This was a really solid contest all around. Talking to several editors, fans, and listening to what people had to say during the con, we all had different opinions as to which categories were strong and which ones weren't... in my book, that's a plus. Big congrats to all those who won and all those who competed. It was a good show. Big props to Castor Troy for not only winning here but he also defeated me at the Iron Editor event as well.

Naruto Ball Z Shippuden is now up!



Plus, I am also announcing that I am retiring from amvs. I will still come back next year to defend my Iron Editor title, but I won't actively be making videos anymore.

I had a really great time at the con and it was one of my favorite con experiences ever. The contest was quite strong and even a lot of the cut entries were really damn good.

See you all next year! Even though I won't be an active editor anymore (except for the Iron Editor).

Congrats to the winners.

Now I don't feel like completing my other action vid since I'll be competing against Castor and lose again. :P

Same here! Hopefully you'll be up to challenge me next year at Iron Editor. :)

Next year, you don't have to worry anymore. :P

Your video started off the action category pretty strong and set the tone for the rest of the contest. Good job with your "zoom" sync. :up:

I would like to thank jubjub for her entry which I asked to use as the opening video as it did not make the cut.

Yeah, it was quite a strong contest and I even saw a few overflow videos that could have competed with the actual finalists, but sadly, there's not enough room for them all...

I was literally sweating bullets the entire Iron Editor since I wasn't too confident in my concept and knowing how much more experienced you are in IC'ing (you are the king after all..). I was also having premiere crash quite often due to one source *cough*hellsingultimate*cough*. Luckily, the secret source saved my video quite a bit!

I was pretty shocked that I won :shock:

Although I admit your video was bit more well polished editing wise.

Yes! Thrilled that I even made it in this year, let alone won my category :)

Also, props to everyone else, I think there were a lot of really strong entries! I especially want to congratulate Brittany Jung, 1000% Sexy was definitely my favorite of the show.
