WINNERS / The Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World One Year Anniversary Music Video Remix Challenge!

A month ago I set you guys the task of coming up with the visuals to an Osymyso mash up revolving around ‘Scott Pilgrim’. The idea was to post the results of the winners on Saturday the 13th to mark the 1st anniversary of the film’s release. So why I am posting this on Monday, a full 48 hours later?

Because the people that contribute to this site are damn fine editors.

So this was the competition I set back in July.

Over the last year I’ve been amazed at all the recuts, re-edits and mash-ups of my films. As someone who spent his teens re-editing movies on VHS, I am extremely heartened by your constant reinvention of scenes from the movies, be it a complex montage or a simple GIF.

To celebrate the one year anniversary of ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World’s release OsyMyso has offered up an exclusive musical remix of the fight scenes and themes from the film. I want you to cut the accompanying music video!

On August 13th I will post my favourite of the bunch and there will be a mysterious prize for the victor. Mysterious in that, I don’t know what it is yet.

The mystery is that I still don’t know what the prize is. That is up to the winner.

So who won? Well I have to say it’s been an overwhelmingly response. Everyone who submitted an entry made an incredible effort, so it pains me to only pick one champion. There’s no such thing as a best entry, only my favourite clip. It’s cheesy to say that you’re all winners, but anyone who made the massive effort to enter this is forever golden in my book.

So let’s look at my top pick and ten runners up that will get some signed goodies.

WINNER! Scott Pilgrim vs the World: 1st Anniversary Video Remix | martinovicable

My favourite entry is by Paul Martinovic. It’s difficult to pick a winner and all the entries were amazing, but this was thoroughly well researched, used the largest amount of disparate media and frequently made me laugh out loud. Guest starring Flash, Princes Barin & Voltan, The Beasties, Cheryl Cole and featuring damn near every video game reference from the books and the films, enjoy this great montage.

And what does Mr Martino get as his prize? Well that is up to him. He has to send me a list of ten prizes he’d like and will try and make at least one of those wishes come true. Paul, we will be in touch!

Now let’s look at just some of the other amazing work submitted.

RUNNERS UP

2 – Scott Pilgrim “One Year Challenge” music video | Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith’s piece is super tight, great transitions all the way through. Brilliantly done.

3 – Scott Pilgrim – Fight Remix | Lee Taylor

Lee Taylor’s piece is armed with super sharp synch and crazy fast edits all the way.

4 – SCOTT PILGRIM vs THE WORLD EDGAR WRITE – OSYMYSO MASHUP CHALLENGE | tracysaven

This clip expertly crosscut elements from the original comics and the Ubisoft video game to thrilling effect.

5 – Scott Pilgrim Doesn’t Get A Break | Chaosblare

This clip is insane, layering new graphics onto the movie and with crazy additions throughout. A huge amount of work went into it.

6 – Scott Pilgrim Mashed Up | wearetheoxymorons | Fergusmackellar

This entry has tight edits, new transitions fashioned seamlessly out of old ones and great titles throughout.

7 – Scott Pilgrim “FIGHT” Music Video | Zack Beshears

Zack’s piece is beautifully put together, thought out and is thoroughly elegant.

8 – Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World | Osymyso Fight Remix | Hoolopee

This excellent piece of post is by David Post. As well as painstaking roto, he also appears himself as an 80 ft tall, purple suited dude. Now that’s commitment.

9 – SCOTT PILGRIM MUSIC VIDEO FINAL | Elliott Hickey

Elliot’s piece is also very well thought out with great zooms, pauses and splits throughout.

10 – Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Anniversary | OfficialNerdCubed

Another extremely well put together clip with a lot of evident effort from some Official Nerds.

SPECIAL COMMENDATION / Scott Pilgrim vs. The World One Year Anniversary Tribute | MikeKarv

I have to give Mike Karv some goodies too for the insane amount of rendering in this clip. I don’t know how long it took but it is extraordinary.

And that’s not all

Allow me to have a roll call of some people who made a herculean effort too. Click any of these following names to see some other amazing work.

Bryan Cantwell deserves a shout out for doing three different entries, my favourite being his take on Scott Pilgrim & Spaced.

There was absolute mind melting visual insanity from Notti Rox , as well as Amelia Stephensen. There was a crazy amount of multi layered effects in the work of Elena Alter , as well as Delon Villanueva and Bobby Cohen.

Special goes out to Kyle Stern who did this crazy 15 minute epic that morphs from ‘Scott Pilgrim’ into clips from ‘Fistful Of Fingers’ set to Burt Bacharach, before whizzing through ‘Shaun’, ‘Fuzz’ and ending with ‘Attack The Block’ scoring the Chaos Theatre fight.

Peter Chobits made great use of deleted scenes, Ghost Dinosaur made up a montage with 94 films crosscut with Pilgrim and Scott Pimental made an Arrested Development special with George Michael & Anne Veal out of the track.

And finally much respect to ReallyBigBat, Justin Davila, Ryanb901, Cory Musselman, Paul Blewitt, Jeff Yorkes, Daniel Yi, Freddy Franco, Edgar Cameron, Lewis Somerset, Josh Franklin, Sean Holdsworth, Vincent Rogue, The Real Film Geek and Nick Nakasu.

All of you and indeed everyone who entered did an incredible job. I feel warm and fuzzy, my eyeballs are the shape of computer screens, I am very touched and mostly, I am very impressed.

You all rock.

  • If anyone cares my youtube channel got partnered so I had to take down my entry (Number 10). I’ve re-uploaded it here. 🙂

  • anything going down yet guys? do you know?

      • I got a message from a guy at Edgar’s production company, Big Talk Productions. He said something will be on its way soon.

        • Y’all need to give Lee from Big Talk your names and addresses. And a little something will be with you soon.

          • How do we contact this lee? Thanks 😀 (he has a cool name)

            Chaos ask!

          • He’s been trying to contact you through here!

          • Really D:? I haven’t got anything. What email address has he been using?
            I didn’t even realise he was trying to contact me through here.

            Chaos feels like an idiot… out

    Thank you for this contest, it was fun!

    • I’m seeing more of you on this website than Mr Wright himself! XD

      • ahaha XD well i wouldn’t say that but i sure have been saying a lot ^_^’

    • Or maybe you are just still giddy about making the top ten, like I am.

  • Wow, amazing stuff!  I’m in shock and awe of the mad skillz on display. Lucas Lee looking at his phone and getting a message from Solid Snake totally blows my mind at how simple yet genius that cut is.

  • Christian Fanning

    Congratulations All!! What a blast huh? =) I hope Mr. Wright decides to do something else like this soon!

    Congrats to winnars~ this was fun, hope there will be more contests

  • Man, oh, man – what a pleasant surprise to wake up to this morning (still pinching myself)! With all the fantastic videos in this competition, to be named the #2 runner-up is an INCREDIBLE honor, and to say I’m flattered would be a tremendous understatement. Congratulations to Paul and everyone else who entered – amazing job all-around, and a very special thanks to Edgar for holding this contest in the first place! Taking the time to view/exhibit our work makes all the effort worthwhile, and I am beyond pleased with how things turned out. Still can’t believe it…!

    • I know exactly how you feel. Its a crazy feeling. And everything you said, I concur with.

  • Great Contest and the winners did great. Oh and even though its no big deal you spelled my youtube channel name wrong. Its The Reel Film Geek, not big deal and it doesn’t really matter. Just thought I would point it out because the names a little puny (got to love dorky film humor.)

  • I’m absolutely thrilled. Not sure what else to add. All of the videos featured are fantastic.

    Ten ideas for prizes eh? Crikey.The last competition I won was at the age of 5, for a sketch of Beethoven (the dog, not the composer) I did for a competition run by now defunct children’s clothing store Adams. I think my prize then was a pair of dungarees, so I can cross that off the list at least. Although they don’t fit any more, so…This is hard.

      Well if those dungarees are worn out, now’s the perfect time to replace them, isn’t it?

  • Chaosblare makes a good point. Just let us know how to send you our contact info.

  • Wow, I’m flattered to have even made the list, I was checking Twitter while at Paintballing and got quite loud for a few moments.

    Is is cheeky to ask for a letter of reccomendation for my University (it’s an editing course) over signed goodies? I’m probably not going to get the grades I need, and I’d frame it and treasure it forever!

    • wanted to say good luck getting into uni! i’m sure you’ll make it, you did a good job here 😀

      • Thanks man, I ended up doing a course for A-Levels that I was sold as a significant amount more practical filmmaking than it was, it was mostly paperwork and business plans and forms and other awful stuff which I’m not good at haha

        I’d like to say though that I completely agree with Bryan, having Edgar even have a look at my work is amazing, and it feels better than any grade I could be given

        You did an epic video man, the added effects were seriously awesome

          Glad you got through it 😀
          And i absolutely agree with Bryan as well, It was a real honour that Mr. Wright got to see our work, I mean… He’s famous and he’s seen my work!! (tried to reference scott pilgrim there, didn’t really work out XD)
          And thanks, I’m glad you like my vid 😀
          I dunno if you saw my message but i kinda went ape over your video, it’s really awesome XD

            Oh, I totally got the SPvtW reference, Chaos! Also, congrats again!

          • wow, ithought that reference was way to vague XD
            OH and thanks 😀 My parents and I were bouncing off the walls when we saw my placing XD
            You did a great job making those various musiv vids, it must’ve taken ages!!! :O

          • Bryan Cantwell

            Thanks! It did take a while, and half of it was working out the timing, but probably not as long as some of the others! My vids aren’t as complex as a lot of the winning/runnerup vids, but that’s just down to personal style, I guess. It was really interesting seeing what different people made out of the same (mostly) stuff!

          • i concur, it was so cool seeing what other people have done, so many different interpretations of one song 😀

          • Okay, screw the reccomendation letter, I got in!

          • yes!!!! congratulations man!!! 😀
            soo glad you got in, you must be so pleased 😀

  • Next competition should be make a trailer for an Edgar Wright film!

    • I would enjoy that!  I’ve been slowly working on a Leon: The Professional spec trailer.  But I think I’m going to scrap it and start over.

  • Peter Chobits

    Edgar, thanks for the shout out!  And maybe it’s a thing of mine, but here’s a fake opening credit sequence I made last year for Hot Fuzz using deleted sequences from the dvd.  Edgar graciously listed it on his Twitter but for those who didn’t watch it, here it is.

    • ლ(ಠ益ಠლ why have i never seen this before

  • Well it was fun 😀

  • Bryan Cantwell

    Major congrats to Paul & the rest of the winners!

    Like a few others have said, just having Edgar watch my videos is the real prize here, and since I’m just a camera op playing editor I’m very happy with the outcome! I would have loved to have made the Runner’s Up list, but such is life. 🙂 I’m  happy to have been a part of this, and with soooooo many amazingly creative entries, to have earned my very own shout out is awesome!

    One last thanks to Edgar Wright for being an inspiration to us all, thank you for everything!!

  • I watched as many of the entries that I could and seeing my name up there just made my year. Congrats to the other winners, and to all the other contestants. We can all say we have had our work viewed by a famous filmmaker.

    • Don’t feel down about it man, Edgar still saw you’re work and that’s a prize in it’s own and  as he said it was hard to choose so his decision no to place yours must’ve been a hard one. Anywho I don’t think this will be the last scott pilgrim competition 😀

If i work up the courage to drive through the nasty, congested, traffic hell that is San Francisco; and if i dont have too much work for school, hopefully i’ll see you at the Castro theatre.

  • Josh Franklin

    Congrats to the top 10, and a thank you to Edgar Wright. I am glad to have participated, and hope the opportunity of another editing competition arises again. Thanks again Edgar Wright for allowing everyone a chance to hone there skills with professional material.
