Originally created as a trailer for a book I planned on writing. The book ended up focusing on some different themes, but the trailer still holds up well. Quatre Bornes, or “Q” is a character I have been developing since 2004. The anime “Air” has a character that looks similar, so I used it as video source.
The sketches were done by varying artists, none of which are myself. They were done on commission and do represent the Q character.
The video has rotoscoped components (meaning I went frame by frame to achieve a certain look). I added tails to each scene which required them, and added a blood stain to one scene.
Please note that this video does rip scenes and edits straight from another AMV. I didn’t ask permission and never credited them before now (2021). At the time, this was a personal project just for me and I didn’t intend to really share it beyond a roleplaying context.
But now that I am archiving AMVs, I feel this needs to be said and proper credit given.
