    **Winner in the Best of Show catagory at Jacon 2008**

    Well I got the idea the to make after hearing the great song "Prayer of the Refugee" by Rise Against on the car radio. Busou Renkin immediatly flashed into my head as a good choice of anime. I was still in the middle of my prvious BR AMV though, so I put this one to the side for a while. After finishing that AMV I tried to make this the first AMV that I would use After Effects with... Yeah that plan didn't work out so well. I ended up getting overwhelmed After Effects and just took a break for a long time. months passed. Jacon 2008 started it AMV contest submissions, and I wasn'r planning on going. Then I decided to change my mind and go anyway, even without being in the contest. I checked out the site only to find out IT'S A WEEK BEFORE CONTEST SUBMISSION DEADLINE!!! Knowing that I decided, "what the hell I'll go for it", and scrambled to finish the rest of this AMV within that time. With only a week to get it done and rendered, and college finals happening that very same week, it was pure torture. I made it though, and almost cried tears of relief when I finished. I honestly did not think I would win Best of Show though. I was so suprised, but extremely happy. That made every eye bleeding keybord cramping minute worth it.


    As for the AMV itself, I wanted to make this a very fast paced Action video, while keeping to the heart and story the lyrics and series told. I'm quite proud of the result.


    Effects:

    One interesting effects I wanted to point out was at 2:24 where Kazuki and Captine Bravo both spew out blood froom thier mouths. The scene were origionally completely separrate, but I didn't want to dedicate more than one second to it, so I combined the two using Adobe premiere's transparecy option. It's not the prettist edit so I figured I would get that out of the way.

    Anyway: I hope you all enjoy this AMV! ^_^

    Lyrics

    Warm yourself by the fire, son,
    And the morning will come soon.
    Iíll tell you stories of a better time,
    In a place that we once knew.

    Before we packed our bags
    And left all this behind us in the dust,
    We had a place that we could call home,
    And a life no one could touch.

    Donít hold me up now,
    I can stand my own ground,
    I donít need your help now,
    You won't let me down, down, down!

    Donít hold me up now,
    I can stand my own ground,
    I donít need your help now,
    You will let me down, down, down!

    Down!

    We are the angry and the desperate,
    The hungry, and the cold,
    We are the ones who kept quiet,
    And always did what we were told.

    But weíve been sweating while you slept so calm,
    In the safety of your home.
    Weíve been pulling out the nails that hold up
    Everything youíve known.

    Donít hold me up now,
    I can stand my own ground,
    I donít need your help now,
    You will let me down, down, down!

    Donít hold me up now,
    I can stand my own ground,
    I donít need your help now,
    You will let me down, down, down!

    So open your eyes child,
    Letís be on our way.
    Broken windows and ashes
    Are guiding the way.

    Keep quiet no longer,
    Weíll sing through the day,
    Of the lives that weíve lost,
    And the lives weíve reclaimed.

    Go!

    Donít hold me up now,
    I can stand my own ground,
    I donít need your help now,
    You will let me down, down, down!

    Donít hold me up now,
    I can stand my own ground,
    I donít need your help now,
    You will let me down, down, down!

    Donít hold me upÖ
    (I donít need your help, Iíll stand my ground)
    Donít hold me upÖ
    (I donít need your help)
    No! No! No!
    Donít hold me up!
    (I donít need your help, Iíll stand my ground)
    Donít hold me up!
    (I donít need your help, Iíll stand my ground)
    Donít hold me down, down, down, down, down!
