My AMV did not make it to finals at Katsucon. T___T
It was my "To be By your side" Digimon AMV
. I consider it one of my best ever made, easily in my top three. I really thought it had a chance....it's was an unusual anime choice (They like to pic out both popular and also unusual anime choices to keep it fresh), it was so well timed and thought out, all done in HIGH resolution with japanese raws, had some snazzy effects, and was really heartfelt. I worked so hard
to get it done by the deadline, I was working on it for a week straight to the sacrifice of all else.... and it was definitely just as good as the kind of things I see at finals at cons, if not better than some.
I guess the competition again was too strong.... or they didn't like it...or something *Sob* .... ;3;
On top of that they just told us there would be NO OVERFLOW
(so the only amv's shown at the con will be the 35 in the contest). This makes me mad cause ALL cons have overflow, they said: "The AMV staff was made aware of this just recently due to extreme time restrictions this year for the Video Rooms at con. Trust me, the AMV staff sends out its' deepest apologies to any and all who were interested in participating in the Overflow Event."
Yea okay so you gotta show more episodes of Harui when you could be showing people's original AMV's. >_> So now NO ONE gets to see it there. I just wanted to see people's reactions to it, even it was just in overflows!
I'll just have to enter it at Katsu and Anime next....but if it didn't make it here it has no chance at Otakon, which gets over 150 entries when Katsu gets like 75. *sigh* I'll still try tho....
*sigh*On top of that my re-reg I did a month ago never went through
and I only knew this because I just got my credit card bill and the charge was not on it. (They don't send out email confirmation to online registers, they put you name on an online list which was updated recently). So I'll need to be in line first thing to snag one of the remaining 1800 at the door badges.
So I'm just kinda in a sad mood right now. I hope I get a badge, I don't wanna get there and not be able to get in! >_>
*sighs some more about the AMV*
