Over the weekend I participated in Anime Iowa's Iron Editor competition and shockingly, I won! Considering that immediately after that, my video Breathe Again won Best in Show at the AMV contest, I had a consistent series of small heart attacks the entire rest of the weekend. Especially since I've never won anything before at these competitions, I still don't believe it.
For Iron Editor we were given six hours (starting at midnight) to complete an entire AMV. We had to provide the footage ourselves, but the total length of the footage could not exceed eight hours. We did not know what song we were to edit to, that would be given out just as the competition started. I competed against two other very talented women, Anime Faerie and SpiffyNerd who made the experience extremely fun. See below for links to their versions! The footage I (thankfully) chose was FLCL (Furi Kuri) and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The mystery song was I, My, Me, Mine by Polysics.
