Well, with the teaser of the new film out, probably a fuller trailer coming out sometime before the movie, and with the movie release in May next year, what are your thoughts?

Should we delay GSD 2011 until the movie release date, or hold it around the same time?  Do we even still want to do this?

Vince at CrunchyRoll had mentioned a while ago that maybe we could push back GSD till April to fit in better with the movie release. Now that we know it will be released in May 2011, his suggestion makes sense Smile

I've reached out to Sunami-san at CoMix Wave to see if we can do anything to help promote the new film, but havent heard anything yet. I'll ping Vince again to see if he can connect with CoMix Wave to start the ball rolling.

I'd love to see if we could get some participation from CoMix Wave this year to help promote the movie.

oh no, please don't delay GSD, the more you delay it, the less likely i'll be able to be there, i'd be so busy with exams. i don't think there's a point in delaying it to april since it would still be a month before the movie.

i know it's up to you guys but i hardly had any chance to be there last year, i just don't want to miss it again. ^^

Gonna try to put a lot more effort into my entry for the story contest than I did last year. Compared to the stuff I'm doing now I'm not happy with my last one.

It will really depend on how much input CoMix Wave wants to have and if they want to take the opportunity to use GSD as a marketing event for themselves. If so, then Im guessing they'll want to do it closer to the release of the movie.

If not, then  we'll see. I need to start pinging Vince and the CR folks asap.

I talked with Laz about this and got his OK.

I've set up an account on a music storage site called SoundCloud, and they offer a free widget for embedding a "DropBox" on a website. I plan to place one on here that's linked to my SC page. Any musicians who want to upload their original music and have it available for a player on the forum, you just have to click on the DropBox and it'll direct you to my page there (check the SoundCloud site first for acceptable audio formats). Upload your music (please, only ORIGINAL music, whether Shinkai-inspired or otherwise), give your email address, and it'll send you a message for confirmation. After receiving your confirmation, I'll add your music to the playlist of the player.

Of course, since I'm using their free service, there's a limit to how much can be uploaded to my page. So, please don't inundate me with everything you've done. Just send one sample per person. I'm really setting this up for a possible music category in the GSD 2011 contest. This way people will be able to hear your music entry and vote on it. This is ONLY for the contest; I'm not going to keep the files indefinitely.

UPDATE: I upgraded my SoundCloud account, giving me more room for uploads. So, if your piece is long (e.g. more than 3 minutes), you can still upload it without breaking the bank. You can also upload an image with it, if you'd like (but keep it decent, OK?).

Hmm, maybe I'll submit something I made when I was creating music when I was 15-20 years old (that would be 15-10 years ago... lol).

Actually, I think I have the track I'd want to submit in mind, even though it is incomplete and untitled.  It (like all of my other music) is before I knew of Shinkai, but it's probably the one I'm least embarrassed to show off.. and looks to be one of the newer work before I petered out on make music. Wink

That said, I probably should package my whole collection together and put it up for making fun of at some point!
