You should really give prizes to different genres of movies. I have seen many great sprite movies that are well done, unfortunatley mant dont give sprite animators the respect they deserve. A hand drawn movie may be very good but if a sprite comes along thats better but since the author didnt do any thing to actually create, most will shun it.
I know it sounds stupid to many of you but it's hard to explain so screw you it sounds good in ym head
I actually believe that is a great idea. But it would kind of get complex. Because how many different genres could there be. Let me think of 5 off the top of my head that might work.
1.) Sprites (Best sprite movie)
2.) Hand Drawn (Best movie graphics wise that was animated)
3.) Action (Best action movie)
4.) Comedy (Best comedy movie)
5.) Miscellanious (for movies that are good, but dont fall into one of the above categories)
In my opinion, these are good categories, but odds are, not many others will agree. People will say, "What if there were no good sprite movies, and 2 really good action movies." And when they say this, i cant help but agree with them. Although it would be nice to have categories like this...it would cause too many problems. The only reason why i would want categories is for giving the award to different types of movies. (I am also submitting 2 Sprite movies with PhoenixCrossX very soon, its the finale to Sonic Matrixa, part one is in my sig.) But... i think it should overall just stay as is to avoid much conflict. But its not up to me...its up to Tom, so whatever he chooses to do is up to him...odds are, he is going to leave it as is...in which i dont blame him at all.
