almotasim: Is this the final post?


         
almotasim, December 19, 2012 5:52:27 PM CET

Yep. No changes at all. I'm just gonna add some thumbnails of the nominees in it.


         
120384, December 19, 2012 6:33:24 PM CET

Thanks for you work, but imo, it miss a lot of good things, Saman Keshavarz, Daniels, Young Replicant, Peter Simonite, Peter Sluszka, Charles De Meyer, Mikey Please, David Lewandowski, Norman Bates, Dan Brown, Skinny...


         
almotasim, December 19, 2012 6:42:25 PM CET

Well, too bad you didn't vote in the nominations call, 120384. This was a lot of work indeed, but it was a sheer pleasure. Antville has given me so much in the last 6 (7?) years that it felt really good to have the opportunity to give some back.


         
120384, December 19, 2012 7:16:06 PM CET

Yes, unfortunately, I'm a bit late for the nominations call, I saw it and I could not do it at that time, and after I forgot, my fault. ;)


         
progosk, December 19, 2012 9:42:48 PM CET

complimentz o' the house, almo - classy work.


         
almotasim, December 19, 2012 10:33:34 PM CET

I would like to thank progosk, kevathens and brigs for all your help during this process: please forgive my dumbness, confusion and silly questions.


         
Kozoru, December 20, 2012 2:54:53 AM CET

Emily Kai Bock's name is misspelled in the Best New Director nomination.


         
almotasim, December 20, 2012 4:16:32 AM CET

Thank you for the notice, Kozoru. My bad. I'll make sure it will be corrected when i'll publish the winners and the other nominees list for each category. It's always a bummer to misspell somebody's name.

Great work as usual, almotasim. Thank you. Happy new year.

Way to go dudes!


         
otc, December 23, 2012 12:21:48 AM CET

Thanks almotasim. And great work, whoever did the logo.


         
almotasim, December 23, 2012 1:02:07 AM CET

You're welcome, otc. The logo was made by a dear and talented friend of mine named Bruno Roda. You can check the full graphic identity treatment here: videos.antville.org


         
Whocares, December 23, 2012 3:22:29 PM CET

Hi guys, the Woodkid -"Lolita Lempicka" isn't an advert for a fragrance ? I don't get why it's here.


         
almotasim, December 23, 2012 4:23:17 PM CET

It's here because it was nominated by antvillers (not me). The same could be said about "Until The Quiet Comes" which is arguably a short film. I think that's the most interesting way to do it though: more important than the purpose of its production, it's the way it was consumed and disseminated and, on both cases, antvillers, fans and other users perceived them as music videos.


         
my name is legion, December 23, 2012 10:20:21 PM CET

until the quiet comes is more of a music video than lempika lolita. its a promo video, if you must, it helps sell the album, if not a single.

but lempicka is an ad and should be scrapped off the list


         
almotasim, December 24, 2012 12:56:53 PM CET

Well, personally, and unless there is some kind of uprising of the community, i won't scrap it out of respect of the antvillers who took the decision and the trouble to nominate it.


         
jevaad, December 25, 2012 4:09:41 AM CET

I believe "No Church In The Wild" is the best video of year, but, unfortunately it is not even listed in the nominees.


         
almotasim, December 25, 2012 11:22:24 AM CET

Well, it was nominated for best hip-hop and best cinematography. And it came pretty close to win the last one.
