- SR-71 In My Mind
Song: I chose "In My Mind" by SR-71 for a couple of reasons. I downloaded "Naruto's World" by Einhander and really enjoyed it. I loved the song, so I searched up SR-71 and found "In My Mind". There don't seem to be many videos done to this song, so I decided to go ahead and use it.
Make this moment last
Forever and a day
Watching you drive by
Not letting you drive away
Can you see me ?
Can you see me?
trying to wave you down tonight
'Cause I need to see you one more time
You'll be there in my mind
In my dreams you can hide
And every night I'm gonna bring you back to life
They're in my mind
An angel bathed in light
Telling me everything's gonna be alright
If I can just fall asleep tonight
Lonely is the feeling
I can't comprehend
So I'm skipping to the last page
To see how this will end
Have you ever felt so helpless
When the walls built to protect us
Suddenly are gone
And you hate everything that's breathing
The life you're used to cheating
Has finally caught on
Commentary: I'm probably the last person on the planet that got into "Naruto". I started watching it in August and have been through the series twice now. My favorite character is Sasuke, even flawed as he is, so naturally I had to do a video with him. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this video, although there are a few areas that drive me a bit mad because I tried to fix them and couldn't without dismantling the video. =P So, anyway, here's what's probably the billionth "Naruto" AMV. This is my first attempt at using Adobe Premiere Pro, by the way. A warning. xD
0 - :32: Sort of a melancholy beginning to the song, so I figured I'd start it off with the Valley of the End, since it's all rainy and mucky and Naruto and Sasuke look like they're about to drop dead. Went well with the music, I think. From there...just random Team 7-ness.
:32 - :46: I think I failed miserably at this section, but I'm stubbornly clinging to it because it took me an age. I had subtitling problems (had to do some weird stuff with the footage to make the subtitles disappear...bah) and there's just an issue with the older "Naruto" episodes just not being quite as "clean" looking as the later ones, so the source material looks a bit ragged here and there. Sorry 'bout that. ^_^; Anyway...random Sasuke moments with his team/friends.
:46 - 1:30: Okay, this first section belongs to Naruto's attempt to keep Sasuke from leaving to train with Orochimaru. The lyrics seemed to fit that very well, since he tried his best to knock some sense into Sasuke. It didn't work, but even after that ugly fight, Naruto's main concern was just getting another chance to get Sasuke back. He's such a good buddy. =D
1:30 - 1:46: This section seemed to fit Sakura, since she's quite "between" these two (ie: Sakura loves Sasuke, Naruto loves Sakura). Naruto promised Sakura he'd bring Sasuke back with him, so that's what this part is about. Some timing issues here, but I'll be damned if I could get it synched properly. My apologies. -_-
1:54 - 2:50: This second section is Sakura's, since these lyrics seem to fit a lot of what happened with her and Sasuke. "Lonely is the feeling I can't comprehend" reminded me a lot of their conversation in Episode 3 where Sasuke tells her she has no concept of what true solitude is because she still has her family...so there's that. And then the rest fit that infamous parting scene where Sasuke leaves Konoha and Sakura meets him on the way out. A couple of synching issues here, too, but I did this video in sections (6, to be exact) and for some reason the timing was off when I went to put them all together and fixing it would have meant a torture I cannot describe. So I chose to allow it to be off by a half-second or so. =P
2:50 - 3:22: This deals with Sasuke's family, as well as his anger issues. Actually it was this section of lyrics that made me want to do this video. I thought they described the situation quite perfectly. ^_^
3:22 - 3:32: Heh...I sort of like this section which is why I left it alone, even thought part of me feels like it's a trainwreck. That bit of Shuriken acrobatics is a mixture of Sasuke and Itachi, which I wanted to do since Sasuke always wanted to catch up with Itachi, and I thought it was kind of neat that he got to where he was able to "mirror" Itachi's training, which is why I interchanged them here.
3:32 - 3:58: More issues with Itachi. I've always thought it was kinda weird how Itachi was such a sweet older brother...and then he suddenly turned into a complete bastard.
4:11 - 4:15: This is a very quick montage of the team that went after Sasuke when he left Konoha. Didn't think I should leave them out.
4:15 - 5:10: Lots of randomness...Sasuke fighting...mixture of Sasuke, Naruto, and Sakura, and the end. Some timing issues here, too, regrettably, but I'm happy with it for the most part. Also an editing problem for about half a second, but I had to leave it alone, unfortunately. I'd have had to remove that one clip and I liked it where it was. Ah, well. Nothing's perfect. ^_^
