Day Two Recap

I apologize for the lack of a video recap for Day Two. My video camcorder died on me before I had any chance of doing any sort of video recap.

I will say that it was much BIGGER than yesterday. The Masquerade, despite the tech difficulties (which are bound to happen at any convention, small and large) was fantastic and everyone who deserved an award got an award.

This is still a learning process, especially since this is my first time as a press member. There is a portion of the Masq in which I was recording from the back where ACP was, and then once room opened up in the front next to an outlet I recorded a portion of the Masq from the front row. What I plan to do with ALL of these videos is put small sniplets - enough to take in what happened without watching the whole damn thing.

Panels were great as always. No really, the VA Q&A panel was off the charts. I took some pictures from various panels and events, as I tried to cover at least most of the happenings through pictures.

Keep in mind we still have Sunday, and I have some events to tape. I would sleep, but I need watch Ep. 21 of Code Geass R2...

Tapes full of footage: 4 (I think)
Picture Count through Day 2: 682

EXCLUSIVE: O'Brien & Pudding

So, a bit of back story on this one. I'm still on the [adult swim] message boards, and every time Sac-Anime comes along most of the VAs are from series airing on [as]. Thus, I make threads letting the community ask the questions for their favorite VAs.

Well I had a request for Liam O'Brien to talk about pudding in the voice of Lloyd from Code Geass. I asked him to do that, and this is what I got...

Keep in mind that this was totally unscripted, 100%. I just told Liam to talk about pudding...

So yeah...

Day One Recap

Beginning of Day 1

...well, technically for another 5 hours or so. I have only one class today @ SCC, so after that I'm running my last errends, pick everything up from the house, then head on over there before everything starts.

It's been awhile since I attended any sort of con in Sacramento (see Sac-Con in March) so I'm really excited for this Sac-Anime.

See you all there!

Getting Ready

For the most part, I am ready to start my coverage of Sac-Anime. The only thing I really need to get is some spending cash and get everything charged. I will be there about 12:30pm (I hope earlier though), 30 minutes before the doors open @ 1pm.

I'm ready, are you?

Even though I have school going, I am so ready for this weekend. Speaking of school, I thank the person who decided to stick a Sac-Anime flyer in the Auditorium bulletin board over at Sacramento City College. I tried doing that for the ASG boards for the one before this one, but I didn't go through the proper channels to get them in.

Anyways, I have my plans laid out for the weekend. Expect me to attend a ton of panels, get a ton of video and pictures, and (I hope) a nightly video recap when I'm driving home - if I have enough energy to upload and all that crap.

Can it be Friday 10:10am already?

One Week and Counting...

Well, we're at about one week until Sac-Anime Summer 2008 gets underway. It feels weird to have a Sac-Anime during a school week, although for one it's the first week of school (which makes it easier to "slack off" and still come strong for the rest of the semester) and that it falls on Labor Day weekend, meaning I get Monday off from school.

I do have school on Friday, but my only class ends just after 10am. That gives me enough time to run last-minute errands, go back home, get everything ready, and be up there by 12pm if not there by 1pm, when the con opens up.

I am looking forward to seeing you all there!

Business Cards

So the business cards that I ordered to promote my blog came in today. I didn't realize that 250 was a lot, let alone if I wanted 500 or 1,000. I will be handing these out to people that I record and take pictures of among other things.

I'm still waiting on my press application, and I hope it goes through sometime today or next week.

Sac-Anime & ACP

A combination I've really been waiting for. For people who don't follow the cosplay community, ACP is short for American Cosplay Paradise - one of the premiere cosplay websites next to What ACP does best is recording Masquerades - you can thank them for the good quality of the skit that I was in Fanime - and posting them on the internet. All the major cons are covered: AX, Otakon, SakuraCon, Fanime, ACEN...and now Sac-Anime.

Also, with the amount of coverage that I want to do, I may have to scale back on cosplay...maybe.

New Domain

Like my Sac-Anime/Sac-Con blog, this blog deserves its own domain...

Say hello to!

New Domain

As I approach one year of Sac-Anime blogging coverage, I decided to spice things up a bit - and give this website a new domain.

Fine Tuning Update

I got the Firewire cables that I needed to transfer video from camera to laptop.

Also, getting more excited as Sac-Anime comes closer and closer...stay tuned as we go though the days.
