Postby Skrasis » Sat Apr 10, 2004 6:25 pm

Since I didn't get to boston this year seeing as how im from So Cal I was wondering if anyone had any information on the amv contest that happend? Who were the finalists, how many vids were shown? how many people watched it? etc etc And were the winners announced yet or not till the end of the convention?


Thanks,

Skrasis

32 videos were shown. The first showing was last night, and a second showing took place this morning. Winners will be announced tonight, in about 30 minutes from the time of this post.

There was a noticeable problem with the videos' playback - the contest was shown from a single DVD, and the DVD slowly desynchronized more and more as the contest went on, so much so that not a single cue in the last video appeared to have been synchronized at all.

According to the video info, kayko4578 didn't actually do that video; s/he's just hosting it by proxy for a friend.

Congrats to all the winners, and can't wait for next year when Anime Boston won't have to worry about capping attendance. :)

I thought Songbird21 would snag some of the awards with her good stuff. Ah well.

TaranT had a Porco Rosso video, and Tom the Fish had two videos (No Need To Feel Down and another FLCL vid I can't remember)

Hmm, Tom winning Best Comedy and Best in Show. Sounds familiar...

In any case, congrats to ALL the finalists AND all the winners.

Also, there were TWO, count'm, TWO Iron Chef events between myself and OtakuForLife:

<b>Round One (late Friday night)</b>
Song: The Pillows - Hybrid Rainbow
<b>DOKool</b>: Teknolize Vol 1
<b>OFL</b>: Kino's Journey Vol 1

<b>Winner</b>: OFL by a margin of .4 (Note: These were both purchased the same day in the dealer's room. OFL watched his disc once beforehand, I didn't watch mine at all)


<b>Round Two (Sunday afternoon)</b>
Song: Bjork - Hunter
<b>DOKool</b>: Azumanga Daioh Episode 1
<b>OFL</b>: Abenobashi Episode 11 (first episode on Disc 4)

<b>Winner<b/>: DOKool by a margin of 1.3 (Note: Neither of us had seen the shows at all)


For something that was thrown together in a matter of hours, both events were damned fun, and next year we hope to do it right! Check out the AMV Announcements section for our vids soon...

Main Events was *FULL* on both Friday Night and Saturday Morning.

As far as the problem with the DVD synching, that was a problem with the DVD itself, in my opinion. At the Behind the AMVs Panel, Patrick said that it was most likely a problem with the mixing board. Which would make sense, except that the delay was VERY much present in the videos off the AB2004 disc that were shown.

would it be possible for the people that were in the finalists to get copies of the AB2004 amv contest??? ; ) That would be great! considering some of the finalists couldn't be there due to location. Myself included.

Patrick isn't doing VHS copies this year. Wait till amv-contest-lists.org updates, they'll have 'Org links to all the vids in the finals.

Turboneko put up links to the winners (see above), and that's all the info I have right now. There's an AB2004 page up now (use the link in my sig)...I'll update it if or when more information gets posted.

Two minor corrections, the margin after the first match was double
checked and was 1.68. Two, the judges were tapped in the head during
the second match and wrote W00T and L33T for 0 and 3. I Hardly count
on that type of voting. But, Whatever hope to take my title back at AB2005
John and Bob want to use the second match to fight each other.

I have a copy of the ballot sitting on my desk, when I'm a bit more awake I'll scan it and email it to you...
