Ta-da~! This is my new finished project, everyone! It was actually a spur-of-the-moment attempt to try something new after receiving some instruction from BioticAMVs (she's a sweetheart!!) about compositing modes and parent-child tracks in Sony Vegas.
Basically, I wanted to try some new effects and I had been thinking about working with this song for over a year. And thus, Thállein was born. This was meant to carry a theme of love -- something like what it feels to be in love, and to fall into love. The fear, the exhilaration, the confusion, the raw experience. Young love. Pure love. The very early love of teenagers and hopeless romantics.
Thállein made its debut at Anime Weekend Atlanta during the Professional Awards competition, meaning that my editor peers voted for its based upon not who edited it, but upon its merit as a video. Taking two awards home from this contest is a huge honor, and I want to say thank you to each and every peer that voted. That means so much to me, to know that my skill has come this far QwQ.
Also, small trivia, "Thállein" is the ancient Greek term meaning "to flourish," or to grow and be fruitful. This is also the name for the muse of comedy and idyllic poetry :)
