Default Abunai '07 AMV Contest

I saw that the events page was not up yet.
But I assume that the rules are still the same and that there'll be still a amv competition.
Still the 3 min rule etc...

Okay who's going to join the competion and what are ya planning to do(if you want to tell it)

All I'll tell is that im going to take a whole different approach with my amv.
I'm also gonna try to make a sentimental amv. (ah im not good in that kinda stuff but that's what it makes so interesting )

The con is still 3 months away and no deadline and i know myself if i dont start now it's gonna be a rush job all over again.

Who else is going to join the compo this year?


-mod-edit-

a complete list of all '07 entries can be seen in this post:

AMV's can be delivered in the following formats:
Video: H.264 / XviD / DivX (no Windows Media files or other crap formats pls)
Audio: MP3 / AAC / OGG
Containers: MKV / MP4 / AVI

I really don't like MPEG2 streams as those sometimes can be very huge and if bad encoded, could look up very messed up.
I advice to use XviD with MP3 in a AVI container with minimum of 800 to 1000 bitrate stream for video settings. Also for better encode quality, use a 2-pass encoding (look up at http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/xvid-vdub-final.htm for help. This example show a AviSynth script to encode but you can open other then AVS files too in it), with 2-pass encoding you can set the correct filesize aswell, or set the bitrate you want to use.

Let me know if you need more information.

I will participate this year. My first AMV ever.
I created my first rough version yesterday. I made huge accidental error, which somehow made it far stronger. Hurray for accidents.

showed it to a few friends and they gave some comments. Really usefull. Mainly about a few editing things which are due to my inexperience. I am quite happy with this rough version already, but, with 3 more months untill the abunaicon, I do not intent to be done just yet.

I am working on a vid now. but i might not be able to make it to the con. it is not that i dont want to. its just that i dont have any clue on accommidations yet.

but if it is possible without being there i still want to send in the vid. its nothing out of the blue. having some kind of a writers block on new ideas. but atleast what i have shown to people is in the liking.

I'll have to disappoint you there... The AMV compo is a competition for Abunai visitors, it's not an open competition or anything. Last year we showed a few AMVs that were disqualified for several reasons, but this was a last minute decision and I can't guarantee we will do something like that again. Especially if we fill the time set for the competition completely, then nothing extra will be shown to begin with... and I really hope we're able to fill up that time.
