Well, I recieved 14 videos that were valid entries (So I'm downing it to just one award with a runner up), and it certainly was tough to chose a winner. I was astounded at how many vids were extremely strong in some catagories and weak in others (i.e. Great concept, but synch that leaves a bit to be desires, or great synch, but weak/unoriginal concept). All in all, though, it was a pleasure to watch and judge all of these vids.
That being said, the winner is... *drumroll*
BishounenStalker's Soldier of Fortune!
This vid went above and beyond the other entries in terms of concept and execution with great synch and powerful scene selection, earning an 89/100 for it's final score. Congrats!
We have a tie for the Runner Up, two vids that each earned an 87/100 for their final score:
and lilgumba's submission
(which has yet to be titled or linked, but should be watched by all when it is) both really caught my eye in terms of nearly ideal character profiles, good job to you both. Jethropr's vid also got the highest synch score of any of the vids, nice work.
That being said, thanks a bunch to all those who entered. I have scores for all your vids and if you would like to see them, please PM/IM me anytime.
(P.S. BishounenStalker please IM me to discuss your prize.)
