Two words...Self Indulgence

This AMV turned out to be a bit of a roller coaster ride for me.  There are times I think I'm crazy for making it and times where I'm really proud of it.

I think I made the basic idea work.  This is an AMV showing a more involved relationship between the characters, Kaworu and Rei.  It's a relationship that is totally nonexistent in the series.

I wish I could go into detail about this video, the inspiration behind it, making it and the whole story.  But there is just so much surrounding it that I don't even know where to begin.

I took things up a notch with this one and tried a few new tricks.  I attempted some lip-synch in Movie Maker and I edited some footage in Photoshop.  I'm especially happy with the beach scene and how the water still ripples despite the obvious change.

I was very nervous about making this available for public viewing.  I can still get a little uneasy about it sometimes.  Unlike my previous video, which was made to be fun, this one was actually made to be an emotional outlet for me.  I guess if I had to compare the feeling to something, it would be like letting someone read my diary.  No idea I've ever had before or after I completed this AMV has carried the same amount as emotional weight on my part.

Use your imagination as you watch.  That's pretty much all you can do.
