N2U 2012 AMV Contest--The Entrants and Winners

Postby EVAR » Thu Nov 22, 2012 1:34 am

Okay. Pardon the delay; I had to overcome a combination of con crud and being sore and tired from helping load out after it was over before I could get to this. So far, this is the contest with the most entries I've ever handled--39. Wow. Here's all of them (plus one bonus) in the order they were shown on Sunday. Links to videos and creators on the Org (and occasionally YouTube) are included where I can find them. If I missed yours, please let me know (and tell me where it is) and I'll fix this. But first, the disclaimers:

"Some of these AMVs contain scenes of violence and coarse language which may not be suitable for all viewers.
This is your warning, soccer moms. Don't say we didn't."

"This Contest Showing also contains: Brief strobing effects; plot spoilers; good and bad music (as always, subjective); mad retro (as in, before you were born); weapons of mass distraction; a carnivorous TV; ideas for Mother's Day; lysergic flatulence; 2D idols (down, boys!); brony baiting (whoa, horsies!); tragical girls; a tanker truckload of blood; MEN!; a video game you'll wish was real; THE UGLY!!!
Guaranteed 100% "Gangnam Style"-free!
Enjoy the show."

A 2-way tie between "Look at It, It's Ugly 2.0" (my video), and "Mother's Day Special" for MOST ORIGINAL. That's cool.

If it's not obvious (because of everything being on one line), that's two awards. Congratulations. Thanks again for entering.

I really liked the AMV entries that Naru2u 2012 has this year lots of variations and genres styles most of the AMV editors that has participated for this AMV contest has already won once in a convention.
So that is actually a good result for yourself. I really enjoyed it my personal favorite AMV was Razzle Dazzle cause I really like the timing of the AMV and a nice choice of music with lots of of Dance Animes.
Its very rare to see a The IdolM@ster footage in this AMV cause in my country the Netherlands we don't have a lot of IdolM@ster fans.

So congrate to your Grand Prize and Best Technical Award XDreww.

Hopefully to see you all next year. And keep editing and try to learn new things in the World of AMV's.

I don't know, but I haven't given them any reason to get rid of me or the contest. In fact, the head of the con told me to my face that he's happy with my work.
