When I saw how many really talented people did not make the cut, I knew that this was a tough competition. If your video didn't make it, don't be discouraged. If you loved making your video, that is the most important thing. If even one other person loves it, it doesn't matter if the whole world hates it. Your video is a success. Winning a contest or getting great ops is nothing compared to the reward of the joy of the work and the appreciation of just one person who "gets it."

Keep up the great work, everyone, and best of luck to all my fellow editors in the finals.

Oh, and many thanks to Vlad for a really professional looking job. I am sure that the event will be wonderful. If I could be there, we could sit around and sip adult beverages and trade arthritis medication.


Yes, I quite agree with you and that is the way I look at contests when I enter...

And thanks for the compliment, as an editor myself I try to run the best contest I can. This year for the actual contest, I got two computers (one backup as the contest is played via a netstream), a DVD set and a good old fasion SVHS backup just in case everything else goes wrong. Rest assured, every video will play in it's entirty (crosses fingers) :wink:

Matt Pyson (Otakon's past contest coord) put it the best way... running an event at a con is like going to the moon, if you forget something it's too late to go back and get it

Wow, now that is a quote I have to take into heart...

I'm running a convention competition too, and I'm hoping my current schedules in life will not make me have to do this half-assed... oh, and yeah, congrats to all... may the force be with you.

The guys from Epical Studios seem to have had members who were there as viewers and as such they've posted in a list of winners, though I do not know as to how accurate this is and nor do they. Here's the link: http://forums.digitalsloth.net/showthre ... #post15656

Nobody grill me if this was suppose to be a surprise or they are inaccurate... this is just what I read :P

and kudos goes to Castor Troy for turning a personal most hated song into one of the best videos I've seen, truly a master of the art.


I didn't win anything but that's good enough for me! :D

Congrats to all the winners!
