Mark, please igonre BucsFan1. He is obviously upset that either he or a friend did not get into this round. He may have some valid points about some of the videos and some of the judging, but since he has posted this on every single one I have read so far, I would have to say he is not too discriminating in his comments. You did a wonderful job, Mark. None of these comments apply to you.

I am an eighth grader. I created this as an original work myself. I took all of the pictures. I made the entire production with one camera, a computer, a tripod, and a whole lot of stuffed animals. I could have posted a version with higher resolution, but I didn't know what the file size limit was. There were a lot of very good videos that didn't make the top 20, and they deserve some sort of consolation prize.

After watching this and the other top 20 videos I am sad to say I am more than disapointed with the flawed judging systems on this website. This contest was ment to bring out creative ideas from people that have actual talent in making thier own videos, inspiring kids around thier age to get out and vote. Instead I have seen nothing except things thats were clearly stated as against the rules, such as copyrighted material (half of the songs to these videos are from real artists some are even dead, and I could easily find all of these pictures on google images). These videos are not creative nor interesting and I am positive they do nothing but make voting a negative thing. Honestly someone with absolutly no knowlege of making videos could come on here and win. I don't look forward to seeing the end of this now because I can expect only worse disapointment. What you need is real judging not letting a website do it for you. I strongly encourage you to take a look at all of these and fix the serious mistakes about leaving a voting system that is easily broken and can be cheated on do your work, and make a video that took actual time and effort pay off.

There is absolutely no reason why this video should have made it to this round above rufus says: get excited, the power of old school rap, and Codi Wassar. You guys only won by means of flawed judging systems.
