Dragon Ball Amv French Contest

Postby Risbo_94 » Sat Sep 15, 2007 6:47 pm

I have the pleasure to present you the "Dragon Ball Amv French Contest" so that it could be known by an international community?

An AMV contest I , ultra mega DBZ fan, organized myself with the help of Rody in the web site "amvdefans", the biggest amv community in France.

Now, I would like to explain to you our motivations and our goal in that « serious » contest.

Firstly, some have remarked that it does not existe so much vid of « high quality » with this legendary anime. Our goal was to pay homage to its creator : Akira Toriyama-san.

Secondly, we all fed up with all those vids « empty » and without interest from DailyMotion or other streaming vids websites and made by non experienced poeple. Consecuently, we ,the Amvdefans community, wanted to show what could be possible with a little seriousness and work with an over edited japanese animation.

The last reason but not the least, we wnated to have the pleasure to go back through time and plunge into these excellent souvenirs we have of this era. The vids creator novices had also here the occasion to show a real potential and the first fruits of a futur high quality careers.

There also a lot of others reason but it would be ... some long ... I think ... (it's already long enough ... don't you think ? THX ! )

This contest took place from the 9 of june to the 28 of July 2007.

Concerning the rules : at the beguining, we wanted to impose 3 diferent themes as one chooses, so that everyone got the same moment of start. Example : make a trailer with a movie original soundtrack, or the obligation to avoid war scenes (in order to make an sentimental vid ) ...but at the last moment, we decided that it would be better to let everyone decide how to edit with their own imagination. So we announced that it would not have imposed themes ^^.

The 5 judges were : Nevermind (a young hopeful creator ), Rody (who organized all this stuff with me ), Shishi (the administrator of amvdefans), The 35 YOK (an outstanding senior of our community ) and the last but not the least ... myself.

For the ranking, we used the same systeme than with the Iron Chef : mark from 1 to 5 concerning diferent things like the synchronization, the originality, the graphic quality, the editing (transitions, digital effects, lyp synch, ...). We also let the public establish their own ranking because the ranking of the judges is obligatorily sujective in a certain way.

The participants : Akany, Arkan, Callmeskippy, Frayge, Hélios, Kazekage, La_mort157, Mtarzaim, Neb-b, R_1 and Super sasuke.
Most of them have a profil on animemusicvideo.org ^^.
