Panels and Workshops / Re: Dollfie workshop
« on: December 19, 2007, 11:33:31 AM »

Panels and Workshops / Re: Parapara Workshop!

Yeah its kinda odd for guys to do Para Para since a good portion of the dances designed by Avex involve very feminine movements.  Sometimes not only would they look ridiculous for a guy to do, some they just can’t do to the way our hip sockets are made. 

I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard getting one of these going for this year.  =}  Particularly since there is already enough interest in this thread thus far to justify one.  =}

I would really like to see a panel done by the creators/voice actors of RED vs BLUE (if they'd be interested)
It'd be cool to know how they make machinima videos and such

The Rooster Teeth Crew have been to Fanime a couple of times now.  Though I think last year there was something that a few of the main guys had to do that prevented them from attending.  Hopefully they have the free time to head back this year.  They are a great group of guys.

Panels and Workshops / Yuri Panel and non-adult Yuri anime showing room

As far as getting into the showing room end of it, I would suggest posting that over in the Video Programming section for their staff to see.  Since it will probably get more attention there.

Myself and a few others would like to take on the responsibility of running the first yuri panel, if that would be alright/wanted/approved. :3

I know that previously Fanime had tried to have some Yuri content in the line up.  So we will keep you in mind.  They might have things lined up, I'm not sure yet.  @_@

there are of course rules and what not though.  You dont just beat each other senseless xD  And Amtgard is safety first so yeah.  There are no head or neck shots so as long as people arent looking to hit that it should be safe.  Plus the swords are pretty safe to hit each other with if 9 year olds play. xD

There are many issues with having an event like this.  Sadly an event like this couldn't be run on the honor system.  Not on the people that would run it, but the people who would attend it.  Since one bored person could ruin the whole fun for everyone.  This is something that i would be worried about in this situation.

The website seems kind of rushed. I'd rather have the old site/countdown up temporarily until the new site is polished. It's only like 4 months after Fanime, afterall.

I second this thought.

Im thinking of hosting an amtgard panel.  However there are only a couple things I am worried about.  First off amtgard is basically larping and show some of the basics to fighting.  And the only thing Im worried about is should I put it...will they allow people to beat each other up with foam swords?

Probably not, LARPing = good!  It has been tossed around in the past with doing a con LARP like a few other cons did in the old days.  But beating each other with whack-a-noodles would probably end bad.  ^^;;

Trying to steer this a bit back on topic...

Since I definately want to see the Masquerade Ball return, how about having more than one dancing lesson, for those of us that were running around like mad to all the of various things at that time and missed the dancing lesson? Since I could not attend, I do not know, but how were those geared? Maybe have a super basic beginner one (I mean, super basic beginner, starting from where you put your hands on your partner, how to not step on feet/costumes, and etiquette, all three of which I was totally lost on at the actual ball, as I had never really danced before), and then an intermediate level one, maybe even just a demonstartion, for people that know how to do basic dancing, but would maybe like to learn a new technique or two?

Also, how about a Masquerade skit panel/workshop? Has there been anything like this before, and would people use it? I know that I could certainly use some know-how in this area, and I am sure that there are others that could improve on skits and skit ideas and people that are discouraged from performing because of not know what to do onstage. Obviously, it probably wouldn't help for that year's Masquerade, but it can be used for future cons (others that summer, the next Fanimecon), or would that be too difficult, in that various cons have various audiences and that even the Fanime audience changes so much year to year that there is no way to have a one-size-fits-all general tips session?

I’m so for this.  @_@  I love dancing!  (Ballroom / Choreographed)

My personal view of this is that a Melty Blood “Panel” would be great.  Though Tsukihime had a brief surge of popularity Melty Blood remained relatively unknown stateside.  This was due in large part for being a doujin pc game rather than something on Consoles.  There are a few people out there that have jumped on it due to the crazy gameplay videos that are out on the net.  Id love to see something that more just explained what it is.  The characters, the story, Establish the world.  Then maybe explain the basics, button layout, HUD layout Etc.  Then maybe show some of the videos of what you CAN do with it by showing some of those crazy tourney vids.  

As far as a “Workshop” it is difficult if not impossible to have a constructive workshop on fighting games.  People’s personal setup’s are as varied as there are players.  Some, as shown above, hate the American HAPP style controls, though there are some that hate the SANWA Japanese standard.  (Ball-Top Clicky Sticks, Rounded buttons.)  I personally like a hybrid.  I use the American Laser Optic Joysticks with the tear handle but like the rounded buttons.  Not only would it be near impossible to line up game stations numerous enough to facilitate hands on demonstations for all those who attend, the level of people that complain about the joystick layout/design wouldn’t just be 2 or 3 but would probably be most of the room except for whoever brought the sticks.  

It’s a cool Idea and I’m sure that everyone will try to make SOME kind of fighting game panel happen, since it seems there is an interest for it.  Its just that for something really spectacular it really needs to be hands on, and that would prove to be rather tricky.

Keep the ideas coming everyone!

Melty Blood Workshop:  What kind of workshop are you asking?  And what format?  What standard are we talking, PC, PS2, Arcade?  Since the latter two are a little harder to pull off than the PC version.  As well as depending on the format it would be rather difficult to really pull off something, hands on.  Fighting game theories are a bit difficult when done just in words and pictures than hands on.  

Though if you have and ideas on this i'm sure myself and kava would love to know.  I know I'm a huge fan of this game and have an arcade setup in my living room.  I just am rather at a loss how to do such a panel.

Good Day Fanime Fans,

Its time to get that ball rolling early and start with some new panel suggestions!  Though we have a few things lined up already we would like your input!  So if all of you could throw out the following:

Who would you like to see return from last year?
What new things would you like to see added?
Any people you would like to see?

Get thinking!  We have about 10 months, lets get rocking!

Yoshinori Kitase or another Final Fantasy Director (Kitase did VIII)

Kitase also did VII and was a Producer on Advent Children.

Just an idea, why not VGcats? We did have Megatokyo at one point I think...FanimeCon 2004. I'm sure we can try it, if we are lucky ^^;

Video Game panels. Seriously, I think it would be awesome to have some panels that recap on E3 (Which would have happened slightly before Fanime) and/or a chance to show off some cool video game trailers. Companies I'd like to see at the video game panels:

DDR Company? Bemani I think?

People I'd LOVE to see (but is unlikely):
Nobuo Uematsu
Keiji Inafune (Creator of Megaman)
Yoshinori Kitase or another Final Fantasy Director (Kitase did VIII)

I'd love to see Matt Greenfield come down and do an ADV panel. When I saw him at JTAF a couple years ago he was really friendly and told us about a lot of cool stuff.

So yeah, Matt Greenfield doing an ADV panel.

Right now I can't think of any anime or manga people...but those are my suggestions for the moment.

An E3 review eh? An interesting idea...I mean, at one point in the E-Gaming area we did show random clips from E3 2006, most notably are a few of the new Wii games and XBox360 trailers. Now, we can do that again, but we need to explore how legal that is (from a standpoint).

We per se did have Gamers for Hire (GFH) on site, but because of the scheduling and a couple of circumstances, it was not as popular as we thought. What GFH did is a small panel that involve talking about the Video Gaming Industry and how to get into it. We can bring them back, with other possible panel ideas.

We got a year (ok 11 months) - we'll see what happens. We're all open to new ideas=)

I know Fred probably wont come back out.  Id love to have him since he is such a great guy.  But I am not sure it will happen.  Sakura-Con gets him almost every year =P.  The VGCats guys id love to have too but I think they are East Costers like Fred.  Which would make it challenging.  

I'm currently working on a few companies to come in for panels this year.  Square-Enix so far has been the only one that is proving elusive.  But I still have yet to get on my hands and knees to a few people to get them here. =}  So there might yet be a chance.  We do have 11 months.

You know what Fanime needs?

Hard Gay.

I agree.

What they said.  :D

Tina darling you would probally hip thrust with him XD!!
but yes I agree so much

lets bring his holy HOOOOO~ ness to fanime :D

I personally would love that to no end.  But with the fact that there ARE still some straights who come to fanime that would not understand his brand of humor.  Letting him loose on San Jose would probably be asking for trouble.  It would be HILARIOUS, but id rather not see him get busted lol

...hahaha just realized I listed mostly avex artists...

so..I'll add:
Crystal Kay
SOUL'd Out
Angela Aki
Kamiki Aya
sandman sleep'd be nice to see some Johnny's boys over here puwahaha. Like NEWS...even though their group activity has been put on hiatus for this year ^^;;;; But there's still KAT-TUN and Kanjani8...Even if we could just get Yamashita Tomohisa that'd be cool >DDDD

And I second the whole Fujiwara Tatsuya suggestion even though he's probably way too super busy o.O;;; It'd be cool to see him though, especially since I know people are anticipating his role as Raito in Death Note, and he's made so many fans with his role in the BR films as well as Shinsengumi!, Kamen Gakuen, Moonlight Jellyfish, etc.

Hm, that's all I can think of for now ^_^

W00t another Janne Da Arc vote XD

That wouldn't be too hard to arrange.  Actually have a para para workshop where they try to teach the Masses to actually dance lol.   That is a good idea XD  

Only problem I can think of is getting the room set up for it.  But that is a great idea. =}

To a lesser extent, fangirl funk.  I know that those people who don't know of Fangirl Funk just wait till the day we get someone like Seki Tomokazu or someone else of Weiss...   *shivers*  its a scary scary thing.

If I remember it was just more of a thing where a person had a sticker or a special badge that identified them as being a RPer.  And they were to be in IC while they wore that particular badge.  

Only problem with open con RP is that you get someone who is particularly rabid, undoubtedly they will use it  as an excuse to harass someone or worse.  Not all Otaku are harmless lol
