I forget how many badges each finalist for Otakon got last year, but I was generously offered one from a finalist, though I couldn't take it. Luckily we just walked right in and sat down. There were a lot of empty seats towards the front. I think it was because of the concert.
Otakon, you got two badges for friends... And how small do you think the main events hall is?
I don't recall the main events hall being that much smaller than other conventions, or are they using a different room as the main events hall this year?
Thanks. So you got 3 overall then? Yeah, see I'd still need more. Maybe one of them should enter a video (in a different category than me
) and hopefully everyone makes the finals. Then we'd all be good to go.
I remember it being about one half to two thirds the size of Omni's main events hall. Maybe they will open up another hall though for Katsu to make it longer. It definitely won't be getting any wider.
Yup, right on about the size issue. Main events this year is a lot smaller. The size estimate of about 1/2 to 2/3 is about right. I would lean towards the 1/2 myself. Unfortunately, preferred seating is not being utilized this year. I have been discussing with the Katsu Con staff about doing that for K16. If it pans out, man oh man, this thread has given me ideas, and I thank you all!
There will definitely be Finalist badges of awesomeness in the future!
(Although I would really prefer the awesome badges where after effects installs in your head ALONG with premiere. I'll take a side of Photoshop with that, too!)
Sorry about the seating. And yeah main events is smaller. And since our Friday screening finally has a later time attached, people will (hopefully) be coming on down, instead of waiting in the reg lines. I've already warned the Katsu staff that we may need an emergency overflow room if things get busy!
So C'MON DOWN if you're gonna be at con, and LET'S make this joint MAD MAD BUSY!!!
Finally, I'll be leaving tomorrow morning for con, so if anyone does have any questions, I won't be able to read them. HOPEFULLY my laptop can find a temporary online home while at con!
Thanks again, everyone, for everything you've done for the K15 AMV Contest! Hope to see ya down there!
Chase your dreams, don't let your dreams chase you.
