Sadly none of my videos made the cut. One of my videos (my comedy, the Initial D video) was disqualified for content, apparently. Of course they never told me this until the very end, and I don't think it deserves disqualification, but blah.

I'm disappointed that my other two videos didn't make it in, but I can always enter them to AWA, and I still get to see a whole bunch of great videos. There's always next year.

I'm very anxious to see what videos managed to beat out mine. I'm kinda with Tony here - there could be some serious weird stuff going on. Brad's not on the list, Eric Kobet's not on the list (although I don't know if Eric entered anything, I know Brad did)... very surprising. Oh well. Congrats to all those that made the finals.

(maybe a few will get this? maybe not.)

As far as the contest goes, well have to see for ourselves how good the prejudging was. It's just a shock to see people who's videos have made AX's screen 4 years running not even make the cut. That's either a testiment to good unbiased judging, or a major fuckup.

I'm happy to see a lot of new names grace the board, but I'm also going to miss competing against some of my long time AMV friends.

I didn't enter... hehe maybe a lot of the big names decided not to send anything to AX. It wasn't my choice since I was still in my forced retirement, but then again I have never picked any bones about the AX contest. I have always felt the AX staff did improper things to influence the outcome... was it 1999 or 2000 where they positioned the videos in with the one they wanted to win last in each category? No contest is perfect and AX is far from it and has been for a couple years now. Yes AX is the biggest con and you have a huge audience to show your video to, but the Honeymoon is over and hopefully people will stop holding the AX amv contest in such high regard. (Note these are just my opinions)

Y'know, thinking about it, I'm glad that my video didn't make it into finals. It has shonen-ai overtones and thus all my audience for it will be at the Yaoi panel (and if I didn't have a video entered and I was 18, I'd be there too...)

And I think its good that there's a mix of new people in with the classic creators. It's interesting to see new styles.

Can't wait to watch the contest! It'll be great!

(lol, where'd that come from??)

:shock:

I would be a dumb looter if I took the time to fight someone when I
could be jacking a new TV that I don't have to hit with a broomstick
everytime it decides to stop displaying the color blue. :wink:
I have sinned. I made a video I wanted to make that was music + anime + sync + action + effects/transitions. Oh lordy. :roll:

Whee! I actually made it in!

Hi, I'm new around here. My name is Steven Rutter. This was my very first AMV which I spent way too much time on, but I guess it paid off. Hope you all enjoy it. I'll be the guy dressed as Nabeshin.

Later.

Well I'd like to share it now, but I'm currently inbetween DSL services right now. My new one sent me a modem, which of course didn't work, and now I have to wait for the new one, which probably won't arrive till after AX. I'll have it available to download then.

I like AMVs too. ^_^
