  • Comments: WARNING, BEEP, BEEP! Not an action video.

    I like to create AMVs around a central theme, and this video is nothing different. The central themes of this video are Religion, Sexual Desire, and Identity. These themes are woven around several minuets, with are connected together by Lain herself.

    This is my heaviest special effects video to date (not that that really takes much). Most of the effects are pretty obvious and should stand out without me pointing them out. The only one that I wish to point out and you would never notice unless you compared the original footage with my video. This effect happens at 3:51. Here I wanted Lainís sister to be looking at her own soul, but there wasnít any such scene in the original footage, though there was a scene in which Lain sees it. I was able to mask out the spirit and place into the scene seamlessly, therefore creating my own scene. Nothing new for you technical wizards, but it was a breakthrough for me nonetheless. BTW it is supposed to be grainy at the end. ;)

    I have also gone back to using mixed media, just as I did in my video Angst. To this end, I have integrated the original Losing My Religion video and the Device footage that was included in the extras of Lain. I also attempted to have them interact to a certain extent with the Lain footage.

    Please leave an Op or a t least a quick comment; especially if you notice a technical error. My beta testers and I have caught quite a few, but Iím certain there are more! If you would like to exchange Ops, then just PM me and I will happy to do so.

    Losing My Religion by REM

    Life is bigger
    It's bigger than you
    And you are not me
    The lengths that I will go to
    The distance in your eyes
    Oh no I've said too much
    I set it up

    That's me in the corner
    That's me in the spotlight
    Losing my religion
    Trying to keep up with you
    And I don't know if I can do it
    Oh no I've said too much
    I haven't said enough
    I thought that I heard you laughing
    I thought that I heard you sing
    I think I thought I saw you try

    Every whisper
    Of every waking hour I'm
    Choosing my confessions
    Trying to keep an eye on you
    Like a hurt lost and blinded fool
    Oh no I've said too much
    I set it up

    Consider this
    The hint of the century
    Consider this
    The slip that brought me
    To my knees failed
    What if all these fantasies
    Come flailing around
    Now I've said too much
    I thought that I heard you laughing
    I thought that I heard you sing
    I think I thought I saw you try

    But that was just a dream
    That was just a dream
