I could lend a hand/be in the background/provide some fannish stuff (doujins & fanart).  Because of work, weekends would be better than Fridays for me.

>Hey folks, as some of you know, I'm in school this semester working on a

>college-age-ish types (late-teens, 20s, early-mid-30s), and at least one or

>*grin*. Even if you don't fit for one of the speaking parts, or don't want

>We'll be rehearsing and shooting on Fridays, and/or weekends for the next

>depending on who's interested. Don't feel too shy, the project is just for
>my school production class of 12 people, although if it turns out nicely,
>I'll likely show it at a Metro meeting.
>Also, since the bulk of the scene takes place at an Artists' Alley, if
>anyone has any fan art they could lend me to decorate the set tables and
>walls, that would be excellent. It doesn't have to be anime-specific, or
>gallery-quality, I'm just trying to give a general feeling of the Artists'
>Alley. I'll be free after Christmas, through January, so anything that
>anyone lends me will be kept safely in good care and returned promptly.
>Any interested folks with questions, or even if you just want to say
>"Ganbatte!", drop me a line. *grin* Oh yeah, and if you know of someone
>off-list who'd be interested, feel free to forward this to them.
