Congratulations to the finalists - I think there were around 186 (IIRC) videos entered into the contest so the top 10 videos have done very well.

Comiserations to those who didn't make it - including my Shamless Rock Video *sob*, I'm sure the competition was really tight this year. Better luck next time.

Oh and if anyone can explain what the end bit about "the following individuals...." means, I'd love to know ^_^;;;

The following individuals eh? I'm guessing that they won some sort of prize and the judges want to be able to give it away at the contest. *shrugs*
....Looks like my video didn't make it, oh well it was only my first one and there was this one sequence in it that I know I could have done better on. Oh well' I'll just have to work harder on my new video and try again next year.

They beat my estimate of when results would be announced by several hours! hehehe

None of my videos made the finals. Oh well. But now I get to go to the Yaoi/Yuri panel, and the Cowboy Bebop Movie. hehehe

In the "AX AMV Contest finalists will be emailed tonight..." post you said,

"um... there is a thread about this you know?"

I assumed you were implying to discuss getting into the contest here :oops:

It's an honor to have my video shown at the convention at all! :shock:
I have sinned. I made a video I wanted to make that was music + anime + sync + action + effects/transitions. Oh lordy. :roll:

If AX will handle the contest like last year and start with the Action videos....

I hope they don't play mine first :shock:

Regardless whenever they play mine, I'll duck under my seat...

Action??? man and I felt bad for entering my Sweating Bullets in as a Drama at Otakon... sure your video as a lot of action, but Acen it was the funniest video there. I am sorry, but putting that video into action imho is a grossly wrong since it uses the action to produce the COMEDY.

Thanks Joe, it means a lot.

I dont' relly care about the winning, I just wanted people to see it.

Oh well - AWA here I come.



BTW, there is much debate about this but everyone might be interested to note there are only 9 comdey finalists listed. We have yet to work out if this is intentional or a mistake.

We shall see, I guess.

Death Violence and Hate (in an All-Girls Dormitory with a Hot
Spring) - Senta Miller


That took up 2 lines so it probably threw a few people off.

I meant for it to be a fun action video but we'll see the reaction at AX...
