FRIDAY NIGHT: 8PM - Hotel Restaurant - AMV Editors' Dinner Meet-up.
(exact name & location within TBD after I visit the hotel one more time & make arrangements... )
Just an informal get-together and maybe a small projector w/ sound. Order off the menu & go from there.
AMV Editors (and their parents / guardians for young editors) welcome.
It's great to meet all of you, who make this event possible.
10AM - Panel 1 - Iron Chef Check-In. This is where Iron chef competitors pick up their packs, and where we reveal and explain the SECRET INGREDIENT.
(I believe we should be able to have a LOT of fun with this year's ingredients!)
3:30 PM to 7PM - MAIN EVENTS
This is IT! - the AMV Pre-show (30min) the Contest (estimated: 1hr 45min) and the Show (60min.)
Ballot counting starts after the contest and we usually have results within a few hours afterward.
11PM - 12:30AM - Panel 1 - AMV Creator Spotlight Slot #1 (Who wants to go first!?!)
This is an OFF-HOURS slot, ID required, etc, and I am holding this one open for any creator or studio who feels they need to (or intend to) focus on any sort of 18+ material. There is a 1AM panel following in that room, so there's room for a little extra overflow.
NOON - 1:30 - Workshop - AMV Creator's Panel. [SEE BELOW]
2PM - 3:30PM - Workshop - AMV Creator Spotlight Slot #2. The second slot focusing on one accomplished AMV editor or studio.
However, this slot is 'prime time daylight' and so content should remain within PG13.
9PM - 10PM - Viewing #2 - AMV Iron Chef contest.
Last years entries were a BLAST, and I look forward to even more fun surprises this year!
10PM - till Guy Collapses - Viewing #2 - Off hours AMVs followed by general fare, some contest overflows or runner-ups, and a spicier selection of this year's crop of Russian Invasions
.** This is an audience-driven event, and I also dip into a set of 'Best of' directories based on audience interest.
** Hint: "Скачать" means "Download."
8AM - 9:30AM - Panel 2 - AMV Contest Highlights & Overflow. Generally I begin with the category winners and other top vote-getters. (We won't know these until we will have seen the balloting) After that there can be room for works that the judges did not select, but we can throw them at the audience and see how they play. This slot also devolves into an audience-driven, call-for-'em type of show. Also a warm-up for "Murder of Raven" special AMV presentation following!
9:30AM - 11AM: Special Creator Presentation by "Murder of Raven" - Take it away!
3:30PM - 5PM Main Events - Closing Ceremonies
Category winners announced, and the AMV Contest Opener and the Best of Show winner will be shown.
TUESDAY: Start planning for the 2011 contest, of course!!
