I would love to completely take an anime out of context and make it sound like it's following some completely different storyline...like, about cheese or something. XD
I DO like the idea of getting the voice acting section going. However, it's much easier said and suggested than done. Maybe we should create a discussion thread to talk about this instead of using this thread. XDD
Animating is easier than you think. :D If you can draw, you can animate. If you want a free program, I can send it to you via Skype.

Maybe we could get a few of the known VAs on the forums together and do something to show that it's done here? Maybe try and come up with some kind of audio story that's not based on a fanfiction or pull off a fandub or something? As for ideas on incorporating everyone, provided we could keep everyone on it/get enough support in the first place, maybe we could get some fanfiction writers to come up with a story get somme of our artists to animate it, and then have it voice acted? Ambitious and most likely difficult, but if we got enough dedicated people on it, it might work.
I would recommend having a VA meeting done via Skype, but it seems that GS has some pretty Skype demanding projects as it is. Perhaps at least an IM chat or something. I recommend also doing more to get the attention of the website. Recall all the public attention we got when Xanthe and I did the Twitter conversation? We even got some fans out of that. Publicity stunts. Utilizing the Youtube channel we have opened would also be strategic. It is not just strictly for voice acting too, so remember that people who come across for other things will want to check out some of our VAing too. :D
