Like the title says, this is a remake of my 2003 AMV. I'm very fond of it, but the 2003 version had very bad source material which really hurts the AMV. At first I just wanted to remaster it with today's video quality, but as I started to do the actual editing I noticed again those several details that I disliked in the original concept. It didn't take long for this remastering project to change into a total remake.
Concept behind this one dates back to a personal experience when I was much much younger and was having a fever. Sleeping in that condition felt... weird. I was uncomfortable and felt slight anxiety, which affected the dreams, but not quite so that I'd call it a nightmare, just.. disturbing. I kept waking up and falling back to sleep and the border of dreamstate and being awake blurred a bit.
That is the feel I tried to reach with this AMV, and I think I got somewhat close to it.
Music choices came when I noticed how well the name track 'Sweet feather' would work with Angel's Egg to reach this dreamlike feel. As I listened the whole OST and saw that several other tracks also fit well with the anime, this project got out of hand and the result is what could be seen back in 2003, and now with this 2017 remake.
tl;dr: VERY different AMV from what you might be used to. Step into feverish dreamworld with Yoko Kanno's music if you dare.
