Well for one they don't say names till after its done, so your not thinking the whole time. This is a Flux video, or this is a Vlad video. 2nd and more important for many contests is to make it more about the video and not the bumper. So someone with a simple white text on black isn't at a disavantage to someone with flashy titles and bumpers, or 3d effects and such. Everyone gets the same intro.

can someone post all the songs used in all the finalist videos? I really enjoyed those songs, some of the best choices i've seen for some times.

I voted for you. :D
The thing you have to realize is that the whole drama category played horribly at AX this year. It was too late at night, and making people watch really moving sentimental pieces doesn't make much sense.
Also, and I especially noticed this because I submited 3 videos to the drama category and they were all rejected, the whole AX crowd really loved lyric synch, even the cheap crappy lyric synch. Center of the Sun was a very good lyric synch based AMV, which really gave it a huge advantage over rhythm based concepts. Oh well, ya' live and ya' learn. :D

But Vlad had both Lyric sync AND rhythm based concepts. This is why I like it :). Then again I am a sappy fellow too :). Oh well Vlad, better luck next year. If it's any consolation, I liked it :-P...oops that's no consolation at all :).

Thanks...

Quite honestly, I don't really try to do things in my video to play to a crowed. If Lip syncing is required then fine, but I try to make the video to the vision I think works for it...

Center of the Sun was just really pretty and flowed really well, I think thats why it won not lyric sync :l

I don't have the votes, and I'm told the stats will be available, but I really think your Eternal Damnation came close in action. My roomie loves it @_@

P.S. They had to cut the first few seconds of ur vid since u incorperated ur name in it. And those were cool seconds o_o


I actually cut those out myself. I don't want to anger the amv gods by breaking rules. :P I sense a lot of retina's being burnt with hellsing imagery... muhahaha.

So Vlad, it's all about the love of editing right? (Or are you collecting trophies to melt down to create a super laser? :P)

:D

I have sinned. I made a video I wanted to make that was music + anime + sync + action + effects/transitions. Oh lordy. :roll:

Are you talking about Eternal Damnation? I made the contest DVDs that the competition played off of and I don't recall truncating any part of anybody's video. (Rechecking E.D.) Yup, Eternal Damnation played in its entirety based upon the source footage I was given. There's even 2 seconds of black lead-in.

I did want to truncate the end of "Chibi Things That Kill" and the start of "In the Mind Of a Hinata Inn Manager" because I felt they weren't really part of the music video as defined in the rules, but James said not to so I didn't.

Ashton wrote:This really confused me. They have a thing about not disclosing the names of the editors, and that's a good thing, but why, then, did they bring the editors on stage after their video was played?


The creators would get pissy if their names weren't mentioned at -some- point. ^_^

It's generally pretty safe to mention them after the video, it's before the video when its the most volatile. They aren't mentioned at the start because, if you think about it, knowing who did it can somewhat influence your opinion of a video before you even watch it.

Getting back to that bit about me making the contest DVDs...: Just to give you a heads up, I'm not on the AMV staff. I am on AX staff, but I have zero influence over the AMV competition (James went to great lengths to ensure that, in fact). I simply offered to make the contest DVDs as a favor to take some work off of James' overworked hands. Also, my comments are my own and at no point do my comments ever represent AX.

The Drama category played first. Doesn't get much sooner than that. Yeah, the contest was late by two hours, but the contest runs late all the time, even when it starts ON time (hope that makes sense...) ^_^

Also, and I especially noticed this because I submited 3 videos to the drama category and they were all rejected, the whole AX crowd really loved lyric synch, even the cheap crappy lyric synch. Center of the Sun was a very good lyric synch based AMV, which really gave it a huge advantage over rhythm based concepts. Oh well, ya' live and ya' learn. :D


I have to disagree with you. In Center of the Sun I can only remember one scene which had anything that even resembled lip synch, and the scene I'm speaking of didn't even -intend- for it to have lip synch.

The scene I'm speaking of where the lyrics go "They say the most horrible things" and the guy's lips are moving. The creator's intent wasn't to lip synch, it was to depict someone saying 'horrible' things.

He never said lip synch. He said lyric synch.
ie: matching visuals to lyrics, as opposed to ignoring them as some videos do.
