First off: DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN EPISODE 25 OF FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST. SHOO.
This is my second Fullmetal Alchemist AMV and my first EVER on Adobe Premiere (which royally screwed me over whilst rendering but YAY! Layers and AVI-workable stuff!). I'm sure some of you remember the atrocity of my first FMA video which had very unorthodox ways of capturing footage and looked blurry. This one is clean and I used raws so you don't have a quarter of the screen covered. =)
This is also my second AMV that started and ended with a specific centeral character in mind. This is for Maes Hughes, a favorite character of mine who really deserved an AMV. It turned out bittersweet...well, the song is bittersweet to me anyways. It's one of my most favorite songs; I listen to it all the time and since someone had suggested it to me for Hughes (I asked the fm_alchemist community for song suggestions), I ran with the theme.
I want to thank the person who suggested it, the person who sent me a sample of the song, (I'm so sorry, I can't remember your names! I'll change this info with that stuff when I find it in the archieves...), my friends Betty and Sammich, who were awesome in beta'ing the video and last but certainly not least, Hork, for providing me with more than half the raw footage that I used. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, EVERYONE. I could not have done this without you guys.
-Dedicated to Maes Hughes, and of course, the fm_alchemist LJ community because you guys rock -
*Hughes spends too much time on the phone. It's a task to find footage with him not having a conversation on the phone. XD;
* IT TOOK ME NEARLY AS MUCH TIME TO TRY TO RENDER THIS AS TO ACTUALLY CREATE THE AMV. ARRRRGH. (so ignore the divX symbol there; otherwise you would have had a 860mb file instead of the 33.5 one that looks the same in quality. =D; )
* I make really dumb jokes and try too hard to add symbolism to match the music. har har.
