I don't know Ari. I think the fact that you have practically legitimized the Beishonen-Ai video as a genre of its own is a feat of its own.
Heh, you'd think one of those 'one-of-a-kind' romance vids would have been considered 'most original'. But I made too many of them. My goal - to have the status of shonen ai creator. I think I'm about there - just wait till you see my new vid. ^.~
...but I have had the privalege to see you grow as a creator from the first time I joined the org, and you have really done well for yourself. You deserve to be in these ranks as much as anyone else does, and don't belittle our judgement by saying you don't.
You know me - a person is his own worst critic, and I've never done well in popularity contests. But I'd agree - it was very nice to see new creators improve over the last year. I *really* wish Paulo hadn't been DQ'd - I would have voted for him in a heartbeat - new member or not. Just thinking of those first rm vids I downloaded off his site and one of his latest - Premiere effect-laden yet strong drama vid - that's a huge leap of improvement. And I *do* think I've improved a great deal, don't get me wrong. I just haven't peaked. Until I do, I'm still improving. Because once you peak, you're striving to outdo yourself - and there's no fun in that unless you're a masochist. ^_^
I knew I didn't have a chance at any catagory, and was flattered that you listed me on your list of most helpful
Now who's belittling himself? ;p I'm sure I could find a *lot* of new editors who'd attest to how helpful you have been. And nice about it, too. ^_^
...but every prediction I made of your chances has come out true to the letter. You deserved to have the title of "One of the most improved creators", "One of the most helpful members", and "One of the best rookies of the Year."
You're biased, and I'm flattered.
But don't get me excited about this - I don't deal well with disappointment. I like it better underground. 8)
All of you who are nominated should be proud of yourselves, every last one of you. My hats are off to everyone here. Thank you for creating such good videos, and being such outstanding members.
