    Hey guys! Yup, the Top 5's back. Not many entries this week (although they were all wonderful!) -- so if you'd like to submit your AMV(s) next week, be sure and go for it (and tag them as 'top 5' if you do)! We can't keep the contest going without entries!

    This Week's Judge(s): Stardust

    1. {Kingdom Hearts} Will you be ready?

    {Kingdom Hearts} Will you be ready?

    Song: 2-1 by Imogen Heap
    Details: I just adore this video, the atmosphere is impeccable. The effects are subtle and the text simple -- which I think is a great strength here as they're used wonderfully to help make the video pop. It's simplistic, but extremely effective. Awesome, awesome job on this! My only critique is that I wish there was more variety with the text placement; I would have liked to have seen it outside of the top-right corner a bit more.

    [KH] - Losing Your Memory

    Song: Losing Your Memory by Ryan Star
    Details: Absolutely wonderful. The effects and text are non-intrusive and complement the footage well, and the voice layovers are really well placed. The result is something genuinely emotional, and the end especially packs a punch! Fantastic work! My only advice is to be careful of typos, haha, but it happens.

    4. KH - Me & You
    Submitted by: Mage
    Song: Me & You by Nero
    Details: Short but sweet! Lots of cool effects in this one, I really enjoyed it. Really fun and eye popping. Using static images is always a bit risky and some of the transitions & text felt a little out of place to me, so I suppose if I had any critique for this it would be to use them sparingly, and to make sure nothing sits still on the screen for too long. Nice work!

    4. Fall For You:: PrincessKairixXx
    Submitted by: starlight2011studios
    Song: Fall for You by Secondhand Serenade
    Details: Very emotional! The bold text was an interesting choice but it worked well to emphasize the lyrics, and helped create the atmosphere. Nice work with the voice overs as well; when they're too loud they can be distracting but they fit right in.

    5. Aerith & Terra - I'm H O L D I N G Out for a H E R O
    Submitted by: Ankoku
    Song: Holding Out for a Hero by Ellie Mae Bowen
    Details: Really sweet, gentle video, great job! Solid editing overall. In terms of critique, I felt the overlay was nice but perhaps a bit heavy. Beautiful work!

    Congratulations to all who placed this week!
    Haven't placed yet? Don't give up! Your video certainly was not bad, and you may place in a future week.
