eigo no fan bideo paatei  
The English language fan video party was a success! My half of the party room was a bit smaller than the Friendly Norwegian party half, but much better laid out for the projector. I had the tatami mat area, and up to 10 people at a time watching videos. After a little while, the other party got very loud and spilled over to right near our half, so someone got the idea to close the sliding screen, which helped a lot.

It was my first time seeing Kevin's Doctor Who videos, and I was impressed with how like the old series it was. I especially liked the credits, the breaking up of the stories into sections, and the cliffhanger type breaks in the stories. It also really got into the spirit of creatively writing around special effect and budget limitations. :) The people watching it liked it as well.

Frank Wu's Guidolon had two showings, because a woman showed up to see that and got there too late. People were amused. :) Eric in the Elevator had a lot of laughs, and people liked the ribbons. When the Scentinels was about to start at midnight, a lot of people left, but there were people around for most of it. The fork jokes got particular notice.

Thanks to everyone who submitted and everyone who attended! And thanks to the Norwegians too for sharing the space and the cost! See you guys in Denver.

Good to hear!

What was the mix of nationalities?

A few Japanese people early on, but mostly people from Norway, UK, and USA.

Yay! I'm glad you and the folks watching liked it! I'm sorry I didn't come by, but I was at the Hugos and the post-Hugo Party until after 11 PM, and when I came through the Party Floor, there was such a backup through the fug of the hallways out of your room that I gave up.

Your review captures exactly what we were doing, including writing around what our FX abilities were. It was actually pretty good for mid-1980s college students, I think.

Thanks! I had some idea what it would be like from your description, but it was better than I thought it would be! Lisa's comments were quite correct, heehee.

Thanks again
ashi mentioned that "people liked the ribbons". Thank you for carrying them across the ocean!

P.S.: Will your videos ever be shown at a baycon?

"Eigo" means "English"?
I'm happy to hear that it went over well. :-D Our first international showing! And our second worldcons showing in a row! I wonder if it's too soon to start planning for denvention3...

Did you have many viewers from Boston and surrounds?

Z

P.S.: The ribbons hadn't been restricted for use as party favors. I'd expected you to have given out as many as you'd wanted. %-}

Re: "Eigo" means "English"?
I have my membership for Denvention.

I don't recall anyone with a Boston accent. Some Norwegian and UK accents...

I did give some out here and there, including the Norwegians and Swedes who shared the party room with me.
