... aaaand - she's off!

my thoughts on this:

  • any chance for a proper logo this year?

  • revised categories? in 2006 we had:
    most fun video
    best animated video
    best performance video
    best narrative video
    best choreography
    best art direction
    best editing
    best cinematography
    best unknown/unsigned director
    best new director
    director of the year
    best music video of the year
    if they're to change, call for and poll of them by end of november.

  • nominations worked out ok last year, so: personal nom's in comments by 15th december.

  • final voting on the other hand... suggestions?

keep the categories.... saves a huge step. Keep the logo- it's funny! I really liked the process last year; the only snag was the ballot stuffing that threw off the 2 categories.

The only way to do it slightly better would be for everyone to post their votes for the final 5 in comments; and then then the votes would be tallied by hand. This would discourage first time voters; ballot stuffing, and people voting for one category only.

With categories chosen; this whole thing would be a 2 step process.

slow down - there's 6 weeks still for masterpieces to be made...

captainmarc22, November 19, 2007 7:38:51 PM CET

yeah but the list should come out just before Xmas.... which means that all the voting should start just after thanksgiving. Ya know, give a week to collect nominations, a week to vote, etc.

dec 06 was pretty much excluded from last year's awards (so as to get it in the bag by x-mas as cap'marc sed) - so vids in the running should really be dec06-nov07. no?
'course, if we keep the categories as they are, i guess we could go straight to nominees around, say, 10th december.

progosk, November 19, 2007 7:49:41 PM CET

as regards the logo:

is to


is to

  • not that that's necessarily a reason to change it...

kevathens, November 19, 2007 8:26:15 PM CET

Yes please on the Dec06 - Nov07. That would make Golden Skans eligible. ;)

Gondry's all smooth, like a muscular sea lion.

captainmarc22, November 19, 2007 11:03:48 PM CET

Gondry, speaking of.... did everyone see these stills from his new bjork video?

moonman, November 20, 2007 12:32:03 AM CET

i'd like to add best video artist of the year, which means the artist who made an effort to keep the videos as a creative product
or best DIY video?
how about some "razzies" categories? like worst video or worst imitation?

najork, November 20, 2007 5:50:20 AM CET

What is the rational for not starting nominations after the year is over?

progosk, November 20, 2007 8:12:49 AM CET

best-of lists round out a year - and on the net there's always so many of them that by january they're just rank with regurgitation.
assuming we do want our stocking stuffed ('mirite?) it takes a little run-up to get the 'ville rallied...

progosk, November 21, 2007 2:11:02 PM CET

mvjunkie's concerned gondry might find the top pic offensive...
i wouldn't be surprised if it was michel himself who submitted it!

so - consensus on categories is: keep'em as is? add "best video artist"? add "best unofficial video"? can we get these straight by end of week?

lex halaby, November 21, 2007 9:41:52 PM CET

There's a reason the Academy Awards arent until February 2008 for 2007 entries. I say we wait and see what masterpieces come in the next 6 weeks. Otherwise be prepared to include all December 2006 videos as well. What's the rush?? At least wait until January to nominate. I mean, with the writers strike in effect I don't have anyone to write my acceptance speech yet jk.

kevathens, November 21, 2007 11:00:54 PM CET
