Anime Weekend Atlanta 2014


Who?
Irriadin puts his guns on and defends his title against…THE HAT OF MYSTERY.  We received quite a few requests for competitors this year so we’re going to make things interesting by putting all of their names into a hat and picking one live before the event starts.  For mega-drama, each potential competitor has been sworn to secrecy, so let the psychological trolling begin!

What is this I don’t even
Each contestant will have two hours to create an AMV that doesn’t suck and adheres to the theme “RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE”. This time, no matter who wins, the machines lose.

How?
Each contestant will be given 5 anime sources, and all five must be used. Each contestant is allowed to cut their audio ahead of time and bring it with them to the event. They may bring multiple tracks if they so desire, as no audio will be provided during the event. In addition, each editor must use at least 1 second of the secret ingredient.

Mardock Scramble: The First Compression
Armitage III: Dual Matrix
Ghost in the Shell 2.0
Metropolis
The Animatrix
Plus a secret ingredient too awesome to list!

When and Where:
The VAT, right after the AMV Awards have finished being doled out.  Vlad, the ‘-Chans, and whoever else he can guilt into helping, will be hosting various games and whatnot during the event.

Why:
Why not? Also there’s a medal and stuff.

Iron Editor Otakon 2014 Info

Who?
MyCatHatesYouAMV has gotten himself into a Hot Mess taking on newly crowned Otakon Iron Editor champion KireBlue.  Will KireBlue score another victory or will Otakon 2014 be his Final Destination?

What is this I don’t even
Each contestant will have two hours to create an AMV that doesn’t suck and adheres to the theme “SPACE”.  Only ONE man will emerge victorious, and that man…is Chuck Norris.  But if TWO men happen to emerge victorious, it’ll be Chuck and one of these Goofy Goobers.

How?
Each contestant will be given 5 anime sources, and all five must be used. Each contestant is allowed to cut their audio ahead of time and bring it with them to the event. They may bring multiple tracks if they so desire, as no audio will be provided during the event. In addition, each editor must use at least 1 second of the secret ingredient.

When and Where:
