Video: The Legend of Black Heaven
Audio: Ambient (Barcode Brothers)
Shortly before the Anime North 2008 AMV Contest deadline, I didn't have
anything done. I wasn't going to bother entering, but heard this song on
the Digitally Imported Chillout station.
It made me think of Oji Tanaka, the salaryman protagonist of Black Heaven
who wants to be a rock star.
It didn't take long to make, and was a nice change from altering lots of
footage or searching through multiple shows. Although a large part of the
series was unusable, such as the space combat scenes, I was fortunate that
there were a lot of long, brooding scenes which fit the tone of the video.
I'm a little disappointed with the ending. The audio part. The song goes
on for almost a minute and a half so I cut it off and did a small echo at the
end. It'll have to do.
Incidentally, the paper shown during the lyric "Or what about in ten
years?" is a filing for divorce. I wasn't sure what else to use to
represent that passing of time.
