Comedy and parody had a lot of overflow, ans Parody scored higher. When overflow top 6 from Parody was removed from comedy, it was below the top 5 categories

Also, when all the cuts were made, no video in the finals had under a 4 average score out of 5

Umm....what? Perhaps you could rephrase that, because it did not make any sense...

i think he's saying that the top 6 videos in parody were also considered comedy (thus listed in the category) so after removing those from the comedy category, comedy wasn't in the top 5 cats to be shown at the finals.

Could be wrong though.

Actually thats what I am saying, and based on average scores Comedy was not in the top 5 of the possible categories.
I think I might have still ended up cutting strong videos in 1 category for weaker ones in another to keep categories balanced and within a specified run time, but this year that wasnt as harsh like previous years where sometimes I would cut say a high scoring action or drama for a low (average of 2 or lower) comedy and stuff like that.

It just seemed a lot more balanced of a contest with the finalists this year with maybe 1 or 2 videos that may seem out of place due to scores between categories they were submitted to.

I also spent about 5 hours just to make the cuts, in previous years once scores were entered it was just slice away and I am done in 10 minutes, this year I actually started over twice.

Your guys contest. Thought that does make me kind of sad that comedy got so few vids.

Thanks for the info.
