well guess i better get around to editing some AMV's haven't really don't anything since just before new years.... if i don't make anything else i might submit it - i consider it a decent mash up but probably not up to standards to become a finalist XD

Over looking the rules one more time ... I don't see the "must be at least 70% anime" being its not there... can one assume could possible submit MLP this year? - just thought i'd ask.... as i just finished a Trailer lately that wouldn't mind submitting if allowed.

It's Rule 5: Videos must use at least 60% of anime content. This includes the use of anime computer-generated animation in TV, OVAs, movies and anime related video games.

Bascially, it's a "Anime Music Video" contest and as such we wan tto be sure the majority of the video is music and not straignt dialogue

Six weeks to go to the deadline, so lots of time

well the last "anime" thing i edited was more in the wsy of an "extended" trailer due to not actually being a trailer parody.... not exactly sure what to call it. maybe a mash-up of sorts there's plenty of music to coincide with the dialogue. it was quite fun to put together - but just not sure if it might be something that you might be looking for.

Any chance you could preview it to see if it's acceptable - just so that it just doesn't get DQ'd immediately after submitting?

Alrighty - i'm sure i'll see you there at some point... i'm running 2 panels at otafest (intro to amv' editing and intro to pmv editing) .. but i'm not really expecting a huge audience ... with a dedicated AMV room and all :wink: .. being i've never really seen any panels centering around amv's as much besides a dedicated room or the contests... but it will be a new experience for me as well as i've never run a panel before either - so guess all i can do is hope for the best and hopefully get around to editing something new for animethon after otafest :D
