I fail at coming up with good titles.
So naturally, what do you do when you have a serious Loveless video but you don't have a good title for it? You give it a one-word title that ends in "-less". :-P
Anyway! Finally back to releasing AMVs after two years without a new one.
I did not typo on the artist name. Not only did Lacara's version of "Everytime
We Touch" come out two years before Cascada's, but it's also significantly BETTER,
starting with the fact that it actually uses the ORIGINAL verses (none of this
"I still hear your voice when..." crap).
Look it up on Discogs.com if you don't believe me. I imported the CD maxi-single all the way from Germany; I should know. :-P
(By the way, if you liked this song, check out the 7-minute-long Clubmix; it's even better. Because it's not a radio edit, it doesn't have to rush its buildups and transitions.)
Loveless is a shamelessly shounen-ai series that makes no apologies for it; this video is a shounen-ai video (as if you couldn't tell from the screenshots). If you have something against shounen-ai, don't watch it.
This marks my first summer video that's actually longer than two minutes
(my first three were The NERV Evening News with Dan Rather,
Alternate Eva Opening: Eva Bebop, and
Waka Laka (for Osaka)), as well as my first time
ever using Adobe After Effects in an AMV.
However, due to the nature of a good deal of the Loveless spell battle footage, I was able to do all the masking with only Adobe Premiere Pro's keying effects (Luma Key, Screen, Multiply, etc.); I only used After Effects for the 3D sequence all the way at the end. ^_^
