Manifest AMV Competition Results

Post by Infinity Squared » Mon Sep 26, 2005 6:52 am

Well, thank you all for so many wonderful entries. This has to be the biggest and best AMV competition that Manifest has seen to date and I am proud to announce the winners.

Fan Favourite Runner-up
"Azumanga DIE-OH"
by RolltheStampede

Fan Favourite
"She-Man and the Masters of the Azuverse"
by Janzki

Best Technical AMV
"A View To A Kill"

Best Creative AMV

Best of Show
"She-Man and the Masters of the Azuverse"

Also for the first time ever, Manifest played host to the highly successful version of an Iron Chef AMV competition. Typically these sort of competitions are done in the con itself and run for about 2 hours. Our version comprised of overnight editing, with the ingredients being revealed on Saturday and the videos shown and judged on Sunday, and we don't just have 2 contestants.

Finally, we have the Manifest Choice Award, which was the award decided by the Manifest Committee as being a video deserving praise amidst all the stiff competition.

Special Mention goes to the following videos for coming very close at becoming the Manifest Choice AMV:

"If Only"
by Yues Woman

"Sasuke - Ashita"
by Lockstock

Once again, thank you for making the Manifest 2005 Anime Music Video scene such a huge success and I congratulate everyone who won and participated. Hope to see you all again next year.

Oh and yeah... I'll just have to say this... Reflections of Style 2 was damn awesome... everybody loved it here... ;)

Congrats to all of the winners! When I found out from Vlad over AWA that he had also sent his Pro video in to Manifest, I figured that you guys would have one heck of a contest, and it looks like you did. I'm glad you're getting lots of good videos! Hopefully I'll be able to be there and see for myself next year. :D

Glad to hear it! It got a great reaction at AWA as well. Heh, was cool to have a "simultaneous" premiere.

Thanks AtomX for letting us have our hands on it. Yeah it was pretty cool having a simultaneous premiere. It was actually like a real worldwide cinema general release thing :lol:

I forgot to mention this, but the winners should be expecting in the mail soon their prizes. This involves the lovely medals and anime goodies that we promised.

Congrats again to the winners.

Ah... Nesse... were you the one pulling the strings for that or was it Lock? :lol:

Hehe... it might be awesome if Manifest were to happen at the same weekend as AWA again next year and we snag another beauty like this...

Question now is, when will it be released on the org? Many people are hounding me for a copy and I can't exactly give them that huge as file I got.

Hopefully it won't be the same weekend next year, though- I do want to try and make it out to Manifest, but choosing between going on vacation in Australia and going to AWA is a decision I don't want to have to make!

Oh... yeah, good point :P

Anyway, your videos were awesome too Ashyukun... personally I was very impressed by your Gainax tribute as were the crowd with much cheering going around after it played.

Hope you do come down next year... and please, if you are, please give me a heads up, because we may need you for something AMV related ;)

Lockstock was the one who approached me about it, and I was happy to oblige.

As far the the org release, it should hopefully happen either today or just sometime this week.
