Thank you for writing this up! As someone who couldn't attend VVC, I really appreciate all the write-ups.

Regarding the stories about visibility, just this week the Japan Times Online had a column about anime music vids: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/mail/fo20071115pm.html It's not a bad article, but what gave me pause was this:
According to geek lore, the first fan-edited music video was most likely made in the 1970s using footage from the original "Star Trek" TV show (though somehow no one remembers the choice of music). Then, in 1982, a 21-year-old college student named Jim Kaposztas hooked up two VCRs to each other and married violent scenes from the anime "Star Blazers" to "All You Need Is Love" by The Beatles to humorous effect. With that, the anime music video was born.

Granted, the column was about AMVs, but I still couldn't help feeling like live-action vidding was somehow, I don't know, inferior/suspect/possibly just a rumor. There were (and still are -- RIAA, anyone?) good reasons for being underground, but obscurity has its downsides.
