The other 90% is finding the spot where you can do it perfectly or just creating a specific series of maneuvers to successfully land it.

Try it yourself. Look at an area where you would like to reach then try to create a parkour to get there. It's not that easy and could easily take more time and creativity to achieve then any montage clip. Not only do you want to incorporate other elements that add to the challenge such as jumping off a bird but you need to do something no one has ever seen. Creating something completely original and new is hard when you have to time everything so perfectly.

Heres my picks after watching all the things in each category:

Best Intro: Dutchy M2 (This is war gives me chills ) with Frenetic Array being the runnerup (Song is epic, Inception trailer <3)
Most Original: The Animatage with Black Box right behind.
Best Cinematography: Black Box with Contractus in second.
Best Gameplay: Neighbor+Hysteria with Contractus in second. Contractus' gameplay might not of been as good as Dutchy's but it was presented way better, props to Nv1ncible.
Best Editing
: Contractus, Black Box in second.
Best Video: 1st: Contractus, 2nd: Black Box, 3rd: Refuse 2 Lose

Refuse 2 Lose should of been nominated in one of the sub categories and it most likely won't get anywhere near the top 3 best videos, but it was very good and Konnvict should get some recognition.

I get what you mean about doing all that. It still doesn't change my opinion. If I were to start doing this I wouldnt find it hard after a little practice. The majority of other people wouldn't either.

Heres the difference:

Almost anyone can jump a shit ton and be good at it.
Not everyone can be good at the game from playing a lot, you need to be naturally talented.

Also I know you are saying some people that jump as much as you do or even more can't do jumps as good. Maybe they are just really bad at the game. If you got all the best halo players in the world, and made them do jumps for a year, they would pull off shit way better then this more than likely. Its not a matter of skill.

Um actually if you throw a grenade in the EXACT same place then the cone will fly the EXACT same way. It's called game physics and it doesn't change every time you press the L trigger lol

Don't get me wrong, I know how long it takes to do some of these jumps, and I agree with it being up there for best gameplay, but I don't think it should take 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Jumping is difficult but when it comes down to it, it's just practicing the same thing over and over. The difference is with clips against other people, you don't have time to set up, and the variables are constantly changing because you don't have control over them. In jumping it's all up to you...

Having said that, here are my pics.

You are so wrong. Almost anyone can jump a shit ton and be good at it? Is that a fucking joke? Do you know the amount of effort they put in to LBYL3? Even if it DID take hundreds of takes to get the jump, at least they pulled it off. I would love to see you pull off HALF of those jumps with a year of practice.


It's better to live one day as a lion,
Than a thousand years as a lamb.

A year of practice? I would be able to make them in my sleep. A YEAR? come on now.

although I do think Expired's point is kinda dumb...i mean, if we gave all the best players in the world a YEAR to get clips and made one big montage it would be better than all of those up there.. (legacy any1?)

I think the difference between the 2 kinds of vids is Trick Jumping allows you to be more creative than regular tages. It's like virtual Parkour lol

Personally I think Frenetic Array should win best cinematography, not best editing. The editing seriously detracted from the gameplay, to the extent that it was like watching an overly long trailer (especially with the music choice). I'm not sure why Rewind 3 got a nomination for editing (other than the SICK intro) but I'll be voting for Black Box in that category anyway.
