AWA 8 Winners

Postby TnAdct1 » Sun Sep 29, 2002 1:13 am

So, does anyone know the winners of the AMV contests at AWA 8 (Expo, Pro, Masters, and Dance Contest)? I'm pretty sure the winners have been announced now, and I myself and anxious to know who won.

Hmm...I must be not recieving all the e-mails from the list. Anyway, as for the results, I agree with them for the most part. I think everyone of those videos deserved their respective award save for one. The only one on teh list I dont like is Engel to Trigun video, I didn't think it was very good personally but oh well. At least I agree with everything else.

Correction, the Trigun/Engel video was edited by Nathan Bezner. I was co-editor. Oh, and paizuri and Buddy Lee helped us accept the award. Maybe Triumph was there too, can't remember. Too tired. Just got back. Sleep now.

I don't remember the creators, as I was simply paying attention to the videos aired that night (they showed half of them at the second expo showing kind of without notice), but here are the concepts I can remember off of the top of my head.

Best Trailer: Spiderman trailer with footage of Love Hina and Eva
Award title I forget name of: Scatman with DBZ Footage
Artistic Endeavor: I forget the song, but it had Hellsing and actually included scenes from the Manga (kickass editing, by the way).
Action: Evangelion, The Lady's Got Potential

Bleh, sorry if I'm incorrect on any of them and that I can't remember the rest...

In other news, am I the only one who will never view Totoro the same way again?

hehe I know I do... Nat didn't even vomit in our room after a great deal of booze and that is control!!! Hsien on the other hand the year before hmmm well that is another story not for all the kiddies. :twisted: muwhahahaa but I will love Nat even more if he pays up the $50 he bet me on winning best of show! :lol: I am evil...

anyway, congrads to all that won and those who were nominated as well as all that participated in AWA. Let's not try to focus on who won what and why it shouldn't should have won since it won't accomplish anything. I know some great videos that didn't even get shown, somehow were obviously lost or neglected in the reviewing process. No contest is perfect (not even AWA) just remember to have fun... that was my plan in the iron chef contest and had a blast! I wanted to give the crowd a good show and didn't care if I won or lost. Both Hsien and myself came up with very different vids and from the reactions it was a great show for everyone. It would have been nice to have won, but that isn't the end all be all to what we do and I was more happy pleasing the crowd for a change. I doubt many people that know me thought they would live to see the day when I would say something like that... it was like when Kevin agreed with me about his BAV video lol!

It was also very cool that our room (Jason, Alan, and myself) became the amv party room on Saturday night and nobody trashed it all to hell. I hope next year we will get a suite so it won't be so cramped.

In closing, from now on at any con I think that Hsien Lee must have a airplane vomit bag on his person at ALL TIMES!!!! That and I will need some kid on a newspaper bike following Nat / Nightowl saying "I want my $50!" lol :idea: heheh maybe I will have Nat pay it off in booze for the next ultimate AMV party!!! :twisted:

Anyway, it was really cool spending time with everyone and I wish I had more time to hangout with everyone more. That and Ubernostrum helped me add a new cult phrase in the amv community such as the likes of Hubba Hubba Zoot Zoot!!!!
