Also-Unfortuantely.. I got the other Malic eMizer DVD in.. it turned out to be one of the ones I got form Japan on VHS. I really thought it was somthing different.. Well crap. More $$ wasted. Ah well...::shrugg::
I also have this project... It reminds me a lot of the CoK in some ways. What would you say if you found out that I was playing a major part in getting a certain animated film into the U.S.? What would you say if you found out that I inadvertantly ended up in the middle of negotiations for the rights of a Yoshitaka Amano film? Odd, ne? We'll have to see how things go...
What happened was this:
I was putzing around in the forum, and asked if there were any plans to bring 1001 Nights into the US. Iwas given the email address of the Japanese company holding the rights. I told them that I'd REALLY like to see it brought into the US. They asked about my company and wanted to negotiate rights. I freaked, and emailed them politely that I would be more than happy if I only had a distribution company, and promptly offered to help them get it into the U.S. Then... I went and looked up info for a LOT of distributors. Let's look at the marketable audience, ne? It was done by Yoshitaka Amano. You have the Final Fantasy& Squaresoft fans. It's from Japan. It's animated. You have the anime fans. Apaprently, a manga version/the manga was released by VIZ. You have manga fans. A lot of these categories overlap, but it's a growing fanbase. Also, you have the Final Fantasy moviecoming out this summer. That's a plus, ne? Even if Amano had nothing to do w/the movie.. ^..^** Details, Details... I wonder if I can get into the liner notes....>:}
Oh.. and Ronfy was really angry earlier about a fanart competition. f he had any reply buttons on his journal, I'd remind thim that those A-kon bastards screwed me over, and that his images don't work
