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.



Good to know I have fans.

I can't believe the amount of amv creator's names that are popping up at at best this and that - I've hardly heard of any of them :?

....and all this time i thought noone was paying attention to people without big names.... seems I'm the only one. Never fear, I'll manage to get some vids in to cons, then you'll see....muahahaha*cough, plutter*

To add to the lists above there were also some guest awards at the closing ceremony. I don't recall all of the people who gave the awards but videos that won something were:


Hsien's Sappy Self Indulgence
Anneke's Kenshin oav2 video from the pro contest
the Careless Whisper vid from Pro
the TomServo3k video Trouser Snake won something too I think
ack that's all I remember.

Oh, and the Totoro video from masters won crowd favourite IIRC


Anyway, there were tons and tons of great videos at awa. Seriously, everyone was a winner this year even if they didn't get awards. There was some really great stuff.

Ah, last year they did VAT guest awards during Iron Chef, I believe. Mine would have gone to Jason Salce's Amelie-WotH video. A good video if you haven't seen Amelie, a phenomenal video if you have.
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

I still cannot believe I won that... My hands are still shaking..

That German band's name was "E Nomine" and the song is "Vater Unser (Radio Edit)"

It was the second AMV I ever made.. and I truly didn't believe it will get this far.. This is a dream come true...

Croatian, right?"

If the AMV had lyrics "I'm slightly deranged" then the Footage used wasn't "Initial D" but "Excel Saga" the bands name is "The Beat Fleet"...
It's just that there aren't much Croatian AMVs out there.. could it be that people liked it?

My video, For Kaoru won something or atleast was acknowledged, wow.
Thanks for letting me know. I guess I better go back and clean it up some, as I really put that video together very quickly (and it has several flaws for the technically minded people out there). It was a quick labor of love. It's just a character profile. I figured if I was going to be acknowledged for anything I would have been acknowledged for 'Most Yaoi videos submited'. <Grin> As I sent 3 of my 4 Yaoi videos to the convention. hehehe.

And how about the "mature" contest? :twisted:
"If someone feels the need to 'express' himself or herself with a huge graphical 'singature' that has nothing to do with anything, that person should reevaluate his or her reasons for needing said form of expression, possibly with the help of a licensed mental health practitioner."

Qua?

Postby MCWagner » Tue Oct 01, 2002 8:23 pm

The "mature" contest? Qua? What is this of which you speak?

(Jbone, Mexicanjunior...dudes...you raised your right hands and everything..... :? )

In all seriousness...that was a screening, not a contest. Any video entered in a contest competed in that contest. I lucked out in the end that the overly-mature videos didn't win awards, or I'd have been forced to do a "this one one....but I can't show it to you" at the ceremony. I wasn't kidding when I said the Fatboy slim video was a strong contender for best timing...

Incidentally, Wired, the Grainyness... It's intentional. Haven't you picked up on the fact that there is more than one way to express and idea or intention in Music Videos yet? Some of us out there are *TRYING* to be different. ;)
...IT'S <gasp>
