Katsucon 15 AMV Contest FINALISTS

Postby Editinghermit » Mon Feb 09, 2009 12:17 am

Hello again to everyone!

To those who were waiting for the list of finalists for Katsucon 15, I send out the staff's deepest apologies for our tardiness!

Here is a quick round-up of pre-screening info:

- Katsucon 15 received a total of 75 videos this year.

- I believe this was the BEST year in terms of video distribution per category. Each of the five categories had almost an equal amount of entries. The smallest category for this year in terms of entries was Romance. The largest was Upbeat (I think).

- Katsucon 15 had a total of 3 pre-screening sessions for the contest. A fourth pre-screening had been initialized, but was canceled due to the fact that the judging ballots would not have been received and tallied in time for the printing deadline for attendee voting ballots at con.

- This year's contest will feature the top seven videos in each category, for a total of 35 videos.

- At-con screening times will be noted below UNDER the finalists.

GOOD LUCK to all the finalists! Katsucon is VERY fortunate to have such a strong contest this year! It's gonna be a fight to win in EVERY category!

CONTEST SCREENING INFORMATION:

- The MAIN showing of the contest will be Friday (Feb. 13th), from 8pm - 11pm, in Main Events

- The SECONDARY showing of the contest will be Saturday (Feb. 14th), in both Video 1 and Video 2. Approximate time as of now is 2:45pm - 5:30pm. If you are attending the con, make sure you double check on Satuday when you are there for EXACT start time. This is due to the fact the screening was originally 9am, but the awesome staff at Katsu bumped up the AMV goodness! :D

- The AWARDS show will be held in Live 1, from 10pm - 11pm. As part of the show, the KMVA 15 Staff will be presenting its' newest independent film short for Katsucon, Pirates, Ninjas and Duels! Oh My!

- Unfortunately, there will be NO OVERFLOW screening this year for Katsucon 15. The AMV staff was made aware of this just recently due to extreme time restrictions this year for the Video Rooms at con. Trust me, the AMV staff sends out its' deepest apologies to any and all who were interested in participating in the Overflow Event.


THANK YOU SO MUCH again for everyone who participated!

If you are visiting the con, feel free to stop on by and say hi! Don't worry, Mike's safe! He only bites! :shock:

Oh, God, thank you, I got in... I wasn't all that nervous at first, but as the wait grew longer and longer, I got less and less sure of myself.... :?

AMV badges? Are ye referring to special seating, or is there a new thing now with cons, where AMV finalists are presented with the AMV Badge of Valor, which possess awesome powers?

If yes for the second question, then I need to acquire these badges! :D

I think he means like the kind they gave out at Otakon to the AMV contest participants - they (well, we *obligatory self-plug*) got a special badge that allowed us to bypass the AMV wait line and get into special seating- though I think you've heard about that, or if not, you've heard of a similar situation. Since I haven't heard about them, I doubt these exist for the contest?

As for the case of the second set of badges, however, if they don't already exist, you're the one in charge of the contest, dude, does that not grant you the magical power to create such AMV Badges of Valor? Either way, might I suggest the power that it grants be "instant video editing," where it magically installs adobe premiere into your head?

I want awesome powers!!! 8-) Especially considering how small the main events actually is.

Could you add Katsu to the org contest calendar? It's not listed up there yet.

Yeah the badge idea is cool, but I have like 3-4 friends that I hang with and also want to go. We're peas in a pod at these things. I forget how many badges each finalist for Otakon got last year, but I was generously offered one from a finalist, though I couldn't take it. Luckily we just walked right in and sat down. There were a lot of empty seats towards the front. I think it was because of the concert.

Otakon, you got two badges for friends... And how small do you think the main events hall is? :| I don't recall the main events hall being that much smaller than other conventions, or are they using a different room as the main events hall this year?
