lmfao. Btw, about your derogatory comment about Black box: you had a shot of guardian going into narrows moving straight up. Like that's never been in 18474 montages before or something.

Upside down? Kind of makes it seem like one was on the bottom of the other. A normal pan would have been done, but it's not a normal pan. The camerawork is perfect

Alright so I did vote. I rewatched all of them last night:

Black Box: Great usage of angles in the beginning. Upside down angles really suprised me, but it didn't really show anything other than maps. The angle after those did, though. Most of the angles were used as a transition, only some showed what was actually going on.

Contractus: I loved some angles in this. The flythrough over bridge on the Pit is probably the best ever. They all were on high level, but not outstanding next to these montages as they were all on a high level.

Dutchy M2: Most angles were too fast gone and basically only showcased a person who got shot or was about to get shot. The sequence walking sequence on Narrows was pretty cool, reminded me of Incorporation II (although you said you haven't seen that). Only thing that wasn't well done is that 'Dutchy' jumped on the lower part of 'Flag' instead of standing on the thing where the clip started. Anyone with the right mind knows that he would've walked over there though so it's fine. I just don't like thinking while viewing a fragvid.

Frenetic Array: The map sequences showcased the important parts of the maps (in MLG) so those angles were good choices. Then after that when the player's Spartans were shown, it was basically the same over and over. In the gameplay there were angles, like the grenade sequence. What I'm about to say can be put under editing, but I think not. There was all fancy eye candy all over the screen that changed the looks of the map, while in the gameplay it was just plain ol' Construct. This changed time and place really. This was seen multiple times in the video. However, the bit with the decaying spartan did make sense. The angles throughout the gameplay, like in Dutchy's montage, only showcased kills and about-to-be killed spartans. Other angles were used as transitions.

Lost of Sight: This blew my mind really. Angles showed everything perfectly and at the right times. The panning and effects included made them even better. This seriously needs more votes.

Look Before You Leap 3: While this video is based around it, nothing was really special. They showcased the jumps very well but it's just not special. It's the same kind of style that you see in all jump videos. Don't take offense; they're well done.

Status Quo: I loved most of these angles, especially the ones where the background zooms in while the camera zooms out. But regardless of that they weren't special compared to all of these videos. They showcased situations well, though.

Line of Sight > Contractus > Status Quo > Look Before You Leap 3 > Black Box > Dutchy Montage 2 > Frenetic Array

Although I'm glad that Dutchy and Exus are winning this, I don't think it deserve to win this award. But that's my opinion.
RIP EvilLilElmo
