After this tournament is said and done, I'll let each judge choose their favorite video and the author of that video will win a $5 (USD) Amazon Giftcard. The judge's picks can come from any round, any group and be from any author. So even if you don't make it past Round 1, if you manage to catch a judge's eye you may walk away with at least a little something. :3

If I fall into a pile of cash anytime soon, I'll try to up that amount >>

I'll throw in a $50 gift card (retailer of your choice) for the winner If that's ok with Yue? :3. How's that for incentive? Hopefully this'll cut down on the number of drops and who knows - it might even encourage some of you to bring your A' game each and every round. :)

I'm having a lot of fun so think of it as spreading goodwill toward whoever's lucky enough to win :up:.


While I can't make it an official prize since it's independently sponsored and we have no way to hold you to it, I can't stop you from offering it. |:>

Awesome man, just awesome. :3

Great, independently sponsored it is :). I already set the money aside even though I probably didn't need to (it never hurts to be safe).
I work over the summers with my old man and I get paid pretty well so it wouldn't be a problem regardless.

**There may also be a special surprise in store for anyone who can "impress" me** :P

Ahhhhh, with all these incentives now I wish I would have performed better from the beginning. :(

Darn you brain for your lack of knowledge. >.<

Well its time to study, study, study.
Since knowledge is power! :P

Seriously. The fact that most of us didn't drop is a miracle in itself man. I mean, we all got stuck we Caramell Dansen and we all pulled out at least 2 minutes. Good job Group D! :D

The judges hit on just about every point of my video that I'm unhappy with, so it's expected that I didn't move on. Grats to the winners.

Now that the results are in I'll embellish a little more on what happened with my video. At first I had this really awesome idea for a fun innuendo video (similar to Addy's but without the *BAM*) using Sailor Moon SuperS, so I set out to encode my footage, which starting the encode Wednesday night took until early Sunday morning to finish. So I spent the few days working on planning out the video and grabbing still images and things that I would be using. Fast forward to Sunday, I start working on browsing the source and I get half way through the episodes I had and found very little usable footage for what I was wanting to do. Went to bed then. Monday I worked and when I got home I had a Migraine so I layed down to get rid of it, was only suppose to be down for a few hours, had set an alarm to make sure. Turns out alarms don't help when you're already drained for lack of sleep and a busy day at the office and not having eaten dinner yet, so I apparently shut off the alarm in my sleep and slept through till I had to getup for work Tues morning. So again, I go to work, and when I get home I start hitting the timeline hard. It was about 7pm that I realized that I was not going to be able to pull off 2 mins with my footage, so I went to plan B, grabbed Photon because it was already ripped on my PC from an IC last year, and started scrubbing. Around 8pm I realized that Photon didn't have anything I could work with either.

Well shit... on to plan C I guess. Went to my old mainstay that I keep on my PC for future use, Cyber Formula. I remembered that there is some great relationship scenes between Hayato and Asuka in the OVA Zero, so I tossed it on the timeline, said screw cleaning up the footage pre-editing, and ran with AVS scripts because converting to UTVideo was out of the question. Started work and about 2am I started the export as I finally finished at least 2 mins worth of video. I wasn't completely happy with it, but it was the best that I was going to be able to do since I had to get some sleep or else I'd be loopy for my meetings at work the next day. Did some basic cleanup of the footage to make it look somewhat passable, exported, converted, uploaded, and called it a day.

So yeah, I wasn't expecting a video that I only spent 6 hours working on out of the 1 week available to actually win, but I'm proud I was able to get that much out. Considering I haven't really edited a video in about a year I wasn't sure I still had it in me. I kind of like the current incarnation of the video so I think I'll probably spend some time to actually finish it to something that I'm happy with. And as much as I really don't like the song, I think I may just take some time and work on my original idea as well, using different episodes from SM, and actually go as far into the H arena as I really want to but wouldn't have been able to do for this competition.

Either way, congrats to the winners, good luck in the next rounds.
