Yes, I was also a judge also (thanks to all those who voted for me)...
AND YES, I myself watched every video in the semifinals of the categories I could vote for and made sure they all got a fair assessment - I made myself comments of each of them as well! (good thing about that is I got a lot more great videos for the AMV rooms I run!). Lots of good stuff!
I agree with pretty much all the choices!
ALSO, I would like to point out I disagree with JCA>VCA.. I think they compliment each other and are equally valid as both sets of choices are good And remember is was viewers that generated the semi-finalist list that we watched to begin with.
I would like to see more original MEP with a bit more variety... I thought pretty much all of the MEPs really had excellent editing and sync, but in many cases seemed to be in similar style with similar flashy effects and pace. That not to say all were like that as there were some AWESOME concepts, just a observation in general. Do keep up the good work!
