A previous thread (Clicky) made me think of ideas for AMVs.

There are a few scenes in Eva that Floyd tunes would work well together in.

"Mother"; well, there's just so many obvious people there...

"A Saucerful of Secrets" during the mind-fcuk scenes in EoTV/EoE.

"Waiting for the Worms" before Instrumentality.

"Echoes" during Instrumentality .

"Young Lust" during one of the Kaji-&-Misato-fcuk-each-other's-brains-out scenes.

"One of my Turns" during the coffee pot "sequence".

"Nobody's Home" during the times when Shinji is being a "vagrant" earlier in the series, can't remember the particular episodes though.

"On the Run" either in a mind-fcuk scene or during a fighting sequence.

"Comfortably Numb" during the times when Shinji is really dragging his feet.

"Not Now John" over the "controversies" surrounding Eva.

"The Final Cut" during Shinji's worst moments.

I've got to (or at least somebody must) make AMVs of these. I'll post more ideas later...

There is a Comfortably Numb one out there which is brilliant, one of my favs. Personally I think a lot of Floyd's music would work well alongside Eva. I'm constantly reminded of Eva during a lot of Floyd tracks. A few tracks from DSOTM might work too.

Great Gig for Instrumentality, Brain Damage/Eclipse for the End of Instrumentality.

Animals would be interesting to try, there are elements in there that would work but entire songs wouldnt.

However I might be biased because Floyd are my favourite band and everything but it'd be awesome if they got Roger Waters or Gilmour on board to do some tracks. Could you just imagine an Eva with the sounds of David Gilmours guitar on the soundtrack.

I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE FIGHTING SCENES COMPLETE WITH FLASHBACKS AND LINKIN PARK
He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."

We should start a multi-editor project to make an Evangelion themed version of The Wall.

That could almost be pure win, if it wasn't already.


Myself, after things have settled down from AMV Hell 4, I was thinking about making a 2112 video using Eva. Not sure if it will work out, though.

Fuck yeah, AMV Hell 4, totally forgot about that.
If I have no soul to touch, no heart to love, no evil to rise up above
No angels and no ghosts, no real victories to toast
If you believe that this is true then I must ask;
to what end do you proceed?

Im starting an AMV
The focus is on the hell Shinji,Asuka,Rei,toji, had to go through, Kaworu be included as a part of Shinji's struggles
And yes there will be fight scences probably including a bit of Asuka's EoE fight. I also want to use find mcuk sequences from both EoE and EoTv.
I want to have audio on the eva characthers for a few things like Shinji's I Musn't run away.

The Song Will Be Thrice's Stare at the Sun
I sit here clutching useless lists,
keys for doors that don't exist
I crack my teeth on pearls
I tear into the history
Show me what it means to me in this world
Yeah, in this world

'Cause I am due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes
Till I understand or go blind

I see the parts but not the whole
I study saints and scholars both
No perfect plan unfurls
Do I trust my heart or just my mind
Why is truth so hard to find in this world
Yeah in this world

'Cause I am due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes
Till I understand or go blind (till I understand or go blind)

I know that there's a point I've missed
A shrine or stone I haven't kissed
A scar that never graced my wrist
A mirror that hasn't met my fist
But I can't help feeling like I'm

Due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign (waiting for a sign)
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes (and I won't close my eyes)

Due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes


I am very open to suggestions. this is my first AMV ever and I want it to kick butt for a firstimer, lol. so please blanket me with suggestions!

How about a retrospective of Shinji and (fem)Kaworu to Frank Sinatra's "Lucky be a Lady Tonight."
Awesomely Shitty
-"That purace has more badassu maddafaakas zan supermax spaceland."
-On EMF, as a thread becomes longer, the likelihood that fem-Kaworu will be mentioned increases exponentially.
-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity

Song name fixed. Yes, I listen to Sinatra...

In any case, I don't remember who, but someone put the bug in my ear about the song "girlfriend in a coma" to describe Shinji and Asuka's relationship. I think that'd be fun to see. And just for kicks, someone should take a shot at "The End" by The Doors. Would be interesting.

Especially the "'Father.' 'Yes son?' 'I want to kill you. Mother... I want to... fuck you.'" bit.

It would certainly be a fun and interesting video to watch, of that I'm certain.

I've recently been considering doing an EVA video to the song "Brian Wilson" by the Barenaked Ladies. Mostly it would be Shinji-centric, but there would be other things in there, too.

But no skills, no time. :roll:

My Chemical Romances "Fake Your Death".

I'd like to see an Amv of the original series AND the rebuilds with it. Because I believe the lyrics could be interpreted in the context of the Eva Verse as rejecting instrumentality. A song talking about moving on from defeat and loss, about moving on with ones life after getting Catharsis.

I choose defeat, I walk away
And leave this place, for sane today
Some like to sleep, we like to play
Just look at all that pain

"Hey Jude" to some of the more memorable moments of Evangelion, with the results being an AMV that would end all AMVs.

There actually was one posted up once upon a time. Sadly Apple Records had it taken down.

A friend once joked how Kaworu and Shinji had a "rad bromance"; maybe that should be made at the very least. :smirk:

All the angels coming together and soulfully playing "The End" by The Doors together, as some of them "sing" through synchronized beats. Maybe some story going on, as everyone as NERV tries to stop the "concert" from happening or something, eventually becoming some kind of mindscrew to end all mindscrews.
