Anime Boston 2005 Winners

Postby dokool » Sun May 01, 2005 12:37 am

Great contest this year, that's all I have to say about it for now. Drama was actually probably the strongest category in an unusual change of pace. Romance was a bit weak (it had the fewest at 5 videos), hopefully next year it expands. Action and Comedy were both decent, my vid (coming soon!) got a great reaction so I have no complaints.

Here goes...

Audience Vote
Best Drama and Best of Show - Atonement by Kiarrens

Best Action - Heading For A New Century by Marisa Panaccio

Best Romance - Alberto Gonzalez's KareKano vid (He's listing all his vids on the 'Org within the next couple months, no link available yet)

Best Comedy - Channel Surfin' (no link)


Judged Awards

Best Editing - My Evil Alien by Scintilla

Best Concept - Gunsmoke Outlaws by Tsunami Jones

Judge's Choice - Staring Down The Barrel by ANTDrakko



Edit - OtakuForLife defeated Guyv in the AMV Iron Editor. The Secret Ingredient was Yakitate!! Japan volume 1.

I thought the best drama/show video was pretty well done. Captured the essence of FMA very well. I would have liked to see it have been a little more tightly synced, but overall a good video.

Man, reading over the profiles of the winning videos, some people update their video profiles REALLY fast. Like minutes after the results are posted :shock:

In any case, congratulations to the winners! I'll try and check them out soon (assuming I don't have 10 stars pending -_-).

OMG! Some of you guys talking in here I might have actually saw! I had a one day pass...(grumbles) and it was a mess. I didn't even get 2 see the AMV contest, but I was there at 8:00 AM!!!

:evil: :evil: :evil:


BTW! Just in case any peeps from Anime Boston are wondering what I looked like, I was not in a cosplayer uniform, and people thought I was a girl because of my long red hair...(I'm a guy and My name is Dan). I was hanging out with two other people... a girl with a hat(great detail, huh?) and a kid with glasses and a black shirt(I'm on a roll tonight!). So, there... Good Job to whoever won. :P

I assure you that Best Action goes by so fast you probably won't catch any of the real spoilers. Can't say that for Atonement, though.

The awards are purdy. Too bad my award's base broke and they have to ship me a new one. XD

Thanks again Adam!

Atonement was excellent. I also loved Channel Surfin'. The parodies on it were great. I loved how the crowd gave a sigh when that video ended. They clearly wanted more.

It was great being able to see these AMVs on the big screen with a crowd. It was a very nice setup.

Congrats to all the winners!

That's weird, with only 5 videos, they ALL had to have been REALLY good. Not to say that mine wasn't good at all, but I submitted "Out Where Dreams Come True" for Anime Boston with the specific instructions to enter it in the ROMANCE category if it exists. Then I got the note from Anime Boston that the video didn't make the final cut.

Now I'm even more disappointed that ABoston didn't pay attention to the instructions I put with that particular video, cause with so few entries in Romance, it would have definitely made the cut. I'll have to spell out my instructions further for next year's contest. *sigh*
