How many people are planning on going to day 0?
« on: April 17, 2011, 03:26:12 PM »

I'm a little bit curious, since I might be arranging to show a movie or two for the people there.

I'm planning on going to pick up my badge and just check out the area. It's my first time at Fanime so I think I'll need an early head's up so I can get a feel for the place. ^^;

Haha I was hoping it would. Is there typically going to be a lot of people at Day 0?

I'll be as close to the front of the pre-reg line as possible, as I do every year.

Yay Day Zero!

Of all the years since 1994 that I've been going to Fanime, I had no idea there was a Day Zero, officially or not.

Do events actually happen during this time? I woulda gotten a hotel room for an extra day if I knew this was going on. :(

Officially, Day 0 is the day where the staff finalize their set ups and test all equipment (some of this starts before Day 0). Some departments that have finalized and finished testing their set up will open up and operate on a non-set schedule (for example, Stage Zero/Video Rooms might show some random videos).

For staff: it's a day to finish setting up and tweak layouts/equipment configurations without thousands of people around.
For attendees: it's a day to watch us set up and can be a cool way to see what the convention center is like with the equipment and a lot less people.
For both: it's a relaxing day before the convention gears up. :)

Some staffers (including myself) will be there starting on Day -1. :P

Some even day -2 :)
Great, now I'll have to show up on day -3!

It's not a competition; I am just better at arriving to FanimeCon early... or something.

This will be my 3rd Day Zero visit, and it's always nice to know you can rest easy for Friday when you have your badge beforehand :)

I cannot say which movie it would be. It will be a good movie though.

What time does the line usually start? About 6 hours before reg opens?
