AniMinneapolis 2013 AMV Contest - Full Playlists Posted!

Postby Megane Girl » Wed Jun 05, 2013 1:24 pm

Thanks to everyone who made the AniMinneapolis 2013 AMV Contest a success!!! :up:

Original announcement/call for submissions hidden here:
Spoiler :
So I contacted my local upcoming convention - AniMinneapolis 2013 (http://animinneapolis.com/) - to see if they would be having an AMV contest this year, but they unfortunately replied that no one on staff had stepped up to run one.

Well, I thought to myself, that just won't do! So I said to them, I says, hey! I'll run a contest! :awesome:

And now there's a contest! |:>

The only downside is that it's pretty last minute - DEADLINE IS 11:59pm CST FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 2013 (only one week before the convention)!

So take a look at the rules and eligibility requirements, dust off whatever you've got in editing storage, and help us make a great last minute contest! :)

And last but not least, the “overflow” contest entries, in no particular order (because I can’t remember the exact order in which we screened them). Note that these were cut from the contest due to time constraints and not due to any quality issues; these editors submitted more than one video to the contest, and when we ended up needing to limit the entries to one-per-editor, these editors chose their other entries to stay in the competition instead of these.

Editors - If you find any errors or if you would like any of your entry’s/entries' information changed, please let me know.

Finally, for anyone who is interested in such things, here is some information on the judging process and a special bit about the lone “normie” (read: non-otaku) judge.
Spoiler :
Since the contest was last-minute, most of the judges were people I knew personally and could count on to do the job right and quickly. (I was veeeery careful not to discuss the entries with any of them until they had finished judging – no coordinator bias!) One was a close friend and AMV enthusiast. One was an old college friend (currently living in Japan), an AMV enthusiast and connoisseur of live-action fanvids. One was the current AMV showcase runner for AniMinneapolis. And one was a film buff – but completely non-otaku “normie” – who also happened to be my brother. A little more on that in a bit.

The AMVs were scored out of ten points in four scoring categories:

Editing – technical skill – how cleanly was the footage cut, did the action match the beats, were the special effects (if any) well done, etc.

Editing – creativity – did the cuts mean something? were the shots pieced together to form a new idea? etc.

Choice of music/footage – rate the effect of combining that footage with that music, etc.

Overall effect – what was the AMV’s overall effect? do you think the editor achieved what s/he set out to do? etc.

After that, each judge had ten “bonus points” per category to distribute amongst the videos in that category as they saw fit (because sometimes you really love an AMV but just can’t explain why!).

So that’s how the scoring worked. I don’t present this as a perfect system, but rather an example – a lot of people expressed gratitude to me for stepping up and running this contest, so if there are other cons out there lacking AMV contests, maybe this system I’ve described here can give others a jumping off point for starting their own.

And now about my “normie” non-otaku film buff brother as a judge: first, he was already planning to accompany me to the con – just to see what this anime thing was all about – and he wrote about his experiences here (he does talk about the AMV judging experience): http://moviematrimonymn.blogspot.com/2013/07/reflections-of-normie-david-attends.html

Second, I think – and this is my personal opinion – that one of the marks of a great AMV is if it can be enjoyed even if the audience doesn’t know the source material. This isn’t true in all cases, of course, but many times I’ve viewed amazing AMVs - completely ignorant of the anime being used – and then been so enraptured by them that I have to go and find those series, just so I can enjoy those AMVs a bit more. My brother, of course, knew almost none of the source footage, so he was a true gauge of this quality.

Finally, my brother does love and study film – and what, really, are AMVs other than musical short films we create? I really do believe it is an art.

Thanks to all the participants, and congratulations to the winners!

This is relevant to my interests. I would have loved to see an AMV contest when I was at AniMinneapolis last year! So, I'm glad to see there will be one this year! Thank you! :D

I may not have enough time to make something completely new for it, though! Since we can submit two videos, I'll at least try to send in my most recent AMV!
