I'm not angry. I would have been angry if I did pass considering how little time I actually spent on the video. I'm somewhat sad that my video was ranked as high as it was considering this. The song/idea really kicked my ass, it is way outside what I would normally listen to or edit with. It's nice to step out of that boundary but man was it hard to actually get up the nerve to actually sit down at my PC and edit the video until I realized I had 6 hours til the deadline and didn't want to drop at the last min.
So yes, thank you judges for validating that 5 hours of work is just not enough in this competition, and for the comments on the video. I'll add it to the backlog of videos that I need to get off my arse and actually finish and release. Good luck to those of you that are moving on. I can now go back to focusing on watching more AMVs and coming out with more twiamvs episodes and stop debunking my attempts to start controversy between us old school editors and the new style!
