  • Comments: BASICALLY:
    This is my favorite song in existence. When I first heard it, I was captivated by it. And for the longest time, had random things from video games/little anime inspiration to bring it to life, for what the song was worth to me... I guess I'm just passionate about it.
    So I took a abstract aproach at it. Well, just a tad abstract. Maybe 5%.
    It is the one song I can listen to when I'm happy, or sad. & still be content.
    My best work, technically as well as emotionally directed.
    I'm confident that you will like, which is my intent, and I hope you do.
    My main focus in this amv isn't to be "the best" of the best, though that's never my intention anyway, but to grab peoples hearts, and for them to tell me how it made them feel in opinions/emails. Overall, I want to know the effect. Though I'd love some self-improving tech notes on the vid as well. I spent a good few months on it. :D Re-did it at one point, too.
    My deepest apologies for the song being in japanese, as the english lyrics will be posted here for anyone who cares.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    SIDE NOTES:
    I thought of for example, some of the footage I used was of Tidus/Yuna. I wanted hear voice/feelings to be clear in this amv, because literally in both games (X and X-2) she never is outspoken or clear about her feelings, even though everyone secretly knows them about Tidus.
    But what about when he -had- to go for a few years? Leaving her with nothing but question, and what hope?Other than her falling on the floor, and whispering she loved him--what about her feelings? I took that into consideration. As for the Random insert of Cowboy Bebop in this amv, there was much motive behind it. I wanted him represent the person reminesing of keeping in touch with someone, as talked of in the translation lyrics, later on. I'll put a star (*) near this part which I speak in the lyrics so I can better address this.
    Also, for the FF8 footage. That random feather? That um, Rinoa hangs with in the beginning...the abstractness I talked of earlier comes into play here. e.e; Picture the feather....a letter.
    As for the the other FF8 scenes (i.e. Seifer and Squall sparring) I wanted this (abstract percentage talked of earlier!) to represent um...abit of the angst within the song.
    I can't really think of anything to address more. There's no really stand-out things.
    However if there's something you didn't understand why I put it there in the vid, leave a opinion(or email) and I'll respond.
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    LAST WORDS:

    I really hope you enjoy this, despite my hopefully not confusiong behind-notes on the amv.
    I worked hard to make it one of my best, because, it's my favorite song.
    Above all, enjoy, DANCE!

    Lyric time!

    Utada Hikaru - "Letters" [english translation]

    I walk out atop the warm sand, towards the seashore
    where sad news doesnít reach me.
    Even without you here, the sun rises Ė
    it is the beginning of one new day.

    As for the lottery ticket I chose today,
    I donít know where it leads.
    It is why, (despite) being lazy, I would work everyday.

    Ah on the sky in two hands... to the storm in the heart...
    Ah farewell to you... Ah on this seashore,
    a letter is always left.
    Ah even in dreams, even over the phone,
    Ah I want to hear your voice! Ah you, not being
    good at connecting, are always a letter lying around.

    *One occasionally forgets to keep in touch when busy,
    but it happens to everyone once or twice. *

    The elderly person I talked to today says that itís fine to be alone.
    Dubious me... Iím still in the process of thinking it through.

    Ah give a name to a flower, give a star a wish,
    Ah give me you. Ah what decorates this window sill
    is always a letter.
    Ah even only a little, even over your shirt,
    Ah I want to touch you. Ah What I remember of
    that last time was, "Iíll definitely return!"

    Ah Iíll give a peaceful place, a continuation to my dream,
    Ah a "Welcome back!" to you. Ah from somewhere
    in this world, even I'll keep sending to you.
    Ah even in dreams, even over the phone,
    Ah I want to hear your voice. Ah if you're not good at relating, then the next time you disappear, I donít need anything.

    Tell me that you'll never ever leave me
    Then you go ahead and leave me
    What the hell is going on
    Tell me that you really really love me
    Then you go ahead and leave me
    How the hell do I go on...
