All,

last year's format was 5 loops through all of Shinkai's films ... here are some thoughts ....

Maybe 3 Loops with more time for people to meet and talk on Ventrillio. And maybe one main time for Zitch to do his commentary through the loops and then we can post a link to the commentary on the sites.

I'm going to need some folks to help man the CrunchyRoll forums and the forms here as well so ... might be time to look for some Mods Smile (Zitch/Gleo?).

I'd love to set up a Q&A time with the folks at CR or CWF.

I'll have to review the contests we had last year as some were not as popular as others ... might be good to pare it down a little bit.

I think the 5 loops through the Shinkai films was a little rough and fast paced last year. This year I'd like to propose 4 loops through the films with more time for general chat and meeting folks.

1 pm GMT+12 to 7 pm GMT+12

á á á á Introductions and Opening statements: 1 PM GMT+12
á á á á She and her Cat (Sub): 1:15 PM TO 1:30 PM GMT+12
á á á á Voice of a Distant Star (Sub): 2:00 TO 2:30 PM GMT+12
á á á á A Place Promised ... (Sub): 3:00 PM TO 4:30 PM GMT+12
á á á á 5 CM Per Second (Sub): 5:00 PM TO 6:00 PM GMT+12
á á á á GENERAL CHAT AND OTHER MATERIAL: 6:00 PM TO 7 PM GMT+12
á á á á *** The films in the first hour will be accompanied on Ventrillio by Zitch's commentary.

Loops 2-4 would not specifically include Zitch's commentary ... we will post the first commentary online.

Last year there was a lot going on with posting on our site and the CR Site. I'm hoping that some folks will help keep the posting going ... it's hard to do that all by myself.

For contests ...

1. AMV
2. Film Short
3. Best Art/image
4. Fan Fiction

First place winners will get an autographed Shinkai 5 CM Per Second Movie poster.

Any thoughts?

Laz

A few things;

1 - I may not stick with ventrilo this year as I probably won't have access to the same server again (Used a friend's server who doesn't have it anymore). áIf I do decide to stick with ventrilo, we'll probably have to rent a 20-40 connection server. áDetails on my testing of voice chat are on this topic. áBasically, Teamspeak 3 now has Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux clients available. áI'll be testing this in the next several weeks.

2 - Also in that same topic, I'm also working on a shoutcast server bridge so that those that don't have a microphone and/or don't want to install a voice chat client can just listen in. áThis should be available whether we use teamspeak 3 or ventrilo as our chat system.

3 - My "commentary" last year wasn't just me, but a few other people contributed and asked questions. áAgain, I do hope people connect in and can contribute; I'm sure I'm far from the most knowledgeable Makoto Shinkai fan out there. áIf there's any fans out there who can add more to my meager knowledge, contact me so we can plan on setting up this commentary. áI'll probably do a shout-out on my blog and on a few forums to get a small group of commentators.

4 - I do wonder if we can setup some kind of questioning system where people can submit questions that we can select from and try to answer online. áThis could also be the basis of a Shinkai FAQ page, too.

Hey, Laz. I'll work on my javascript schedule with the one you posted and see how it works on the web page. The dates are still March 5-6, right? Since it's before DST, the schedule script should work for everybody worldwide. Keep your fingers crossed for IE, though. It has trouble with javascript sometimes.

Hey, Zitch. I'll try downloading the Mac version of Teamspeak and see how it works.

I added a page to the web page with the GSD 2010 schedule. Check it to see if there are any errors.

Laz, when you click the "Get Your Schedule!" button, it should show 8:00 pm (EST) for the Opening Statements. If not, let me know. I'm hoping this works for those using IE.

I tried the schedule widget in IE at work, and it seems to be working OK. I'd like to get reports from a few people in different parts of the world to see if the times that it's giving them are accurate. All that I need is their location and a reading of the start time.

Has there been any word from Crunchyroll/ComixWave about streaming all of the movies?  i kindof remember that She and Her Cat was the only one that wasn't available for stream on cr... (Then again, my memory might be completely wrong)

Im still waiting to hear back from CWF and CrunchyRoll. CrunchyRoll will put out the main press release;

Ah, ok then.  

I've been listening to last year's recordings from the ventrilo chat and one thing I really need to be better at is to repeat questions given on the text chat out loud on teamspeak/shoutcast.  That way, I'm not saying the answer to the question without any context; there were a few statements I said that just didn't have any meaning without the questions to bring them context.

Then again, since we now have shoutcast available to us so people don't have to connect into the voice chat to just listen, we should start working on pitches for the forums, Crunchyroll, and ComixWave to say on air.  We may end up with many more listeners than last year just due to that.  Many more if Crunchyroll and Anime News Network point to the page with the flash Minicaster player.

Which reminds me, we probably should create a page with just the text chat, the flash Minicaster player, and a direct link to the listen.pls file so people can use their own Shoutcast player to listen in.  This would be pretty useful as a pop-up link page so people can have that window up while browsing the forums/watching the films on crunchyroll.  This would also be a useful page to link directly on crunchyroll too.
