JACO AMV Contest at MegaCon Winners.

Postby Snackpants » Sun Mar 02, 2003 10:30 pm

I would like to thank all those that participated in this year's AMV contest, and we played to a packed house. Again since we only had 90 minutes, we only showed 24 of the 39 entries during the contest, but this year we made sure that all the entries were played during 'bumper' space during the convention.

The Winners are as follows:

Honorable Mentions:

"A Winner is YOU!" Award from Sushi Boy Jared
Mark Viola - "Ocean's 11" Tailer to Cowboy Bebop

"Red Shiny Candy-Like" Award from The Finger
Brian Smith - "Happy Happy Joy Joy" to Evangelion

"More Snack for the Buck!" Award from Joey Snackpants, Esq.
Brian Palacios - "Mr. Deadman" to Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker

Winners:

Best Comedy
George Mora - "Captain Hampton and the Midget Pirates" to One Piece

Best Action
Matt Page - "Metal Gear Solid 2 Theme" to Angelic Layer

Best Romance
Brett Buchan - "Thousand Miles" to Whispers of the Heart

Best of Show
Tom Guttadauro - "Our House" to Our Neighbors the Yamadas.

Basically this year, less was more. Old School edits beat out crazy effects. Just because you can do it, doesnt mean you always should.

The category was Drama/Romance.

I would like to thank Snackpants and company for a great contest. First off let me say I almost fainted when the doors to the room not only opened on time, but 15 minutes early! And then the contest started *gasp* exactly on time!
There were no problems with audio or video and everything ran very smoothly (at least it looked that way from the crowd).

Great job guys!

So basically if you used effects beyond fades your vid was dissqualified in the eyes of the judges. Peachy.


Congrats to all the winners, especialy Tom. HypeO has been rooting for you to win a con since we have known of you Image

Ah... no... but when all the videos were shown, the ones that were at the top used less 'effects'. *shrug* Though I loved the 'note bar' effect on your 'Appetite' video, quite impressive.

There were two videos showed during the AMV Contest that I don't really remember well or could find any info on. One was "Trial of Hellsing," or something like that, and I think it was Checkm8 Studios. The other I know absolutely nothing about. The only thing I could pick up was "Land of the Rising Sun" from the lyrics. Does anyone have more info on these videos? Like the J. Snackpants, Esq.? :wink:

If it was "land of the rising slum" that you heard, it was probably this one. I don't blame you for not remembering anything about it; I was going for a low-key kind of feel, and quite probably did that too well. Long - slow - dark - quiet -- snore.

*Looks at Wonka a bit strangely*

Since you obviously weren't there to know, the other three catergories were awarded to videos with a good amount of effects and "effect cuts" like lip syncing and action syncing.

Not that I am inside Mr. Snackpants head, but what I think he is saying is that the "Our House" video which is basic in construction but excellent on concept and execusion beat out the videos that contained all the fancy edits and effects. So, Tom the Fish made this one...great another video I get to watch religiously along side of Top of the Rain. ^_^ The messenger video was good too.


I'd like to congratulate the other winners, to bad everyone disappeared afterward and I could only shake Rozards hand for making a Ghost in the Shell video I like.

Matt, I can't believe I couldn't find you afterward since I know what you look like. Glad to see you take home best action. I think this is your first award and it's well deserved

George Mora, I would have loved to shake your hand. My friends and I love your Captain Hampton video, and when we came home we dled your great Janken Pyon video. Great stuff.

Mark you did a great job too, a little rough on the quality but obviously good enough to win an award ^_^

Brian and Brian are cheeky bastards, and contest whores. I love you guys.


Again to those running the contest, for the second year in a row you have done a great job, void of horrid technical flaws and delayed start times. For the most part, just a solid block of videos that every one enjoyed for almost 2 hours. Kudos.

My apologies for the assumtion. I have just heard alot of people denouncing videos simply due to the fact that they had effects present and wern't "oldschool" enough, and just missinturpreted (sp?) your post. Sorry for coming off surly, that wasnt my intent :D

Again, congrats to everyone ^_^
