I thought the winner of Masters was the Challenger. (Think about the competitors for the past few years) I'm not saying Ian isn't a good choice, but that's how I thought it worked. Guess I was wrong. :)

It is usually the winner of Masters, yeah. Unfortunately the winner of masters was not at AWA this year.

Although I can't give an official reason, I think they wanted someone they could guarantee to be there and wanted to announce it at the con. I gave my assurances. Also, asking me to be the competitor allowed a little extra hype over the US vs UK thing so it was deemed a "good idea".

As far as I know of, Iron Chief is Quu's baby... to be a challenger you have to be able to prove to HIM that you can do it. Just cause you're a good AMV editor doesn't mean you can hack the pressure of making a vid in 2 hours.

Anyway.. I'll urge him to post here once I let him out of his 2 week seclusion. 8) He (and his nerves) need a break. Do you know how good it feels to have the house all to ourselves after 2 weeks of non-stop company? :shock: I loved AWA, but I'm glad it's over. ^_^

So speaks Quu2

True. And if I had been, and then been asked (bribed? threatened?)...I don't know. Two hours is not much, especially if Premiere is involved. On the other hand, if Hsien can do it with quarts of alcohol in him...hey, anything's possible :).

AD vs Kusoyaro sounds like a great matchup to me. From what little I've seen, I think the two of you have quite different editing styles. It could be very interesting. With some planning and a little luck, I'll be there to watch it unfold.

Very true. Especially with hundreds of people watching your every move.

I really never thought Masters had anything to do with it. The fact that I was the Challenger the year after I won Masters was a coincidence, i think. And last year, Joe just happened to be around afterwards when they were deciding on the Challenger.
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

After talking with Quu last night, this is exactly what happened. He confirms that he is the lone judge of who gets to be challenger and that it was simply coincidence that it was the previous year's winner of Masters.

So basically, if you want to do Iron Chief, you have to bribe Quu and prove you don't mind having a couple hundred people watching over your shoulder and having the Judges poke fun at you while you're trying to work.

Which reminds me... Everone please encourage and buy stuff from the Sponcer this year. He REALLY wants to come back next year, and all he has to do is break even... but if he can't even do that then he can't justify doing it again next year. Also, they will be putting out a DVD with the DDR track and the Iron Chief vids on it. It will be avalable only for the cost of shipping I believe. More details will be on the sponcer's website and will be posted here eventually.

What's the link to the sponsers website? is it www.expertdv.com ?

if so I've been surfering around for that little controller that they gave Hsien and Joe and I can't find it on their site. I might be interested in buying that from them, possibly just help out on bringing them back. I think editors could be interested in that little device too.

basically... its inperation

you have to impress me... and... it has to click...

I was wracking my brain... trying to figure out who would be a good challenger... honestly so many choices... and i was super worried they would nto show up next year (way to many awards getting mailed out

when I passed ian in the back of the vat... it just clicked...

I asked him... and he agreed...

that is basically how it work... right place, right time right editor...

I basically look for who will put on a good show... not who is "the best"

its a show after all... (of course you have to be good... )

Kwasek: in terms of this conversation.. the editing controller is made by "Contour Designs" ShuttlePro I belive is what its called.. I love it.. it's best $100 bucks I've spent so far for my editing system. You can buy it directly from website.. B&H or as Joe told me.. from the Apple Store.. or in spirit of this forum post.. ZPC/ExpertDV.

Everyone: For those who are going to use it on a Win2K or NT4 platform.. email me.. I have a little a script I use with it to fix the driver software when it goes south on me in premiere.. (you don't even need restart, it's great). Plus I've also gone through the effort of laying out my own configuration.. in case anyone wants a copy of my profiles for premiere and such.

the video guys have the shuttlepro controller for $89 and you can even get it for $69 from them if you buy a capture card, pretty good deal, bought mine at NAB 2001 when they first came out, pretty cool, works well with after effects and macromedia director so I'm happy...
