AuN First video contest - FINALIST! / ONLINE VOTING 8/26-9/2

Postby Bakadeshi [AuN Studios] » Thu Aug 26, 2004 9:18 pm

And the Top 5 as reviewed by the judges are:
Here are the top 5 videos (plus one I picked = 6) that the Judges voted highest on, in no particular order:


Sivis - Sotajuutso
Jupiter_kingdom - The Reason
Dymatrex - The man who still greives
xpinkpantiesx - The quiet things that no one ever knows
Ab-109 - Gaara vs Lee
Sky_william - Wish you were Here


How the videos were judged:

The videos were judged by 2 diferent judges, (originally was 3, but third one had to drop out last minute) based on overall quality (visually/audio), Mood/feel, Effort, and Editing quality. These scores were tabulated together to make an average, similar to the olympics, then the average for the 2 judges were then tabulated together for the overall average. The top 5 averages were chosen to compete online, plus one that I picked from the ones that didn't make it. (I added this since the third judge dropped out.) There is also an Judges award to any video the judge wants to give it to, but this will be anounced after the online voting is complete. Judge#1 is technically minded, and has seen some excellent videos in the past to compare to. He is mildly strict on scores, but rates more on techncial prowess than anything else. Judge#2 is not as technically inclined, but likes a good story/mood, and especially likes when the song is matched well with the footage. (lyrical sync) She rates more on feel than anything else.


What you must now do:
ONLINE VOTING!!!! (AUGUST 26th - September 2nd 2004)
Thats right, its now your turn to decide who will be the winner in this little contest. You have between today (aug 26th) through Sep 2nd to download the 6 videos above, and PM me your favorite. Online voting is stricly based on wich is your favorite, no scores. the judges scores for the finalists and their judge award picks will be posted after online voting is complete.

REMEMBER, PM the votes to me! DO NOT POST THEM HERE.
It is supposed to be private anonymous voting. ALL members of the org are open to voting. Participants in the contest are also encouraged to vote. You may (and are encouraged to) vote on your own video if you think it is the best, ala AWA Pro style.


LET THE VOTING BEGIN!


[ps: Also if a mod could sticky this just for the week of the voting, it would be appreciated ^_^]

Curse my desire to create a pointless action video. I guess some people like to see some story in an AMV.

Anyway, I'm looking over the videos and I will send in my vote soon.

To everyone who wants to watch my AMV:

SORRY! I dunno what's up! I can't really do anything about it right now because I'm getting ready to go back to school soon...

So, yeah...sorry, but Bakadeshi is being friendly enough to host the vid on her site for this week...

Those are some pretty sweet videos considering it is a "first video" competition.

I wasn't expecting them to be so good. :)

I think this just proves that no-one actually reads sticky topics ;)

Indeed Sivis, Sticky topics are rather intimidating lol.

Anyways, I've watched all of the movies, and I must say, the decision is tough. I'm gonna have to go through them once more to actually decide. Besides, it's pretty close, each vote counts.

But besides that, I wish all of you good luck. You've all made great AMVs, you all deserve to win. Can't we make a little acception this time and have only first places this time Bakadeshi? Lol j/k, even though it would be great wouldn't it?

Ive gotten a few more votes, but I'd like maybe 5-10 more, at least 5, to make it a more rounded competition. (not to mention theres a tie for 3rd place atm.) I'm contemplating an extension of the voting deadline, But I'lll probably only do that if I deem it realy neccisary to be fair to the participants. And If I feel that extension will actually get me more votes.
