Never too early. Always too late to start a thread such as this one.
So hey! You might saw me running around at the Vocaloid shoot this year (2012). I loved seeing so many people (ESPECIALLY SATURDAY. I LOVE ALL OF YOU <3) coming to a shoot. If you were at the shoot on Saturday and Sunday, awesome. You already know where the location will be - 4th floor. There's plenty of space for us to dance and hang out before and after the shoot. I will not move this anywhere else. Less confusing. 2pm is a good time for Fri-Sat.
Overall, expect the shoot to take between 45-60 minutes for the main part of the shoot. I usually leave 15-minute buffer for people to show up, and a couple of retakes here and there. If you show up late, come find me. I'll find a place for you to be in the picture.
What I plan to do:
Snacks - Contributions greatly appreciated. Skittles or Starbursts are awesome.
Group shoots - DUH. That's the whole purpose of having this gathering in the first place.
Individual shoots - By request.
Shoot order (non-tentative): A typical timeframe is 30 seconds per character. Maybe more, maybe less. I will try to spend less time sorting people out and more time shooting.
PV and originals will be posed together in the same shot. Ditto for genderbends.
Vocaloid1 - Meiko, Kaito
Vocaloid2 - Miku, Len/Rin (separated if we have an overflow of twins showing up), Luka
Vocaloid2 fanmade - Neru, Haku, Sakine Meiko, etc.
Internet Co. - Gumi, Lily, Gakupo, Gachapoid, CUL
AH-Soft - Miki, Yuki, Kiyoteru, Iroha, Yukari
Vocaloid3 - Clara, Bruno, SeeU, Aoki Lapis, IA, Mew, VY1/2/3, Tone Rion, Suzune Ring, Lui Hibiki, all other non-Japanese voicebanks.
Black Rock Shooter - This will happen if there is no official BRS shoot. GRANTED, IF THERE IS ONE, you're more than welcomed to invade our shoots. People from '10 probably remembered how fun that was.
Engloids- Lola, Leon, Sweet Ann, Sonika (no she is not Gumi), Big Al, Tonio, Miriam, Oliver, Prima
UTAU - VIPPERLoids, Defoko, etc.. possibly the popular ones.
Once these are done, TWO QUICK GROUP POSES. Followed by PVs. Time permitting, I'll stay for fanservice shoots.
WORD OF ADVICE: Please let me know in advance if your PV group needs to leave early. I'll try to get you in early.
So, what are you planning for 2013? Once again, it's never too early.
Fri-Sat 2pm - 4th floor.
Location: We'll be near the restroom towards the escalator on the 4th floor on Friday and Saturday. The quickest way to get there is to take the escalators from the Hilton entrance, up one floor. Then turn left and keep going as soon as you reach the 4th floor.
Sunday location has been changed - We'll be down by the Indoor Fountain (Charles St Lobby), behind the escalator leading up to the exit towards the Skywalk.
