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 ...

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...

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...
