MomoCon 2017: Events & Editors' Dinner

Postby kireblue » Wed Jan 11, 2017 3:04 am

Hey Everyone. I'm officially starting the thread for the MomoCon 2017 AMV Editor's dinner. Like last year, it is expected to be held at the Stats Sports Bar located about 2 blocks from the convention in downtown Atlanta. Its a great location, the price of the food is reasonable, and has something on the menu for everyone for everyone. Please respond here is you'll be in attendance |:>

I would also like to get a interest gauge for a "Editors' Social" that we could potentially have at MomoCon this year in addition to the "Editor's Dinner". The social would take place in a MomoCon suite at the Omni hotel on Thursday evening, and we'll provide games, free food, refreshments, and alcohol (for those over 21) :beer:

Reservation Information
AMV Social: Thursday May 25th, 2016 @ 7pm EST
AMV Dinner: Friday May 26th, 2016 @ 8:30pm EST
Location: Stats Sports Bar - 300 Marietta St, Atlanta, GA 30313

*Note: The restaurant has informed me that for very large groups, they are unable to split the bill separately for each individual person. But to compromise, they are able to split the bill by tables. So with this in mind, it is highly encouraged for everyone to bring cash to pay for what they order. Judging by the prices on their menu, $15-20 should be more than enough to cover any of the meals and a tip.

Confirmed:
1. Kireblue
2. MycathatesyouAMV
3. Xophilarus (maybe)
4. Shin (maybe)
5. SerenityAMV
6. jingoro
7. Akyrosansem (maybe)

Events & Panels

AMV Workshop & Editor's Den
Throughout the entire weekend, MomoCon will have a "Editor's Den" available for use in the AMV room. This area will be complete with multiple editing computers, charging stations, and a lounge area available to editors. And once again, we'll be hosting a "AMV Workshop" where attendees can sit down with editors for 1-on-1 help with their videos. We're always looking for editors with different styles and specialties, so if you're interested in helping during the workshop, please contact me.

AMV Arena + Game Shows
AMV Arena is MomoCon's Iron Chef competition where participants edit for 2 hours with pre-selected footage that match the current theme of the convention (High Fantasy). We allow up to 5 editors to compete at a time, and the winner is decided by our panel of judges and specially selected audience members. A playlist of last year's videos can be found here. If you're interested in competing against the current champion SeanPNG, pleas contact me (the sooner the better).

I am gonna list me and Shin as solid "Maybes". A lot of it depends on when I get a job, and how funding and stuff looks after that.

I guess that we aren't required to have the dinner on Thursday. AMV arena is scheduled to end at 8:30 on Friday, so that is an option. I guess that it's just tradition to typically have the dinner on the first day of the con. But if people prefer the 2nd day, I can possibly adjust the AMV room schedule to accommodate that.

Due to my wife's work she can never make Thursday night...

hmmm. 7pm might actually be a little early to start the social. I'm open to starting it at a later time if people want.
