OMGs LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! [Oct. 21st, 2006|12:29 pm]
The Official Tora-con Informer
WOW, it's been a while!
There’s much to report about this time!

Halloween is this coming week, BTW, so show up at club in costume! It will be AWESOME. Oh, and of course prizes! So cool!

Anyway, the ball is rolling ladies and gentlemen! That’s right! TORA CON PLANNING IS OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY! And oh how exciting it is. We are already in the workings of negotiating with ultra awesome guests for this year and may or may not have a few of them ready to come! What does this mean for you? Well, until we can uber, double MXC-Ultimately make sure, we can’t tell you who they are, but they are AWESOME, so cross your fingers! It’s going to be exciting!

Also, be sure to go on our Forums and try to suggest things – showings, events or even panels (who knows, if it’s a good idea we might use it!) Consumer feedback is always a plus, sp be sure to tell us what you think, what interests you and even what you think worked out last year.


OH WOW, it’s officially started! If you are an RIT student, you know that the Weeks of Doom are upon us, and so art on the side may be a bit of a duty And that is exactly what break is for. RIT gave us a break so we could make super shiny art for Tora-con, that’s the whole reason, really! Or at least that’s why it’s longer this year. No, really >_>.
But yes, if you are good, or decent, or just entertained by drawing, submit to us some of your stuff, your kids stuff if you want, and maybe we’ll use it if you’re work. We might even ask you to put it on a flier, shirt or banner! If we get enough art, and the permissions from the artists, we might even make an art book this year! If you are feeling extremely motivated you can even ask us for information about becoming a Staff Artist.
So truly think about it. It can be anything RIT, Tiger, Tora-con or just plain Fan-art. Submit it through one of the following:
Hand a digital (CD) version of it to one of the E-board members at club (preferred)
Email it to any of the e-board (listed at http://www.animehost.rit.edu/eboard )
Snail mail it (a CD is preferred but the original, or a high quality color copy might be acceptable) to:
Anime Club
Rochester Institute of Technology
127 Lomb Memorial Drive
Rochester, NY 14623

On the note of artwork, the ultimate awesome achievement and honor would be, for those of you interested in making art who also happen to like designing just a little, design us a shiny new webpage! Now, while an outstanding task at first sight what we need can be summarized as:
a ‘main’ illustration or image that can be used as a backdrop or a logo, last year this was RITA, but doesn’t have to be this year.
A layout (if you cant program it that’s fine, just design it) that should be able to include tab capabilities for guests, schedules, etc.
A color scheme that you think fits your art, RIT, Anime Club and/or Tora-con, this can be entirely up to you.
And any other shinies you think will look nice (without overdoing it)
The thing about the website is that we need this ASAP. Our site will be up and running before you know it and wont look pretty at first (this might inspire you). So basically, the layout doesn’t need to be over the top, but should include some form of image.

And then, of course is the AMV CONTEST. While I don’t have all the information on this, I will update and let you know as soon as the information is made available. But in that regards, start planning and making an AMV for the contest (a huge success last year).
Submissions to this will be much the same as the art, but will most likely have a preferred medium like .avi. again, this will be put up as soon as I can get the details. If you are into this though, it will be up on all the major AMV gathering places on the intar-webs.

And that’s it for me!

Yikes! Quite a lot to say there huh?

The preferred medium is .mpg for the AMV contest. it's much easier for me to convert. Also, No WMV. WAY too hard to convert.
