The resulting videos from the EXTREME Iron Editor competition at Another Anime Con 2009.
It was a tag-team match between the Green Team (LantisEscudo & inthesto) and the Blue Team (Kiarrens & OtakuForLife).
The full details of the competition, including the tortures visited upon the editors by dokool and BasharOfTheAges:
*Extreme Challenge Summary*
First Source Revealed: Demonbane
Steady Hands – Alts are forced to play Operation with an eye-patch on until someone gets 3 pieces. (arm weights were, sadly, missing)
Winner – inthesto
Hypothermia Challenge – Both alts plunge their hands into ice water and keep them there. First to remove a hand loses. (this lasted 20 minutes, and resulted in 4 emptied cans of silly string as well as possible nerve damage. We forced them to switch off with their partners and immediately start editing.)
Winner – tie.
Second Source Revealed: Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight
On The Hunt – Alts are given a camera and a scavenger hunt list of cosplayers, staffers, and Guests and 20 min to take as many pictures as they can.
Winner – Kiarrens (but points were awarded per picture anyways)
Nice Boat Balloon Pop – Alts are presented with a pile of balloons – each of which has a piece of paper in it. All have phrases on them the alt has to call out after reading, until they find the correct one – Nice Boat! – The first one done wins.
Winner – Otaku4Life
Third Source Revealed: “Nice Boat” episode of School Days
One Ring To Bind Them –
A) Alts must find the hidden box with their color on it (on Bashar’s Car) and return it to main stage.
*Lantis docked 20pts for unsportsmanlike conduct in taking both boxes, leaving otaku4life confused in the parking lot for 20 min.
B) Inside this box is a hello kitty lip-gloss ring locked by a pad lock. The keys to the padlocks are at the bottom of a vat of shaving cream. First to Unlock their box, wins part B.
Winner – Otaku4life
Final Source Revealed: The Hobbit (Rankin-Bass’s 1979 version)
A Little Trivia While We Render – A Little Retrospect is played. All editors name the AMVs used – 2 pts a piece.
*no real winner – just awarded points until we were done*
