This video did something different from most trailers: It made a trailer for the anime in question, and not for the trailer music it's being based on. And it's a damn good trailer for a damn good story.

I know nothing about this show, but after watching this, I feel like I just witnessed a greek tragedy. Damn.

This is neither about the song in question, or the anime in question, but two people in love who have reached a turning point in a relationship. It just so happens that this turning point is about buttsechks

This one works much better than it has any business doing. Just...watch.

WOO SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION. Also, this had a story or something.
In all seriousness, telling a story was the main goal of this one. Portraying BeBop in a different light is the entire purpose of this one, and if I had to pick a single category to enter, this would have been it. So I humbly present, for your consideration.
And lastly...

This one brought me to freakin' tears at Otakon. I mean...sweet jesus...most of the nominees told a story, this one weaved an entire region built around several hundred stories, without a single line of dialogue and mostly matte paintings with self-made animation. This is a video for editors. Just...watch.

May sound a tad biased because my little sister made this video. Still, it is VERY well done. She threw it together in a few months for a literature class she was taking with special permission from her teacher. The idea was to tell the story of Romeo and Juliet in a modern way, like "West Side STory" did. This video got her an A++ and a gift certificate for the extra hard work she did but it hasn't got very much attention on the site.

That said, I thought I would just point it out along with one little fact: she is only 15 years old guys. This is RAW TALENT! So, yeah. Call me biased if you will, but I encourage you to watch the video before naming me such.

Enjoy!
There is nothing like a moonless night to watch a few AMVs.

If any of the nominees are named Hugo, then they won't have a problem winning this award.

It made it into character profile. Which I will vote for it in, because it deserves to win something.

yeah, that's true. I really wanted Reggie to win "Best Storytelling", but the five finalist are also just as deserving. I take back what I said because its kinda insulting to the people that did make the finals.

If you are saying that you are voting for Reggie in character profile because it didn't make it in storytelling, than I'm not sure that I agree with your logic. Your vote for a specific category shouldn't be influenced by any other category......but whatever

Back on the topic of this thread, I vote Cross+Point for "best storytelling". |:>

It really is a shame. I think what happened is a lot of people saw that it was 10 minutes long and decided not to watch it. Phooey on them because it was 10 minutes of some the best damn storytelling this year had.
