First off, thanks for the quick results. I've been wanting to know since Tim is a good friend of mine.

Wow! I'm quite a bit surprised with this. Given, I bet our room wasn't as big, but Iron Chef was during the Masquerade (which easily diminished the audience) and we still packed the 2nd biggest room (standing room only and security 'guarding' it and not letting people in). SHOCKING since well...a nobody like me was doing the ACen one and at Fanime they had two very good and well-known editors.
Yay for ACen
Doki Doki. Even though Ermacs video IMHO was slightly better, it featured very little in the way of guns (other than the tire shooting out, and the guns in the beginning), along with the fact that the chase scene seemed to just be two long chases sequences spliced together and timed differently than in the movie (i think, correct me if i'm wrong). Doki Doki's video was pretty average.
However, considering they made the videos in two hours, they both did a great job.
Awesome! I hate to say it, but I was rooting for him since he is a friend of mine.
Tim: Welcome to the L337 (j/k) Iron Chef world...Iron Chef ACen welcomes you Iron Chef Fanime
Justin: I bet you made a great video and I hope you both had fun regardless.
As for the videos, as you said so yourself, Justin's video didn't use guns as much and from my understanding of the judging, the use of the theme and secret ingredient are VERY important. Given the overall video can't suck, but these two things are very important and maybe that is why Justin lost. I can't wait to see either of them and how badly they spank mine (like Hsien's did).
Yeah, you gotta keep in mind that they had two hours and just how little you can do in that time. I bet both are great though since both are very capable editors.
Strange that two challengers (myself and Tim) have won this year. Out of the three contests, that just leaves AWA...if the trend continues looks like we'll be welcoming a new AWA Iron Chef (Ian)
Thanks again for a quick post on this!
