Surrealism!

Surrealism!

Welcome to Friday!  It’s time for a new music video!  This week, I’ve decided to post a video that just blew me away at this year’s Fanime AMV contest: A Prelude to Dreams by Techninjarox.

Why is this video awesome?

I just love surrealism.  This video blends several different animes together to a dance remix of one of my favorite songs – Imogen Heap’s Hide and Seek.  The song doesn’t make any sense, so the very odd shots chosen actually work very well.  And the cutting speeds up and slows down with the music, which is something that a lot of editors miss when they do videos to dance remixes.  But most of all, this video wonderfully showcases ALL of the animes it uses.  The animation and colors and themes of all of them were so beautiful, I plan on tracking down and watching every one of the titles used here.

What could have been done better?

I’ve got nothing.  It’s easy to see how this won so many awards.

I hope you enjoyed the music video!  Download it at AMVNews (torrent only).
