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.
