Masquerade Video

Here is a video of the Minicon 30 Masquerade. For somewhat higher video quality, you can also download all of the files needed to make a copy of the DVD that the above video was extracted from.

Opening Ceremonies and Radio Show Video

Here's a video of the Minicon 30 opening ceremonies and the radio play that was performed afterwards. WARNING: 7 GB. You can also watch the radio show on YouTube, which will probably be easier on your bandwidth.
