Hey there. I'm just wondrin if anybody who ordered the 2004 AZ cosplay dvd has received it yet. I ordered it and it hasn't come yet...holla back please.

I was also wondering that.

I haven't received mine, either. So I'm guessing they haven't sent them out...Maybe?

!*Jessi-Chan*!
07-12-2004, 12:34 PM
Is there anyway to order them NOW? I didn't go to AZ04 and i would really like to see the cosplay...

Hmm...I don't think you can order it off their website. You could try e-mailing them. Though they can be bad at e-mailing back sometimes.

Evander
07-12-2004, 11:06 PM
Yeah, sorry, I dunno if you can order it from the site or what. I guess they just haven't sent them out yet. I wait eagerly...

I was also wondering this, as I am waiting on that DVD to complete my cosplay MV/Documentary.
Please post if anyone get theirs! :D
Anyone sent E-mails to Animazement?

I haven't gotten mine either. Has anybody seen aything on their website about when they'll be ready?

*snarls* There was a guy who said that you'd be able to order it off the website. I guess time will tell?

I ordered one and about two weeks ago emailed them (6/29/04) asking about it, and they said that they were in the final stages of production and that a shipping date should have been sometime that week or the following. Also that if you didn't recieve it by then to email them, well its been around two weeks and I just emailed them today and am waiting for a reply.

Evander
07-15-2004, 10:06 AM
Hmmmm, this is kinda dissapointing to know, that production has taken so long when it wasn't supposed to...but all good things are worth the wait, eh?

End Lifeking
07-16-2004, 02:43 PM
I got a reply and they said that the production date is taking longer then expected(which means they got no idea when it will be ready). Also that they are trying to get it posted on the AZ website to let people know when they were sent out.

Evander
07-16-2004, 10:53 PM
Well, I guess I'll just have to stay attuned to that website. Thanks.

According to the Animemazement website dvd is planned to be shipped out by the end of the month.......Which is in 2 days, but Im not getting my hopes up. Yet I'd thought I'd put this up here for those who also ordered he dvd and are waiting for it to arrive.

Its not fair....Its not fair.......Like everybody else out there who bought a copy of the cosplay dvd, I too have been waiting for it to come in. Unfortunately, I leave in two days for college and would like to be able to get that dvd in before I go......I'm going to go insane if it arrives at my house after I have already left.....

I GOT IT!!!.....I FINALLY GOT IT!!!......Even though I got it around three days after I left my house for college.......::holds urge to kill at bay:: but oh well......Yet there are a few things I have noticed about the dvd.....:: pulls down chalk board and a ruler appears in hand:: The sound quality.....it needs work.......:: points towards second one:: The video quality....the camera man needs to quite shaking and figure out what he is looking at.....but other then that....it was good.

I just got mine in the mail the other day! I really REALLY think that they should have implemented a chapters feature. REALLY. There's no way to fast-forward to one that you really like easily. Just my opinion.

But it was fun being able to finally see all the other skits, since I went at just about the very end in the Advanced category. I totally loved the Frankenstein Dance and the Resident Evil Thriller bit! ^-^ Yay for everyone that competed!

On a technical level it was made with PVC pipe, bonding cement, screws, paint, cabinet rollers and love.

If I do not recieve my DVD soon, I will start sacrificing fangirls to appease the Audio/Visual gods. After I run out of them I'll have to move on to fanboys. And I'll start with the ones that are prettier than me...which means practically everyone.

!!!Cosplay DVD Update!!!

Editing on the DVD is complete! The DVD master copy will be shipped out from our editing studio in Canada on Monday or Tuesday. (Everybody knows that the best film studios are in Canada.)

After that the Master copy will be burned with the multi-DVD copier AZ bought this year. At this stage, it will be in the hands of Bex and his team. So everybody who ordered one shoulh *hopefully* get theirs in about 2 weeks from Tuesday. After that it's on the AZ_Webgoddess to get the order forms on the web for everybody else.

And again, we are REALLY sorry for the delay. (sorry for all that money we are losing from not having them for sale on Sunday.) *sniffle* There goes our Staff Beach house on Okinawa... *sigh*

!!! EVA MUSICAL UPDATE !!!
Our AZ_DirectorDude is going to start working on editing the Eva Musical footage down and get a copy sent to COO for them to put on the web. We are also hoping to put a teaser on the DVD. Please note that the Eva Musical had more technical snafu's than Cosplay... but because of the demand, we are really trying to get it done and out to you guys! Again, it will be released through the COO website. (and the link is somewhere on these forums.)

(and sorry.. no speel check)

Speaking of delays, I promise that my Convention review will be online by the end of the week, sorry for the delays.

Here's the current status.
About 1.5 weeks ago, I got an IM saying the DVDs were done. This was about a week after I got fussed at for asking why the DVDs hadn't been shipped a week prior as stated. (since I got fussed at, I've quit asking questions and let Info Chick handle all the mail.)

In summary, the DVD's are done but we are waiting on word that they have been received and are in the reproduction process. Again, sorry for the delay. :(

Hey, when you guys get your DVD's in the mail, let post a review of what you thought of this years DVD. There were a lot of snafu's getting this thing made, so I'd like to know what you guys think about:
+ Video quality
+ Production value
+ Dual Cameras
+ Lighting
+ Editing
+ Sound

Any critique you give will be extremely helpful planning next years convention. (except for skit Content and Choreography... we have no control over that.)

I also got mine today.
I would say it needs is a case of some type, the editing and everything was good. but no case for it! (I know its a small thing but thats how you protect it for many wonderful nights of watching, lol)
The sound is a bit low for the length of time it took to get the DVD
It would have been nice to have had a chapter section that had each skit as a chapter instead of however the chapters were done, its kinda hard to find the skit you want to watch.

Himemiya
08-27-2005, 10:00 PM
THE. DVD. DOES. NOT. WORK.

It doesn't play in a DVD player. You can view ACripple within the video itself. The sound quality is extremely low quality, especially for taking such a long time to finish. The DVD is FAILING AT THE AWARD CEREMONY. You cannot view it. The video quality is bad, but that's probably the way it was filmed.

I want a new DVD. Immediately.

AkumaSephitaro
08-28-2005, 01:27 AM
I think it's that older DVD players are having problems, I was there with Himemiya when we tried to watch it on her older DVD player.....

For some reason it wouldn't play properly to the end when we used Dave's lap top to watch it, which really wasn't cool either....

And I also think it needs a case really badly

Though the best part of Himemiya's Tekken Cos-play group was cut...... BOO!

Hmmm, I'll have to borrow someone's copy of the DVD to do QC on it. I didn't really have anything to do with the dvd project, but I could do a general troubleshooting given thats kinda what I do. When I get my hands on one I'll run it through a few dvd tests and get back to you.

As for cases and more specific chapter selection, I'll bring it up in regards to the 2K6 dvd next time we have a meeting.

So everybody should have their DVD's by now, and I suspect everybody has tried to play it.

Is everyone seeing the same problems? Are their any other problems? (also, mind you this is all informal. Any formal complaints, please send to Animazement mailbox.)

I am unable to play it on a PS2 and most of my DVD's that have trouble on regular players play on my PS2. But besides that, I haven't gotten to watch it yet, but my sister back home says her favorite skit was cut up ("Full Moon Wo Sagashite" one) and the entire reason my mom bought it was to see my little brother on stage- He was the first in the youth catagory - And she says all you get to see is him walking off of the stage practically...it's cut too! This is really a shame.

(More general response for people with similar situations, as obviously I've talked to you about it.)

Are you viewing it on the original larger PS2 or a Thin PS2? I managed to watch one copy on an older PS2 and it worked, but said DVD's owner claimed it would not work on her family's thin PS2. In general, a Playstation 2 is a poor thing to view DVDs on given the very first releases have faulty lasers that are inconsistant and die over time, so even if you can play a disc today it might not work tomorrow. The new Thin PS2s are supposedly superior (I love mine), but as they're fairly new how long their laser life is remains to be seen.

Anyone having trouble playing the DVD should try using an actual computer DVD player. These players are less funny when it comes down to it and are generally impervious to the dreaded + / - R format war between HP and Sony, though in this case it might be funnier. I don't actually know if we used single or double layer dvds for the cosplay (I'm guessing single), but there are merely so many factors between the compatability of every DVD player on the market that you have to test your disc on multiple sources.

As for the actual cuts in skits, um... I don't really know what that's about but I'm guessing it was the result of a camera-end issue rather than a DVD issue. Most of the people assembling the cosplay DVD lack the experience and time with the equipment necessary to do things perfectly, so I'm going to guess these moments were learning curve errors.

Regardless, if in fact we do a cosplay DVD next year we'll do our best to get a quality product out. Please continue to list criticisms here and on the actual Animazement Forum so that we can minimize the dissatisfaction on our next endeavor. Also list what you were expecting to find on that shiny disc that simply wasn't there so that if things are beyond our capabilities (re: budget) we'll be sure to make things clear prior to your purchase what you're in for.
