Hi boys!! I have a question, I want to participate in the Sakura-Con with an AMV, but is there any limitation on how much real image the video should have? :D

As per Rule #4 of the Official Contest Rules:

4. The majority of your entry’s video content must consist of anime-styled or manga-styled content. Consideration will be given to
other sources that also fit the spirit of this event.


Majority = 51% or higher. The remaining 49% can be cat memes or stock footage or whatever. The jury's out on if that'd make for a great vid, but what the hey.

I wouldn't say that, it has been done before where a video was half animation & half live action and turned out great.

Do you consider Genshin Impact to be anime-styled?

I'll need to deliberate with the rest of the coordinator team, but my thoughts on it are a strong "yes" due to past precedents.
