This is it! My first Pokemon AMV, Mewtwo AMV to be precise! I gave it the name "The Original" and there are quite a few meanings behind that name). I'll let you guess by yourselves.
I got the idea for this AMV more than a year ago! It was at the time of E3 2012 when I watched Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 debut trailer and heard the music that was playing in the video. I loved every second of it and suddenly got an idea about creating an AMV to that music and I just knew it's gonna be about Mewtwo. I thought the music fits Mewtwo extremely well.
Then there was M16 announcement with later reveal of Mewtwo being there. I was really happy to know that (more footage for me to use) so I had to delay the creation of my AMV for more than a year until after M16 comes out. Looking back now, I know there was no need to delay the AMV because Mewtwo in M16 turned out to be a completely different character. It even had female voice... I decided NOT to use any stuff from M16 and use only the footage from M01 to give tribute to the Original Mewtwo (darn, I gave you one of the meanings xD). So, there's only footage from the first movie (and 2 scenes from the special Mewtwo Returns, which is a direct continuation of M01 story).
I made this surprisingly fast, in about 3 weeks (not working on it every day). I placed most of the scenes on the video track in 3 days and then I was just working on the beginning of the video and on effetcs and transitions.
This Mewtwo AMV turned out to be exactly how I imagined it to be when I got the idea to make it! I love the way it looks and I hope you'll love it too!
Here's the story for the AMV:
...Where am I? Is there anyone else?... Am I alone here?
What is happening? No, Ai, please, don't leave me alone there! Don't disappear!...
I am all alone again...What is this capsule I'm in? For how long have I been in there? And who are all these people? I don't like the way they are looking at me. What am I?
..they said they created me. Why did they do that? What is my purpose in life? Is there any place for me in the world?
...they said I'm a result of some experiment. I am nothing but a tool in their research..What did they do to Ai?! Those people...They will pay for what they've done!...
...Who is that man? He says I'm his partner and that we should help each other...Looks like he's lying too. I am nothing but a tool for him, a weapon of destruction. Liar, betrayer! They are all the same!... I will show him my power!
This creature...Mew! The one I was created from. Unlike me, he has a place in this world. Let's see how powerful it is! To fight Mew and find my place in this world - that's my purpose in life!...
...My name is Mewtwo. I am...the Original.
