Freewater and DukAnime Present....
Freewater and DukAnime are co-sponsoring a series of Japanese animation films to be shown in Griffith Film Theater in the Bryan Center over the next five Tuesday nights. There will be two showings of each film at 7 PM and 9:30 PM. Admission is free for Duke students with ID. The schedule of films is as follows:
March 19 Utena Movie
So you missed this semester's segment of shows. You can still design our T-shirt. It's DUE AT THE NEXT MEETING (March 22). You've got spring break to work on it and a little time before and after break.
Here are the final T-shirt guidelines:
Black & White design -- pencil won't show up well in our finalized T-shirt design, so make sure you use something high contrast to draw. 1-sided with generic Duke Anime name on the front, or 2-sided (as it was last year: full size back with the small picture/text logo front) Maximum alloted space on each side of the T-shirt: 11x14. You can use whatever method you choose to draw, as long as your finished product is of PRINTABLE QUALITY. (pixelated images are discouraged; if you're going to use a computer to draw, make sure it's high resolution and you can print the design out!) What you draw is EXACTLY what we print, so you're responsible for the Duke Anime text and whatever else you choose to put on it.
Design has to be presentable to the rest of the general public (no hentai, no goat-action, etc., etc. I know we showed Ebichu and Poemi this year, just use caution if you choose to do something like that) Designs will be voted on next meeting by whoever's at club. Show up if you want to vote! No e-mail proxies! Artist's full design (front/back designs) will considered as a unit to be voted on, unless artist specifically permits mix+matching with other artist's t-shirt design fronts/backs.
Tax, title, and license fees separate from all other charges... Price as noted above is dealer MSRP (just kidding)
2.) Elections for Next Year's Officers
Duke Anime Elections for next year are coming up... we haven't decided on the election day, but do let us know if you want to run for office. Only Duke undergraduates (excluding current seniors) are eligible to be officers for next year.
Here are the offices for next year:
As an officer, you could have control over Duke Anime's school-year lineup. see our club constitution for more details. Ask one of the current/previous officers about his/her office if you so choose.
ANYONE can nominate any poor unsuspecting Duke undergrad club member for an office, but he/she has to accept nomination status. Yes... there's the jobs actually involve paperwork... but there's MONEY! Submit nominations to me, Bryan, or tell me in club this week!
3.) OLD T-Shirts!
We still have 8 of last year's Bebop T-shirts. First come first serve. They're kinda large, though
We're still selling them for last year's price: $8.00 each. Let me know if you want one.
4.)Animazement 2002, Raleigh, 24-hour NC Anime Convention
A representative from Animazement 2002 came by to recruit people for vounteering at the Animazement Convention which is happening March 24-26, about 3 weeks after Duke's final exams are over. As a club we are given an option to be in charge of a video room during the whole convention. We won't do this unless there's enough people who let us know that they want to do this. Of course, you can volunteer individually as well. You get benefits like pro-rated reimbursement (up to full reimbursement) of your convention admission fee. If you want more information about this, visit our club website in the coming days for Animazement contact information, or visit Animazement's web site.
The club is also considering subsidizing part of a hotel room for the duration of the convention. We need to know now many people are interested in staying in this room during the convention. There'll probably be anime on the TV, and splitting the remainder of the room among a lot of people will be kind on your wallet/purse.
Let me (Bryan Ong) know if you're interested. Your decision is not considered final at thisstage. We need a rough estimate.
A brief explaination about this year's format.|
The first few weeks of the schedule are online. This year's meetings are only going to be 7 blocks long, meaning the meetings will run from 7 till about 10:30. The 5 shows everyone picked are in the schedule along with another show, Noir. The 7th slot will be an OAV slot, which is starting out with Bastard. Suggestions for OAVs and movies to show at meetings are always welcome.
The tape library will be back online sometime next week.
The top 5 shows in no particular order are:|
4.) Inu Yasha
5.) Ayashi no Ceres
The schedule for the next few weeks (including the OAVs) will be posted by Thursday 11:59PM :)
