There are a lot of good new videos coming out, and hopefully more to come. I think with all of this greatness going on it would be kind of cool to recognize people who are standout in their fields and really helping the community with a short awards ceremony during the final day. Hell, if it’s the Year’s Annual SF Gathering with a side o’ tourney, we should at least pump up the fanfare. I think it’d be nifty. According to the In-n-Out receipt I just found in my back pocket, the categories would be:
Best Combo video (content-wise)
Best Tutorial video (all games inclusive)
Best Glitch video (all games inclusive)
Best 3s vid (any type)
Best Marvel vid (any type)
Best GGXX/#R vid (any type)
Best ‘Other’ vid (any type, for games not listed above)
Best Editing (video editing/effects/theme on a particular video)
Best overall Editor/Group (I.E. Meikyousisui, Azn Angels, or just plain old MikeZ)
We’re really starting to come together as a community, and I’d like to see more work in the video field. Evo is the stage that a large portion of the community watches intently. I think that this sort of thing would really promote a growth in the video field, which is always good for spreading of info and such.
Also, for those curious, I’d completely eliminate myself from the nominations. I’d like to be a judge though(I’d also recommend SlimX, MikeZ, and Xenozip for their work in the field and sheer knowledge of shit from shinola), if we can get this thing down. I’m willing to put up any supplies needed, edit the clips for the showcasing (what would a video awards show be without an AMAZING clip showcase? I’m talking full-on MTV VMAs here) and anything else required to get it going. I just want 30 minutes or so main-stage time to give recognition to the people who are putting forth the extra effort to get the knowledge out.
N - Just a thought.
