No love for asuka.

Post by AbsoluteDestiny » Thu Jan 01, 2004 4:16 pm

I'm not generally one for pimping videos, but I think this video got kinda lost in the post-AWA deluge a little so I figured I'd post about it.

Virtua Anime

OK, so it's a difficult video to categorise (if anything it's probably a parody) but I'd like to see it get a nomination for something... It would make the FREAKIN MONTHS I spent making it seem worthwhile :)

I for one think it's a pretty neat video and hasn't been appreciated as much as, say IWIWAL which is funny but really wasn't that hard to make :P (IWIWAL has little hope anyway thanks to dokidoki as usual :P)

So yeah, that's my pimpage. Digital Asuka needs some Virtua lovin :)

If there is a Best lip sync catagory then IWIWAL should win.

Virtua Anime would probally be under Best Parody or Best Technical though there would be a lot of competition in both.

Best Technical? Best 3d added stuff? :wink:
I have sinned. I made a video I wanted to make that was music + anime + sync + action + effects/transitions. Oh lordy. :roll:

Well, it's true. As entertainment it doesn't match up to many of my other videos.

It all comes down to what you judge as being a good video - entertainment or skill.

That's something I can't answer except to say that it's generally a bit of both.

Well, personally I was figuring this was a complete shoe-in for Best Original Concept. That's where the video really shines. I mean yeah the technical aspect is neat, but what left me smiling and clapping at the end was the whole concept of the video. It was "absolute"ly top-notch!! Gets my nom + vote easily.

Agreed, I will be a little bit disappointed if you don't at least get a nomination for Technical, Dance or Original Concept. At the same time, I'm one fan and can only make a small difference with my votes and nominations and you sir can guarantee on them ;).

And if I didn't say it at AWA during the show, good work.
