Iron Editor - Otakon 2017

Who?
Last year's contest was fierce, but Studio Hawk swoops in this year to attempt what Miracle Falcon couldn't: defeat BecauseImBored1. Will he be the Man with the Golden Gun, or will he totally miss his shot?

What is this I don't even
Each contestant will have two hours to create an AMV that doesn't suck and adheres to Otakon's theme of "Spies and Secret Agents". Only one editor will emerge victorious and be forced to return next year. The loser is off the hook.

How?
Each contestant will be given 5 anime sources, and all five must be used. Each contestant is allowed to cut their audio ahead of time and bring it with them to the event. They may bring multiple tracks if they so desire, as no audio will be provided during the event. In addition, each editor must use at least 1 second of the secret ingredient.

Sources:
Baccano!
Golgo 13
009-1
Eden of the East
Joker Game
Plus a secret ingredient too awesome to list!

When and Where:
Sometime Saturday in AMV Theater.

Why:
Because we don't know when to quit.

---------------------------
OK kids, you know the drill. It's time to feed the beast that is BecauseImBored1. If you think you're a bad enough dude or dudette to compete this year in Iron Editor, send me a PM. Competitor gets a free pass into Otakon 2017. Winner gets to come back in 2018!

The theme this year is Spies and Secret Agents. Not gonna lie, there's a dearth of anime out there fitting this theme, so this year's sources are going to be a toughy. We're still locking down the episode list, but here are the MOST LIKELY candidates for the final five sources:
Baccano, 009-1, Joker Game, Eden of the East (TV), Golgo 13 (TV).

Would Psycho Pass fit into that theme ? It's definitely a difficult theme to choose sources for and I'm not entire sure what route you're trying to go with it.

I haven't seen this show either, but it feels like it might be in that realm:

C$ has nothing to do with secret agents, it's about gambling and butt kicking. Psycho Pass is about detectives and is definitely on the short list if we ever break out THAT theme.

Lupin 2015 or The Women called Fujiko Mine would work too. They are thieves not spies but they have the right tone.

Noir, Read Or Die, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Canaan, Darker than Black, and possibly RIN if you cut out the sex scenes

If KP wins again I'll be sorely tempted to try out next year, just to see if an eagle can do what a Falcon and a Hawk couldn't.

Don't forget that she also took down a cat 2 years ago. I was gonna say that it's time for the dog to step back into the ring, but then I realized that I changed my avatar. Now im just a turtle...

Are you ready, Otakon? Do you like spies, explosions, and secret sauce video sources? Are you pumped for a full length shot for shot remake of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy in anime? I hope not the last one because that would be terrible(?)...but get hyped for Iron Editor, happening TONIGHT!
