Pachelbel. Though not remembering the video that well from Otakon 2003, I don't know whether that's actually the same Canon in D we're talking about.

See, I honestly have no clue who did it. Every time I google the thing it's in Japanese... and even the CD case is in kanji (it's from the import "EVA: Day of Second Impact" CD). Plus it's spelled "Kanon D-Der" on that.

Ok, I did some checking on this Johann Pachelbel person and even listened to a few different versions and I'm convinced it's his song.
So we'll use that. There sent request....

P.S. I wish I would have known who it was 2 years ago...

The Eva soundtrack uses the famous classical piece (as well as a few others, like Air), but the S2 Works and other track listings don't have the information correct on the composer.

Kannon in D-dur is the original title, technically speaking, but the composer's work is famous and oft reproduced (it's a favourite movie soundtrack addition, too), so it has found fame under the English translation, Pachelbel's Canon (or Canon and Gigue, and there are a couple of keys it's played in, in a variety of instruments).

Hello. I'm a newcomer to the org forums.

While reading this thread, it occurred to me that one can't ever know whether or not a person has created videos before his or her "first" video. That's because any member could create several videos that they never upload to the org and never enter into any AMV contests. In fact, a smart thing for a beginning AMV editor to do would be to create a few videos, have family and friends comment on them, take some time to hone their artistic and editing skills, and then create and upload their big "first" video.

Yes, you are correct. However you *can* know when someone has released videos publically and this is what has happened here.

I know. I was just trying to say that, to me, the Best First Video category seems problematic since there's obviously no way to go around and check people's hard drives to see whether or not they've created AMVs in the past that they never uploaded. For all we know, any AMV creator's "first" video might not really be their first. Because of this possibility, you can potentially have much more skilled creators going up against true first-timers, and such a thing would interfere with the spirit and purpose of the category.

That's why the award treats videos that are "the first made public," (as noted in the discription) and not first ever made.

Ah, I didn't notice before that each category had a description posted on the website. Thank you for correcting me on that.

I read through the posts and I wanted to clarify:
1. The video was disqualified because the studio/group had posted a video before?
2. Does "the first made public" mean release on their website? upload to AMV? Or either could count as release to the public?

can we vote?

Okay, this might sound silly to some, but there are some AMV fans who have other obligations in life too :-) and I don't know that I'll be able to watch all the categories' entries before voting. But I don't want to miss supporting some great videos because I was trying to cram the rest in before the deadline....

If I cast a vote in *some* categories now, will I be able to vote in the others later? Or will my access to the voting page be denied once I have submitted a vote?

You can give new (or change) votes as long as the deadline hasn't passed.
