Back from morning Mass and breakfast out - our one treat; let some one else clean up the plates - but now we have 'the rest of the aftermath' to clean up first.
So I'll be on housework for almost another hour, then re-hook-up all the networks and NAS boxen ( ox, oxen :: box, boxen?) and then we'll have a look at what's left.

I will not post names or AMV titles, but I'll do a comparison of OR and WA entries verses general sums of how many OR and WA entries made it into the contest.

Back in a while!

So we'll have to wait until the contest to see if we got in?

Playlists:

Trailers: 5 entries - 9min 39sec
Retro: 6 entries - 19min 45sec
Instrumental: 6 entries - 13min 3sec
Intensity: 6 entries - 16min 29sec
Random Amusement: 6 entries - 11min 9sec
Effects: 6 entries - 13min 1sec

Total Contest: 83min 8sec, with 35 entries selected out of 124 submitted = 28.2%

OR 3 entries selected out of 19 = 10.5%
WA 3 entries selected out of 7 = 42.8%
CA 4 entries selected out of 19 = 21.1%

23 editors sent in only 1 AMV each; 12 of those were selected for this contest.
So, YES YOU CAN be a first-timer at Kumoricon, or go all-in on one project, and get up on the screen.

Further information would start giving things away, especially to those who enjoy number pattern puzzles like sudoku, so I'll stop here.

Example: If I mention that two entries were selected from state 'x' (or country 'x') out of three submitted and there was only one entrant who sent in all three AMVs, that person would now be certain - ahead of the official playlist announcement - that he or she has two running in the contest, and that's just less fun than waiting for the silver screen itself to reveal the contestants...

Same thing happens if I were to list the anime shows that made it into the contest - people can play logical subtraction games and ruin the surprise.

One of the editors on www.amv-france.com forum has this .gif, and I think he's great:

Thanks for the participation from the French editors!

Yes. The way this contest works, the final playlist is kept under wraps until the day it hits the screen.
(Or as soon afterward as I can get to free internet - last year the previous hotel was pay-for no matter where you went - in the rooms and in the hotel lobbies. Yuck.
This delayed the forum postings with the playlists and results, and it was a pain.)

Also, this year's Judge's Choice entry has been selected and that winner will also only be announced immediately following the contest.
It might influence audience voting if it were known in advance, and that might also tamper with Best of Show, etc.

Maybe at some stage if we get 100s of entries we might try a semi-finalist stage, announce the semi's to all, then use the judges' panel to select the finalists, keep those under wraps, and then the audience votes on those to select the winners...

Awesome, I wish I could be there to see the contest. ^^ And based on the stats, I'd have to have the worst luck in the world to not have any of my entries make finals. ^^;

J'adore les editeurs français ;D
Something tells me that wasn't a very good idea...
