Other important non-results information:

1) Trophies / prizes should go out to the North American winners this week.
2) Next year's theme is 2012: Year of the Dragon.
3) Next year's venue is going to be in Manchester - the floor space of the con will increase by over 250% - This is the largest convention-friendly venue in the state.
3b) As a result of this move, I have petitioned for and been granted the run of an AMV room. I'm officially looking for staff.

I agree! There were a lot of amazing videos this year.

I still say the Lain video was a drama, not comedy, though. :P


Thank you. <3

And yeah, the Lain video could've gone either way, I noted that when I submitted. But it was my understanding that there were less videos in the comedy category, so I assume it went where it was needed. :amv:

It also had most of our prescreeners rolling with laughter - it made quite the impression on the audience too. IIRC it was tied for first after the first showing.

I would have to disagree about it being drama. There is simply no way anyone can take that video seriously, it's very much a sarcastic comedy.

It helps a lot if you've seen serial experiments lain. It helps a bit more if you've heard the original version of that song.

That and the fact that the song used was a parody.

Ileia, Ileia, Ileia... I have a new AMV goal-- to ambush you with a catchy song.

I had the Zomboleo song stuck in my head so badly after the masquerade that I was still intermittantly dancing to it 8 hours later. Great video, but now I'm scared to watch it. :uhoh:

Well, you could watch another video to get it out of your head.

Perhaps.....this one?

yes because the source, the song being a parody and the fact that the original song is a laughing stock decides what the video is... not, you know, how the editor executes it. Just saying.

Oh hi, the calvary came in :D

Now if Ileia REALLY intends for it to be taken seriously, submitting it to comedy and using a parody song probably isn't the best way to go about it...

Just to illustrate a point, a person COULD wear a clown outfit to a serious job interview and EXPECT to be taken seriously, it's highly doubtful they will however ;)! Just sayin'...

EDIT: Spelling

Settle down.

It has been and will continue to be taken either way. That's all there is to it. Nothing to need to argue or gather cavalry. :roll:
