My "Come to Daddy (Bear Mix)" video can be. It's up on my website.

Aww, thank you fungie :) Actually I saw Digital God's video and I really liked it better than my own. I got to party with mckeed, jbone and digital god. You guys were really fun to hang out with :) I learned one of mckeed's new favorite phone activities at the amv awards announcements :wink: ...won't say what it was though *snickers*

Matt Pyson said the honorable mentions and 2nd place videos should be released in about a week by email. I'll post the results here if someone doesn't beat me to it.

Quu saw my amv badge so I met him and saw Duane. And I saw someone in the 1:00 Saturday showing of the contest with the badge...but I didn't catch them to ask who it was.

After I rest I will write a full con thingy report. But after I sleep.

The Otakon contest this year was quite nice. Mad props to Matt and Duane for organizing it. Hopefully their reward for doing a good job includes a good night's worth of sleep. Finally met both Matt for the first time, and he looked extremely tired.

I wish I had the resources to print out Misty's badge, but I had already gone to MD by the time that it was posted and was out of luck. Wound up meeting DIGITALGOD, mckeed, jbone, and a couple others even without the badges. After seeing Hsien on the panel, I think he might've been the one that I sat next to during the first amv contest that I watched at Otakon 1999. I remember commenting to a friend that it'd be cool to be able to get a copy of the tape, and I think it was Hsien overheard and made a comment to the effect of "I used a great way of getting a tape of the contest video, I have a video in the contest and get a tape for it." This started me on the road of amv creation, so when my videos bore people or cause people to wince just remember that I wouldn't have started making them without having the incentive get the contest tape.

I would be very sad if his soul stopped burning, cause then the Otakon amv contest wouldn't be the same again.

Wow, I must've been really tired at the Panel, cause I claim to have seen 2 Matts. ;)

The contest was damn good this year, I enjoyed all the videos, but the ones that really stood out to me was the Outlawstar video done to Drops of Jupiter (As I probably said a million times on the panel). I loved Aluminum's Land of Confusion video, I was shocked that didn't win, and Tim always cracks me up, good to see a Dennis Leary video surface. :)
Oh yeah, and Senta's video was dead on with the editing, crazy skillz. :)

Good to see everyone as always, although I was only there on Saturday, maybe next year I can free myself from work long enough to go for two days. :)

I agree. Then contest this year was really good. I actually had a tough time voting for some categories.

The videos were great this year. I thought the speed racer video was a little distasteful for a family con, but then again, I didn't really like America Pie either. ^_^

Bogosort, Misty, great videos. I really enjoyed them.

Misty, thanks for the badge. I wore mine, but didn't see anyone else at Otakon with them :( The con was great though (I got Asuka's autograph! well, the US voice actress for her at least)

All, my video (Huntress - that's the Noir video that was in the finals) can be downloaded through my profile. If you have problems, just email me. Brinkster gives me problems sometimes.

Also, according to Matt, the complete voting results (including tally) will be available on the website soon. I'm interested to see how my video placed. ^_^

hey zerophite, your video rocked and got my vote! if conventions had a "horror" category, i might suggest it go there, but i think it works in either "action" or "drama". the intensity and speed of your video made it ok to be listed as "action", anyway. i wish it would have won, cause you deserve much praise for making it. ^_^; i'll need to give you a review soon.

congrats to all the winners and participants!
