What a wonderful first time at Anime Expo. I enjoyed the AMV contest greatly -- congrats to the winners. I loved the best in show winner, as I am a huge portal fanatic. I really enjoyed the Ao no Hana video in Romance, I thought that was really fantastic. And the Evangelion one in Action with the interesting German name made me go home and watch all the evangelion movies. Into the Labrynth was fantastic as usual, and seeing it on the big screen was just an eyegasm. Also really enjoyed all the trailers this year -- especially Hagaran Viper's.

Gotta say though best part of my experience was the AMV Room and the AMV Gameshow. Nothing like wandering in out of curiousity and having them play not one but two of your older videos. And watching people try to answer obscure questions about easter eggs you labored over in them is also fantastic. Vlad has excellent taste XP The fact that I got to ask the people the questions was...well just downright glorious. To be honest though there were questions about moe moe rebellion even I could not answer at first o.o

I also really enjoyed iron editor! The games were really unique and fun. I kept expecting Rah Hey to show up and the typical Do you know your anime game -- but instead lots of fun new games. Watching people try to hit on Mysterious Ryder was also absolutely hilarious. Looking forward to Rider4z's Ducktale video too!

Meeting all you fun west coast editors was such a treat as well. All of you are fantastic and amazing. Can't wait to see you again <3 <3 <3

I agree with this whole heartedly. Comedy is always my favorite category and it was a little meh this year. Excellent entries but nothing crowd stopping. I felt kind of responsible because I struggled over whether or not to send PonyNote, but I felt like it had overstayed it's convention welcome. It got played in the comedy AMV screening though ^^

Definitely gonna attend again next year. And I won't leave unless I have a chair :rofl:

In fact, when I was announced as the winner at the Awards Ceremony, I sank down in my chair because I felt so embarrassed of “stealing” the award from the more professional editors. They probably feel the same way I did when I did not win the AX 2012 Masquerade Best of Show for my Bioshock Big Daddy cosplay, which I spent hundreds of hours constructing. Personally, I wanted “Into the Labyrinth” to win Best of Show. The editor of that video perfectly integrated the twitch effect with the music’s rhythm.

Man, now I want to see your entry even more. You should upload it somewhere, preferrably on the org. :)
But honestly, you don't need to worry about me feeling being robbed of the award. Just imagine how awesome it already is to win the Drama/Horror Category on a contest this big with my very first try of doing an AMV. The best of show award was decided by the audience and rightfully so. I just want to see your video too :3

I think Vlad's going to post all the playlists to the AX forums. However, I happen to have that particular list right with me so I'll save a bit of trouble and post it here and now.

Oh, and before I forget, I apologize in advance to those of you who were slated to be in pre-show but ended up not getting shown. The previous concert was running a little late, so some pre-show blocks unfortunately had to be cut. Most of the vids that got cut ended up being shown in the "Best Of" block though.

Ya' earned that crew badge many times over during the week, Mitch. You've got a spot on the AMV team anytime. Thanks for all your awesomeness.

Tsu! wrote:Personally, I think your video absolutely deserved to win and not just because it was so much fun. "Testing is the Future" had tons of skill go into it, especially for a first-time AMV (I was stunned by that) and ultimately was not only the preference of the audience but also the creators. If your fellow editors think you deserve it, then I tend to believe you deserve it!

Thank you Tsu! That means a lot. I know I told you this in person, but I loved "50 Ways for your Partner to Die". My favorite scene was when Ashley got run over by the wagon and then later carried off by Los Iluminados while Leon just stood by and watched. In my opinion, it was the funniest video in the Fun/Humor category.

I'm glad to hear that from you. Now I don't feel bad about winning. :sweat:
As for uploading my video on the org, I'll get around to doing that sometime in the next few days. Fair warning though: My video loses some of it's charm when viewed by individuals. Audience participation is part of what makes it appealing.

I received many comments regarding the Action category this year, but I think I can sum them up with this note I found scrawled on the back of one of the ballots as I was counting them:

This isn't the only contest prone to having that. Otakon's action entries were also dubstep city and I wouldn't be surprised if several end up as finalists. I do like dubstep, just in the right doses. I can totally see why it's attractive to edit to though.

I'm not going to lie; I've been listening to Light Years ever since I saw that Macross AMV during Action.

And I generally dislike WUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUB
