AWA VAT 2014

Postby Vlad G Pohnert » Thu May 22, 2014 11:26 pm

HI All,

Once again It's time to turn my attention to the VAT at AWA...

For anyone who plans to go, right now I looking for any programming anyone wants to contribute to the VAT.

Note that I'm looking for ideas that are preferably interactive and cool (original or will attract people to the room).

I heard about the Roast in the past. Are we doing that again this year?

As far as interactive things AMV Sing-a-longs are always a good idea.

Or another interesting idea would be AMV Idol. Except it would be like American Idol, you have people come up and sing for a group of judges while an amv plays. Just the karaoke version of the song. Some random idea I had one day but never got to try.

I'm sure Glory Questor and you may have talked about the AMV Game Show.

That's all I have for now. I'll see if I can't think of any other ideas.

Not sure if Pilk and the rest of CBR talked to you already but if they are not planning on bringing back the hour that doesn't exist I'm sure SD and myself are more then happy to take it over and entice the masses with what shouldn't be seen.

Vlad,

If we're doing a sing-along again this year at AWA, may I suggest we soft- or hard-surtitle the videos with the lyrics (i.e. show the lyrics at the top of the screen, not the bottom) and make sure there are no more than 2 lines of text at any one time. :)

I did a AMV Sing-Along block this year at AWA and it went very well. The big key is to use songs that have lent themselves to sing-along ability easily. "Be a Man" is a good choice (as is most videos based on songs from Disney musicals). Semi-annoyingly catchy pop does well too ("Gaga for Bishies", "Fullmetal's Back", "Something Fishy"). Just something to think about :)

This may seem kinda silly, but what if there was like an IC-MEP panel?

6 People
2 Teams of 3 People
20 Minutes Each

Each editor has 20 minutes to edit and get as much done as they can in their time, they get off, then the next person jumps on and gets as much done as they can, etc etc

Not sure if anything like this has been done already, I don't get out to conventions very much D=

That sounds like a fun idea. Would be a little difficult. However should be interesting to see what would come out of it.

The Video Art Track (VAT) at AWA features time set aside for Creator spotlights that are 15 minute slots within a block of time where creators have the opportunity of showing a few of their videos while providing a live introduction or some commentary.

Basically, in the 15 minute slot you can show and introduce several of your video(s) and discuss anything about them, so long as it’s kept within the time block.


SPOTLIGHT BLOCKS
The two blocks of spotlights on two different days with a total of 14 slots:

FRIDAY from 1:00 - 2:45

SLOTS available:
1:00 pm – 1:15 pm
1:15 pm - 1:30 pm
1:30 pm - 1:45 pm
1:45 pm - 2:00 pm
2:00 pm - 2:15 pm
2:15 pm - 2:30 pm
2:30 pm - 2:45 pm


SATURDAY from 11:30 am - 1:15 pm

SLOTS available:
11:30 am - 11:45 am
11:45 am - 12:00 am
12:00 am - 12:15 am
12:15 am - 12:30 am
12:30 am – 12:45 am
12:45 am - 1:00 pm
1:00 pm - 1:15 pm

If you are interested in a spotlight, please PM me and include your preferred timeslot and two alternatives by September 5, 2014 as after that date I'll assigned the slots and get the rest away on a first come first served bases until they are all gone.

Please include your real name, nickname and E-mail contact so we know who you are as well. Once we confirm your slot, I'll send further instructions on to format and other important information.

Thanks,

Play it twice and walk away. I've been telling Pilk that he needs to use a block and just walk up and go "My name is Phil, this is Albequerqe" and leave.
