[WINNERS] N2U 2011 AMV Contest

Postby EVAR » Fri Nov 25, 2011 3:46 pm

N2U 2011 is over, I've had a bit of recovery time (my bank balance can't say the same thing), and so now it's time for what you've been waiting for:

The Results of the N2U 2011 Anime Music Video Contest.

Starting the contest really early was odd. For the longest time, I had only about 10 entries in the contest. In the last week before the deadline, that number jumped up to 35--the most that N2U have ever received. Funny old world. We plan on doing the same thing for 2012, and again, we'll be looking forward to the entries.

Here's the order of the main contest showing on Friday evening. Links to the entries on animemusicvideos.org are provided when available. If I miss any, please let me know in a reply post.

WARNING
The N2U 2011 AMV Contest contains:

Plot spoilers, good and bad music (which is subjective, anyway), brief strobing effects, mass destruction, girls, girls, girls! (oh, yeah, and some guys), acrobatic dancing, big eff-off swords, a load of balls, a flock of panties, the Overfiend's house plants, about half a bucket of tears, ninja AND pirates and tips about how to survive a zombie apocalypse.
Enjoy the show.

Three entries were disqualified by the head of N2U. I'm already on his case about easing up on his criteria and putting up standard content warnings for next year, so you don't need to try to contact him yourself or go off on this forum. However, these videos are still good, so here's their acknowledgement:

Jem--"24"
Galia & Kitty
(frontal nudity/sexuality; I didn't even bring it to the judging, because I knew the con head wouldn't permit it)

Before my fingertips fall off from all this typing, formatting and copy-paste, I want to say thank you to each and every one of the entrants of the N2U 2011 AMV Contest, congratulations to all the winners (the con head should be sending the certificates and prizes to you before too long), and I look forward to doing this again at N2U 2012.

Sweet, I don't remember last time being a runner up. I guess sending in time the entry worked :D

I see now Tie Runner-Up Best Composition. What does that mean by DOUBLE VISION AND I"M a Kitty cat cause my AMV name stands right under does that mean that there is score tie by those 2 video's.

And what about the 3rd place AMV editors by each category cause I really like to know which places the other AMV's ended.

I'm looking forward to hear from Dave Watson,

I think it means both I'm a Kitty Cat and Double Vision tied for runner-up in Best Composition.

Double Vision and I'm a Kitty Cat scored exactly the same overall amount (to 1/100ths of a point) to tie for Runner-Up for Best Composition.

If I was in this contest and found out I placed 31st out of 32 competing entries, it would kind of bum me out. I'm trying to encourage AMV makers to keep at it and strive to sharpen their talents. Also, doing all the regular work for this contest consumes enough of my time as it is.

That's a switch; a lot of people wish I'd shut up more often. dB)
