Well thanks, but its just kind of funny when you see the vote differences, in some categories videos lost by like 5 votes, yet in mine its more like 400 lol. i didn't expect to win, and yeah i guess your right, crowd response really is the most important part

Yeah, like my video being 4 votes behind the place above me - if only I could have gotten at least a few of my friends to come with me this year (they all either had to work, or didn't have jobs and couldn't afford to come - what a catch 22!)

I enjoyed the contest though, and I'm more than pleased with my results in it. I was a little surprised that the psycho-care bears (yes, yes, I know they were racoons) scored so I above my video in a serious/dramatic category, but I'm not complaining ^_^ AS has done quite a few awesome videos to get the rep he has.

Jeez, did any of you guys out there had your heart pounding when your vid was shown? It was my first CON and I had no idea what to expect. It was all good though.

Mine sure was! I don't think I've ever had such an adrenaline rush/was so nervous when my video started. It was like watching it again for the first time, but having vauge memories of putting the scenes together. ^_^

This was the second con I attended - and it was MUCH better than the first - at AFO2 they had problems with the projectors and I could barely see my video on the screen :?

Three cheers to Matt: for showing our AMVs on a screen as tall as my house, and speekers as tall as my office walls!

your sure as hell not the only one...it was my 4th con, but its the first time ive had a AMV in one, and its my first AMV at that. I was SOO nervous. And if anyone was at the first showing, you should have heard my video get booed when "Dragonball Z" came up..i nearly shot myself right there. But instead of hurting my video, i think it helped a bit, cuz when it started no one was expecting what came after and it got a lot of opening laughs

Nah...nothing to be nervous about, it was just the 5 of us in your room. :-D
