Anime Expo - AMV Chef 2012 - "THE MAD DASH"

Anime Expo is proud to officially present its third annual AMV Chef competition, hosted by Brad DeMoss and Nic Neidenbach!

If you've heard of "Iron Chef" then you already know the gist of what this event is about. However, instead of food contestants "cook" with a preselected cornucopia of demented anime choices as their ingredients

This year's theme is: "The Mad Dash".

Contestants are charged with the task of creating an AMV that best exemplifies their interpretation of that theme.

The selection of footage for this year is as follows:
Project A-Ko - BlueSide & GraySide
Gunsmith Cats
Macross Plus
Neo-Tokyo
RedLine
(Secret Source - To be announced here after the event)

The entirety of the above sources will be provided.

---THE RULES
1) Competitors must use at least three of the five video sources listed.
2) At least one frame from the secret source must be used. Competitors should note that they will be judged on how effectively they integrate the secret source with their video.
3) Competitors will be given two (2) hours to edit their video. In the unlikely event of a technical malfunction, the downed editor's clock halts until they are able to resume editing.
4) Competitors may edit until the last second, at which time nothing may be added, moved, or removed. The final projects shall then be output to a file for playback.
5) Editors must provide their own audio track. It is recommended that editors bring multiple songs of different genres (you never know what that secret source might be). Anything goes, but nothing obscene or excessively vulgar.

---THE JUDGEMENT
A judging panel of select veteran AMV creators and past contestants shall score the videos using the following 50-point criteria:

Use of secret ingredient: 15 points
Use of theme: 15 points
Technical merit: 10 points
Artistic merit: 10 points

---THE COMPETITORS
There will be competition!
Kisanzi is this year's challenger! At the event he will choose which of our chef judges he shall challenge.

---THE EQUIPMENT
Editors will be provided the usage of a preconfigured workstation to edit on. Each editor's workstation is identical. Equipment details will be forthcoming, but at minimum it will be an Intel i7 or better, and shall be equipped with the full Adobe CS5 Production Suite.

---THE ENTERTAINMENT
To keep the audience entertained while the entrants sweat, we'll be showing AMVs. Big surprise there. But wait, there's a twist! As part of the AMV viewing there will be games and audience participation with chances to win nifty kewl prizes an' stuff!


Any questions? Ask away! This post will be updated with further information as it comes.

The chef judges better be prepared~ Kisanzi doesn't ever go in without an insane game plan.


I'm looking forward to re-watching Macross Plus and a couple others with him while he prepares for this bad boy.


This shall be fun. |:>

Oh, it will be greatness. Just make sure to bring plenty of beer and your Batman costume.

But I digress, good times will be had.

I'm surprised I was sober for last year's AMV chef. :beer: :awesome:

This year, I'm not responsible for my actions. :ying: :twisted:
