Original means to be different, stand out, be the first, and that is exactly what the Animatage was. Bye.
1. Multi-Kill montages (Every single video in this competition) have been done 1000000x more times. Checkmate.

2. TONS of creativity go into these jumps, unlike multi-kills, they are un-comparable in the way you're trying to make it. Unlike multi-kills, you will never see the same jump twice

3. Custom HUD has been around for a lonnnngg time, I've seen every effect in the animatage done in at least another form at least one time, the only thing I saw that I hadn't ever seen before was the flaming eyes transition. And this leads onto my next point. You said to be original, they have to BE DIFFERENT, well... LBYL3 did exactly that, I gaurantee, minus one or two jumps that people stole because the video got leaked a little early at one time, you have never seen any one of those jumps before.

I've seen 95% of all the jumps in the video already. Therefore nothing surprised me for the video so Animatage got my vote.

How are jump montages less original than regular montages?

Unless you saw the leaked version (which shouldnt matter since its the same video) thats bullshit.

I'm a little confused. Black Box and LBYL stick out far beyond the others.

Animatage sure had a lot of work put into it, but it wasn't original...

By the pure definition LBYL3 doesn't even really qualify for this category. Jumping is a thing, lots of people do it, it's not original.

Although, if you want to say the techniques they used and the things they were able to accomplish, it still doesn't qualify for this category. Because jumping in montages is considered to be "gameplay" and since that is the case, Dutchy, and anyone with gameplay that hasn't been previously seen before would be nominated with this category.

I can see why this would get some votes for being original, some of the things they did (the brute shots shooting some guy to the top of the map) was cool, yes...but it doesn't even compare to a video like the animatage which oozes originality.

By the pure definition, none of the videos even really qualify for this category. Shooting people and jumping are things, lots of people do it, it's not original.
