Good luck to those in the finals!

I think it was mostly just the judges preference to talk about porn that made it difficult for people to watch. People wanted hentai... and BLOOD! *_*


I should have been a part of that then. :shock:

I yelled for them to play PFS... I still don't know why they didn't listen. *shrugs*

Ahh well the judges at ACen (From what I'm told, I was fairly focused on editing) were fairly intoxicated and they did a gameshow (since Greggo was one of the judges) and that had audience participation...thus people stayed. They also showed a few AMVs from me and my competitor.

Odd that they did things differently, but oh well I bet you guys had fun.

Well, there certainly wasn't a game show (even though I did find myself on stage at one point) but they were showing AMVs by Justin, Tim, and (mostly) Brad. That was kinda wierd, but Patrick was picking 'em, so I really can't blame Brad for it. Well, I'll try anyway! ~_^

Yeah the gameshow added A LOT of life to our event as well as the intoxication on both the judges and err...challenger's end ;).

As for videos, Patrick went through the standard stuff like Right Now, Odorikuruu and so on and then a few from the two of us since well..we were the two they were watching...

Either way sounds fun and I'm upset I wasn't there to cheer on Tim.

It was really fun. I'm not sure why, but it was, and I stuck around all 3 hours. I got on stage, and stayed there until Patrick shued me off. Justin wasn't so engrossed that he couldn't hear it when EK's video started playing, because the first time you hear the "UH!" sound, he did the whole pelvis thrust. He could here it just fine.
Tim told us afterward that the headphones had a sound protection feature thing, that he didn't figure out how to us until the verry end.
Apparently "Weapon of Choice" works a little better when the theme is guns, eh? ^_^

Wait a second, they got sound-protection headphones?! ARGH! For the first 10 minutes of Iron Chef at ACen I couldn't even hear my music since the speakers were A) right next to the computers and B) really freaking loud! Hopefully we'll get some next year...ACen...so ghetto :-P

I hella want to see if I can challenge Tim next year for Fanime, but I don't know if they would let a lightweight like me do it. ^_^

Well it's not a "challenge" or anything. You are hand-picked by Quu. There's no real set qualifications or challenging involved. If Quu thinks you'd make a good challenger based on a number of things (to which I am clueless), he picks you.

Those were the ambiguous reasons I was chosen for ACen. He hasn't even told me any specifics :-P

As for being a lightweight, I think of myself as the same since I've been doing this for about a year. But at the same time, I was able to do alright regardless of my "Normal AMV" skillset, so don't downplay your abilities by some stupid thing like "time" or "experience." One thing I learned from this entire contest is that anything can happen and that there are no "definites" (like a "great" editor doing great in the contest). Even if you're capable of making a great video...making a great video in two hours requires different skills. Also, there are a lot of factors that can tip the balance like the secret ingredient (mine was something I could easily use) and theme.

Good luck to you though!

Well again, it's Quu's baby. He makes all the decisions. It sounds like a reasonable request, but again..he makes his decisions and God only knows the reasons :).

I didn't have time to do the lipsyncs. Sorry.

How would I do a lipsync with a guy with a mask on? Turn his eye lights on and off. Like KITT.

It woulda been cool. Trust me.

So when is the ExpertDV person gonna get back to you about getting you the Master? It took about a week or two for Quu to get mine. I look forward to seeing how bad my video is in comparison to yours :-P

Uhm...you have seen my video right? The best part is the closing bumper because I was stupid enough to put that charicature of myself on it. Well...the song too.

I'm 95% sure it's great. I mean you did win and against a worthy opponent.

BTW, it would appear you got your feedback for your Otakon video :-D. It would appear I was wrong on a few things, which is actually a good thing :).
