definitely. Because a small group of selectively picked people is much more important for your videos success, than a large group of non-streamed voters.

I agree with half of what you're saying. A video needs a large group of voters to succeed. On the other hand contests like this boil down largely to popularity contests. The best video in terms of technical prowess doesn't always win the popular vote. The people who edit videos on a regular basis are far more qualified to make that distinction than those of us who don't.

that is exactly the point. Its not based on technical prowess. its "best picture" meaning, the one people found to be the best. ergo, most enjoyable, by that person. Hell, if I made a video with me doing a blackflip on a mongoose with a 10 minute Windows Movie maker intro and 10 minute Credits, if thats what people enjoy the most, then I should win. There is a "judges choice" award, because we do want to celebrate peoples achievements at bringing together good clips and editing, from the perspective of the minortiy that would consider themselves experts (or atleast well-read) on the subject. buts its always important that the main prize is down to public popularity. That is always, ALWAYS the objective of a film maker.

Hey, I agree with you, a contest designed to suss out the popular opinion of the masses is going to be won by the most entertaining video, and well it should be. I just also believe that the people who edit should be in some way recognized for their own personal skill, hence why I don't think that the Judge's Choice category should be discounted.

Oh, I completely agree. Of course, when my dad directs a short film, I don't want a bunch of bogans (rednecks, I suppose?) to judge it. I want experts to Judge it. But if he ever wanted to make it bigger than festival, he has to make something that appeals to the general public. Doesn't matter if your artsy french film is incredibly well put together and fits the genre well, your next door neighbour steve will probably call it boring and chuck Die Hard 4 into his DvD player. I'm not saying Dutchy Montage 2 is for the uniformed hicks, just to lcear that up. i am just using examples. I voted for M2.











fuck steve.

Yeah, fair enough. I tend to get bored watching art piece films too, but I try to acknowledge them for what they are. Let's be honest, I'd rather watch a spaceship explode than a masterfully filmed short about cherry blossoms, regardless of how well technically executed it was. I just honestly believe that society would lose a big piece of itself if we lost that more artistic aspect.
