Re: AWA Professional Awards 2017 Category Selection

I think the value of the stream is to get anonymous criticism from people who might not be bold enough to tell you it directly, so I don't want the stream to get too comfortable safe-space fluffy. I do feel bad that there were people upset by the contents of the stream this year. However, knowing a ...

Re: AWA Professional Awards 2017 Category Selection

Every year I am blamed for at least one entry in private and usually the assessment is wrong. So going forward any video even perceived as mine will be seen in contempt by some. I never wanted to do this publicly but I don't want someone else hard work reflected poorly because of this. I feel bad i...

Re: AWA Professional Awards 2017 Category Selection

Correct me if I misunderstood you... I think I can make this correction. I don't think Shin was proposing a change. Seemed like an idealogical statement of what voting means, and why discussion helps. [ Each ] of us as editors [is] picking videos to present to an audience that we feel is representa...

Re: AWA Professional Awards 2017 Category Selection

In regard to moderators: :cupcake: :up: :dino: I like the idea. I have made a number of last minute videos for Pro because I wanted to participate, and just didn't have time to make a full-effort video. I suspect similar motivations drove some of the very short videos as well. I also think that gett...

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

Since I'm probably too lazy to make an announcement page, I'm just going to leave this here. #65, Dissonance. The original concept for this video was to troll Cygnet, who used the song "Undo Your MInd." I was going to name it "Redo your mind." Then didn't. I'm not the best troll....

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 ...
