UPDATE:

Meeting Time: Saturday at 1PM in front of Harvey's
Interviews: Almost all day on Saturday and part of the day on Sunday

NOTE: I forgot to mention where I was going to post the interviews. The main focus of the interview is to show how many people going to Anime North (was going to say how many Canadians but I know some people there won't be from Canada) know about UTAU and what the fans are like. This will be going on Youtube, but I was also hoping to post it on Nico Nico Douga as well. I think it'd be interesting to show them a bit of what Canadian UTAU fans are like?

Don't you guys back down on me just because it's going on a Japanese video website! I will be very :iconnotimpressedplz:
-------

UTAU interviews and meetings have been moved elsewhere and at another time on Saturday and Sunday so as not to interfere with any other ongoing events. Please do not go to the Vocaloid photoshoot if your intentions are only to find out where to go for the UTAU meet up and interviews

To those who are going to Anime North and have agreed to being interviewed, please comment on this journal or send me a PM so I can keep track of the interviews. Please also include if you want to be interviewed at the meet up or if you want to arrange another time at another place to do it.

Alright guys, sorry for not updating earlier!

So originally I was going to just do interviews, but I will be focusing more on arranging a meet up now!

On the subject of a meet up I have pretty awesome news. The creators of UTAUPPS/Ishimaru Michiyo and Sakuwatari Chiyo's voicers will be attending Anime North, and they will be at the meetup!. mx, Michiyo's voicer, says that she will make stickers of the UTAUs of the people who are attending the meetup, so DON'T MISS OUT! HOWEVER, if you would like a sticker, please comment that you're going to attend the meet up ahead of time so that mx knows what UTAUs to make stickers of.

So. Here is some information on how this is going to go:
-I will be walking around cosplaying my UTAU Injune Midori. I'll be wearing cat ears, glasses and a tail with a bell. Just listen for it. I'm sure you won't miss me. I will be bright green. It should be easy to spot me unless I'm walking on the grass. (Pictures will come later)
-I, or my friend, will be carrying a sign that says something along the lines of "UTAU INTERVIEWS". Please watch out for that!
- As stated above, DO NOT go to the Vocaloid photoshoot if you're looking for the UTAU meetup and interviews. They will be taking place somewhere else and at some time that doesn't interfere with any other Anime North events!
-YOU DO NOT have to be cosplaying as a VOCALOID, or UTAU. You don't have to own an UTAU, nor do you have to know how to use UTAU. You just have to have SOME knowledge of UTAU. I want to interview people with all different amounts of knowledge of UTAU. Heck you can even come to me to be interviewed and have no idea what the heck is going on. Or if you just want to be on camera. It's all for fun :)

EXAMPLES OF QUESTIONS I MAY ASK (Just to show you what the interview is going to be like. You do not have to answer all questions. For some questions like, what's your name? Where did you come from? You don't have to answer your real name or specifically where you come from. Just name the country, state/province, city, or you can just skip it.)


Basic questions

1. What's your name?
2. Where are you from?
3. What are you cosplaying as?
4. How did you find out about UTAU?
5. Who's your favourite VIPPERloid?
6. Who's your favourite UTAU that isn't a VIPPERloid?
7. Which UTAU do you think deserves more attention?
8. Who's your favourite UTAU user?
9. at the end of the interview Would you like to make any shoutouts to any UTAU users out there? Please include their name and/or their UTAU in the shoutout (Can be overseas or Japanese users. Doesn't matter. There is a chance that they just might hear what you want to say to them/about them! Also, I might ask for you to write down their name so that I can write it out on the video)

Questions for people who know more about UTAU
1. From this list of UTAU, tell me the ones you know (I will have a pretty big list of UTAUs that are well known and not so well known)

Fun random questions (This video can't all be questions, right :P? Gotta have some fun man!)
1. Do the _________ dance with me
2. Sing _________ with me


Sooo as you can see, the interview is actually pretty short, sweet and simple ovo! I kind of wanted to add more questions but I'm not sure what to ask. Was going to include questions such as "Have you ever made a ust before, made an original, etc." but I'm not so sure if I should include them. Please comment with your thoughts about the current questions. Also, feel free to comment about more questions I could add to the list :)!

*People going to the meet up and being interviewed (I hope you guys don't mind me making a list ovo)

Too bad I'm too far from Canada and well, short on cash atm. U.U;
Haa.. oh well.
I wonder if there's anyone in this group that will be going to Chiisai con in Kentucky...?
I plan to be hosting an UTAU panel there...

Wish I could go, since Mx-sama was who got me into UTAU.

I'll probably be walking around looking for interviews until 1PM or so? After that I'll still do interviews, except I won't actually be "looking" for them. You'll have to approach me xD;. Tell me what time you are free and where you want to meet and I think we can arrange to meet up and do an interview C:.

I would come but... There is a 0.00000001% chance I could ever make it there. Can't afford it and I have no ride. I wish I could have my UTAUloid advertised though.

I can definitely come! o u o!!
and :iconkodomo-no-omocha: and :iconkotoneharuka: are coming along with me as well (they are also UTAU users)
though, what if I don't want to mention other UTAUs? or don't have a favourite?
I'd maybe rather not want to try to mention everyone, because I'm worried I might forget someone? or leave people out?

I'm hosting the Saturday photoshoot and I need to tell you that you will not be able to do the meetup at the space before the photoshoot nor after. The space is going to be used by other groups for their series photoshoots before and after said times and locations. Also, you can't do the meetup at the photoshoot itself because it is against the rules of the con.

Not trying to rain on parades but that's them rules and I want to give heads up. You can still hold the meetup but it will need to be done elsewhere on the con grounds where photoshoots aren't happening.

Thanks again for the heads up!

I was rather hasty upon deciding how to go about doing this interview and meet up and had not thought through things quite properly. My previous thoughts do seem quite silly and pretty inconvenient now. Sorry for the trouble! The information has been changed to avoid any more conflicts.

Thank you! This will be better in the long run as there will not be any confusion with the two groups. And no hard feelings! At least this mess has been cleaned up now rather than at the shoots x__x

With that said, I think I remember saying I wanted to be interviewed back when you first announced? I'm only available Friday and Saturday so somewhere on those two days are good for me.

Good luck with the meet up too!~ It already sounds like you have quite a number of people wanting to attend.

It's quite lucky that you're hosting one of the photoshoots. Otherwise, I'm not so sure anybody would have warned me. That would've been really bad DX.

I won't be there on Friday but I'll definitely be there on Saturday. I'm sure I'll be free the whole entire day so you can just pick a time that's convenient for you :).

I was actually really worried that there would only be one or two people wanting to go to the meet up. I'm glad that there's more than that!

Aha I actually lucked out with the hosting thing. There were originally three Vocaloid shoots, one for each day. The ones hosting Saturday and Friday ended up dropping them to help run the Sunday shoot, which left the Saturday shoot open for anyone wanting to host (Friday was cancelled since there wasn't any interest in Vocaloid cosplayers on that day). I've never hosted a shoot so I decided to take up the task since I couldn't see a shoot for something popular go to waste. Besides, there will be a ton of Vocaloid cosplayers on Saturday, not just the Sunday!

Than Saturday it will be! So far as I know I'll be free from 12pm-4pm, so likely around in those times will be best. Maybe 1pm?

I hope a lot more UTAU cosplayers come to the photoshoot this year *v*. At the AN2010 Sunday photoshoot there was Teto, Michiyo, Chiyo and me cosplaying Midori. At the AN2011 Saturday photoshoot I think I only saw a Teto. I might have seen a Ruko too but they weren't in the photoshoot. I don't even remember what year that was though x3. I was cosplaying rolling girl Miku last year on Saturday.

Sure, sounds good to me! The meet up will probably be sometime around then as well. Still gotta figure things out but everything will be finalized soon xD.

See, I missed both years the shoots were on because they always put them on the Sundays lol. But man, I last year I was so sad none of the UTAU fans recognized who I was. I thought at least a few people would have known, and was quite put out there were no other UTAU cosplayers to hang out with ;n;

If I paid more attention to the people around me, and saw you, I'm pretty sure I would have recognized you xD. I actually don't remember half the stuff that happened at anime north last year haha.

Well this year we definitely have some people to hang out with :D!
