G-AMV 2014

Postby ProjectBarcodeError » Mon Nov 25, 2013 7:32 pm

G-Anime is proud to announce its upcoming AMV contest (Anime Music Video). AMVs are videos created by amateur based on a chosen song and Japanimation scenes. It’s a way of redrawing anime and music in the way a creator would like and this contest is a great opportunity to share this wonderful passion among otakus.

I forgot to specify: it can be any size you want, but considering the fact that we have a limited amont of time for the screening, AMVs over 6 minutes will be penalized if we lack time to put it.


i'll correct the sentence to make it more clear. thanks for the info. ;)
