Loren Avedon Viral Video
Contest on YouTube!
Hey guys! I stopped
by YouTube the other day and well... got completely sucked
into it for about 3 whole hours (so much for sleep time)! They`ve got quite a library
of stuff, including lots of clips of my old movie clips! :)
Recently a buddy of mine in Japan, who happens
to be a sci-fi author publishing his first martial arts/ action
novel, has been constantly pestering me about Japanese style
animation as well as video games. He`s been telling me
I should check it out for quite a while but I never really
took him seriously because I with my schedule I never really
have time to keep up with anything on TV especially cartoons...
Or so I thought.
However, I happened
to catch an episode of the ninja-style anime Naruto on
TV at an acquaintance`s house while their kids were watching
it. That actually looks like a very interesting series! I`ve
never seen a cartoon so intense! So from now on I`ll be on
the lookout for more episodes when I have time! But now I`m
kind of curious to know what other interesting Japanese animation
series they have out there.
Thanks to my friend in
Japan, I`ve begun my indoctrination into the ways of Naruto, Bleach, Full
Metal Alechemist and Final
guy is a complete anime nut...)
But seeing as how I have little time
to scour the web for anime series I can watch during what small
amount of free time I have on the weekends, I`ve decided to
add a little fun to my research by starting the Loren
Avedon/ Anime Viral Video Contest!
The way this contest works is simple!
1) Select any one the
action clips from one of my movies (King
of the Kickboxers,
, No Surrender 2 & 3).
2) Mix with a clip from either a) your favorite
Japanese anime series b) video game
FIRE: Legend of the Ryukage promotional
video clips Naturally, I prefer something with lots
of action! No porn stuff
please! It will be rejected...
3) Add a nice contemporary soundtrack with
your favorite music!
4) Post on YouTube and email
me the link so
I can check it out! The video with the most comments wins!
The top 20 selected
video clips will be posted in my Video Log along with each
contributor`s name. The top 10 contest
winners will receive an autographed picture or movie poster
from me to show off to your friends and family!
Pretty good deal huh? :) I`m very interested
to see what you guys can come up with! Hopefully this will
give me something fun to watch at home with my family besides
Oprah... (Just kidding!)
While you`re at it, stop by my friend Walter`s
website and give him a shout. If you`re
into martial arts, anime and video games as much as he is,
you`ll probably love his upcoming book. Pretty nice work
from what I`ve read so far. Looking forward to reading the
rest of it! I`m sure you guys will have a lot to talk about!
