Anime Mid Atlantic AMV Contest Winners....

Post by Gene Starwind 21122 » Sat Mar 03, 2007 2:35 pm

This years contest was great and the Audience enjoyed it alot. I think this has been one of the bigger turn outs. Nearly 800 votes were casted for this contest by the audience. We had 2/3 of the room filled Friday and a full room Saturday. Thanks to everyone who submitted. I'll be posting the rules in November for the 2008 contest. You can expect the deadline to be sometime in late April or early May. I would like to have more time with creating slides and intros then I had this year to make an even better contest presentation.

And I'll have the AMV Contest Replay on Sunday changed to a General Screening where all the videos will be shown. (Some videos from the contest may need to be cut to show the one's that didn't make the finals.) I want to have all the videos shown that were submitted. So if you are coming to convention you will be able to see your video on the big screen at least one time. I wanted to make sure you guys got that chance.

Sunday
Sunday 10AM-12PM

The awards will be handed out at closing cermonies on Sunday at 3:00pm. If you did submit be sure to be at closing cermonies. Even if you are not one of the finalist. I'll have something there for you as well.

Good luck to everybody this year. This has been one interesting contest to judge. Now that we know the judge's awards, its time to see what the audience votes for.

And we have an amv panel at 10pm Friday night.

Also an AMV Critique panel Sunday 12:30pm-2:30pm. Feel free to stop by and join in on the fun.


ALSO if you are attending the convention let me know ahead of time so that way I can get you an amv badge for the screening to get you special seating for the contest. I'm trying to organize a creator gathering at the convention too.

Is this even possible with MPEG-1?

Also, if we edit our video at 29.97 fps interlaced, does that mean we must attempt to deinterlace it when finished, or what?

Forget I mentioned the Non-Interlace video part because they must have used something different last year. I'm using Nero DVD Burner to burn the contest to DVD. It has worked well in the past with videos that were submitted in these formats:

- MPEG 1 or 2
- HuffYUV avi
- Uncompressed avi
- Divx avi
- Xvid avi

I appreciate it. It makes it less work for me and plus less blame on me because the quality of your submission is in your hands. I want this contest to go flawlessly if it can. :lol: Knowing from my past experience at panels. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong type of idea. So I got to be prepared for everything when running this contest. I have back up plans made just incase one of the DVD's decide to give out me. I'll have my computer with me just incase the DVD player goes. I want everyones video to be shown in the best quality they can be.

Also we have 2 submissions so far and both are for Action. Keep them coming.

Most cons' AMV contests do have this requirement, you know. It's pretty standard.

I'm very aware of it.
I'm also understanding of why they do it. Most don't put more than ten seconds of time into their vid for bumpers. I just happen to be a person that puts time into it.

And going through vid after vid with subpar info display does drop the contest quality feel. Making standard bumpers for the vids causes more of a cohesive feeling rather than an odd collage of videos one after the other with nothing more than a category breaker.

That doesn't mean I have to like it

Hey everybody just to let you know I am contacting different stores about sponsoring the contest. I have a few stores already interested with us and say they probably are going to donate T-Shirts, Wall Scrolls or DVD's. I'm still looking for more so I'm hoping we can have a nice amount of prizes for this year contest. I'll be posting the sponsors up here as I get them. I'm just waiting on the final word.

UPDATE: The trophies I found out are going to be glass like trophies, similar to Anime Evolutions. I'll post pictures of them when we get them in April or May.

I am still working on getting sponsors for prizes. I have about 5 stores that are interested right now. I'll be working on getting more. (It's hard to get free stuff.)
