ConnectiCon FMV Contest - Winners Announced!

Postby kiarrens » Sat Jun 30, 2012 11:00 pm

Congratulations to the winners!!!


If you submitted and didn't get an email from me tonight, check your spam filters, and if you still don't see one, drop me a line and I'll let you know if you made it or not.

Congrats to the finalists, we had 15 pre-screeners total this year and only skipped 15 videos out of 90. I am willing to provide scores to people if they want them, send me a PM or an email if you do.

Some of our judges were pretty harsh this year so don't be discouraged if your overall score seems low. They judged everything poorly across the board, so it just threw off the (groove) curve a bit, but that doesn't really matter when it comes to finalist placement as we simply take the top 5 videos.

Two showings this year, one on Friday night in Panel 2 (250 seats) and one on Saturday morning in Main Events (2000 seats).

Good luck, finalists. I look forward to seeing who wins, it's going to be close in many categories, I suspect!

Some select quotes from the pre-screeners you guys may find amusing, though I won't tell you which ones are for which videos:

(5 videos in, at 11am) "It's too early to drink... right?"
"I don't always bathe in demon ichor, but when I do..."
"Did they forget to edit this?"
"It's gonna suck when they go blind in four years because of those HUGE EYES"
"Oh f***. Skillet."
"This video needs 50% more James Marsters."
"I'm covered in blood, and I think most of it's mine."
"I think we should get out of here, it's feeling a little.... corpse-y."
(About a video using MacBeth as source footage) "Ooooh, it's McB!"
"Anyone who hates this song is a communist."
"Hold on, I need to drink my lonely-aid"
"Harold.... the crazy kids next door are at it again..."
"Do you even know what sex IS?"
"There is quite literally not enough scotch and therapy in the world for this"
"Hoobastank makes EVERYTHING stink."

For what it's worth, I rather like Skillet. Haters be hatin'.

But then... I also like Nickelback, so......

Probably because I don't listen to the radio so I don't have the "these songs are horribly over-played" bias.

Or I just like shitty music. Either/or.
