The AWA 2015 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

Post by SailorDeath » Tue Sep 01, 2015 8:28 am

Alright Bizzitches, it's that time of year again. Lo and behold, despite my promises of not entering and procrastination I actually managed to finish something. With the torrent releases just around the corner, I felt it time we got this shit storm started.

For any newcomers, the rules are simple:

1. Do not out someone/yourself if you know who made the video (Some of us want to stay in the dark on who made what)
2. Write a review for each video.
3. It can be serious or satire, it doesn't matter.
4. Don't take the reviews seriously, the person who reviewed the video is probably trolling (like me!)


Also, with the rules about videos having to premiere first before another con or being released online, if people do find any that have been premiered already it would be best not to use this thread to report/shame them. That kind of outing is not what this thread is about. If you find one, just e-mail Jingoro with the video info and where you found it online. It'll get handled by them. The point of these reviews is to share our thoughts, let others see what people said about their video. (good or bad, and believe me I've wanted to murder some reviewers :P ) Try and be creative with your reviews to win the coveted "self-proclaimed winner of the thread" award. But most of all, have fun with your review.
Gimme a minute, I'll make a cool one....

I do not expect downloads to be live tonight. Get some rest editors, and check back here in the morning. I DO expect them to be available via Dropbox and Google Drive, I do NOT expect to be issuing a torrent this year. You can expect Dropbox to be ready first.

Good point on how to report illegal entries, but there's really only one rule about Pro discussion. Long as you don't spoil who made what, feel free to discuss the contest however you like!

Re: AWA 2015 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 2 & SEP 6

Post by jingoro » Wed Sep 02, 2015 7:24 pm

I do suppose a note is in order about calling fouls.

Fouls are usually called during the category phase when someone finds a video on YouTube or reports it having screened at another convention. This starts an inquiry on our end... for online fouls, it's as simple as checking a link and saying 'yup, that's the video'. For convention fouls, I usually have to write the organizer of that con and verify the claim.

Fouls MUST be sent DIRECTLY to me via email (videoart@awa-con.com). Please do not call fouls here. We'll do the inquiry, and if necessary I'll pull the video from distribution and contact the creator, who is always offered the chance to move the video to The Music Video Exposition. I'll then make the necessary announcement here.

Thank you for your discretion in this matter. Fouls are a necessary, but disappointing part of things for all involved, both the editor who may have made a simple mistake, and everyone participating, who may see a favorite candidate struck from the roll.
