The Kawaii Kon Video Art Showcase Theater (VAST) is a great opportunity for people of all skill levels to display their video-editing and story-telling abilities.
From small-scale amateur screenings and informative 'how-to' sessions with video art veterans, to our ever-growing VAST Contest, the Kawaii Kon Video Art Showcase Theater offers a number of options for interested video artists to promote their work.
What is 'Video Art?'
Kawaii Kon defines video art as a fan made video production blending a variety of audio and video sources into a new form of expression.
While traditionally our programming has been predominately centered on Japanese animation music videos - videos composed of Japanese Animation clips set to music - VAST is dedicated to expanding our video offerings to include all forms of video art and provide a broader array of entertainment to our audience.
Anime Music Videos at Kawaii Kon
VAST sponsors Anime Music Video (AMV) screening blocks that are held throughout the Kawaii Kon program schedule. Each block offers the VAST to showcase the various genres of AMV’s, ranging from comedy and action, drama and dance, and the very popular reviewers request blocks!
Video Art How-To Sessions
VAST also sponsors video art How-To sessions at Kawaii Kon. Ranging from the very basics of starting your first video art project to more advanced tips and techniques from award-winning video artists, the How-To sessions offer a variety of topics for varying skill levels.
