Congratulations on making it this far! YOU'RE ALMOST THERE!
We've so far seen:
1) A Promotion
2) After Story
And now I want to see how well you re-create the best of the best.
Round Framework wrote:For this fifth round of competition, you will be re-creating a "award-winning" AMV, while putting your own spin on it. When I say "award winning", I mean an AMV that has been featured in the JCA/VCA awards, or has been in the top 10 of the top 10% videos. While not ALL the greatest videos of all time may be featured here, it's an excellent place to gather inspiration from.
Example Video: This video displays a great parody/re-imagining of its original video [A VCA winner], while showing the author's own personal style inside of it.
Please note that the AMV you create does not necessarily have to be a parody, although you are more than free to do so.
Theme Execution Criteria
Each round, 30 points of your possible scores are awarded to the execution of the theme. What does this mean for this round?
Editors will be awarded points based on how well they re-created the "award winning" AMV, and put their own creative spin on it, and how well THEY shine through. Attack of the Otaku was great, but if we just see another thing that looks like Chiikaboom herself re-made, that's really missing the point. We want to see YOU create this AMV the way YOU would have made it.
For this round, we will eliminate 3 editors.
Should 3 or more editors drop in this round, we will adjust the number of eliminations.
Should less than 3 editors drop, we will only eliminate the number of competitors that make up the difference. [For example, if 1 editor dropped, we will only eliminate 2 editors]
1) ANIME RESTRICTION. You are not permitted to use the same anime as the original video.
2) AUDIO RESTRICTION. You are required to use the same audio as the original video. Remixing/alterations/song covers are permitted.
3) I will personally send you FTP information as soon as it is updated.
4) Deadline is July 25th at 11:59 PM Central Time. Judging will begin on July 26th and run through July 27th. Results will be posted when all judging is complete, or on July 28th, whichever comes first.
