AMV Spotlight: Fate Matrix and Fate Network

When crafting up an AMV, you have two choices. You can either create an AMV based on a single anime, or you can make one based on a compilation of multiple animus. This latter option is, by far, the hardest way to make an AMV. Think about it: if you’re basing a video on a […]

Cool Find: The Shazam App tells you what music you’re listening to

One of my favorite events at any anime convention I go to is the AMV contest, where creators cut together videos consisting of their favorite anime set to music. Usually the videos try and convey some sort of story, and are generally categorized into various themes (drama, comedy, action, etc.). Often, AMV contests are a […]

FanimeCon 2012 AMV Contest Finalists and Winners (Updated)

OK, it appears as though the AMVs that were shown at this year’s FanimeCon have started hitting the org, so I figure now’s as good a time as any to post about it…

Overall there were some amazing videos this year, and aside from the usual technical glitches (c’mon people, just burn a frakkin’ DVD […]

FanimeCon 2011 Day 1 Report

Day 1 of FanimeCon has drawn to a close. Unfortunately this day was spent mostly getting things set up logistically speaking – laying in supplies, picking up badges, etc. Our actual at-con time consisted mostly of watching the excellent Fanime Music Video (AMV) contest. (More on that later.)

Before we go any further, I’d like […]

Anime Los Angeles Day 3 Report

First things first: if you attended either of our workshops (podcasting and photography) and are looking for the notes pages for these, here they are: Photography notes, Podcasting notes.

Day 3 – the final day – of Anime LA was pretty low key. In fact I didn’t even make it to any panels. Most […]

Anime Los Angeles Day 2 Report (Updated)

Well, Day 2 of Anime Los Angeles has ended.  There were definitely more people here today than yesterday.  I still could not begin to hazard a guess as to how many.  Last year’s Anime LA was capped at 3200 and I’d say that there were at least that many people here today.  Perhaps more.


Anime Los Angeles Day 1 Report (Updated)

Day 1 of Anime Los Angeles has drawn to a close.  Unfortunately, as luck (and Murphy) would have it, we spent most of the morning and mid afternoon on the road.  We barely got here in time for our first of two panels (but fortunately, we made it – barely).  The panel went well, […]

A Winner is You! Behold the Anime LA 2010 AMV and Masquerade Winners

Behold, for here are the winners in the various divisions of both the Masquerade and AMV contests at Anime LA 2010. Congratulations goes out to everybody who participated in both contests – all entries this year were truly awesome.


Back from Anime LA

I’m back from Anime LA, and so far (knock on wood) I’ve managed to avoid the dreaded Convention Sickness. Keep your fingers crossed…

I”ll try and schedule a recording session with The Gang soon to record our A-LA recap podcast. Look for that in the next week or two. In the meantime, here are my […]

How not to run an AMV competition screening

Day 1 of Anime Los Angeles has officially drawn to a close. Due to various factors including my travel schedule (I didn’t actually arrive on-site until close to 2:30 this afternoon) and my body’s need for a sudden unscheduled nap (remember what I said about human frailties…) I only made it to one panel today, […]
