You understand that there is no HUD besides the kill updates right?

Also strangestick just shut up and I mean that nicely. Don't put out a highly talked about and generally well received video and then go off defending the hell out of it. On the topic of your tage, I agree with the haters. If I make a shitty hud but it takes me 10 months to edit a tage with that shitty hud on it, going frame by frame to keyframe and whatnot, it doesn't change the fact that it's a shitty hud.

First off, would everyone quit playing with scissors and sh.t, and cut the crap with the whole "I'll find a better definition of 'original' than you ever could." No one fkn cares which free, online dictionary you used to justify your stance. You're voting for which video you thought best created and executed an original idea; it's not about gameplay, editing, or implemented fart sounds, it's about an idea.

BPNick: I know you got exactly what you wanted with how you made this tage, but I just couldn't stand it. The whole time watching I felt it was just a giant video eulogy for all the random BKs you've killed in social. I understand why and how you decided to go about doing this, but I honestly couldn't buy into it. The music sounded like it came out of some area-specific scene in a Final Fantasy game rather than a song of "epic" proportion. As I mentioned before in the intro thread, that stuff is reserved for a read me or w/e, and the explanation at the end of the video is completely unnecessary. Nobody wants to hear your explanation of why and how you made this montage after having watched it; that's up to the viewer to interpret. Again, I understand why you did what you did, but I just felt the song was crap and the presentation of the clips (along with the annoying glow) just didn't deliver on the level you had hoped.

BlackBox: If you don't win cinematography, I might just have to tie empty cans of Campbells soup to my nuts and race Rhis across the Georgetown campus. Loved the presentation, but I just felt that there were a good handful of clips that really just didn't belong with the theme. Also, most clips in a montage are normally done in accord with the BlackBox definition, so while I enjoyed the presentation of the idea, I just thought it came off kinda cheesy.

FA: I guess I should not have spoke so soon about BB, because this will definitely also be a top competitor in cinematography. I'm more for giving my vote to montages that were constructed around an original idea than ones that had original ideas scattered across it. To me, it just seemed there was an array of frenetic effects here and there, and it was just another montage but I enjoyed most of the implementations and ideas adapted from other tages.

QR: Reeked of cheesiness to me. The title already kinda did me in. The vid should have been way shorter and incorporated more of the theme you were trying to present. It was a montage with instances of the theme sprinkled here and there instead of a video constructed wholly around the inception of the idea.

VVV: Nothing to see here, move along.

Animatage: I don't think it is as terrible as people are making it out to be, but I don't feel it should be going head-to-head against LBYL3 at this point in the voting. In the end of it all, all that was done was adding an extremely time-consuming and detailed custom HUD that really did nothing but distract from the gameplay. The parts with the drawing to set up a few scenes in the black-and-white were cool as hell, but as a whole, the idea just didn't deliver like it should have. You took a brave, creative approach, and that is commendable; however, you need to be more selective in your creative process and select ideas that add to the video as a whole, instead of just one entity.

LBYL3: I find it appropriate that while watching this video I had the XGames on in the background and how H3F members have again outdone themselves by drawing up talking points more retarded and groundless than the GOP. Do you think the judges at the XGames would weigh the creativity and originality of the athletes' tricks by weighing them against the general idea of what they're doing? "Well, his trick was done pretty well, but all he is doing is going into the air and twisting himself and the board just like everyone else has done." Yea, that's how dumb you sound. Needless to say, the bunch of you cannot fathom the concept that all of the jumps were created from scratch and no one knew if they could be made. This sort of gameplay is infinitely times harder to come by because gameplay in fragvids is simply the results of a player against his environment; here in this jump video, the players had to take their environment and create from it. The only creating done in a fragvid comes in the editing scheme of things, which a few tried in this category but came up short. If you can't discover the creativity and originality behind each of these jumps, then you're either delusional, or all that masturbating to hentai porn has finally made you blind.

Nobody really touches LBYL3 in this category. A shame that Animatage is really the contender it's facing.

Is that the second time today you said something about masturbating until blindness today?

If so, Bravo. <3

Let me spell it out for you



^ is all a part of halo 3's hud.

Halo is a futuristic game, and therefore has a futuristic looking hud. When you take a futuristic looking game and slap cartoon sh.t on top of it it doesn't fit. Animatage's HUD wasn't original, it was flat out stupid.

put the f**kin lotion in the basket
