So I want to know What you guys think of this cosplay music video we did?


I'm an upcoming film director and am looking into the category of Anime/Manga and making them a reality. I've started out with Hetalia but I'm going to start branching out into different tihngs like trailers, shorts, and other Anime/Manga.

I need to know how I'm doing so far though so if you can let me know that'd be great. Thank you. :)

Here's my channel


Thank you so much!

*resists repeating my same I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS thing i did in the past thread*


They're great videos c: The workings in all the videos are really well done, especially since you guys do a lot of different settings. We of Team Brofist support your shenanigans.

I think it looks fantastic so far. Though I might suggest adding a tiny bit of that sort of... blurry effect at about 1:10.

I love your videos though. Huge fan ^.^

...You have Cosplay.com!?
I LOVE your videos, I absolutely adore them!
As someone who wants to make Hetalia cosplay videos, I really look up to you and your videos.
I love that video, I've watched it so many times now.

What do you edit in? Premiere?

I think you've got a good start. I have no idea what the lonely island version of this looks like, so I don't know if you're using that for a base or not, but if I were you, I'd work on really pushing angles and camerawork to make the most out of dramatic editing, since that's what direction it looks like you're wanting to head. Once you push it too far you can always dial it back, but I'm a big fan of going to the bleeding edge of too far. Then you have the option of pushing it over that edge when you need to and it won't look out of place.

You might also look into getting an ersatz steadicam rig (google "do it yourself steadicam") which you can make for under $20 that will help your moving shots stay steadier.

I LOVE your videos. I even have your "Tik Tok" parody on my iPod. I left a comment on this new one as Finland.

I love your videos :) I only recommend using a shoulder rig to get more steady scenes.
If you can't get a shoulder rig (I'm having a hard time making one myself ffffff) tri-pod works too.. though it can be a pain in the a/ss for scenes that require movement.

As for cosplay videos in general.. I recommend to not use casual cosplay. From my experience of using casual cosplay, the audience sometimes couldn't figure out who the character was because the character was wearing casual cosplay instead of the outfit most people recognize.

Keep it up :) From what I can tell from the TIK TOK vid. I'm pretty sure the people definitely want more :D (and I'm telling you that video is extremely popular, I've met aph cosplayers who know the Tik Tok Dance only because of that vid XD)
