Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

How would this variant of the top 10 be? People vote for their favorite videos and categories at the same time. The videos are all listed, people check the 10 videos they think most deserve a spotlight. Then they select three possible categories the video could be acknowledged for. A list of categor...

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

.... Here's a dumb idea. Get rid of the category awards and leave editors to vote for the top 10 videos overall. Not a dumb idea at all... comments, anyone? I'm listening. With bloc-voting coordinated with a wink and a nod does it even really matter? At least the way it is now, the audience has som...

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 12

Warlike Swans, let me ask you this... beyond the mechanics you suggested, why do you want these mechanics? What would you, if you were me, say about why you have things this way, when you're asked? Do you feel the craft and community of music video editing, which in some respect is defined by the w...

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 12

My suggestion would be this: Set the list we have this year as a standard category list. Create a forum thread for category discussion. If you get an odd year with say, only 2 clear romance videos, remove it based on forum feedback. If there are at least 4 adult videos, add that category automatical...

Re: Obligatory, annual, elitist AWA 2016 Pro AMV review!

Comments (broken up, because scrolling gets ridiculous): Videos 020-050 :puppy: 020 Good video. Song was generic, and didn’t seem challenging, but it was solidly edited. 028 This video had a cute concept, and didn’t try to stretch it longer than needed. Could have had some stronger sync, but cute ov...

Re: The AWA 2015 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

Finally finished reviewing the videos. The overall quality this year was really good. :up: I probably should go through and make sure I didn't say anything too mean or abuse grammar too egregiously... but I'm so lazy just now. 103. This video has numerous technical problems. The scene selection and ...

Re: The AWA 2015 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

Going to weigh in with my opinion on combined categories. I like seeing them. A contest with Horror/Psychedelic award is great. Ordinarily those videos would be awkwardly relegated to a more standard category like drama. Combining categories doesn’t downsize a contest by smooshing together two indep...

Re: The AWA 2015 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

What I was trying to accomplish was a test of your sensibilities. I don't actually care if there's a functionally non-anime category. I'd rather see videos win based on what they are doing conceptually/emotively/artistically than win based on their source materials. I would like to see editors get t...

Re: The AWA 2015 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

I understand not wanting a negation in an award title. Does that mean I should propose a "Best International" category and hope people know what I mean?

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 ...

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...
