Postby Vlad G Pohnert » Mon Aug 01, 2005 1:34 am


Here is the list of Finalists for Animethon's AMV contest on Saturday. Also remember that all entered videos into the contest will be played on Sunday. As the audience gets to vote for their favorite, I've only included the creator studios/names for the videos that made each category to keep what is shown a suprise. It's a fantastic lineup this year! Thanks for everyone who entered.

must be a VERY tough competition, as my Beg4Life video didn't even make it.

Congratulations to all!

Oh well I tried. Congrats to all that made the finals. Hopefully this isn't a sign of what is to come in the future. Good Luck to everyone that made it.

We had a total of 64 entires and yes competition was very tough...

The judges had a hard time this year and there were so many good videos from Both North America, Europe and all over indeed. In fact some in each of the categories were so close and only a point or two apart.. Even a few tie breakers had to be made.

I really wish we could show more in the finals, but as with any event at a convention, we are limited on time in the main events room and having the audiance sit for more than 2 hours gets to be too much...

But everything will be shown on Sunday in a 4.5 hour block so an audiance will get to see every entry, as was last year, I expect that room to be packed to full capacity...

WOW! There are a lot of great editors in the finals. I am honored that you included me among so many skillful people.

When I saw how many really talented people did not make the cut, I knew that this was a tough competition. If your video didn't make it, don't be discouraged. If you loved making your video, that is the most important thing. If even one other person loves it, it doesn't matter if the whole world hates it. Your video is a success. Winning a contest or getting great ops is nothing compared to the reward of the joy of the work and the appreciation of just one person who "gets it."

Keep up the great work, everyone, and best of luck to all my fellow editors in the finals.

Oh, and many thanks to Vlad for a really professional looking job. I am sure that the event will be wonderful. If I could be there, we could sit around and sip adult beverages and trade arthritis medication.

Wow, I'm surprised my videos made it - I really didn't think they were 'contest' material ^^; [/con-newb]

Either way, congrats to everyone :D
