GAMMA.CON NEEDS COSPLAY MODELS!!

This year GAMMA.CON is being sponsored by the very talented Simon Metcher Photography! (https://www.facebook.com/SimonMetcherPhotography)

He is donating his time and skill to us to produce some awesome promo material. But we need models! (Thats you)

Our goal is to show how fun cosplay is, and how much fun you can have hanging out with other cosplayers (such as at a convention)

You will be featured on our website and facebook page, and possibly on other promotional material.

If you are interested, please contact us at gammaconcanberra@gmail.com. Our shoot is scheduled for Sunday the 28th April. Note that everyone will have to sign an indemnity form giving us permission to use your image and anyone under 18 will have to have their parents sign the form

Hope to hear from you guys, or see you at GAMMA.CON!

Holiday Screenings!!

Wooooh!!! Holiday Screenings time!!! For those of you who aren’t ANU students, ANU is currently on it’s mid semester ‘teaching break’ which means that for the next fortnight we are taking a break from our regular screenings to play a few different things. But they will still start and end at around the same time as normal

So for the next two weeks our Screenings will be:

Wednesday 3/4/13, MCCT1:
– Gunbuster (3 eps)
– Nekomonogatari (2 eps)

Friday 5/4/13, MCCT1:
– Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita (6 eps)

Wednesday 10/4/13, MCCT1:
– Gunbuster (3 eps)
– Nekomonogatari (2 eps)

Friday 12/4/13, MCCT1:
– Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita (6 eps)

Note that Gunbuster is 6 eps long, Nekomongatari is 4 eps long and Jinrui is 12 eps long. So we will finish all of them over the two weeks. I should also mention that Nekomongatari is a TV marathon broadcast rip, so it only has an OP for ep1 and an ED for ep4 and will end quite abruptly at the end of ep2 on the first Wednesday.

Also note that we are in MCCT1 every night for the next two weeks too.

Normal Screenings will resume on the 17th of April!!
