I will go fix it. I thought that might be the case but it seriously looks like an H on your entry form. I had to go back and look again.

Agh, I'm really disappointed that the vid I made for AX didn't get in. I could care less about winning, but man I really wanted to see it on the screen. It did kinda have not really fitting in any category going against it though.

But hey, I'm thinking this contest should be pretty hardcore with so many people sending vids. Looking forward to it! Congrats everyone!

I...don't mean to sound naggy or anything, but didn't the rules state that the categories would be shorten from 7 to 6, not 7 to 5?

Holy shiiiit...

Only 5 videos per category looks like pretty fierce competition. I can't imagine how insane future AX contests will be like.. :shock:

Glad to see both of the people I'm proxying for made it in and ummm... someone else.

*whistles* :ying:

Best of luck to all the contestants!

Looking over some of the entries, it looks like comedy/fun videos (in almost all categories) we're heavily favored.

The rules don't state how many finalists from each category there will be. (I just went back and re-read it several times and even did word searches for finalist (appears 1 time) and Final (which appears 3)

However, Back in January I did state in a separate post that we were reducing the number of finalists from 7 to 6 to make room for the new category. I apologize for not remembering that i had set it it 6 not 5. Not sure how I got it in my head it was 5. I will go back to the tally sheets and pull up the number 6's from each category.

Thank you for catching that

While it's a really neat video

Official AX Rules wrote: A parody video is a video in which editing has been used to create something other then a music video, and the music involved acts only as a soundtrack or background element. Videos of this nature can look like music videos, such as Commercials, Trailers, opening/closing themes to TV shows, and more, but they focus on subjects other then the music and video relationship. Videos found to be edited in this format and not submitted to the “Fun” category will either not be accepted into the Anime Expo® Anime Music Video Contest or be re-categorized and moved into the “Fun” category at the discretion of the Special Judges in consultation with the Anime Expo® Anime Music Video Contest Directors. Any decisions by this body to re-categorize a video in this manner are final and not guaranteed. So if you want so submit a parody or original concept video to the contest, we strongly suggest you submit it to the “Fun” category. That’s what it is there for.


I mean, how does this video:



Majorly differ from the Big O video?

I'm really not trying to be a bitch, both videos are of great quality....but...Kevin got disqualified, and yet this video gets in with the same rule in place?
I'm not trying to get him DQ'd I'm just trying to point out the lack of categorization by judges and coordinators.

Not cool guys. :?
