Amateur Cruel Intentions soundtrack music video: Counting Crows "Colorblind" - I do not own Cruel Intentions, nor Coloblind and I am not affiliated with the Counting Crows in any way, this is just my tribute to one of the greatest movies ever made, I ripped the film from my own purchased DVD and digitally re-arranged the movie clips to tell the entire story of the film in a small frame of time (the duration of the music). . . this video in no way changes the story of the film and is similar to a film promotional preview. This video is posted to recieve crtique on my video and sound editing capabilities and to pay homage to a great band, song and movie.

My own personal comments:
This is a video I made for my ex with the Counting Crows song Colorblind, which was on the Cruel Intentions Soundtrack, which is also what the video consists of, This was my first attempt at a music video and I tried to tell a story, let me know what you think.
The basis of the story I tried to grab is a very personal one. All through the video Sebastian is trying to tell Annette that he loves her and wants to be with her, and it's not until that end of the video when he gets hit by the car and dies that she believes him, and realizes that he means it.
Never take for granted when someone loves you, make sure they know it, and live each moment like it's your last, cause you never know when it will be, and don't be like Annette and not realize what you have until it's gone.
please pass this on to anyone you feel would be touched by this vid, and if you want a real tear jerker, see the film I made after this one called "My Girls"
You'll see that there is a second part to this story, that I hold very personal.
