Oh, thanks.
I had difficulties browsing through the Akross site before finding the good videos. Language barriers, oh well :roll:

I think I posted a link to that page yesterday. Anyways, I'll try to solve some language barriers. :) Here's video name and the nomination it got:
1) IMAGE - 79D37'fallout'
1st video of competition
Best technical presentation

highly recommended to watch for everyone

2) TRAUER - Pokich
2nd video of competition
Best drama
Best story

beautiful video. Highly recommended. It's important to mention that the name of the song (in german) is "Without you" and the name of the video is "Sadness, sorrow"

3) WHISPER OF THE BEAST - Scorpions Ultd
3rd video of competition
Best action

masterpiece. If you read author's forum posts (at AKROSS) you will sit with your eyes wide open and your tongue falling out. lol Not only it took him 7 months of constant planning, designing and work, there is such a deep deep story in it. Every single move in the video has meaning. I mean every single one. Video also is very strongly linked to lyrics (which are in german by the way, he had to translate it). He should post in in his account as it's essential to understanding the whole complexity of the world created. Anyways, I was reading his posts whole night yesterday and only then realized what a piece of art his video is. It is definately the most completed developed complex work I've ever seen.

4) LES TRISTESSES MERTRIERES - Tayo
AKROSS award
Unbelievable, but another finalist made a video on the same story arc - Naruto-Haku-Sasuke. But it's absolutely different video. It gives you different view on a story and is more sentimental. Very very remarkable!! It's pick is at 2:37. Wow :shock:

5) ANOTHER HALF - NetTropp
Best concept
Best design of special effects

breathtaking effects. I think this video will open a new stage at special effect design and editing. Different kind of FX than in Euphoria, more custom designed effects. I mean it will blow you mind away.

6) FALLEN WAR - ukms[z]
Best presentation
huge spoilers for Windaria. Original video footage quality is pretty low so it make turn some people off

7) WONDERFUL CLIP - bkt
Audience choice
don't download it unless you understand Russian and/or saw old Russian classic movies. The video is a joke and parody and you may not understand a thing. Though it's an eyecandy.

8) ЛЮБОВЬ ПОД САКУРОЙ! - Хитоми и её девочки
Best comedy
don't download unless you saw O-zone - Dragostea din tei MTV video because you will loose most of the jokes. The video is navative and very funny, but visuals and especially sync need a lot more work in my opinion.

The rest are just finalists.
I'd highly recommend to download БЕСКОНЕЧНАЯ ДОРОГА - Рэтти .
it's closely connected to lyrics so if you're interested I could give you a brief translation.


too bad not all of them have accounts on a-m-v.org

...and still noone in the Russian AMV community gets to me like SergeeWITCH. :wink:

THRUE POPSA FOREVER!

Anyone looking for some pointers at AKROSS translation-wise can also approach me.

Meanwhile, I realized that unless someone uber-impresses me at the last moment, I don't know if I'll want to make any nominations in this category.

Pokich is registered on this page ? I searched for him (and the amv) but he was nowhere to be found.

I agree with you there. Last year it was pretty obvious who was going to win but this year it's a bit of a toss up and it's hard to know how to vote.

Somehow it seems inapropriate (as well as futile) to nominate an excelent but lesser known video. Sometimes I think of this category as "most popular" or "Largest impact on AMV comunity" and nominate some of the best videos that fall into those categories.

That or just go down the list nominating all the truely excelent videos and worry about the voting when I get there. :D

I'm sorry. :) I'm happy to hear you liked it! But I'm just not all that into the contests. I send videos to contests at conventions so they'll get audiences and people will share them and enjoy them. But here, well, they're already being seen, shared, and enjoyed, so I don't feel the need to compete here. Plus, I'm just lazy and haven't got around to checking my list and making sure it's complete. I think one or two might be missing form my list. Not sure.

Anyway, thanks!

OH!!! You have to know GERMAN to enjoy Scorpians vid! I was wondering why it was so popular!

Don't get me wrong, but I just reviewed Images and called it a DBZ/ Linkin Park type vid... I just don't like action vids ESPECIALLY when they have prerequisits to knowing the story! I mean, isn't that asking too much of the audience?? I don't just like fun vids but some dramatic vids take nothing but basic undertones so anybody can understand them, otherwise half (AT LEAST) of your audience will probly miss the point. I've, however, yet to find an action (non-fun) vid I liked :cry: *mean shrug not cry but...*
