Re: The AWA 2014 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

My notes. 6 - Not badly edited. The song's lack of variation led to a somewhat monotonous video, though. 15 - Good pairing, very well executed. Fun 18 - Not bad overall, but a bit slow paced, and needed clearer storytelling in the second half. 33 - Many problematic cross fades and overly static ...

Re: The AWA 2014 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

You should have been in the stream chat last night... plenty of uncensored thoughts I'm not that social :book: I wasn't invited... Don't feel too bad. A lot of it was people arguing over sources and potty jokes. The moaning about sources was funny... I could have moaned about Madoka and the Kill La...

Re: Anime Expo 2014 AMV Competition - Finalist List POSTED!

There was a lot in this contest that surprised me, but the reaction to Special Eyes (which was made forever ago, and never intended for contests) *really* caught me off guard. *Really.* I wanted to take the time to say "Thank you" for creating a bonus award for it based on audience reactio...

4 Videos; Parody, Halloween, Romance, ST IC (psych)

It's been like 6 months since I uploaded anything, decided to rectify that. 195334 195337 (Katie [ViviFX] collaborated with us, she's just yet to confirm it.) 195335 https://copy.com/yk0RhunAggYjusum 195336 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg-x0gOj4qw&list=UUOGgEKofCYeIdoLZKcq-HPQ (I'll have this...

Re: Multiple awards in a single contest?

so let me put this out, if the audience vote for a video is say 75% for it in a category (CLEAR WINNER) and it also wins Best of Show, then the runner-up in that category should get the category award even though it was not even close? Vlad Many Best in Show winners are extremely clear. It is the s...

Re: Multiple awards in a single contest?

I think a wider distribution of awards ends up making things more fun. You have more videos to play at the awards ceremony and more editors feeling that their work is recognized. If AMV contests could be judged with clear and objective standards it might make more sense to give a video all the award...

Re: [VivifxAMV] Anime 101 - Best in Show Anime Boston 2014

Congratulations on Best in Show! |:> This was a really good concept, and you obviously put a ton of effort into executing it. There were a few issues I had with it (aside from the color correcting that others have mentioned). 1) You digressed from you concept. Zetsubou tell them at the beginning tha...

Re: Fionn's Curse - Anime Boston 2014

This isn't my favorite of yours. I like the thought that went into the narrative framing, but the narrative itself is not very clear. Reading the summary I understand just how much of it I miss from the video itself. (Basically all I got was: guy is dying and has a flashback, had a lover back in the...

Re: If love (ST IC, romance)

The first time I watched this I didn't have the translation at hand and throughout it I felt I was missing something. Watching it today with the English available was a difference experience. This video is lovely and it's elegantly edited and so I'm glad I got to watch it again after reading the tra...

It's a shame that one didn't make finals in any of the categories, it was among the best videos in the contest.

Re: The AWA 2013 Video Review Thread -- Final Voting Is Upon

Okay. Finally done. Here are my reviews. 002 - Spirit Rush Consists of two types of scenes - either close-ups of characters' eyes or shots of people swiping at cards. Literally nothing else. Pass. 1.5/5 004 - Two Hearts Competent and, for the most part, consistent editing. Story was boring and ...

Re: The Video Art Track at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013 VAT AW

I wish we had been able to see all the categories proposed and then vote. Proposing categories in this thread might have raised flags over who made what. But I think better categories could have been arrived at, even if you pretend the nonsense "Best Fight" never happened.

"Best Fight?" I fail to see how that's anything but a redundancy of "Action"

Re: The AWA 2013 Video Review Thread -- Now with nude photos

I don't think this contest has been reduced to a popularity contest. Maybe knowing some one's videos could weigh my vote if I were on the fence between two videos I consider equal in quality, but with blind judging I'm perfectly happy to vote against a friend's video content in the knowledge that ev...
