  • Comments: This video has been in the making for about a year and a half now (although it sat around for about half of that time), and I consider it to be one of my best. I put a lot of thought into it.


    As soon as I heard this song, I instantly wanted to make an AMV for it. It's a very pretty song, and I thought I could make something different with it. LeAnn Rimes performed this song at the opening ceremony for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, so I felt Battle Athletes was a particularly fitting anime for it. The other animes I picked mainly just because they were pretty, and they had a lot of scenes with light in them. The video is about what the song is about: inspiration and finding inner strength.


    Flow was something I tried to focus on when I was editing this, same with finding scenes that portrayed the songs mood and its lyrics. I tried to carry the emotion across mainly through the scenes, but I did add several effects to make the video prettier and more flashy.

    There's one small section of lipsyncing near the beginning. It's a CG scene of Yuna singing, and it was pretty hard to work with... but right from the start, I pictured that scene being there, so I was determined to make it work. :)


    Have no fear when darkness falls
    'Cause there's a light that shines
    Within us all
    Although this world can turn so cold
    When we reach inside we find our warmth

    'Cause there's a flame that burns
    In every heart
    And it's the will we have
    That lights the spark


    Once in every lifetime
    There's a chance to stand apart
    We can show the world our very best
    Reveal what's in our heart
    So the story goes and glory
    Never will end
    Inspiration lights the fire within

    And if we fall
    We won't stay down
    We will get back up
    And use the strength we've found
    And we will rise
    Like champions
    Every obstacle
    We'll overcome

    [repeat chorus]

    And if we just stay strong
    Then our hearts will move us on

    [repeat chorus]

    In each heart there burns desire
    Inspiration lights the fire within
