Good idea there ^_^
Anyway, I didn't even go to the contest. We were in the massive mob in the evening and we left around nine when we thought a fight was going to break out and somepeople next to us tried to take down a sign and the place.
We didn't know about the 8 AM thing, and had to leave early sunday.
I did attend the Masq (Lucky story..I'll post at the AX board about it) so at least I saw the finalists.
The best experience was the AMV panel. All four of those creators had inspired me to create AMVs and it was wonderful to hear them talk about stuff. Everyone was nice (I was the girl in the front dressed as Subaru from Tokyo Babylon)
But the worst experience was trying to get my AMV tickets. My name wasn't on the list. I had the confirmation email and everything.
Name not on list means video disqualified.
NO ONE HAD NOTIFIED ME OR KAHMELON THAT OUR VIDEOS HAD BEEN DISQUALIFIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In fact, we got the e-mail saying our videos had not been disqualified.
After some arguing, we got our tickets. then the massive mob. I have a pic of the massive mob.
AX will be getting an angry letter from me.
