Sorry for the delay, I was getting final confirmation on the sources. So then. Without further adue...

AMV CHEF 2013

That's right badasses, the fourth AX AMV Chef is happening, and it will be a battle to end all battles!

The Challenger:
(To be announced)

The Theme:
"END IT ALL"


The Sources:
Magical Lyrical Nanoha
Chrono Crusade
Madoka Magica
Gundam Seed
Evangelion 3.33
(And the SECRET source!)


---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 EQUIPMENT
Editors will be provided the usage of a preconfigured workstation to edit on. Each editor's workstation is identical, and is fully equipped with the full Adobe CS5 Production Suite on high end hardware.

---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.

for a game, i suggest bringing up an audience member that's never edited before and have them sit in the 3rd editing chair while the judges stand behind him/her jabbering out instructions all at the same time. :awesome:

Any picks on a challenger yet? I'm really digging the sources this year.

BTW, I wanted to pitch this on everyone in this thread (Aslo posted it in the contest thread) for one of the Blocks in the AMV Room we will be doing.

Last year I did the Top 20 AMVs of ALL time Countdown MTV style, this year we are doing the Top 20 Trailers of all Time Countdown NTV style. Basically it's more of an entertaining block rather than having to be the decisive list.

To that end, I already have in the past polled about 12 editors for their lists, but would like to add anyone else’s list to the mix.

Essentially, this is a list of Trailers of all time (not just this year or last), so if you’ve wanted a lot of know of many, then feel free to PM me your top ten list. If I don't get any new lists, I'll just go from what I got, but I would not mind adding what people here have too... Basically I would need these lists within 10 days (by the 19th)

It's going to be in Room 511 in the LACC. That's in West Hall and to the right, roughly two rooms down from where we had our one-day AMV room last year.

There's no Creator Spotlight block on Friday. So day 2 of the creator spotlight is on day 3 of the convention.

There is no Creator Spotlight on Saturday, so that should say Friday... ... ... :uhoh:
