Sammy, I'm sorry that I didn't get a chance to answer your question before the contest. I wear a number of hats for Animefest (really, what convention manager doesn't?), so things get crazy between the judging and the exhibition. I'll be honest - until I saw your question, I hadn't even considered releasing a list of the finalists, but that's a great idea. I will absolutey get with the other judges, and we'll look at doing so next year.

Dude, you made a successful horror music video. :shock: I got to see the stunned expressions on the faces of the audience. I wish I'd have been able to take a picture for you.

No prob I completely understand. Things get crazy and thank you for responding where a few cons have ignored any request from me when I attempt to retrieve info. I was also thinking I had missed an email or something and am happy to hear I wasn't overlooked. I like to see finalists list to see if any of my vids making personally so I can update their stats. It's good to see that One More was so well received and thank you for posting the results ^_^
