I pledge allegiance to the works of Anime, and to the mighty computers which show it, one community under Zarxrax, indivisible unless we disagree on contest rules, with Sony Vegas and Adobe for all.

In case anyone doesn't know, the source of Gotenks' parody came from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGZbJlpsohc .

So. Epic.

*_* Please do! You would be my hero.

A random suggestion for this year or next-- but I always find it hard to identify all the AMV editors at the con (besides maybe randomly sitting next to one in those super special awesome seats during the AMV contest). So, perhaps we should all wear some identifying clothing, pin, hair piece, face paint, symbol....something, to say we serve the Editing King. :o

Too bad it's so close to Otakon.
I'd have submitted this for the intro.
Nothing flashy or fancy but it gets to the point.

You mean, like the official Org badge? I would always wear mine to Otakon, with my smiling Kaoru avatar, until I stopped doing it last year (I believe), because no one else was doing it and it didn't seem right to wear it while in cosplay. Actually, even in 2003 and 2004 I was the only one doing it at Otakon.

(WHY can't I find the actual page on the site that explains the badge?)

I'll be donning the "I'm cool with One-Winged Angel Productions" badge :P (if that's how friend badges go as I only have my finalist badge from last year :lol: ).

Friday...

* AMV Overflow - 12:00PM - 2:00PM, Video1.
* AMV Contest - 5:00PM - 7:30 PM, Video1.
* Friday Night Fan Parodies - 10:00PM - 1:00AM, Video4.
Yay for AMV contest 1st showing in the late afternoon; boo for the 2nd half of it conflicting with the FUNimation industry panel. It's all good, 'cause I'll catch the whole thing on Saturday.

Also yay for Overflow on Friday. Our collective works will not go unnoticed. :)

You know...wishful thinking here, but there may be just enough time to count ballots from this viewing block to actually announce at Iron Editor...maybe...

Granted, though, a lot of people mull over their decisions and in the past there was a ballot box placed at the info table. Having a decision deadline within two hours after the Saturday showing seems a bit off for me...

Also, the 11:30PM end time for IE...seems a bit, erm, late...I wonder...
On top of that, Iron Editor conflicts (the last hour of it, anyway) with Mike & Meri's "Ten Things You Didn't Know about Dragon Ball" panel, not to mention a late LATE exit at the end of Iron Editor puts the kibosh on doing the usual post-IE dinner....

Also, I didn't see a general AMV panel in the schedule; I guess no one took the initiative to submit such panel to Otakon (again) this year?

You might want to let them know that over in the Otakon AMVers' dinner thread in the Anime Conventions board. I don't believe that little snag has been brought up yet.

Looks like. All I see is Advisor's Ten Funniest AMVs of All Time, and a late-night AMV Hell 5 panel (presumably run by SSGWNBTD?).

We really should get organized enough to work something out for next year, even if it's just four AMVers and a host taking whatever questions the audience throws out (like in 2008 and 2004 and so on).

I submitted applications for AMV workshops last year but got denied. So... I'd be up for helping put together something next year. Fo' shiz.

Also, we could do a pre-IE meetup...

I'll print one out and wear it to the con. I also always wear a A-M-V.org button on my bookbag.

hope to see you during the convention. (especially since it seems that New York Anime Fest won't be having a AMV contest this year.)
