NYAF Anime Blogger Panel: the Video

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

EDIT: This is a relatively hi-res Flash version above. I still can’t figure out why it won’t let you skip ahead easily. If that won’t work for you, for now, you can also download the video directly from my Box.net account (500 MB).

Also, omo has provided a transcript, for those who prefer to read rather than to watch.

This is it, folks: the video you’ve all been waiting for: JPMeyer, Hinano, and DS live in the flesh! This panl is all about how to start an anime blog, with plenty of Q&A from the audience–plus a bonus interview with Omo and the panel three afterwards! Recorded by myself and my erstwhile cameraman, Young Lee, the man with the HD camera. Many thanks to him for providing the equipment. (You should check out his website, too; he’s a budding filmmaker himself, which is why his equipment is full of awesome.)

This is the Veoh version, which offers a 500 MB downloadable version if you visit its page. The downloadable version is actually almost HD (960×544). I am working on a real HD version (1280×720) which will be available for download from thi website, probably via BitTorrent. Stay tuned; I will announce it when it’s available!

Thanks to the panelists for the opportunity. I hope I get to do something like this again!

Michael lives in the Los Angeles area, and has been into anime since he saw Neon Genesis Evangelion in 1999. Some of his favorite shows include Full Metal Alchemist, Honey and Clover, and Welcome to the NHK!. Since 2003 he has gone to at least one anime convention every year. A public radio junkie, which naturally led to podcasting, he now holds a seminary degree and is looking to become Dr. Rev. Otaku Bible Man any day now.

  1. Props to the great quality! Watching it on my 50″ Plasma and the encode looks better than 90% of the average anime ones!

  2. @animemiz: you’re welcome. @moyism: I’m pleasantly surprised and pleased. Having no HD TV myself I can’t attest to it, but I’ll take your word for it! And watch for the REAL HD (720p) version coming soon.

  3. It’s sad Dasaku.net isn’t included on the free hosting sites (though Randall would kill me if he found out I’m doing shameless plugging). It’s not that Dasaku is always free, you just have to get Randall in person, or use a contact form and wait for eons.

    Well, anyways, I think I should post Anime blogging 101 on my site, or go as a guest on that event that Mike (of anime|otaku)told me.

    Then again, I don’t want anybody seeing me “in the flesh”. Might as well put a bucket or a panty in my head to be sure.

    Awesome panel guys! Also.. JP looks like Harry Potter.

    LOL… totally agree with you~

    But seeing bloggers “in the flesh” is kinda strange 😛 Still, nice panel…

  5. 🙁 fuck you and your 50 inch plasma moy. haha I only have my 12 inch laptop screen now after all my monitors died.

  6. Thanks for hosting it, it was some neat stuff! Got to see my favorite female blogger cosplaying; doesn’t get any better than that!

  7. Other than probably wanting to see more background by the panelists as to why they decided to start an anime blog, I liked what I saw. I think NovaJinx here has some decent constructive criticism on the panel, just in case someone else wants to do it in the future (omo? :D).

  8. This is Sean over at Box.net – thanks for using our service to spread the word on starting an anime blog! Cool stuff… Let us know if you or your readers have any questions about using our service for all kinds of projects.
