I'll send you both Scott's and Jeff's e-mails in a PM so you can send it to them. Just let them know that you're one of the creators on AMVS5 and this is the presented logo.

I would suggest toning down the red just a bit though. It's exceptionally bright and countering the yellow text. The warmest colors always pull to the front, so see if you can cool it down a bit by adding some gray. Basically desaturating it just a bit.
Done & done

I can't help but to think the salad ended up looking a bit like holly... but whatever, out of my hands now.

Well you did a good job. Not only am I out of practice in anything logo-like, I just wasn't feeling it this week. A lot's been happening for me, so nice work pulling together something so quickly.

As for the meeting time, let's make sure we know who's coming, shall we?

9:00 PM THURSDAY NIGHT, HARD ROCK CAFE

Confirmed so far are myself, Deuce, and moonbunnychan for the new time.

The Hard Rock is apparently open until 2 AM, so that should do nicely for us. I don't plan on being up that late myself, but that leaves the possibility open ^^

Everyone who can meet up, please confirm that you know 9:00 PM on Thursday is the new time and you're okay with it. If not, let us know and we'll see if we can adjust.

Did we want to try and meet up again for those who can't come that night? If so, who can't join us and when would be a good time? We could potentially meet after the fanparodies, but that's 1 AM. There's also the Sunday Morning or Sunday Afternoon potential. My flight isn't until 6, so I have until around 4.

I'm gonna try my best to make it. |:>
Depending on what time he actually gets there, as he is notorious for not showing up till 1 or 2 am, I'll have Otakujop with me too, who made two of the clips.


If nothing else, I'm staying Sunday night in Baltimore, so I'll most definitely be around all day Sunday.

Well, Hard Rock is your idea, so I hope you can make it ^^ At the very least, please try to show up for a bit. We don't even have to do dinner as far as I'm concerned. And if you're doing stuff that night, hell if you don't mind a couple others, myself and my friends have nothing particular we want to do. We just hang out during Thursday night usually. I'd much rather spend it with more people and have some fun. Dinner was just a unifying effort to pull that off. What do you think? Still think you can actually make it, or should we try and adjust plans? I can't tell who will be showing up anymore. Miko's not stopped by in a while, and I can't remember who is not coming Thursday.

I'll be there, barring some sort of sudden room mate emergency or something. At last count I think I have something like 8-9 people rooming with me. Two are riding with me and the rest showing up god knows when.

You definitely win on the people front...

I think the easiest thing for us to do is just trade cell phone numbers through PM. Not necessarily the best choice since we'll all be roaming, but as a last resort, I think it would be appropriate.

What do you think about PMing our number and a picture to each other so we're recognizable?

Does anyone know when the Otakon schedule will be out? I'd feel more secure in trying to arrange non-Thursday time to meet if I could see that.

In case any of you are interested.

http://www.ffdistantworlds.com/

Just north of Otakon on Saturday is a Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert. Myself and a couple friends are going. It's at 7:30 on Saturday, so my hope is it will last a couple hours and I'll make it back for Saturday Fan Parodies. If I'm a little late, that won't be too bad. Thankfully AMVS is on Friday, so I won't miss that, but this was a unique opportunity. I figured I'd mention it to those who aren't aware it's happening. The 38 dollar tickets seem sold out, I got them for 48.

Scott says he has a basic schedule that they don't want to leak until it's final. But he says he could let us know, because apparently he wants to arrange a meeting between creators as well.

Perhaps would could combine ours with his and just have a giant get-together. Although I'm all for two meetings.

Due to the concert though, my Saturday night is booked with that and the Fanparodies.

We have some time, I'll get in contact with Scott and discuss who's available when and see what we can come up with. Anything in particular you don't want to miss? Thursday night really is the only time to guarantee we won't miss anything, hence why I keep pushing for it, since I don't want to miss anything either ^^

There really isn't much that I can't miss (the salad, 1 showing of the AMV contest), but I'd like to discuss it with the other people I'll be with. As far as I can tell the panels don't have descriptions up yet either, so there's not much to judge on (Anime's Craziest Deaths sounds like it could be amusing).

But I absolutely can't make Thur, my friend who is driving is working a full day on Thursday in Boston so we won't be in until late.

Scott mentioned the creator get together when I emailed the graphic to him, and if it happens I plan on going, but its generally easier to meet people in smaller groups.

I agree. I suggested to him potentially Friday or Saturday Afternoon, like a lunch or linner so that we can meet somewhere and not cut into any of the main events that start happening generally around 5. I still want to meet whomever for Thursday if possible, but I also don't want to go to three dinners really. That's money that will go to the purchase of a figure :D

I tend to spend my time at conventions mostly wandering around, socializing, and occasionally popping into whatever I walk by. The only things I know for a fact I'm going to are the AMV contest, which I assume will have a showing on Friday, and Peter Beagle's Q&A/Last Unicorn showing, which I found out via his newsletter is supposed to be Sunday.

It seems Distant Worlds has finally wised up. They do a DC area show every year, and I always missed it because they did it the exact same weekend as Otakon...which, you know, pretty much their entire audience was in Maryland for the weekend, since it's only a little over an hour from DC to Baltimore. This year they did it here last week and the Baltimore show during Otakon.


I desperately hope the heat wave we're having breaks though. 100+ degrees for Otakon would be no fun at all.

It's a good thing I've trained for 7 years in Arizona then. 120 degree sandstorms will prep you for quite a bit of varying weather 8-)

...and the hell? Is this Last Unicorn showing? Seriously? I mean... I guess... it kinda... wut? Does not compute. Explain. And for those of us in the not-know... I assume Peter Beagle is... important to it ^^

Oh, and you left out a certain something you know for a fact you won't be missing ^^ Ya know, a certain premiere, happening on Friday that had a little sum'm sum'm to do with you? :D

Peter Beagle wrote the book it was based on and the screenplay for the movie version. The movie it's self was both an American and Japanese co-production and most of the animators on it went on to form Studio Ghibli. It's one of my absolute favorite books ever and the movie version was my gateway drug into fantasy at a VERY young age (and I guess also anime although I didn't know it till years later).
