In movies it is never 1st person view.

So in a halo montage since it is pretty much all first person the cinematography is the actual gameplay. So pretty much the person playing the game is like the camera recording angles in movies, it is showing the footage of the movie. Not sure if you guys get what im trying to say but yeah. Makes complete sense to me.

oh here is another thing that might make you understand:

imagine if there was no HUD. What does it look like? It would pretty much look like a camera going around the map showing people die, just like an angle would.

ANYONE GET WHAT I AM TYPING!!?

*facepalm*

That has nothing to do with this competition's intention of the award. Please vote based on the definition we give you, otherwise these sub-awards are meaningless. Refer back to the original post, don't make up your own inaccurate interpretation.

it says the award is for best angles and how the editor used them. I am saying that the clips are in fact angles as well. So I am voting for which video used all the footage the best.

anyways my opinion of what it is aside, best "angles" goes to Contractus.

oh and i redid my post above you frag.

That's great.

but that's not what this award is about. When you read a sign that says "STOP" when you're driving, you don't say "Oh hey, maybe it's telling me to STOP driving so slow", and then speed up. You stop your f..king car because that's the meaning the government assigned to that sign.

Read the OP. Understand what the award is about. Vote accordingly.
Stop with your nonsense interpretations, clip placement has NOTHING to do with this award. That is for Best Editing award, and the gameplay itself is for Best Gameplay.

dude, you are not voting on the first person point of view footage. you are voting on the 3rd person views with the f..king theater camera. cinematography has nothing to do with some kid in theater pressing the A button once and then 10 seconds later pressing A again to stop it. first person views=its either perfect or its messed up because you captured it wrong. it has absolutely nothing to do with cinematography.

No, because this award has nothing to do with math.

Either way, the name isn't important. I could call this award BEST GAY SEX award, and it wouldn't matter. What's important is the explanation of the award WE, the contest runners, supply you with.

I don't care if your interpretation of the word we used for this award makes complete sense (which it doesn't), all that matters is the definition we give you. You know why? Because it's our competition, our rules, and our award. That's what makes you wrong.

Gameplay and editing have nothing to do with this award, so please do not take that into consideration when voting. Only abide by the definition we, the competition runners, give you. If you still don't understand why, refer back to the stop sign analogy.

I think that you could also add that Cinematography depends on how the use of the angles was used in creating the flow and structure of the video. Sure someone can sit there moving a camera around, but in my opinion it's how the angles were used and why they were used that defines it for me.

Correct me if you think I'm wrong. I'm very open minded to all of this and I think all the contestants did very well with their cinematography.
