  • Comments: This is my second video. I chose the song Happy Child by Tweaker, as I feel that the lyrics and music fit Trigun very well. Overall, I am very pleased with the results.

    In this video, I attempted to tell a story. Basically, the video is about what was going on inside Vash\'s head as he was on his way to confront Knives. As he walks through the desert, he reflects on his past, and the events that brought him where he is right now. Finally in the last verse of the song he reaches Knives, and the rest of the video unfolds.

    I am very proud of this video, and I would really appreciate any feedback you can offer. Enjoy!

    A few side notes: while some scenes are very similar, I didnt use any scene twice. I also feel that the lyrics are fairly important to the video, so here they are:

    Happy Child
    I imagine my hands are clean
    I am revitalized by things unseen
    I begin a dialogue with the road
    toothless, hopeful, about to explode...

    how could I have ever been so lucky
    to wake up looking in her face
    and see the flowers she put Ďround the room
    britening an otherwise crumbling place

    she told me that jesus loves me
    but I never knew who jesus was
    some kid somewhere fucked up
    well isnít this what a savior does?

    donít cry
    donít feel
    donít die
    because death is not real
    itís good
    itís yours
    and it should come when things have run their course

    I wanted her melted up inside me
    all the tears and the smiles shed for me
    sheíd disappear to the world around me
    everything to be a powerful memory
    ...(so I could carry all that weíd been with me)

    so I brought her to the swamp she loved so well
    where I gently placed her in it
    I brought her soul to ease with kisses
    and I said to her as Iís about to begin it

    donít cry
    donít feel
    you wonít die
    because I donít think deathís real
    itís good
    itís mine
    and it should be
    at your heels all of the time

    and she said:

    ďand whereís the sky for me now? its good that she sings
    and who will take it down? the freedom it brings
    and drape it all around me her voice is my very head
    every cloud and cosmo for a gown?Ē

    Iím a good kid
    old style
    a happy child
    and Iím never going to have to do that again
    but if I want to, I can

    donít cry
    donít feel
    donít die
    because death is not real
    itís good
    itís ours
    like the sun
    like the worms
    like the wind
    like the flowers...
