This AMV has been premiered at Japan Expo AMV Contest 2010 and got 2nd place. I actually don’t have much to say about this AMV besides that it was my last AMV made with Auriga and I’ll never try to make a 720p@60 project with 2 GB RAM ever again !
Pretty pictures with neat music, that’s my thing. Most of the AMV has a 2.20 aspect ratio because most of the anime is like that. I had the idea of switching to 1.78 during the middle part to increase the contrast with the rest of the video. I didn’t make a “making of” video for this one since there isn’t much to show although there was a lot of work on removing credits and lip synch foreground/background effect. 60 fps is also time consuming and is always a huge technical challenge.
I managed to watch episode 1 and 2. I kinda wanted to kill myself during the opening of episode 3, so I gave up. This anime is totally mindfuck, boring, makes absolutely no sense and is just exhausting to watch… but it has some pretty pictures.
Yuksek – Tonight
I mixed the Original version with the “The Bewitched Hands On The Top Of Our Heads Cover” version. I altered it a bit to have female vocals on the middle part of the video. I also added e few special effects. The mix was entirely made with Premiere.
