I've done it at Anime Evolution and Sakura-Con for the past 5 years now and this year at Anime North... it actually works real well as you get to see different syles of videos in a short amount of time, hence it will now be done at AWA :wink:

I'll have a signup post and time slots avaiable near the end of the month... Basically this will not be considered a "Panal" but where we give creators there a 15 minute slot in exchange for showing thier work to a live audience and sayign a few words...

Yea, last year at SakuraCon (my first year there), I was the first one to show videos... i played all my serious stuff. 90% of the video shown after me were all comedy/twisted videos (/me looks at Dusten and Jennifer >:|)

Sad truth: Editors (and occasionally some regular folk) might appreciate non upbeat/action/comedy videos, but most people going to AMV related events at a con that are just normal attendees can't bother to pay attention to drama and romance for any sort of extended period no matter how good the videos are.

unfortunately, this is very true. At Momocon, I schedule time slots for every genre of AMVs, but the Drama and Romance block always bring in the least amount of people. The comedy, Action and Fun/Upbeat blocks usually bring in the most. I'd say that the technical and character profile blocks lie somewhere in between.

that is one of the reasons of havign then 15 minutes... Thenn also they are scheduled late mornign early afternoon and I have found during that time people don't mind drama as much.. In the evenings that want fun stuff

Vlad/TJ/Carl/Daric,

Any news yet on the AMV contest deadlines? We're a little over 1 month to Otakon, and traditionally, the Pro deadline has been the last week of July. So far, no dates for any of the AMV contests have been announced. I know the latest AWA staff meeting was this past Sunday, but I didn't see any action for the VAT on the staff message boards. Will there even be a Pro contest this year?

Never mind, the dates are posted on AWA's website, but so far nothing's been posted on the AMV Contest forums here.

2011 Contests and Deadlines:
Expo Contest: Friday, September 2, 2011
Pro Contest: Friday, July 29, 2011 (as usual, last week of July, which is Otakon weekend)
Masters Contest: Friday, September 9, 2011
