I'm jealous of your time slot, most people are going to be waking up, at work, or just getting home when my panels happen.
Well at least you got time on a Saturday to watch it haha. Yea sadly ill be at work during your stuff, but I'll check it out during that weekend for sure. I'm surprised the schedule is really low for an online con, id figured it would be kinda bussling with people having a chance to do their panels that might make it harder to do in person. Either we made the cut with our content and the con picked the best of the best, or people would rather wait till next year to do a bigger in person con.

Honestly I think the excitement of doing events for virtual conventions has worn off - it was new and interesting in May, but by the time they had announced the AWA Online dates everybody had kind of moved on, maybe. I know one person who was thinking of submitting a panel, but didn't know he could submit pre-recorded events, and a lot of other people simply have other things to do.

I do know that trying to fit in the "live" events is tough when you only have one programming track, and filling Sunday up with gaming is a scheduling choice that sucks up a lot of valuable panel real estate, and not a choice I would have made, but whatever. Not my circus.

My impression is that if anime conventions want to expand into the streaming environment they need to stop thinking of their streaming events as 'conventions' - they don't have to happen all crammed together over three days. It's basically television, they should think of these things as TV specials, rather than physical events.

Anyway, it's streaming video - anyone with a computer and a Twitch account or similar can make it happen pretty easily. I can & probably will do my own streaming thing maybe around New Years, just for the heck of it.

Theres a lot of industry vets that are doing streaming content. I think a couple of weeks back Jan Scott Fraizer had Steve Bennett on to talk about con stories through Facebook. Yea whatever you do throw it up on the forum I'd like to drop in!

So I was able to get my panel off the Twitch stream from AWA and throw that on a Google Drive for people to see. I'm skeptical on putting on it Youtube because of copyright, so sharing this drive link seems to work out pretty well. Hope you guys enjoy BAD!!

Thanks for re-upping, DKop, I'm gonna try to watch it when I have some time.

I wasn't available during the live showing for Friday's stuff, so I hopped on Saturday morning to try and catch some stuff on-demand but it looks like they just uploaded short clips? Kind of a bummer.

I'm sure you will enjoy it!

I was able to get the New Years Eve Anime Hell showing from Twitch as well. I plan on watching through that at some point. If you guys want a copy I can pop a drive link on here for that.
