I'm hedging all my bets on CDVV, also please book all bets through me so I can run off with your money

The thing is, dude. That's the point of a randomized contest. You basically just contradicted yourself. The point of the songs being randomized is that it challenges you to edit outside your comfort zone. If you edit to the same stuff all the time, then you really aren't getting any better. You woulld be surprised how fast people will get burnt out of your videos if you used the same genre of song with the same type of editing YOU are used to.

Point is that recieving random songs challenges you as an editor. I had never heard of Starry Eyes until I got the song. It's not really my type of music. It was rather slow. And I would not have edited to it otherwise. And I'm glad I did try my hardest on it. Something really good came out of it and in the long run, I think I'm better for it. Plus I learned something new.

Let's not forget the main point of this contest.

FUN!!

Then it'll just be like every other contest.

If you don't like how it's run, join one of the other 99 contests that run exactly how you want it to.

You had the rules available beforehand. If you didn't like them, you should not have taken a spot from someone else who wanted it.

RTFM
And only after this, join.

Seriously, who are u kidding? People coordinate contests the way they want, you join if you like how it's announced, you don't if you don't like.

Hey hey hey lets not be so harsh, sirmichaelvalentine has a long and outstanding history of making quality AMVs. One subpar video (rushed and uninspired, no less) would tarnish their record and they simply would prefer to withdraw than risk such a blemish on their career.

Also, PERIODS, please. Anyway, I hope you get the point... There were so many editors who wanted to participate and now... there's just a blank spot.

Hey can you bend the rules for me because I am a longtime upstanding member of the community (and also a personal friend of the staff), also I promise not to troll the competition with some My Little Pony video edited to the completely wrong song (because anyone who knows me knows that is something I would do in this exact situation (except I won't do it this time (except I probably will because I like to troll like that!))).

Also seriously, if you can't find the drive to push your own creative boundaries within a set of rules to which you had previously agreed, you probably need to get the fuck out of this hobby.

Hey! Caught one!

No no no, if you've seen me around at all, it's from my previous work in collaborative efforts like: Brad's IC (spectacular round 2 flop) Project Org Editor last year (made a shitty 5 second video, then complained I didn't get a free pass via the >50% drop rate) or my shining achievement the Improv Project (widely acclaimed worst video in the project AND worst song choice to give to someone else) but hey, I was just trying to point out that there's really no point in not TRYING. My video for THIS thing is gonna suck too. I have all the same complaints sirmichaelvalentine does. I'm still working on it though. I didn't quit with more than 2 days left.

i apologize for this but i tryed to do something with that song i really don't work with or even listen to techno ish music im very good at what i do go see my account to see what i mean. i can make a very good pop video metal video slow video hell i can even work with rap and country.but that type of music is just to hard for me to work with when i make a amv i like to use music that tells a story somewhat. look plain and simple i apologize for taking up a space if i was gonna drop out i thought i could follow the rules but i guess i cant work with someone else picking my song for me again i apologize.if anyone's in project org editor contest you'll see what i got for that i hope you like it.
