- Above and Beyond Can't Sleep
This AMV, well, I was inspired by InfinitySquared's "M Drive 1.0"... I really like that video and I adored the song, so while looking for a song similar to it, I found this, Above and Beyond's "Can't Sleep."
The song is absolutely beautiful and it drew me in...I had recently started watching the Kara No Kyoukai movies at the time and I thought "Hay, I might be able to do something with this. =o"
I love the character Shiki, she's really very interesting. While she does seem to love Kokutou in her own secret way, she also hates him, wants to kill him, pushes him away, yet she won't let anyone else have him. That's kind of what I was going after with this video, even though for most, it just appears to be a random pretty "omg look awsm footage" video.
It was mainly an attempt to capture that whole complex relationship. She'll fight others who try to find their salvation with him to keep him for herself, yet when she has him, she pushes him away (Or tries to kill him =p)
Either way, yeah =p The video editing itself...well, the source is very pretty so I didn't feel the need for any real effects, although I did play with lighting and contrast quite a bit.
It was pretty fun to edit and I really do have to thank everyone who puts up with me as I work on these vidyas =p
Major thanks to Jay for editing the audio down for me, Batto! for pushing me to edit it in the beginning, and Ileia, André, Aesling and ZephyrStar for making me finish it =p
While I don't hate it, I'm content I guess. So yeah, enjoy =w=
