you and your rom/sen :P
"Bending Inferno" had that honor in 2012... or would've if some lighting BS hadn't forced me to delay the start by playing a couple extra vids.

Yep, I became a zombie and got ran over by a crappy purple scion, but I ate a few brains and got better.
:rofl: (hehehe!)

It's nice to see a lot more of the pre-show got shown this year.

Re: Anime Expo 2014 AMV Competition - Hints about 2015

Post by XStylus » Mon Sep 08, 2014 3:27 am

Ch-ch-ch-chaaanges!

I think now would be a good time to give people a heads up on some stuff coming 'round the bend for 2015. Not much is changing, but the things that are changing are significant enough that you guys should have an early notice.

DISCLAIMER: Changes are subject to change. Nothing's final until the official rules are released which will probably be sometime in January.

1) Because we got so many submissions, we're twisting the thumbscrews on the freshness rule a bit. Presently, the freshness cut-off will be October 1, 2014, and might be tightened up further in future years, as I'm noticing that many of the entries we received last year were on average 6-months old or newer.

2) We're twisting some thumbtacks on vids that are mostly long reels of micro-AMVs (AKA: AMV-Hell style submissions). Love em' or hate em', but nevertheless AMV-Hell style submissions shall no longer be accepted. This was decided after a lot of discussion with coordinators of other events, so don't be surprised if this becomes a thing at other conventions too.

3) If one of those micro-AMVs is a commercial, here's a twisty thumbs-up because the Bonus Genre will be back for 2015, so send it there please!

4) The submission deadline, barring any unforeseen strangeness, will likely be May 2nd, 2015.

Everything else in 2014's rules will mostly carry over to 2015, with minor clarifications being the only other changes. If there's anything that anyone feels needs attention, I'm always open to hearing your feedback.
