Alright, folks! Here is the big moment! The FINAL results of the contest!!!!

A few quick notes:

1.) Our second screening on Saturday afternoon was in Video 1 and Video 2. BOTH ROOMS were filled to the max! We were trying to fill in folks for standing room only until Security told us to stop!

Congrats to the runner-ups and winners!! I enjoyed the contest immensely this year.

@ Mike, Brian and all of the other coordinators: you guys did a great job with "Pirates, Ninjas and Duels! Oh My!". Definitely a bonus treat for us awards attendees!! And it was a pleasure meeting everyone 8-)

Can't wait for Katsu16!! It's already on the calendar.

Pardon my German, but that was some crazy shit. I gotta know how you did all that...

On another note, I was satisfied with the audience reactions to "Me Wuvs You." It got pops in all the expected places (especially the end). Is there a way to know where we all came in; at least what the vote tallies were?

I never got to be around for "Go Ask Haruhi," though. Can anyone tell me how it was received? It's officially retired now, being a full year in circulation come April (my next attended con). I'm just chagrinned that it had to go out so quietly.

After the awards show, the fact no runners-up were announced made me wonder if the separation between first and second places were that far apart or if it just didn't matter. I'm convinced, though, that the judges seem to know which video is going to take the comedy prize since they, 9/10 times, put the ringer at the end of the playlist to finish the screening off on a high note. If my entry is placed anywhere in the middle, it feels like a bad omen. Maybe it's just me?

And am I the only editor to come out of a contest thinking about the winners in terms of "why couldn't I have thought of that?" Especially with comedy, the winners always have the most simple ideas (clever product placement, vast knowledge of internet memes, etc). The silent movie concept was the furthest from my mind in terms of theme, but I knew it would win the category before I ever saw it.

I'm disappointed with not even placing with either entry but the winners were epic.

Just wait until next year. I have been working on a new drama video idea. I have the song and concept plotted out. As soon as my computer is up to editing videos again, I'll soon have the scenes needed to pull it together. If I've done it right, this should incite a few sniffles from the viewers. :twisted:

Anyway, congrats to all y'all...

What he said.

Actually, lemme put a bit more of my own words into this. Seeing the contest was great, it was a lot better than I'd anticipated - I don't know what I'd anticipated exactly, but this was better than I thought it'd be. I was thrilled to see that the AMV contest was packed at each screening, and I enjoyed the cheesiness that was the Pirates, Ninjas and Duels video immensely. Though I was bummed that I didn't win anything or get runner-up. I don't know how to say this in a way that doesn't sound like I'm masking my disappointment, but that's all I got.

I too am interested in the vote tallies and what not - I'm also curious as to how many votes you guys actually received. I know I didn't start voting until the third convention that I got a video into - hopefully I'm just worse than most people. But with that many people at the screenings, it'd be cool to see how many people cared enough to vote.

That would be interesting. However, this was the first time that I got to experience my videos with such a large crowd, so that was a really cool feeling in its own right. They were also pretty supportive of both, and I could hear some near me singing along which was even cooler. 8-)

This was one of the best contest I've seen in awhile.

All of the AMVs were very good.

Gratz to the winners and thanks to the coordinators for putting on such a great show!

hey i received my prizes today, thnx very much :D ...unfortunately tho my drama plaque arrived separated from it's base. my guess is this was a manufacturing error. they remained wrapped in their plastic bags, bubble wrap, brown wrapping paper, AND packing peanuts so i don't think it was a shipping error :lol:

it looks easily fixable with the proper "glue" so no worries :wink:

Any chance that Katsucon will be added to the list of contests so we can add that to our video profiles?

You can always do it manually. It doesn't make any difference whether or not the entry came from the site's drop menu...
