***************** SPOILER WARNING ****************
This video pretty much requires that you have seen and understood Neon Genesis Evangelion and the movie End of Evangelion. Since the ending can be confusing I'm going to explain exactly what I was going after below. Which means that not only is the video a spoiler, so is the description for the video. If you haven't seen, or have seen and didn't understand, Evangelion then you should probably stop reading here.
There's one thing that always bothered me about the End of Eva, why the hell did Shinji reject the Human Instrumentality Project? He was an annoying freak full of self loathing, hell earlier in the movie he wouldn't take action even to save his own life, so why the hell would he choose to keep his identity? One day while going over Eva footage for a different project I happened to have winamp playing random songs in the background. Eclipse came on and it fit, the song explained Shinjis choice to my satisfaction so I made a video to it. The intro is supposed to be Shinji entering the Instrumentality Project and the rest is following his thoughts while in it. To be perfectly honest I'm not all that happy with how it turned out, it relies to much on knowing the anime, it's entirely to literal with it's lyric sync, and like anything based on the non-eva release the video quality sucks balls. If I had my choice I would actually delete it off local and try hard to pretend I never made this.
