Next Screenings Director - Part 4 (Final)

September 20, 2015, by , posted in Blog

I mean, I know I said this'd be out on Wednesday - but then my laptop died... BUT ANYWAY. The final part of the ramblings of a soon-to-be ex-screenings-director. For a quick recap, here's this:
Part 1 - Screenings doesn't have to be a big burden on your schedule, there are people there to help!
Part 2 - Getting people to come to screenings and how to (not) satisfy your audience~
Part 3 - How to be a screenings director without knowing (m)any anime, and why that's okay!

For this final part, I'm going to be making it a little more personal. What do I hope for in a screenings director?

Let me start off with what you need:
- You'll need anime to screen. That's probably the easiest part though - hard drives are cheap and I can give you a whole bunch of stuff that I have to help you start off.
- You'll need a VGA enabled laptop - 90% of the rooms that you'll for weekly events will be VGA only. You CAN bring screenings on a USB and use the uni computers each week, but for special events a uni computer may not be available.
- You'll need to be free twice a week. I know I said people can help, and they can; but if you're full time uni, and working, and you only have 2 hours free a week - reconsider. People will help you if you need a week off or something, but you can't abandon your position halfway through.
- You'll need to be punctual. Arrive to your screenings on time, I've been late once or twice - but don't make it a habit. Also, book your rooms as soon as possible. Early bookings = better rooms.
- English Subs, not Dubs. The majority of people in the club prefer and expect subs at screening. It's just the way it is. I try and balance it out by having a semesterly "English Dub Special Screening", which is generally a pretty fun time.

Now what do I want our next screenings director to be?

With the power of science and almost a century of anime, Anime@UTS has created an empirically reliable series of activities to accurately gauge your waifu aptitude!

On the 24th of September, we will be pitting everyone against everyone in waifu style combat! We'll be meeting at 12:00pm! Specific location TBA, but it'll be in Prince Alfred's Park :)

The entry fee to prove your worth is $5 including food at the start of the event, because waifus have been scientifically proven to enjoy BBQs. BYO friends. You'll need a team of 4 to participate. That, or you can meet new people on the day :)

Next Screenings Director - Part 3

September 9, 2015, by , posted in Blog

Hi Again!~ Good to see that no one... has posted... on the website again... hmm. Well, on to part 3 of trying to convince you to become screenings director!

Let's start out with something that lots of people have said to me when I ask them if they want to run: "I haven't watched enough anime". I'll tell you now - you don't need to! While a decent grounding in anime would definitely be useful, having watched a hundred series is definitely not necessary to be a screenings director. Out of the 120 anime I've screened this year, I have watched 58 of them - most of which are 12 episodes or less. NOW I know that sounds like a lot, but here's the thing: Less than 20 of those I had seen before I became screenings director; and less than half of that I saw before joining the club (back in 2013).

Oh yes, I'll admit it now! Before becoming screenings director, I was a scrub! My anime street-cred was through the floor! I hadn't watched any anime made before 1995 (I know, hold back the urge to throw up, I'm disgusted as well). So what changed? Well, first I went to screenings! Not my own, mind you, but the ones by the screenings director before me! There I was introduced to a plethora of new shows that I had never seen or heard of  before. The ones I liked, I noted down their titles to look them up later. Those that looked promising, I watched!
