for the nomination stage I voted very generally/broadly for parody... for all categories actually... I already knew which videos I'd be voting for in finals...

The other two, I kind of see as parodies of parodies.. but I didn't vote for either in finals >.>

What is the audio from 9 a parody of? I wasn't aware the audio was a parody of anything, as it seemed to me to just be an original sketch.

I haven't watched Bashar's video yet (on my phone atm), but it's not the song use that will make a parody recognizable, (You could make a parody using an entirely different song even >_>) it's styling the footage after the original. That's the advantage shin's video has in that respect. Mine is too simple.

I agree with the fact that the song doesn't make it a parody, but it helps if the audio is relatively unused because people will tend to associate it with one video. In my post I was simply pointing out a few reasons why people didn't make the connection, not pointing out that it WASN'T a parody.

.... which is what I'm adding to. :p

The "freshness" of a song can add to a parody's chance of being recognized, but, really, what designates something as a parody and not as just another video to the same song?

ish...Yeah I donno, that's the phone text one isn't it? I don't remember each video by numbers... sorry. Heck if I know... maybe it's people mixing up parody with comedy again? But i guess I kinda saw it as a parody of an original sketch? ish?

I donno I voted for several in that category... but as I said, I didn't vote for either of the two that are getting complaints for the final... but now there's a 50/50 guess as to what I did vote for :P

Well with how poorly edited 97 was, I hope it wasn't that one....

Video footage was way overfiltered and ugly as sin, but other than that all my complaints are very, very minor. One of the most emotional videos in the contest that I've watched so far and one of my favorites. Just really, really great editing choices all around. 4.5/5

BEST. COMPLIMENT. EVAR!

(that was mine btw)


I nominated your video for a couple categories as well...

Of everyone I talked to about this video, I think I was the only one that really saw this as a direct reference (The breathing scene was a dead giveaway to me.)
that being said, there are so many Radioactive videos that the only things that distinguished Ileia's from most others were that it was really damn well edited and that it was the first, so your video looked like it was mostly just a reasonable video with that song and had little connection to the original.
The difference between this and Extraball is that Extraball had the types of effects that immediately distinguish it from any other video, and when those effects were replicated in your video you couldn't not see that it was a parody, this one was far more missable.

Much like that Dance 9.0 video I submitted last year, problem was people didn't realize it was a parody and actually thought Nate submitted it. :awesome:

I'm not telling you what I voted for. And the same goes for all the categories. I was only trying to explain why I believed the other two made it in the category.

Besides I don't need to justify MY VOTES to you or anyone. :P They are my choice, my votes, my criteria.

I know what you were doing and I was not asking you to reveal anything. My comment was mostly me commenting on how I feel lazy/poor editing that completely ignores basic editing fundamentals shouldn't be rewarded.
