KATSUCON 2011 contest Winners AND Standings!

Postby Deuce Loosely » Sun Feb 20, 2011 7:50 pm

This is your new Katsucon AMV department head speaking (yup, you read that correctly).
Yeah, I was passed the torch this weekend.
The show this year was quite good as a lot of tough choices had to be made.
This includes TWO tiebreakers by audience response!
In my opinion there were a few surprises but nothing earth-shattering.
That is to say except for one thing which I'll get to a bit later. ;)

Allow this to be my first action in the new position.
May I have the envelope please...

UPBEAT (first tiebreaker) - 365 total votes received
5. "Mashupgatari" by Shin - 28
4. "Untouched" by moonbunnychan - 46
3. "Let's Rock" by NightMistress85 - 79
2. "So In Sync" by Snapxynith - 106
1. "Speed Over Soul Eater" by EimiJ7 - 106

ROMANCE - 356 total votes received
6. "Hideaway" by SPK - 27
5. "Eclipse" by SammySama Productions - 30
4. "Fly With Me" by Zero - 49
3. "Dark Blue" by Shin) - 66
2. "Notice Me" by moonbunnychan - 88
1. "Still Waiting" by EimiJ7 - 96

DRAMA - 377 total votes received
5. "Brothers in Arms" by Daniel Solon - 27
4. "With Me" by Sky - 28
3. "Letting Go" by Miracle Falcon - 90
2. "Your Own Feet" by Bebop0083 - 108
1. "To the Future" by Kazemon15 - 124

ACTION (second tiebreaker) - 392 total votes received
6. "Soul Eater Spotlight" by Bebop0083 - 36
5. "Massacre" by Hydra Star - 46
4. "Dead New World" by drewaconclusion - 67
3. "Pray For a Gurren Soul to Eat" by Rainingmadness - 69
2. "Awesome Bunneh" by AllyKatAVR - 87
1. "Sexy Munto Extreme" by Kevin Piscitello - 87

COMEDY - 380 total votes received
4. "Zombieland" by SammySama Productions - 17
3. "Expendable Waltz" by Davis 51 (Under the Box Productions) - 56
2. "Het Me Baby" by jubjub2 - 80
1. "Me, Myself, and Me" by HalOfBorg - 227

COORDINATOR CHOICE: "Pray For a Gurren Soul to Eat" by Raining Madness
JUDGES CHOICE: "Speed Over Soul Eater" by EimiJ7
CON CHAIR AWARD: "Let's Rock" by NightMistress85
BEST IN SHOW: "Me, Myself, and Me" by HalOfBorg
* The thing I was gonna mention before: I was informed there were 15 Best in Show write-in votes for my comedy category bumper (this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dma1oL8W4nE). The only difference is the titles read "Katsucon 2011 Comedy AMVs" instead of "Godot Special Roast #72." Weird/

Those of you who weren't present to collect your awards will have them shipped to you within the next two weeks. I must speak with Katsucon treasury about what's in the department budget for shipping expenses. I'll keep you all updated.

Congratulations to all the winners and I look forward to seeing you all (and hopefully more) on board for the Katsucon 18 AMV contest! I'm already making plans... ;)

Oh, it happened.
BOY did it happen...like wow!
For a first-year contest it went over like it's been around for five.
I only have titles but I'm sure the detailed results will be posted shortly after Toni (Crona) gets home.
I can tell you the winner left the rest of the pack shattered in the vote count.
Like they got well over 100 and the others in single-digits.

3. "Nom Nom Nom"
2. "DPH" by CorpseGoddess
1. "the Darkest of Places" by Kosmit

There were only eight entries this time but we'll be expecting more next year (that means you too). ;)

...I seem to come in third place for just about every Con I enter, regardless of the size of the category. Like...wtf?

First place became a lock when we realized "Me" had half the votes with more on the way.
The race for second was more interesting.
Just don't be discouraged.
It's been a tough year for comedy all around, sad to say.
You had balls enough to put something out there when others won't and you did make the finals, after all, which is more than the majority of editors ever get.
I thought 2008 would be my year when I brought out "Me Wuvs You" and "Go Ask Haruhi."
The novelty of being runner-up wore off after the third time so yeah, I know where you're coming from.
Keep at it and never stop learning new things about this medium of fan art. ;)

I know the feeling, I placed near the bottom in my categories as well. Though I am a bit discouraged this is only the second Con that I entered into and had videos shown at. I consider that a great honor just to make the finalists! And considering I've submitted something to my first two contests ever (katsu and ama) and had videos shown at both makes me very happy. You tend to notice that trends change and from my recon at AMA I noticed some people vote on a video based on what series was used rather than the editing skills, which is okay I guess... But we take these experiences and we learn and move on. Keep playing around and I'm sure you'll be able to make a great video that will win the audience over and knock the competition dead!!!! :D

Oh, no, I'm far from discouraged. It's always absolutely thrilling just to have my work screened. This was supposed to be a fun, quickly thrown together thing based off a complete whim (only really spent two weeks editing it when my Avatar/Wake Up and Cowboy Bebop/My Body is a Cage videos took over two combined years.) I'm always surprised as hell whenever something of mine gets obscenely close to being 2nd or 1st (I was told that I nearly came in second overall for best vid at Nekocon). I was merely observing that this seems to be a highly coincidental pattern forming that it always tends to be in 3rd place, and not 2nd or 4th or 5th or whatever.

And I wholeheartedly agree with you. Imma gonna be editing for awhile, and will always strive to improve. I do plan on entering my Bebop one into at least one more contest (I only entered it into AUSA so far, and it didn't make finals there), and I actually have this really big Romance/Sentimental vid planned for Otakon this year that I plan to start editing next week.

Not too surprised Me got so many votes. The thing is hysterical. Best character-portrayal vid I've ever seen outside She's Just Oblivious.

Ha, I feel you on the runner up blues. I have more second places now then I can even remember. Although I'm still happy enough people liked it to vote, honestly I'm just happy to have things I made even make it in to be seen.
And I loved all the "Awwws" after my Romance video this year. <3

Congrats to everybody!
