It will probably be impossible to show 2 episodes of every series requested at selection periods (i.e. after every series end or just before).

To try to save time and, in some cases, just have a laugh, an AMV can be submitted to suggest an anime. You don't have to have made this, it can simply be downloaded. The idea is that people can decide from the five minutes or so of footage whether or not they want to watch the two trial episodes.

For example: Mr X has requested, let's say, Chobits. Rather than show 2 episodes of the anime, a waste of valuable time if no one is interested in it, Mr X creates/shows the AMV, trying to make it as appealing as possible. The group can then decide whether or not they wish to watch the anime or abandon it.

Seeing as we only have an hour twenty a week, where as most anime clubs have about four hours, we have to do whatever we can to save wasted time.

AMVs should be burnt to a disc on on a USB memory stick, and in a high quality format. (.avi, .mpeg, .wmv, .rm but NOT .ogm, they are too difficult to get to play. The codecs often won't stick to Windows Media Player.)

AMVs don't have to be beautifully crafted, merely well-selected clips (spoiler free too please). A great place to download them from is AnimeMusicVideo.Org.

That's a pretty darn good idea. I have a pretty nifty Giant Robo AMV to the tune of Liberi Fataliti or whatever that FF song is. Maybe I'll get that on a disc or something... Certainly got me to want to watch it anyway.

Ah, yes, the greatest piece of game music ever... Or in my opinion at least... Glad you think it's a good idea. I'll wait for other people's verdicts too.

yeah good idea, although any anime should have some footage that could be made to look awesome in a trailer, so no matter what happens it's likely that not everyone will love what's being shown.
I think a good idea is to select a diverse range shows with a variety of different themes so there'll be at least be something for more or less everyone.

So for example, not choosing tenchi muyo and love hina (yeah none of these will be shown, just an example)

Well, don't think Love Hina is out of the picture if you really want it, suggest it. I'm putting Chobits up for selection because it has the right balance between cute/romance/hentai. In fact, I've heard that Love Hina is actually less explicit...

Anyhow, glad you like the idea of AMV trailers. AMVs will be played back to back on the day, and if I can manage to mess around with the files before hand it would be great as I can merge all the AMVs together and just label the anime (and hopefully add some cool special effects to screen transitions).

All that we're waiting for now is the tutors...

Just a question but... Who are you? Like, your real name... Heh... I can't guess...
