Iron Editor at Otakon 2009


Who?
Bryce Winant (JMI/Bryce and the Fat Man) returns to Otakon for a third year to see if he can pull off a hat-trick victory against challenger Jeremy Soria (Brakus Media).

What?
IRON FREAKIN' EDITOR. Each contestant will have two hours to create an AMV that doesn't suck and adheres to the theme "Shonen Shodown".

How?
Each contestant will be given 5 anime sources, of which at least three must be used. Each contestant is allowed to cut their audio ahead of time and bring it with them to the event. They may bring multiple tracks if they so desire, as no audio will be provided during the event. In addition, each editor must use at least 1 second of the mandatory secret ingredient. It's a secret because the competitors don't know what it will be until it's showtime! It's a secret to everybody! Eastmost penninsula is the secret! It's dangerous to go alone! Take this!

Sources (Would you believe that Vic didn't own any of these shows to start out with?):
1. Naruto - 131-135
2. Bleach - 37-41
3. One Piece Movie 9
4. Dragonball Movie 8
5. Saint Seiya - 36-40

When and Where:
Otakon 2009. July 18th. Time is pending. Usually during the cosplay.

Why:
So that they can get into the con for free. But, they're not the only winners in this deal! Yes, Bob Babcock will be hosting as always, and will bring his infamous clipboard of games along with him so that the audience will have chances at winning FABULOUS PRIZES! (Disclaimer: Prizes may or may not be fabulous.)

Bonus awesome!
AMV Contest winners will be announced during Iron Editor, and this year we're not waiting until the end before we start announcing them, so stake out your seat and settle in if you want to find out the winning videos as they're announced!
