Through it's massive ups and downs, AX has always been a yearly tradition for me (except in 2009) and this year in particular will be special for the following reasons:
- Finally got back into the AMV Contest after 5 years (with 2 older VG Project videos, but they've never been in any competitions other than the VG Project showings, so it's still fair game :P)
- I'll be the main AMV
Iron Chef competitor this year and I get to choose one of the judges to compete against. I haven't watched any of the sources, but I'm confident enough to improvise everything
- I'll be unveiling a SUPER MEGA AWESOME surprise after the AMV Chef is over. You really don't wanna miss it!
Note: I hate carrying stuff, so all I'm gonna have on me is my Nintendo 3DS and a printed out schedule in my pocket.
This is mostly for radical_yue, kisanzi, and niotex, so here's my tentative AX2011 schedule:
Thursday, June 30
Afternoon: Pick up Matt and Yue from LAX. Get settled in hotel.
Evening: Pick up Yue's brother.
7:00 PM - AMV Creator Dinner at Little Tokyo: I hope everyone gets along and plays nice. :D
Anytime after that: booze
Friday, July 1
10:30AM - 11:30AM: Toshio Furukawa Panel: The Japanese voice of PICCOLO!!! It was AWESOME meeting Ryo Horikawa at AX2005 and I missed Yamcha's seiyuu at AX2006 due to the long lines. I don't think I'll be getting any autographs since I don't wanna carry stuff like I mentioned above, plus I'm not 100% sure I'll be getting up early, but I'll try to make it!
4:30PM - 6:00PM: AMV 101
Sony Vegas Workshop: Mostly to pick up our amv WRISTBANDS (not tickets) for the contest. Sadly, after last year, I can't say Brad DeMoss will be Brad DeMoss and Nic will be Nic anymore, so I hope Yue comes on board to help with the panel.
6:45PM - 7:45PM: FUNimation Industry Panel: I only want to hear the announcement about a certain box that has movies in it. Possibly pertaining to Dragons.
9:00PM - 12:00AM: AMV Contest: Castor RETURNS TO THE BATTLEFIELD!!!
12:00AM - whenever: booze
Saturday, July 2
Before 3PM: booze. Most likely provided by Matt.
3:00PM - 7:00PM: AMV
Iron Chef: This year, I was chosen as the main competitor and I have very good reasons to battle each of the judges (Rider, Matt, Nighthawk, and Wired Knight), but who will I choose? :o I will also unveil my AWESOME SURPRISE after the actual editing part is over. Don't miss it!
9:15PM - 10:15PM: Mega64 Panel: I'm so happy that it won't coincide with the AMV Chef this time and I'm really looking forward to going!
10:00PM - 12:00AM: Nic's AMV Showing/Exposition: After God knows how long, AX has finally gotten a damn timeslot for a normal AMV showcase. I'm most likely going to miss the start because of the Mega64 panel, but I should make it for the end.
Sunday, July 3
4:30PM - 7:30PM: AMV Contest Reshow and Awards: I'm broke and need money.
(Maybe) 10:30PM - 11:30PM: Cosplay Comedian Joe's AMV Hour: I have no idea who he is or have seen his videos and his amv.org profile is here. It's kind late, so I'm not 100% sure I'll go.
Monday, July 4
Take everyone to the airport and go home.
Unlike past years, it looks like I have plenty to do with more than enough time for the dealers room as well.
I'm also gonna post another big AMV related announcement on July 4th most likely before I leave AX, so don't miss it!
