Feed from the State of the Industry panel at Anime Boston 2009. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.


15:00:48 <bay|AB> (Nobody is here yet)
15:02:21 <bay|AB> (I only see... 2 industry people in the room....)
15:06:18 <bay|AB> Neil Nadelman is the only one here right now.......
15:06:36 <bay|AB> freelance translator
15:06:45 <bay|AB> we are supposed to have adv and funi
15:06:48 <bay|AB> but... yea...
15:07:21 <bay|AB> "the state of the industry is .... stressed"
15:07:37 <bay|AB> (making jokes of the empty seats being dead companies
15:08:48 <bay|AB> (discussing miyazaki and disney...)
15:10:41 <bay|AB> (talking about anime and theaters...)
15:13:25 <bay|AB> (talking about random companies.. .like how geneon didn't really die... but just went into licensing...)
15:13:33 <bay|AB> (and adv is immortal as long as they have eva)
15:13:46 <bay|AB> (some are comming from the audience, not him)
15:14:01 <bay|AB> (there are other people in the crowd from industry chiming in at times)
15:14:14 <bay|AB> (calls up a press member)
15:14:56 <bay|AB> person from toonzone called up
15:15:07 <bay|AB> eric ...
15:15:45 <bay|AB> do you think the current trend of companies putting stuff on the net instead of a release will continue in the future...
15:15:47 <bay|AB> (q from audience)
15:16:09 <bay|AB> the internet is the future... especially with it getting harder to get tv deals
15:17:18 <bay|AB> tv cuts stuff to get more commercial time and what not
15:17:22 <bay|AB> the internet lets you show stuff uncut...
15:17:36 <bay|AB> part of the problem with the industry is all of the profit was made to come from DVDs
15:17:40 <bay|AB> the problem is that what its not really made to do
15:18:28 <bay|AB> it was made for merchandising and stuff... (for popular stuff)
15:19:18 <bay|AB> (polling the audience ...)
15:19:38 <bay|AB> (regarding who buys/watches what)
15:20:42 <bay|AB> i think digital transmission is the wave of the future
15:22:11 <bay|AB> (talking about differences between US and JP airing)
15:22:36 <bay|AB> q: they are trying to bring out releases faster... as soon as japan... .but the quality of translation worries me... thoughts on that with the speed?
15:22:49 <bay|AB> a: remember, we aren't doing it the night its getting broadcast.. the episodes are finished weeks or more before they air
15:22:57 <bay|AB> and it would take on average 8 hours to t/l and sub one episode
15:23:05 <bay|AB> so no, i wouldn't worry about the quality on average
15:23:19 <bay|AB> now, if they just try to get the guy in the office who knows english to do it, then yea...
15:23:38 <bay|AB> ive seen the translations that are put out on joost... for kaiji... and the translations on that are pretty much fine and seem to be done in japan
15:23:47 <bay|AB> i wouldn't worry about the translations on simul releases
15:23:59 <bay|AB> the nice thing about simul releases is it should finally cut the leg out of fansub groups
15:25:18 <bay|AB> q: screenings bringing in money from the internet?
15:25:40 <bay|AB> a: they give their content to the other companies for some money back.. it isn't for free
15:26:59 <bay|AB> (talking about tv companies and hulu)
15:30:05 <bay|AB> q: what about fansub groups going legit?
15:30:11 <bay|AB> and licensing anime
15:30:23 <bay|AB> a: thats kinda what adv and animeigo did... but its a lot easier to steal the raws....
15:31:30 <bay|AB> any fansubbing group has the ability to become legtimiate, they just have to get the money together...
15:31:41 <bay|AB> and then... license... things.....
15:34:29 <bay|AB> q: how is scifi doing with airing anime?
15:34:45 <bay|AB> a: i think they are still looking into more stuff....
15:36:58 <bay|AB> (question about simulcasting)
15:37:54 <bay|AB> why they didn't do it years ago. the japanese industry was terrified of digital streaming
15:38:58 <bay|AB> q: fewer dubs?
15:40:38 <bay|AB> (the standard analysis..)
15:40:48 <bay|AB> (of why dubs exist/don't exist)
15:45:39 <bay|AB> (questions about the xam'd model)
15:46:13 <bay|AB> the beginning of the end of the dvd?
15:51:58 <bay|AB> (talking about manga industry... and availability in libraries...)
15:55:56 <bay|AB> (talking about dvd prices)
15:57:38 <bay|AB> end
