Hello all. For AnimeUSA (http://www.animeusa.org
) I will be hosting The Weakeast Link: Otaku Edition. It will be run in the same style as the popular tv show of the same name, and while there will plenty of anime related questions, a large majority of the questions will be AMV related. Such questions will cover all areas of AMV fandom, including technical questions, questions about videos, questions about creators, and questions about cons that run AMV contests.
For this "show" to be a success, I will need 9 contestants. Normally, game shows pull people out of the audience, but for this show to work right, I will need exactly nine people. If I cast it live, I run the risk of not getting enough volunteers. Because of that, I am opening up pre-registration to be a contestant. The requirements to get on the show are simple. The only pre-requisite is that you have to be at AnimeUSA, and you have to attend the show (no matter what we're scheduled against) and be there 15 minutes before it starts for briefing and so we can start on time.
To apply, simply send me an email (VicBond007@AOL.com
) with your name, age, your .org nickname or whatever else you want to be identified by (studio and whatnot. Think of being on the show as free advertising ^.~) and a little biography about yourself so I (the host) can chew out you (the contestants) in between rounds ^.~ If I get 9 or less applicants, than your acceptance is guarenteed. However, if I get more than 9 applicants (I hope I do!) then your acceptance will be based on how interesting your bio is. The more interesting the contestant, the more interesting the show is, so don't hold back! Finalists will be notified on or around September 15th, so dont' delay!
And yes, there will be a prize for the lucky person who makes it through to the end. The rest, well, you've seen the show ^.~
Good luck to all!
