Now for the special awards. These awards only had a winner listed, so let’s get into it. The winner of the People’s Choice award (that is, voted by the public) was “Ladyboy Chainsaw” by Rendakor of the USA. This is a funny parody of Lollipop Chainsaw. He uses “Kore wa Zombie desu ka?” & “Kore wa Zombie desu ka? Of the Dead” with the audio of the Lollipop Chainsaw announcement trailer. It has action, it has comedy, it has a bit of everything. You can check out “Ladyboy Chainsaw” below.

The Judge’s Choice Award went to “Starships Were Meant to Pierce the Heavens” by Luminaire of the USA. While the song isn’t something that will blast out of my headphones anytime soon, Luminaire chose a great song to fit his AMV. Not only that, the editing is smooth and splendid and he uses the clips to great effect. Overall, an excellent piece of work. Check out “Starships Were Meant to Pierce the Heavens” at this link. The anime Gurren Lagann was used.

The Best Technical Award went to “Feelings” by [madaraxD] of Argentina. The judges believe that this is technically excellent and I have to agree with them. Excellent use of effects, good transitions and tremendous use of music to fit with the video. Congratulations to [madaraxD] for winning the technical award. “Feelings” can be seen below.

For the winners, congratulations for winning the categories. Your hard work has been recognised. For those who didn’t win, don’t see it as losing. Instead, see it as an opportunity or experience to improve on your AMV techniques. The audience enjoyed each AMV screened throughout the day and the winners themselves. With another AMV competition done and dusted, it’s time to look forward to the 2013 AMV competition.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
