Fwd: [ACML] Anime Expo Exhibitors and Fans

While this post came through the Anime Cons Mailing List channel, which is technically open to the public but generally only read by con chairs and the like, and the warning at the bottom suggests disseminating this to the AX LJ is potentially problematic, I still think posting this here seems within reasonable restraint. For length, I've placed it under cut. This comes from Marc Perez, chairman of the Board of Directors for Anime Expo, and based on a few hints, seems reasonably legit. The post as sent on the ACML can be found archived here.

Avatar: The Last Airbender - Panel!

Anime Expo - Thursday, July 1st @ 9PM

"Sometimes, the staff would not only create for the show, but they would also create for themselves. This helped make those long days of drawing Zuko pouting a hundred different ways more bearable. Sometimes they would sketch the characters doing silly things, or make caricatures of each other (as shown in Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Art of the Animated Series), or make silly Avatar animatics.

Yes, that's right! Teams sometimes made their OWN little Avatar shorts, and our special guest will be bringing some of them to share with those die hard Anime Expo Avatar fans that come out to join us! These animatics are hilarious, witty, and will give you an even deeper understanding of the Avatar teams that worked so hard together!

At this time, you will not see these ANYWHERE but at our panel on July 1st at 9pm."
