Sakura-Con 2009 AMV Room!!

Postby Vlad G Pohnert » Fri Dec 12, 2008 1:17 am

I can finally announce that the AMV room will not only be back, but be MUCH bigger then last year (like about 2-1/2 times the size with a seating capacity of about 850)!!!! Not only are we excited, but we're working on a bunch of really cool stuff to make it even better then ever...

Some of the returning AMV events will be the ever so popular Comedy Block and AMV Gameshow and more.

ALSO, the Creators Spotlight panels will be back so if any AMV creators that are planning on attending Sakura-Con want a 15-20 minute slot to show and introduce some of thier AMV works, let me know by PMing me so we can plan out how many we need.

I'll be there Vlad :D

You can count on me for the Creator's Spotlight. I sent you a PM on the Sakura Con message board, but I'll send one here too so you can keep track.

If you want to get an idea of the size of the room
http://sakuracon.org/location/SC2009_WS ... alMaps.pdf (the map went live today)
Last year 6A+6B+6C was the Main Events room, and seated roughly 3000, AMV Theater is 6A and seats roughly 850

http://www.animehackers.com/temp/AMV%20 ... etup-1.jpg
thats technically 6B and 6C but if you look at the size of the area between the vertical black line on the right side and the back wall, that is roughly how large the AMV theater will be

Bigger room? NICE!!!

I loved the spotlights last year.

Castor Troy:
20 minutes is pretty easy when you consider that you will not only talk but also show videos, plus you've made some really cool videos so tons of people will probably show up. Heck, I wouldn't mind watching 20 straight minutes of your work, who needs the talk :lol: so I wouldn't worry about the spotlight time.
This is how I see things:
A bad AMV makes it look easy
A good AMV makes it look fun
A great AMV makes it look hard
However, the best AMVs make it look impossible

Indeed! The room will take some getting use to, but the programming we have planned should provide to be a lot of fun and very enteriaining to the fans :D Considering two years ago the AMV room only held 90, last year 275, This is is quite a step up..

I haven't been able to come and talk during my spotlight the past years. Then again, would you really want me to? "Yea, I did this baby while chain-chugging Dr. Pepper and eating Swiss Rolls in which I added Pixy Stix to the filling. All I could think of was Dante from Clerks and Light Yagami should totally team up and they would so do it to techno."

Hopefully this year I can make it, I should be able to since I'm work-free!
