I will include links to these videos at a later time. Probably by tomorrow, as it takes some time to hunt down these videos. The turnout was lower than I feel was appropriate. There was an unforeseen interruption on Friday where someone in the convention center decided to blast some classic rock for about 10 minutes on the Public Announcement system during the AMV Contest. On Saturday, 40 minutes before the AMV Contest, I was moved to a different room while a panelist took over Main Events; many people didn't know where the AMV Contest was moved to and vice versa. The General Screening was played during the opening hour on Sunday.
This is the finest playlist of AMVs that Zenkaikon has seen, without question. I am honored to have been able to present these music videos. I feel as though it is a failure on my part that these circumstances were not addressed / prepared for ahead of time. I sincerely apologize to all of you, particularly SleepyOwl, who had 3/4 of his AMV interrupted by the audio on Friday. I discounted all votes in the Dramatic / Serious genre from Friday, and only went with Saturday's votes for Dramatic / Serious for this reason.
I will do everything in my ability to prevent these, or similar situations from happening next year. If you would like to know how your video rated during the AMV Contest, please send me an e-mail. Winning editors will have their prizes sent in the mail, using the contact information provided when the AMVs were submitted.Zenkaikon V (2011) AMV Contest PlaylistDramatic / Serious
