Our con chair insisted this year on handling the award shipments himself so nothing should be lost in the mail. ;) Congrats to all the finalists and, especially, the winners! You made it an exciting contest this year!

To MysteriousRyder: Be prepared, becase your video is going to be just like the controversy with Nightowl Studios' "Love Is Flowers" from about 10 years ago.

I liked your video, but to me it's not a comedy. (And just because a video has yaoi content doesn't automatically mean that it's a comedy. When will people ever realize that?) If your video truly is a drama video, then it should ideally compete in the category that you intended it to compete in. Of course we can't control whether the coordinator will allow it to compete in the intended category, or if others in pre-judging believe that it should be in a different category.

I can't believe you got edged out by that Caanan video that's been making the rounds. I liked how you pulled off a fine action video using Miyazaki footage. Nicely done.

My new video didn't do so well at all, finishing in a very poor 5th of 6. I did tweak the video since then and sent it to other contests, but I have a feeling it's another longshot chance on making the cut. I think it's an even more-so longshot chance now, but stranger things have happened to my videos, especially last year. We'll see.

Congratulations to the other winners! I wish I could see all the videos. Thanks for posting the numbers, they're fun to look at ^_^. Now we know that one sweet misguided person voted for Knights in Tights for Best of Show :dino: .

I was told by my staffers there were a few mumbles in the crowd (basically about the violence) but it wasn't like anyone left the room over it. I know Brakus was quite pleased with the result as well and, apparently, vehemently supported your entry's inclusion. Anyway, it was very well-done. You earned it.

Just a note or two about the Annoying category.

There were cries of anguish, despair, and "Why do you hate us?" during most of these entries (especially "Red Ring..."). I never really noticed before until I was in a wide-open room with a loud sound system but "Cat Butt" not only set up the audience with the repetition and horrible sound in the first half but hit them in the second with a rather annoying song which frenzied some of the viewers. Well-played by the lot of you!

You can also expect this category to return next year as well. We'll have five or six finalists again and default any leftovers to Comedy (which is how it would have worked for a couple of this year's entries if we didn't have the Annoying category).

Finally...MY NAME IS LAAAARRYYYYY! :lol:

BTW...would you all like to be linked to all the Annoying finalists, including their bumpers?

Here's a link to the Annoying playlist (excluding "Anibad III: Aniworse" because YouTube blocked the audio).
Let me know if you can access it.
Use the "Play All" button at the top of the list.

Thank you for posting these. Our video seems pretty tame in that company. I actually feel physically ill from watching those straight through, your poor audience.
