That was fantastic! What a great choice for the song. I'd never heard that before. I hope a lot of people will see this.

Yay, it's up! I continue to really like this song, and how you've used it to both show a personal journey, but also intertwined it with the people he leads and inspires. I love him positioned within the larger context of the war, and his important role in it. I particularly love the intercutting of all the people silent, waiting, watching, and his little speech in his quarters about the beginning of the war and his cancer. And the cutting of him literally getting ready for his last mission and walking towards it, washing his hands clean while the jaegers get ready. But my favorite is the end, when he's not even *in* it anymore but there's a real sense of how much the victory is his, as well as everyone's. Stacker!

And I think I said it before, but this footage really does look great for cam footage!

I missed this one until now. I forgot this song until the first chorus came in, and then I remembered it, and I realized--of course. You've told a very powerful story here and it's great.

what a beautiful song (i never hear it before but i really like it!) and video.
i love the beginning, its such an interesting choice and the way the bigger picture/the war is really tangible through the video.also the ending how his work/words carry through the end even if he is not physical there anymore?
its all just perfect thanks for making and sharing this video!
