(The Mewtwo Award) This video best demonstrates all characteristics that go into making an excellent anime music video. The editor has gone out of his or her way to create a video that both captures and moves the audience, giving them a deeper appreciation for anime, AMVs, and the entire creative process.
PencilHead was too artistic to me, it almost didn't feel like an AMV.
x2 on both accounts. Transforming the source footage into something that's so radically alien from its origins just makes it hard for me to appreciate it as an ANIME music video, however great its technical and creative merit. Best of the Year has to be the total package, and for me, All That You Can't Leave Behind ties it up with a very nice bow.
