This is, in terms of skills over time, my favorite by far of the AMVs I've made. It's the only video of its vintage (Shin Hats #5) slated for remake with better source, because the combination of X (a movie I still like, despite the TV series, the manga, and associated slagging against the feature) with the most thrashing song Hypocrisy has ever done (with the possible exception of "Carved Up", which also found its way into a SH vid), just dominates all the way down to the ground. If only I had started working in MPEG2 back then instead of MPEG1, this video would have found some conventions to plow under by now.
Warning: damn heavy spoilers. Watch the movie first.
This video was on Red Wolf's compilation disc at AWA 8.
Shin Hats Self-Grade: A. This is not a completely optimized vid, but I can't even think of any real problem spots.
Stats: #clips: 76. avg length: 3.68 sec. total time: 14 hours.
After nearly four years of claiming that this video would be remade from proper source, it actually was redone from DVD in the spring of 2005. The resulting video is slightly different and can be found as SH097, "swords cross enn Midgarth".
There are a few additional notes here, including about how the video happened to come to be remade.
