Alright, this thread has been dead for a while so I'm going to post some things in hopes of riling up a response:
Item 1: I think I'm going to submit a generic "AMV Showcase and Q&A" with the description saying something to the effect of "Come meet Kcon AMV creators, ask them about their work and creative process, and maybe even get exclusive first glimpses of unreleased works!" with the hope that (a) some other creators get on board at some point (TCL? Turtles? Can I count on you guys to be there?), perhaps even just dropping by unannounced mid-panel with a flash-drive of some work they'd like to share and (b) that maybe somebody other than me is willing to show whatever they are working on around that time to a panel.
Item 2: I think the chances of getting a brand new AMV contest off the ground in the months before this year's kumoricon are... slim to say the least. But if nobody including Guy is interested in running it, I really do think having a Tekkoshokon-style "mature contest" (perhaps with a similar rule wherein works that are deemed good but too R-rated by the judges are slid into it) is an excellent idea and I'd be willing to devote some time and energy into running one, although I'm certain I'm not the most qualified candidate. My hope would be that we could run a whole contest of things that were just R-rated and then maybe at the end have a special category for H-stuff (>__> although I am not exactly thrilled at the idea of having to pick through H submissions). If there is a sufficient level of interest and/or Guy wants to pick this up and make it official maybe we could get it off the ground this year, but he'd definitely have a better idea than me.
Item 3: I don't want to step on anyone's toes and I can think of a few people (TCL and Guy for example) who would be more qualified, but if there's interest in a "Intro to Making AMVs" panel but nobody wants to run it, I'd be willing to take on that too. I like running panels but I definitely don't want people to think I'm trying to dominate Kcon's AMV related panels!
Well, any thoughts? I'd hate to wait too long and then not have any AMV panels at all!
