The AC Cubed 2007 AMV Contest Playlist and Winners

Postby EVAR » Tue Nov 06, 2007 2:47 pm

As promised, here's the info about all the AMVs that played during the contest in order of appearance. When they're available, links to the video's animemusicvideos.org page will be given, which almost always allow you to download them. Just click on the video's title. I also wish to apologize to the producers and audience members for the few videos which didn't play well on our system. I will point those ones out so that you can watch them the way the producers originally wanted you to. If you have a video up somewhere but I don't have a link to DL or watch it at, please E-mail it to me at ac3amv@gmail.com and I'll edit this post to add it.

OPENING PSA:
Doki Doki Productions--Plunder Propaganda
MPAA anti-piracy ad
Anime: One Piece
NON-COMPETING ENTRY
This video actually does have audio. Sorry, Tim. It was a show of its strength that the audience still loved it to death.

The full text of the Warning screen, since the video tech didn't notice that I asked for the clip to be 15 seconds long:
"WARNING:
The AC³ 2007 Anime Music Video Contest contains plot spoilers, strobing effects, violent mutation, mutant violence, Barbie-doll nudity, many different languages, trout, trains, surreal imagery, good and bad music (which is subjective, anyway), some re-encoding work (jeez, people!), and too much caffeine.
Enjoy the show."

And that was 2007. To everybody who entered and attended the showing, thank you very much. More apologies to those who got chomped on by technical gremlins; we hope to have them good and murdered in advance by next year. For those of you who couldn't get through to our FTP, we'll be using a better alternative for online file submission next year, and we won't use PDFs for submission forms anymore, either (that one wasn't my idea in the first place). We look forward to seeing you again as we try to get closer to perfekt in 2008.

This demonstrates the value of paying attention to the title-safe region during the editing process.

Oh, wow, didn't expect that! There are people who actually like it! I get the orignal-part, but best technical? Well, congrats to all winners!

/downloading the videos of all the winners and runner-ups

Ehhmm, from your comments on the AWA Master videos I thought you didn't like it... at all! :) Yeah, I've been a bit hesitant in releasing it, because I thought I would get a lot of shit over me for that video. I might release it in about two weeks, I'm in the middle of releasing another video!

Well, the judges really liked the effects you made with both the music and video suggesting doing the same thing over and over with diminishing returns.

Well, you got a bunch of Canadians who think that what you did was badass, so you should get it out there, and soon. If anyone gives you shit about this one, tell 'em to bugger off back to their safe, boring Linkin Bleach videos.

They actually submitted it as an MKV with seven different subtitle tracks, including Japanese. We had to re-encode it to run it on the system. We should have done a bit of testing earlier and reeled in the frame a bit on the projector, but we were kind of preoccupied with the con.

Watson, AC Cubed.

Well, it was the third-to-last video played at Masters. By that point, I was so bored with the contest that I wasn't even paying attention until like, the last minute of your video when I thought they were having technical problems with it ;) Now I wanna see it in its entirety and I've been waiting FOREVER for you to upload it, so get on it |:<

Totally surprised at my standing there. I doubted I could even get a runner-up in one of them categories, let alone this - but I ain't complaining! Especially not with that prize (Haruhi boxset). :D


Awesome job, for all the technical difficulties the contest went well! Congrats to everyone who took well-deserved positions there.

And yes, I agree, I want that video uploaded Douggie. :o

I can't add this contest to my vid's details for some reason (It's in the list, but there's no checkbox for it) :|

Anyways, I had great fun at the con. I'm very pleased that my video played through in full without error. And I know Fall_Child42 was very happy to deprive me of any chance at the Most Original award this time around :P

I should say, I was surprised your video didn't take a runner-up in the technical or composition categories at least. Was definitely among my favorites there. Ah well!

The judge I bribed didn't even show up for the voting session. I want my money back >:\
(Next time I'll be sure to save enough money to bribe enough judges)
