notes: This vid is for [personal profile] oyceter, who bid on and won my vidding services in the [community profile] help_for_ephemere auction last year. Oyce chose the source and the theme and suggested the style of song; I chose the actual song and made the vid from there, with a lot of help from a class on multimedia narrative that I took this semester. Huge thanks to [personal profile] kuwdora for excellent and timely beta comments, and to lingzhen for providing dinner during my last frantic push to finish.

Through the camera lens re-editing history gives imagination to the people. Wu Zetian and Shang'guang Jing'er are awesome. Hooray for awesome ladies of the Tang Dynasty!

"Double Blade"
Composer: Jay Chou | 周杰倫
Lyricist: Vincent Fang | 方文山

Through the camera lens re-editing history gives imagination to the people
The bridge of the eight centimetre documentary film
Admired across a distance
The two sides of good and evil opposed to each other
I clench tightly my fist starting to get used to it
The method of a tooth for a tooth
Wind
Flies around the hazy smoke
The incense I sincerely light
Praying for safety and security

From the roof look downward on violence spinning on the spot
The previous generation's answer to settling something is to smile and not resist

The Tang costume that has been drenched in rain, that part of sighing is very Eastern
I'm not used to seeing the clan, which has had its dignity injured, so unbearable

Wind
Slowly goes around the martial arts centre
The moon just above
That colour, Chinese yellow
Through through the camera lens re-editing history gives imagination to the people
The bridge of the eight centimetre documentary film is being broadcasted
Admired across a distance
The two sides of good and evil opposed to each other
I clench tightly my fist starting to get used to it
That method of a tooth for a tooth
Fear comes from giving in

(RAP: Just the front of the double blade
My murderous look does not make a turn
Back facing my power
Yet it, itself gets injured
The lower right of the double blade
I wield the sword to finish it
See through all resentment
The vision of the red phoenix eyes)


"双刀"

透过镜头重新剪接历史给人的想像
八厘米纪录片的桥段
隔着距离欣赏
正邪对立的两方
我握紧拳头开始习惯
以牙还牙的手段

盘旋烟雾弥漫
我虔诚点的香
在祈祷着平安

从天台向下俯看暴力在原地打转
上一代解决的答案是微笑不抵抗

被雨淋湿的唐装那股叹息很东方
我看不惯尊严受伤家族如此不堪


缓缓绕过武馆
正上方的月亮
那颜色中国黄
透过透过镜头重新剪接历史给人想像
八厘米纪录片的桥段在播放
隔着距离欣赏
正邪对立的两方
我握紧拳头开始习惯
那以牙还牙的手段
恐惧来自退让

Repeat (Show)

(Rap : 双刀的正前方
我杀气不转弯
背对我的力量
它自己却受伤
双刀的右下方
我挥刀去了断
将恩怨全看穿
丹凤眼的目光)

I really enjoyed this! I don't know much about vids but the action choreography that you picked out was excellent, and I loved the way you used Jing'er looking down the camera as her looking at Wu.
