  • Comments: TECHNICAL ASPECTS: 35 hours and five minutes of effort. Tons of effects, sweat, and laborous lip sync. It was worth it. I have one ripple effect, one clip that's flippe dupside down, I fooled with brightness and contrast to make it look darker(like night), and played around with clip speeds for the first time in my life. There are fades, and one small transparency that probably isn't worth mentioning. I did an "echo" effect. I did image pan, directional blurs. It turned out great. I killed and revived a DVD in the process of it all.... I also compressed it with XviD instead of DivX for the first time in my life, as well. Lucky me, the whole thing fit on Tripod at a mere 17.5ish MB. The best quality of an AMV at 17.5ish MB you will ever find. I hope you enjoy.

    STORY ASPECTS: If you've seen the original Identity trailer, forget it. This isn't based on it. At all. Well, okay, I copied two scenes. But that was it. No text effects, nothing. I took the audio, and just made it all up as I went along. It turned out very good. The casting was done well(Many thanks to WuWu for helping me figure out who's who), and the lip sync worked great. Think of this as an alternate reality video, because it has absolutely nothing to do with the anime. In fact, this video DOES contain atleast one spoiler for the anime (In the very beginning, too) but you won't catch on because it goes by pretty fast, and it's a trailer anyway, so.....
    Also, I treated this as an AMV with a story that ends, and not just a trailer for the movie. So, if you can't tell who's the "Identity" by the end of the trailer... There's something wrong with you.
    Note: Yahiko is narrating the story. It begins with him recalling what has happened, so, in most the lines where he talks, it goes back to that same scene, to show that he actually is narrating the story..

    That's all I can say. I hope you enjoy! ^-^ Please leave an opinion.
