Besides I also thought game footage was not allowed, I mean .hack, those are anime game/films, but this was Zelda and stuff. Was my scene selection btw that bad : /? I followed the lyrics, stayed at sync but lost. Sorry for the rant, but im not very pleased considering the time and effort I put into it.
Anyway, congratz to those who made it to round 2.

I suppose this is a situation where the concept wins over everything else. Putting the allowance of video game footage aside, I found the video hilarious and immensly enjoyable. Troll videos are actually also videos and when the troll works out and it actually IS funny, it's a HUGE plus for the vid. I didn't know how other judges would see it so I placed it in the winning 4 to appreciate that awesome trolling.
When we look at sync - in your video it's alright and that's all. There are cuts in places where they should be but isn't it the same with Fall_Child's vid? It has quite a lot of internal sync actually and it's obvious he couldn't rape us with cuts with this choice of footage. Lyric sync? It was noticable in a few moments in your vid but since the song's lyrics are 'general' and basically any upbeat romantic scenes would fit them, the literal sync Fall_Child used was more entertaining for kinda obvious reasons.
Your video has some pretty decent editing, source choice and scene selection. But it's exactly what everyone would expect with this type of song. It has a few minuses like pretty noticable song cut, poor lip sync and a few other tiny flaws. Fall_Child's vid was kind of a do-or-die. His vid was the most original in the pack, made me laugh and I don't think I'm gonna forget that vid for quite long while your vid was just another typical romantic edit. Don't get me wrong, it was decent and it was something expected for this kind of song. But because of that, the other vid surprised me in a positive way and that's why I decided to put it above yours.

Btw I was hesitating a damn lot while judging this group and I don't think I'd ever be sure whether my placing was right.
And it's supposed to be fun after all! If you sincererly believe your vid was better than the ones who won - alright! Everyone has their taste and judging will never be totally objective. Maybe you're unlucky cause all 5 judges accidentally did like something more in another vid than yours, and what was in yours wasn't particularly interesting while for others it would be. Come on, I don't think any of judges puts placings randomly or 'ahh, I'm sad today so I'm gonna place the worst vid as 1st today cause I'm sad'. This is my first judging ever, I place vids the way I think they should be placed. If you disagree about my choice, then sorry, luck isn't on your side.
