ACEN 2010 Convention Photos

ACEN 2010 was fun, fun fun...aside from the cold I was dealing with that is. Also there was the entire Yoshiki from X Japan punk'ing the Masquerade...which was humorous too. He was basically promoing X Japan appearing at Lolapalooza in Chicago in August and the Nissan stadium in Japan a few days later, so tell your friends!

Convention Update Triple Threat!

Hope you guys are ready for an update, because I have a whopper for you. For your viewing pleasure, I have:

The final part of the Anime Central 2009 report.

Mayhem's pics from Fanime 2009.

I've come to the conclusion I need to figure out how to get proper colors on this camcorder when those at Anime Central use those weird ass colored lights. On the other hand, it'd also be nice if I had decent software that was capable of correcting some of that in the AVCHD format.

Anime Central 2009 Report Part 1

Part 1 of the ACEN 2009 report is now available and ready for reading. This part chronicles Day 0 of the convention and the various technical issues one always has when going to an event like this. This one is a little dry reading, but it has a bit of good information in it for those that are interested.

Within the next few days I hope to have Days 1 through 3 up in incremental stages. I'm getting better at this, and I hope to have Fanime's report at least started before Anime Expo.

Maybe by next year I'll be good enough to have these reports done before the next event.

Anime Central 2009 Report

Since I had such a great time at ACEN last year, I decided to go ahead and attend this year. Like last year, I attended as a member of the Press, which enabled me to film and photograph events in ways I otherwise would not have been able to as a regular attendee. This is important when one considers how many events I've actually started filming on a regular basis at the various conventions I attend; almost all of which I've made available via bittorrent. It's irked me considerably that most of the video taken at these cons seems to disappear down a dark hole into shear nothingness, despite the number of people I see taking video…especially at the larger conventions like Anime Expo. Thankfully with the advent of Youtube and various other online video services, people are beginning to transcode and upload their videos; most famous of which is American Cosplay Paradise who has actually gone back and begun making available video from about '99 on.

ACEN 2009 Pics Are Now Available

Well, finally got the pics up. These are all the pics I took, no cuts and no comments. I’ll be removing some as I go through them and cull the ones that I don’t think I took very well, blurry ones, etc, and comments will come as I go. I figured it’d be best if I just put them up there for those that were looking forward to them now.

ACEN 2009 Pic status

Recently went to Anime Central 2009 over at fact, I just got back last night, heh. I took more pics there than I have at any of the previous conventions I went to due in no small part to the shear amount of photoshoot gatherings I took part in. It'll take me a few days to get these pics processed and up on the site, so if you received my card, I do appologize for the delay, but they will be up just as soon as I can get them color corrected, red eye removed, etc.

ACEN 2009

Anime Central 2009 will be occurring this coming weekend over at the Rosemont Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois a few miles from the Chicago International Airport. Since I had such a great time last year at that con, I'll be attending this one as well. If you happen to be a cosplayer you might see a short guy with even shorter hair, probably with a shirt proudly displaying a Decepticon symbol, running around taking pictures. Either that or a short guy in a black monk outfit. Odds are that'll be me; so if you recognize me, come up and say hi!

Hope we all have a lot of fun, and hope to see you all there!
