This AMV has been premiered at Japan Expo AMV Contest 2010 and got 2nd place.
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 lip synch foreground/background effect and removing credits. 60 fps is also time consuming and is always a huge technical challenge.

Bakemonogatari is a weird anime with stunning graphics at times. I managed to watch episode 1 and 2 and I gave up during the opening of the third one. This anime makes absolutely no sense to me and is just exhausting to watch… but it has some pretty pictures.
I mixed the Original version of Tonight by Yuksek with the “The Bewitched Hands On The Top Of Our Heads Cover” version. I altered the pitch to have female vocals on the middle part of the video.
