Metrocon's my home. Oh man, I've been to every single one except for last year when other events I wanted to go to coincided with it. Convention-material-wise, Metrocon has always been the issh whenever I went. Too bad I've kinda lost alot of interest in that kinda stuff... I still want to go for one day for nostalgic sake.meleechampion wrote:So... all in all, a shameful end for what I once thought was the greatest of all Florida contests. Guess I'll have to search elsewhere... still haven't been to a Metrocon yet. AFO this year looks really promising. I'll try not to let JACON's demise get to me. I am sad that it'll never get a chance to redeem itself for this year.

JACON usually has the best AMV audience, out of anywhere I've ever been.

That videogame supermove montage one was a waste of everyone's time and got more applause than my video... just because the audience was glad it was finally over with. I'd feel cheated if I were you. I can't believe they greenlighted showing that crap. It wasn't even an AMV. I had to follow it... maybe not directly... and the audience was close to DEAD.

Shoulda won something, but same creator won Best of Show for... a pointless interlaced Death Note vid made to an unimpressive popular song? Oh well. So what if the award was for the wrong video... still the same guy.

I'm sure it didn't help that the amv coordinator was also the con chair, and had a million other things to do that were more important than planning/promoting/attending his own contest.

That's sounds really out of the way, spending $45 just to get an AMV into a contest(and not be there), lol. I wonder if they even do check, 'cause I've heard some places have that rule, but they really don't check for pre-registers.Stryyder wrote:Damn, sad I missed Stan, that would have been great.
As to the harsh speak against Brad, hate to be a rules nazi but it simply states you have to have a "membership for Jacon" it does not state you must be in attendance to win. Pretty common for out of state editors to submit to conventions they can't go to. And I'm sure the reason he wasn't able to go is because he lives here in California. But I may be biased because I've met him, he's a good guy.
