alone and it's me but you can't see who i am.

    (whispered)
    so close but you don't know, and it's me but you can't see,
    so close but you don't know, and it's me but you can't see,
    so close but you don't know, and it's me but you can't see,
    so close but you don't know, and it's me but you can't see,

    (Spoken)
    so close but you don't know, it's me but you can't see,
    so close but you don't know, it's me but you can't see,

    i feel it, it's coming it's here if you want it,

    and i am out on my own,
    moving in shadow,
    no body know's who i am,
    standing alone and it's me but you can't see who i am.

    so close but you don't know,
    and it's me but you're never gonna see who i am,
    so close but you don't know,
    and it's me but you just can't see who i am.

    The quality has dropped a bit since the screening - keeping it under 100 meg was hard. But you'll only notice it on the flashes and the general detail, otherwise its quite bareable!

    Oh and apparently you should leave an opinion!
    I guess i'd like to think of what you thought about it!
    Fell free to complain, i'll probably agree! lol

    **UPDATE 2**
    The DIRECT link is now available. This link is better quality and smaller. But is only available for a limited time. I recommend still getting the mpg.
    And if you download directly, you can still leave an opinion *smiles*
