Anime Milwaukee 2008 amv contest (Winners announced)

This forum is for the announcement and discussion of anime music video contests.

Deadline is coming up this Friday!
I have 11 vids right now, and a few more on the way.
we've gotten a good sum of videos for drama/romance, and a few for comedy.
I think that there's only one entry for action at this point, and none for trailer.

it's not too late, and if I don't get enough videos to fill two hours I'll have to do something drastic...like put IT'S OVER 9000!!! on loop for the rest of the time, or force everyone to do the haruhi dance sequence.

Oh no, lol! If I had known that you weren't getting a lot of videos, I would have tried sending two other videos before the deadline. I'm sure you probably got more than you expected towards the very end though since they usually come flooding in last minute. :P

Out of curiosity, are you going to announce the finalists before the convention? I tried looking for the forums on the Anime Milwaukee website to post this question, but can't seem to find where the forums are located on the site. :oops:

I actually chose not to host forums on the anime milwaukee site (causes tons of problems from what I heard, and I don't have time for that...oh yeah, I'm the webmaster for the site as well)

I guess I can post the final lineup...
There are 23 videos to be shown (there were a few more submissions, but I didn't get a video for some....got youtube links for a few, and got an episode of darker than black for another)
videos I could find here are linked

Finalists (in no particular order)
Action:
Subsonic -CrackTheSky
Center Forward -Yusf
Mortal Kombat, Fate Style -Yatta Dante
The Evolution of Paradise -Chibiroth

Comedy:
Kaibutsu Polka -Geirr
The Anime Network -Ranmafan477
Jurassic Eva -Ranmafan477

Trailer:
Inuyasha's 300 -Samurai Jake
Universal SOLDIER -Yatta Dante
Gundam Rangers -Yatta Dante (I think this is the one)
Silence of the Vampires -Samurai Jake

Drama/Romance:
Sayonara -MeliChan923
Hypnerotomachia -Yusf
Say It's True -CrackTheSky
Lily-white -Yusf
At The Beginning -DJ Firewolf
It's an Outlaw's Life -Chibiroth
Wolves Going Under -Chibiroth
Two Sisters -Samurai Jake
Utena's Broken Heart Revisited -Ranmafan477

Exhibition:
d!gital me -CrackTheSky (originally submitted to drama/romance, but I didn't think it was...so it got moved to exhibition)
Rainbow Revolution -Vellure
Attack of the Otaku -Chiikaboom

All of the exhibition videos are really good, it made me feel bad that I didn't have a category for them...so, disregarding the contradiction, there may be a prize awarded for "Best Exhibition" as well

Yeah, I've heard that there are all sorts of glitches with them, so it could be for the best. At least I don't feel stupid anymore, lol :P

Thanks a bunch for posting the finalists! I am so happy I got in. You've made my week! :D I've seen a few of those videos before and they are absolutely amazing. It's sure going to be a great contest. Congrats and good luck to all the finalists! :up:

(I'll try my hardest to get my video posted up here within the next week)

congrats to all the winners, but you also fail for not showing up to claim "the prize" :evil:
The competition for Drama/Romance was especially close, the winner and runner-up being separated by 0.1 points (the average was taken from all 4 judges who could give a max of 10 points in 5 categories)

Thanks to all who participated for a good field of videos.
...now if I could have only gotten my laptop to play it back without freezing up (the videos must've been too awesome for it to handle or something)

Ha ha, I won in my category, and got runner up in the same category, lol.

Yah, couldn't actually attend the con, so no prize for me. :P
