That's it for A-Kon's 20th Anniversary AMV Contests. I think the changes we made in mixing the videos up and the short intermissions worked well for the presentation. There were some playback issues because of the different audio/video formats we had to contend with and depending on which player was used. But we found ways to work around them. Any comments or suggestions for next year, let me know and I will share them with the staff.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the editors who entered, and to those of you who came to see the shows!

'til next year.

~ Dann

For the most part, all videos played. We just had a few that didn't immediately display video as it transitioned from the title card to the AMV. We had to start the video player in normal size and then double-click to full screen mode for proper playback. But everyone's video played completely.

During the Awards Ceremony we had some audio issues with the channel loosing volume (right after that "Dragonforce" video) which I was afraid had blown one of the speakers or output cables. But we managed to get through it.

We're hoping next year to finally upgrade to an editing suite, if we can get a sponsor for the events.

Grats to everyone! It was a good show all round!

As for the H-Fest winners, I think one of Roll's videos won it, with a video I entered coming in second (I think? not sure myself, really lol)....and the pre-show was something special, to be sure...

Congrats jubjub on the win!! always like seeing your stuff!
