 - Honorable Mention for Best of Show

I've had this concept for quite some time and was waiting for an opportunity to make it. I chose to use "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar since I love the song and felt is was perfect for the video. The song itself is over 5 minutes long so I edited about 45 seconds of the song out.

Many may thing of this video as "Old School" since the music is from the 80s and it features Gundam 0083, an anime over 1o years old, but I wanted to show the struggle of a relationship in the harsh realities of war and I think both the song and anime is best suited for that purpose.

This video is a faster moving Drama video with a lot of action sequences so I find it hard to call it a true drama or action video since it's a bit of both. It uses basic editing and does not use any digital effects since I thing the scenes work well to convey the emotions and mood that I wanted to portray.
