After conquering a most annoying bug in my encoding software, I have managed to finally encode the Battle of the Bands from Anime Expo this year.
If you like what you see (or not) don't be afraid to
tell me I suck on the forums. CLOSED
Well, taking a break from writing reports and doing stuff from the conventions, I've gone ahead and written up a review of the live action Speed Racer movie; and a movie I'd recommend all anime fans go see at least once on the big screen.
As always, here's a forums thread if you want to make comments on the Speed Racer movie or the review itself. CLOSED
I don’t think I can really provide a summary for this one for a variety of reasons. Sure I could for the movie in and of itself, but considering the movie is such a tribute to the rich history of this story, I’m thinking I should probably take some time out to delve into that in the review proper before talking about the movie itself.
Well folks, it's finally here: The 2008 Fanime Masquerade...the first of the Fanime vids I've taken that I'm actually happy with to be honest, heh. This year's theme was song and dance, so you're in for a real treat if you weren't there to see it.
Stop by the forums and tell us what you think! CLOSED
Well, here we are in the second of the many videos I have to post. This one is the Anime Central 2008 Masquerade...it's a bit big having been recorded in full HD, but it's pretty good none the less. Also, all ACEN vids will be given to the ACEN press staff at full resolution for the convention video, so look forward to that by checking the ACEN website.
More to come as it happens.
Don't be afraid to visit the forums and post your thoughts on the videos and pics to be taken. CLOSED
Alas, the Thanksgiving vacation has come and gone. With it, I find myself filled with turkey and other things. And so I return from the land of no internet to find some great news. The entirety of the AX Idol competition for this year (minus the Wendee Lee acceptance speech) has been uploaded to Youtube. You can find that here.
Thanks be to godsanchez of the forums for his time and work.
And following right along with the Idol contest we have the Cosplay Parts 1 and Parts 2...including in Part 2 the Pirate vs Ninja half time show. I may well make another torrent for that alone if demand is high enough.
As before, stop by the boards to share your experience at anime expo or to comment on it in general. CLOSED
Finally, the downloadable version of the Anime Expo 2007 Idol competition is now online! For those that are wondering, it's encoded in x264 video format with MP3 audio. I wanted to use OGG, but that was becoming too problematic to get working properly.
