Okay so I was wondering.
Sometimes (specifically AWA Expo), live-action music videos get entered into assumed AMV contests. They seem kinda out of place at an anime convention but whatever, they're accepted and such.
For the most part, I've seen nothing wrong with the live-action videos, and they're usually incredibly good because, I guess, only really good editors have the gusto to submit a non-anime music video to an anime convention. Or something.
But, do some people think this is unfair? Do you guys, as normal con-goers, think it's dumb/waste of time/should be disqualified/etc.?
And also, what of music videos that weren't even fan-made, but completely done originally? Now I could see why it wouldn't matter much if it were anime-themed or involved cosplaying, but what if it doesn't?
Pssst. It's not really trademarked.
