k, let me clarify something on my last post. I was told by a friend that my last post was a bit crude. Now..It wasn't meant to sound rude to the editor that won. I'm happy for him as well! That's a big win!! All congrats to RAWdangers (:
Because of that, I was told that I was taken bad about because I said what I said. Sorry for being honest and straight forward with my opinion on which video I thought best fit "drama" for otakon. I thought Magic Eye was best for it. Thats pretty much all I meant to say...lol So hopefully those people who seen that, will get things clear now. Sorry! Congrats to everyone again! <3

It looks like a lot of deserving videos won, but how was the contest as a whole?

It was pretty damn good. There were a lot of really good videos among all the categories. Action and Drama were especially stacked.

Don't worry, i didn't take it offensively. It's honestly the reaction i expect. It's the reaction I had myself as I said earlier.

I'd like to upload my video to the site today, but I'm a little busy with some pressing matters at hand (read: drunk). I'll have up it by time I see straight things.

The contest was great, and gratz to all the winners! :bzz: Iron Editor was awesome too; first year I went to IE (didn't really know what it was before :sweat:). My only complaint was that a lot of videos seemed to be in wrong categories, and a couple sources seemed overused (MLP, Madoka). Still a great time overall!

Otakon was amazing, and the contest was extremely competitive - 9 solid action videos and 6 solid drama videos. Amazing to see the results turn out that way with some favorites falling to equally effective and competitive contenders. The whole contest was just great to watch.

Oh, and if I hadn't already mentioned it, I loved the SenBASA video that led off Action. The last time I was so excited and pumped up about an AMV and its showcase anime was 2005 with Nostromo's "Always Hardcore" video. This video has knocked "Hands Up" as my favorite video so far this year. Congratulations on a stellar performance.

Some more thoughts: I'd like to 'thank' BecauseImBored1 for getting Teenagers stuck in my head all weekend. Also, watching Shut Up and Ride was awkward because I know this WoW parody better than the original song.

It was a lovely contest! I can't really express how thrilled I am with the results. I was so glad that I brought so much cheer to that contest audience -- and I am so so so honored to be the best in show winner, and to have had the oppurtunity to meet so many fine editors!

I was so surprised other people had ponies in their videos, I was trying to be all cool and artsy and out there. My only issue is I felt that the other two videos in the contest that had MLP in them kind of just threw them in there without rhyme or reason, other than the one that hey -- everyone loves ponies. That being said it would be highly hypocritical of me to discredit their use X3

XD I can't argue with you on that cause a) Aladdin is awesome and b) ponies isn't an anime. But as I explained at the dinner after iron editor, my personal goal as an editor is to keep pushing outside the box, with ideas and concepts that can sometimes be a little out there and maybe even radical. Maybe it didn't/doesn't belong in an AMV contest, maybe it did/does. The important thing here - to me at least is that it found a place, and made people laugh. And that's all I can ask for. Also I got a really neat shirt out of it sooooo X3

Anyway congrats to all of the winners! You are all amazing!!
