I am disappoint.

As a professional photographer and freelance wedding videographer, I spend a lot of time behind the camera. I love most of the entries in here, because it seems that those who took the time to capture the shots for each montage, really took time to think out and present each shot. With the exception of one.

Unfortunately, that montage is the one that is winning. Dutchy M2 is an excellent montage, with amazing frags, and mindblowing editing. However, the shots themselves bring nothing revolutionary - or even slightly different - from pretty much any other video before it. I was actually surprised this made it as a nomination. The shots were by no means awful. They were captured excellently, but I found them droll and boring in their execution. Which is okay, because in a montage it's really about the first person views and the killing. The cinematics should come second in a fast-paced video that's all about clip presentation.

I can't help but get the sneaking suspicion, that Dutchy is only winning because of his fan-base, and their lack of knowledge on the subject of cinematography. An ignorance proven more than once in this thread. I strongly urge everyone who has yet to vote, to go look into some terminology ( ie, panning, trucking, dollying, rule of thirds, rule of 180, etc.), then watch the video.
Turn off the music and watch the videos for just the camerawork.

Dutchy and all those involved in the production of your video:
Please take no offense to this. Your video is excellent, I just think it's a crime that it's winning over excellent entries like the BB, SQ, or LBYL.

Edit:
To whoever said something about mapping out every shot to fit the video: Welcome to every cinematographers' world. It's called a shot list, and it's not all too uncommon for people to draw out the shots and their movements before filming them.

I also agree that Dutchy is probably just winning because of his fan base unfortunately.

I can't believe dutchy is winning over LBYL,sQ, and Contractus. Sorry but it should be behind all of those, my vote went to LBYL

This is really ridiculous. If this category was for editing, Dutchy's may be fit. This is almost like the last comp when Dualtality was close to Kampys Final (Nothing against kampy, I voted for contractus). Dualtality had art. It was elegant. This award is much like that, which makes me think why should Dutchy's be winning this category...

The fan base has alot to do with it.

This is a valid reason for putting the sub categories after the main competition. But Hindsight is 20:20.

Once people vote on the real thing they might keep it in their mind that it's a different poll. But we can't cater to morons.
