AMV Contest Discussion
---------------------------

Ugh.....

Before the contest started, we were all subjected to this Sailor Moon transformation video to burn time for the contest and it was played REALLY FUCKING LOUD especially with me and the rest of the La Familia sitting up near the front.

The actual contest was pretty bad because all of the videos were put on 1 tape recorded in EP which really screwed over many people especially the Milo brothers. Alot of the videos were from horrible divx sources and some even SHOWED THE DAMN DIVX logo. Some even looked like 160 x 120 rm files blown up to view on a projector screen (I liked that fruits basket video but it looked like a muddy pile of crap visually). My video looked like it went through a blender 35 times and the sound started off low and went normal around the middle. The only video that actually survived the entire recording process was Ikasu's Sin City.

The contest was a pretty big disappointment and their explanation for only accepting VHS is TOTAL BS since they played MJ's moneyshot from his cd.

----------------
AMV Panel
----------------

Yes, there was an amv panel and Hitori and I went to help out with it but Hitori went to the awards ceremony but I decided to stay. When I sat on the panel, I barely got to say anything because the 2 people running it didn't even give me a chance to speak. I didn't want to be rude and interrupt them since they sorta knew what there were talking about. I only got to say around 5 phrases (One being a correction for "Doki Doki Studios" and I said "Productions", saved you there Tim :)

With the last 5 minutes, they showed Dragon Bebop Z on the TV but didn't even bother to turn the lights off which made it hard to see. Plus they didn't even give a chance to show Hitori's videos.

--------------

I had an absolute blast at Akon except for the actual amv related stuff. I really hope they get their act together because so many of us were screwed over.

I'll be posting a list of the contest videos later. If you didn't make it, you were shown at the showcase.

Good times, good times... 8) The only semi bad thing about that was I could tell the guy that made the "other vid" was pretty upset about not winning. I shook his hand and he was kind of surly with me. :| Twas still my proudest AMV moment so far. :D

That guy's video wasn't even that great. I almost thought he had a chance because he used familiar anime characters in hentai which would please the crowd but Moneyshot had the WAY better sync and matching. I can't believe that guy just blew you off man... talk about a poor sport. :x

Man, I miss all you guys already! Good times! :cry:

I almost forgot, Best Artistic was actually a tie between Carlos's vid and a Trigun/Superman-Five For Fighting video. Not sure who made it though.
