- Ben Folds Five Evaporated
The video will mostly be focused around Tenchi and his continous confusion about where he is and the events that take place around him. This will also be a tribute video to the Tenchi sagas, so expect the video to be pretty sentimental and have scenes with most of the characters (like "There Will Be an Answer").
"Evaporated" by Ben Folds Five is the ultimate depressing song.But at the same time it's also very beautiful and has a great bridge.Whenever I buy a CD, I tend to listen to the last song on the album first(why? I don't know). When I heard this song for the first time on their highly underrated "Whatever and Ever Amen" album, I knew that I had to make an AMV to spread it's excellence around.
lyrics wise, I think it'd fit Tenchi Muyo pretty well:
What I've kept with me
And what I've thrown away
And where the hell I've ended up
On this glary random day
Were the things I really cared about
Just left along the way
For being too pent up and proud
Woke up way too late
Feeling hung over and old
And the sun was shining bright
And I walked barefoot down the road
Started thing about my old man
It seems that all men
Wanna get into a car and go anywhere
Here I stand,
Sad & free
I can't cry and I can't see
What I've done
God...What have I done
So don't you know I'm numb, man
No I don't feel a thing at all
Cause its all smiles & business these days
and I am indifferent to the loss
I've faith that there's a soul
whose leading me around
I wonder if she knows
Which way is down...
I poured my heart out
I poured my heart out
Blind man on a canyon's edge
of a Panoramic scene
Or maybe I'm a kite
That's flying high & random
Dangling a string
Or slumped over in a vacant room
Head on a stranger's knee
I'm sure back home
They think I've lost my mind.
As far as the technical qualities go, it's quite good in my opinion. The picture and sound qualities are up to my usual standard, plus the action/editing is some of the best I've ever done. Next to "There Will Be an Answer" this is the best work I have to offer.
The video may bore some though. It hardly has any action in it and the song doesn't really pick up. I made this video because,well, I knew that many people wouldn't like it ^.^
This is more of a personal video for me. I created it out of the feelings and emotions I were experiencing at the time of it's production. Now don't let that get you thinking that I was lazy while creating it. I spent more time on this video than I did on any other video I've done.
If you see this video, please leave some feedback. I (and many others) enjoy knowing what others think about their work.
