    Default The AMV Hell 2015 Comedy AMV Contest (Deadline April 1)

    Alright, its time for something a little different.
    It's time for a full-on AMV contest, with prizes!


    Rules:
    1. Each person may enter 1 video into the contest, and the video content must be at least 50 seconds in length. The video should be of the comedy genre.
    2. The video may not have premiered online or at any other contest or convention prior to Jan 1, 2015.
    3. It must be a single standalone AMV as opposed to multiple mini-videos joined together. This contest is NOT for videos of the "amv hell genre".
    4. The video must contain animated source material. Any kind of animation is fine, it does not explicitly have to be Japanese.
    5. The only forbidden content is hentai/porn. There are no restrictions on lyrical or audio content.
    6. The deadline to submit entries is April 1, 2015.

    Prizes:
    There will be 2 winners. My selection, and viewer selection (via poll on this website). The same video can not win both.
    Each winner will receive a certificate of accomplishment, and a $20 Amazon gift certificate.
    If anyone would like to sponsor additional prizes, please contact me.

    Entering:
    You need to upload your video to either dropbox or google drive, and then send me a link by filling out this entry form to submit your video.
    Videos should be in the MP4 format. HD video is preferred if your source material is available in HD. Video quality does matter in judging the winners, so please be sure that your video looks as good as possible.

    Once all of the entries have been collected, I will probably make them available for voting purposes via bittorrent, and also a compilation on vimeo. There will also be a forum thread where you can post a streaming link to your own video.

    I have the perfect clip for this since we don't have to censor lyrics this time. This should be fun.

    No, just so long as its a serious entry and not like 6 hours of some loop.

    Zarxs you probably should put a limit on it.
    I don't really want to watch somebodies idea of comedy when they've decided the best way to convey there idea is by using the entirety of meat loafs I'd do anything for love,It's only like 12 minutes long.

    If you get bored by it or think it's too long, skip it. It works as a lesson for the creator. All entries, so long as they're done with genuine intentions of competing and not of extremely inferior quality, should be accepted.

    No. It's up to you if you wanna keep your entry anonymous or not.

    I just need some clarity on judgment, I do plan to enter (more so win for once lols) yet depending on how the judging exactly works it will heavily influence what I do make as I am trying to win this time, before in a challenge it was just see if people liked the clip.

    If it is exactly the same as AMV minis challenge as in its Youtube level of an audience then **** I need to bust out whatever is popular and mash that together make it look competent and pander like ****. Or wise if its more local as in just the forums here then in a lot of cases such pandering will be ripped to shreds even if its AMV Hell pandering and done excellently would probably a sure fire way to lose around here.

    So I am needing to know who is the audience/judges, preferably I would love a more closed group of judges with at least a perceived image of more refinement on AMV's and comedy with would really mean I could be the most creative. However I do not think any interpretation of what you have said Zarx could be taken as that and you have already set in stone a more public method of judgment.

    Unless I come up with an original idea that reflects my wishes and it is pulled off into an extremely funny clip with the way I do clips, then I do not feel confident in winning with how I usually do clips or even humour for that matter even in this longer format, I feel more confident if its more local judgment and that allows for a better feeling the best clip does win.

    The judging will be anyone registered on this forum. Of course there is a separate winner selected entirely by me though.

    Zarx selects the winner, and Zarx had posted previously indicating an extreme enjoyment of TF2.

    So what you're saying is we need lots and lots of hats to win...?

    This will be a challenge, considering I have only made one thing longer than 1 min before. Guess it's time to dig deep into my ideas notebook
