Last year, I hosted the panel "Abridging a Series," all about the creation of Abridged Series, what makes them work, and how to make one. We even ended by creating an abridged episode of the Tales of the Abyss anime.
This year, I'm hosting it again! Currently scheduled for Saturday at 4 PM. Come in and join the discussion about your favorite Abridged Series, any series you'd like to abridge, how to make them, and we'll end by abridging an anime right then and there.
Which anime? That's where you guys come in.
You see, last year, I chose Tales of the Abyss. Turns out it was licensed by Bandai. I'll be discussing the legal issues about Abridged Series at the panel, but suffice to say, even though we was within our legal rights to create a parody video, they still had it removed from YouTube. To prevent this from happening again, I'm going to chose a more recent (and thus, unlicensed) anime for us to abridge, and I'm taking suggestions. If you have any series you'd like to abridge (one that can be found easily, preferably raw, and must not be licensed by any US companies), let me know, and I'll make a poll on which one we should abridge.
So stop on by and join the abridging! You can see last year's video here: http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/category/anime/watch/v1852278369zXfg6M
