This was supposed to be my masterpiece.
I am not often inspired, but inspiration beget this entire project. Emma struck such a chord with me that I shortened my AMV hiatus to make this video. I began working on it the night I finished watching the series and by 5:30 the next morning, had a complete first cut. The next nine months were spent painfully reworking it; dissecting the story, pulling clips apart, putting them back together, adding and removing things. I wanted it to be perfect. Yet inspite of all this work the video still has acute shortcomings.
There is too much story for the amount of song. The subtitles are needed to make sense of the story, but they get in the way, even though there aren't many of them. The clips move too slowly at some points and too quickly at others. Even though I have to nix more of the story for pacing reasons, taking anything out leaves large gaps in the plot and too little footage to cover the entire song.
Basically, I worked harder on this video than on any other, but it turned out worse than any other. I only uploaded it because I put so much effort into the stupid thing that I want people to see it, even though it's critically flawed. In due time I will start this project from scratch and make something better, but until that time comes, I have prelims to ace, a thesis to write, and the MCAT to study for.
This is my failed masterpiece. This is also my life, in the context of a different time.
Thank you for watching.
