AnimeEXPO 2013 - ANNOUNCING THE AMV ROOM!

Postby Vlad G Pohnert » Thu Apr 11, 2013 11:04 pm

Hi All,

Yes indeed, it is now official (well, the official announcement comes tomorrow), but Troy gave me the go ahead to announce it here first!

This year we are happy to announce an ALL WEEKEND LONG dedicated AMV Room at AnimeExpo! Yes indeed, AMV programming all 4 days long and not just one day as last year has come to the world's largest Anime Con!

We have a lot of great and fun stuff planned and we’ll be bringing a lot of awesome and cool new programming interactive concepts to AnimeExpo as well as returning AX AMV favorites like:

- AMV Creator Panels
- AMV Creator Spotlights (15 minute blocks giving local creators the opportunity to highlight some of their works live!)
- Return of AMV Chief!
- AMV Hell 6.66
- AMV Mortal Combat Ver. 2.0! (a even more funner version then the one done last year)
- AMV Gameshow (An original concept gameshow built around AMVs)
- History of AMVs (a journey through key videos in the history of AMV Creation including the first recorded AMV)

AND MUCH MORE!

keep an eye on this thread for more information and happenings!

Details, details... :roll:

But yeah, a lot of hard work and negotiatin' went into making this happen. The room is a bit on the small side at about 300 seats, but it's a great start, and I'm looking forward to the energy of a constantly packed room. Awesomeness is assured. :)

Need any panelists?
Have no idea if it's even feasible at this point, but I've been considering coming out >_>

Will have more information on that within the next few days. However expect to see Creator Spotlights and possibility of panels from others provided they will have an appeal and be within the scope of the room.

Ok, here is some more information that involves editors for the Room. We will be doing what I've done at many of the other AMV Rooms I run that has proven to be a HUGE success and that is "Creator Spotlights”

What is a Creator Spotlight?
These are 15 minute slots of time (usually in a block of 2 hours of so) that Creators can show some of their words and say a few words about each. Basically, you can show anything so long as it's no more than PG-13 and AMV related.

How do you get a Spotlight?
Right now I would like to see who would be interested in a spotlight. Once I get a rough idea if interest, then we would look at scheduling a bock (or two) of time on different days and send those interested all the slot times available that editors can pick their preferred and backups. Then they would be assigned to editors and all they would need to do is show up 15 minutes prior.

What is needed?
Once a slot would be assigned, we would need the videos you plan to show either uploaded to us before the con, or handed to us on a thumb drive or Data disc at least “X” hours prior to the block (we would let you know when that would be) so we can test and preview your videos to ensure they play and are appropriate.

That's pretty much it, basically it's a chance for creators to introduce themselves and talk in person and show some of their work. This does not get you a free pass or anythign, but a chance to show your stuff I find these are attended quite well so you will get reasonable exposure!
