First off, I just want to say I really enjoyed participating in the amatuer contest, and apologize to anyone whose hearing may have been damaged by my video! Sorry, I thought I had fixed my sound problems before I sent it in, but I guess not (my video was the Utena one).

But I have to say I was disappointed with the showcase--mainly because for some reason, my video was not shown. It was supposedly accepted and it appears in the master list, but I watched the entire showcase, and it was not there.

"Big Damn Cowboys" takes runner-up out of 19 entries in the Anime-inspired Fanworks Contest? Not bad, not bad...

Wow! Thanks all for the quick (and mostly positive) feedback. As Rubyeye stated earlier, I will be making a much more detailed post later on this week or early next about some of the problems we experienced and the solutions we are going to implement. In addition, I will also be outlining some of the changes coming for the next year.

I'll also be contacting each of the winners who were not at the convention so I can mail off your trophies and certificates where applicable.

Lol! The showing of the contests were covered under an ASCAP/BMI performance license which legally covered the showing on the hotel premises. Surprisingly, that was a pretty easy thing to set up. :)

Yeah, that won't be in the rules for next year since we are moving to direct computer playback. We will insert the blank space in with the splash screen. So it will be goodbye to that rule requirement.

Yep, that was my fault. I had two runs of the scoring sheet for that contest and when we were running down for the contest we grabbed the one with the typo. BTW grats on the win, we loved the video.

Truthfully, so was I. It just didn't get the same amount of troubleshooting attention as the contest did since I forced our tech guy Ron to re-encode the contests several times. I apologize that you're vid wasn't shown and as soon as I hear back from him, I'll let you know what he says about it.

Yes, and it was awesome. You guys have no idea what watching that during judging did for Tonbo...good times. :)

Thanks all or the great vids and for a very good year. I am very much looking forward to continuing our efforts next year.

Well you know if yu really want you guys can keep the trophy. And i think it was more of a tie anyway.
When the difference in 1st and 2nd is the roll of a huge fuzzy d20. I think we are all winners. And you should have called Evens :P

Anyway great job on the Polka we all enjoyed it.

And Good Luck to all other winners in the Contest.

P.S. No matter what it looked like it wasnt us that tripped the cable. That guy got outta there like a cheetah on crack.
