    MindWarp 2002 Fall/Winter AMV Contest -- *Best Drama*

    -[]---[]---[]---[]---[]---[]---[]---[]---[]---[]---[]-

    Greetings,

    This is my second AMV. For the anime, I chose Cowboy Bebop. The song is a self-edited (for time) version of "Still Loving You" by the Scorpions with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (original version is 7:30 -- mine is 4:50). It can be found on the album "Moment of Glory", which was released in 2000. I used DVDs for the source, so visual quality is not bad at all ^^. I put a lot of effort into this; spending about 70 hours over a period of two weeks from start to finish. Much of this time was spent on perfecting the timing and beat synchronization, while trying not to make it "mechanical". I tend to shy away from using many special effects (i.e. prefabricated effects) in my AMVs, as I believe they detract from the video unless implemented well and for a reason. With this AMV I wanted to show the darker side of Bebop, focusing entirely on the struggles of Spike and Julia. I felt that "Still Loving You" fit quite well, as it is such an emotional and dynamic song.

    The AMV is currently being hosted through an FTP I set up on my computer (which is on a multi-T1 connection) and also being showcased (with a mirror download) by the good folks at Dragon Ball Arena (www.dragonballarena.com) -- so downloading it shouldn't be a problem. If you find that the link to my ftp doesn't work or is extremely slow, it's most likely because the filter on our firewall is misbehaving -- so I would recommend trying the indirect mirror site (if the indirect link isn't working, try refreshing your browser -- my AMV should be located towards the bottom; third down) . I'm always open to opinions, so if you take the time to leave one, it will be greatly appreciated (I always leave a "creator's response" on opinions ^^). Lyrics (edited to my version) can be found below.

    Enjoy!

    Time... it needs time...
    To win back your love again
    I will be there... I will be there...
    Love... only love...
    Can bring back your love someday
    I will be there... I will be there...

    Fight... babe, I'll fight...
    To win back your love again
    I will be there... I will be there...
    Love... only love...
    Can break down the wall someday
    I will be there... I will be there...

    If we'd go again
    All the way from the start
    I would try to change
    The things that killed our love
    Your pride has built a wall, so strong
    That I can't get through
    Is there really no chance
    To start once again
    I'm loving you...

    Try... baby try...
    To trust in my love again
    I will be there... I will be there...

    Love... our love...
    Shouldn't be thrown away
    I will be there... I will be there...

    If we'd go again
    All the way from the start
    I would try to change
    The things that killed our love
    Yes, I've hurt your pride, and I know
    What you've been through
    You should give me a chance
    This can't be the end...
    I'm loving you...

    I'm loving you...

    The version I added to the local server is Xvid and much sharper than the DivX encode.
