AMV Drama category

Postby Kalean » Mon Jul 08, 2002 12:26 pm

*Waves* sounds like the AMV contest was exceptionally harsh. My drama video didn't make it there due to .. technical difficulties.. to put it mildly. But then again for all I know the others were better. I've only seen Enigma off the list currently, I plan on watching the others. I'm glad I didn't go though, because I only would've had time for 1 day, and that would've been the anime music video contest that was postponed, and I would have been screwed -.-;; Sounds like AX went downhill this year. I know they've got a lot of work they're doing, and actual normal jobs too, but if it's this hard, they should just get their company to pay professionals to do this stuff :P Oh well. Rant is over.. Sorry they screwed you over, Evil boy. Enigma is a very artistic video.. but you HAVE kind of been pimping it from what I hear ^^ I hear this makes .. 8 conventions now? Forgive me if that's not true, or even if it is ^^ I'm sure you've won a few with it by now, or should have. Just move on and make an even better video and send it out to all the cons you know of. *waves* Ja ne.

What do people do "on the panel"? I always hear stuff about guest panels and amv panels and judge panels. What do they do?

Quick Ques

Postby Raynovac » Mon Jul 08, 2002 3:55 pm

I have a question for everyone. Did anyone have problems getting their tickets to the AMV contest? I did. Since I wanted to go to the concert for Yoko Ishida, since I love her music, I neede to go to the con ops area to pick up my tickets. They checked a list of names and they couldn't find my name or my video on the list. I was wondering "wtf." I had to go to Brian and he couldn't find my either. Then he checked the submissions list because I know I sent it before the deadline. He found my name there but still didnt give me my tickets. He said he was really busy right then and would look into it later. So after the concert I went back to him in the con ops area and talk to him again. He totally forgot about me and I had to re-explain the situation. Then he remembers and instead of telling me what went wrong, he just gives me the tickets. Then later whle waiting the long a$$ time, I can to the conclusion that they didnt even LOOK at my video. Thats why I was on the submision list but not the actual list of creators. I talk to my friends in my anime club and they that my video is better than a few videos in the catagory that I submited my video to. I'm still entering another video next year but my respect in the AX contest dropped really low. Tell me if anyone else had this problem.

P.S. hey EvilVegettoZ. If you live in the Woodland Hills area, then come to CSUN Anime club or check out our website at www.csunanime.com

Well, despite what a cluster fuck the amv contest was I still had a good time. The convention didn't hold a candle to AX's gone by, but it's nice when you're with friends who can make the best out of any situation.
I was actually on the balcony near the guy who threw the infamous screen piercing paper airplane. He had a running start and tossed it really hard. When it hit the screen I think he was kind of shocked, then turned around and hauled ass out of the theatre. LOL
I'd also like to say thanks to everyone who cheered for my video, it made me all warm and fuzzy inside :D I have to agree that the comedy category was a bit weak compared to last year. If it had been up against the magnitude of last years entries I doubt it would have been in the top two. Never-the-less, I couldn't have asked for better feedback.
Congratulations to all the winners, they deserved it!

Next I'm gonna try to sponsor a 3rd party award for the "Best AMV from a guy or gal we don't know", basically it'll be an award for the finalist who didn't win ANYTHING yet had a good video and we aren't familiar with that person.... now I just gotta figure out how and where to make a trophy...

It was the one with trillions of eyeballs. The guy running through the snow (with the transparent head) and the giant face that bitches him out.

Good idea there ^_^

Anyway, I didn't even go to the contest. We were in the massive mob in the evening and we left around nine when we thought a fight was going to break out and somepeople next to us tried to take down a sign and the place.
We didn't know about the 8 AM thing, and had to leave early sunday.

I did attend the Masq (Lucky story..I'll post at the AX board about it) so at least I saw the finalists.

The best experience was the AMV panel. All four of those creators had inspired me to create AMVs and it was wonderful to hear them talk about stuff. Everyone was nice (I was the girl in the front dressed as Subaru from Tokyo Babylon)

But the worst experience was trying to get my AMV tickets. My name wasn't on the list. I had the confirmation email and everything.
Name not on list means video disqualified.

NO ONE HAD NOTIFIED ME OR KAHMELON THAT OUR VIDEOS HAD BEEN DISQUALIFIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In fact, we got the e-mail saying our videos had not been disqualified.

After some arguing, we got our tickets. then the massive mob. I have a pic of the massive mob.

AX will be getting an angry letter from me. :evil:
