Yes, I stole this idea entirely from Sakuracon but it seemed really popular and like a really good idea:
Basically the AMV viewing room would be shanghaied a few times over the course of the weekend for a popular creator who attends our convention (ie TCL, rollthestampede, etc) to show off some of their work and Q+A with the audience. I think we have a lot of really awesome creators here and they have genuine fans, as well as people who are just interested in how they work, and we could get a number of good panels out of this.
Similarly, I know that Sakuracon also had a "Creator Panel" where the different spotlight people did an hour or so of Q+A, which I also thought went nicely.
Is anybody else interested in this idea? Should people other than our two or three really big name creators be allowed to have spotlights? If so, does anybody have suggestions on who/how we decide who is eligible?
