Bronified Friday by Ranmaman 2003


.................wow.......... i was not even expecting an honorable mention for this XD. I'm glad the judges enjoyed it enough to give it anything. :) thank you guys so much for even giving Ponies a chance in a contest like this.... i just really haven't made any full on AMV's since my last years entry... but i've got a couple ideas that i will hopefully start soon to submit 1 or 2 next year here, and to try and get 1 or 2 done for animethon ... just gotta motivate myself enough to do them XD.

oh and not that it really matters (not sure if i spelt it wrong in the email or or not but the title is "Bronyfied Friday" with the Y not the I but it no biggie :P

i mostly enter the contests (especially if i'll be attending) is to catch the "Audience Reaction" just to see if people at least enjoy my videos... though i'm never expecting to win either top 3 or any form of Honorable mention, if i do happen to get something it's just an awesome feeling.

Though... Audience Reaction to this video....well to me.....it seemed like most people clapped... only cause there were told to "cheer" for all the videos after they played :P being there seemed to be very few pony fans at the contest (not that i was really expecting many.. if any at all)

I was very happy though that even though there weren't many people in the room at the time of the pre-show it was awesome when playing the 5 or so "close but just didn't make the final cut" videos that my other entry was 1st to play.. and it got a few chuckles, so I was happy that one played even though it wasn't a finalist...

you guys are so awesome - i can't wait to enter again next year... assuming the right idea sparks up in my mind XD

Thanks again to all the judges - and Congrats to all the other Winners as well :D

I'm sure the dedicated AMV room will be back!

For those who don't know, this year I ran a full dedicated AMV room on Sat and Sun in the big theater that holds 411 people! And for the most part if was well attended being even packed for several blocks!

Mine came a day apart too ^^. I've never seen such varied prizes, it's good stuff, and it was so fun to go through it and see what everything was. Getting an email with a tracking number was also a nice courtesy.

I do wish the certificate had an ampersand though, kinda looks like we got 2nd Best place (in) Best Comedy.

Sweet! Thanks for letting me know you guys are enjoying the prize packages! *totally blushing here!* ^_^;;

Since Otafest is pretty small compared to the big American cons, and the award structure is pretty different from most cons's contests, I'm always worried that folks won't enter our contest... so thanks very much you guys for putting out a good word on the prize packages!

At this point, I think most of the ones headed out to North American addresses have gotten where they are supposed to go now, and it's the overseas address still in transit!

Cheers,

Jen-chan

I was very impressed with my swag bag as well - even being an honorable mention i really wasn't expecting to get as much as i did. :P - but being i haven't really done a full on AMV in a while... the really funny thing is - that the i had started a video using a certain show before receiving my prize...... just to get said show in the bag :P - which to me was a sign to crack down and actually work on the video :D, and a good show IMO as well :)

so for those that know who put the bag together will know the show i got - and when its done i'm really hoping you all will enjoy the video - as i'm trying to get it done on time to submit to Animethon... and if i can't make anything decent i might even submit it to next years Otafest so they might see what i did with the same show i received :P


again as others said - very impressed with the bag and so looking forward to next years contest :D
