I haven't sat down and watched through all the entries yet, but from what I've seen and the few I have seen through there are a number of interesting parodies or remakes (in some regard) of original either Music Videos, AMVs, or other fan videos.

Video 6, seriously? I didn't think people liked my gif videos enough to parody them...
Video 11, look like the editor took a queue from the original music video to that song when doing the text effects
Video 15, are we sure Shin isn't trolling us all with a pony version of his own video with this one?
Video 28, looks like a direct pony parody of the original Brody Quest video, and from what I can tell a much more faithful version of it then others I've seen on youtube thus far
Video 48, an interesting attempt to make a full video out of a youtube fad

I may have more to add to this list after I watch through the rest of the videos and not just the one's who's songs caught my eye.

Bad text is bad...parodies make sense to try and copy everything if the goal is humor, but if it's not trying to be humorous it's a BAD idea to copy tacky effects as it distracts from the mood of the video.

And you wont know till results and the rest of the entry data is put out. Who knows? Maybe it is. Maybe it isn't. Though if it is I can see the subtitle now, "Dance 8.0 - Now with Bad Music!"

I wouldn't exactly call this bad or even tacky effects. Not sure I'd classify the text as an effect even really... but that's more of a debate of what is an effect. Meh, my tastes in videos isn't exactly the most popular some times so I may be in an uphill battle rooting for this video for some award. What, I have no clue. Can't quite figure out where this video would fit TBH. Longest video maybe? I think from what I remember it takes the cake in that category.

Alright people! It's time once again for my review of all the AMVs in this year's pro contest. This year I was very disappointed, not one entry was good except for #58 but then that was my entry so it's clearly better than anything else in here already. Below you will find what I thought of your videos watch and enjoy!

So after really watching all these.....

Really people? The year of the troll.


1.) Overall I see the concept. but bad lip syncing and poorly lowed footage really took away from the final product. Seems like a beta that needs polishing
2.) The ending text was good. I get the concept but... really, the dub opening. :facepalm:
3.) Can't tell half the time if its an attempt to lip sync or random flaps
4.) I really liked this one! The only modification I would like to see is to keep the bg textures static through edited motions. General motions were really obvious.
5.) Footage issues. Lots of high quality masters out there, an inexcusable mistake.
6.) :uhoh: Your studio is going to ban you soon
7.) I really loved this one, but it's exeptionally hard to categorize. Also not terribly blind (less the file name has been fixed)
8.) The Lipton Award, that's all I am saying about that! :up:
9.) It appeals to my adhd, but I didn't get much of a connection to the song or any story. Also the first Redline video that didn't make me want to get off my ass and watch the show. It looked good and all of the editing was solid, but lacking x-factor.
10.) :beer:
11.) :shock:
12.) Needs more cowbell
13.) It was fun to watch, and trolltastic. I wanted some audio editing a bit more complexity.
14.) 15 minutes of the film simply condensed. Very much carried by the "awe" factor and story from the film. Nothing new brought to the table. It was enjoyable, but not what I would consider contendable.
15.) Déjà vu Also, F*CKING AMAZING!!!! Best parody video of all time.
16.) A good video from a basic edit, but the desaturation was really bad. Some scenes took on too much red hue and others washed green a lot. Looked like the driving effect was an after thought. Honestly, I would have liked the standard version on its own much more.
17.) chaosprojects_default_retort.exe
18.) Overused audio is overused. The video and editing were good, I did like the additions.
19.) The footage way over saturated, bad scripting? The blurring was just too much at times and transitions were far to static.
20.) The masks looked really bad. I mean 2003 snhknives bad. A lot of work went into this and I really hate to say it, but there needs to be a lot of cleaning done here.
21.) The Sponsored by Piggly Wiggly award. :up:
22.) no
23.) 1/2 cool trailer, 1/2 failure to edit at all.
24.) Saw this at BUY SOME APPLES, it's neither blind nor particularly great. And that footage :uhoh:
25.) You know who you are and you know my opinions.
26.) I like :up:
27.) h8
28.) Best Character Profile
29.) @3min 10sec in In finally got where this was going.
30.) Toradora! + shaky footage + emo music = win
4 years ago
31.) Direct parody but the lip sync was meh and really not enough action. :down:
32.) It pains me to no end that so much effort went into this, because: DDR arrows? Find Edges? 80's color sat? Really? No plot, no major content? A lot of technical skill but adhd footage all the way through.
33.) AMVCK4: When chroma key attacks
34.) Best Romance
35.) This video made me M@D
36.) Blur-swipe is the new piano keys. I'm just sayin'
37.) This video was technically well done. I think tone for tone it was a good match but the video as whole failed to capture my interest. Everyone else in the room loved it, but to me it just it just lacked some x-factor I can't explain.
38.) Scenes ran too long. Good story and flow though.
39.) Got my derp laugh on. Winner of the Guano Award
40.) More of a hell segment. Funny, but it got old after a few seconds.
41.) d.) Put it in
42.) Scene selection could have been better and the characters were listed in the wrong order. If you know the original youtube video for this and the one previous, good parodies but both suffer from footage that's too static. Though this one did give me the lulz. Best Troll?
43.) I thought MJ retired
44.) Best use of Chloroform
45.) a very long intro to an AMV that never began
46.) Okay SO much better than the version they had at D*C but the logo suffered in so many ways and made me crazy. Again Lee, you can use the handles on the pen tool to arc lines.
47.) I liked this one a lot! Definitely a candidate for best l/a
48.) 2 videos not always better and one. I get the joke, but didn't laugh
49.) :aimkissyface:
50.) Cool intro, lost it through the best part of the song, cool end.
51.) What do I do with my flag?
52.) Airbud? Troll fail. And where have I seen that art before? <_<
53.) Conceptually great but the video suffered from piss-poor audio editing and lack of defined plot. Could have been awesome, I wanted so badly to love this :cry:
54.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFsDKt-mu0U
55.) F*CKING PHENOMENAL!!!! Best in show without question or doubt.
56.) This song is so over used we all groaned. But the editing and plot centricity really blew me away! Fantastic job!!
57.) Best Feel Good Video.
58.) :bear:
59.) 2nd only to #55. Great concept, great content, far superior to any of the above in every way
