View Full Version : Cosplay Documentary @ Fanime

04-18-2004, 02:38 AM
I'm an avid amateur filmmaker, and I’ve been toying with some time making a documentary of some sorts on the history of cosplay, and just cosplay in general. So I was wondering if anyone attending famine would be interested in conducting interviews for the video. I would love to get a diverse background of cosplayers, both long time pros, and “newbies” and people of all different costuming interests, whether you’re into anime, manga, video games, gothic lolita, j rock, other costumes, WHATEVER… I will give you the questions before hand, since I know I hate being put on the spot in front of a camera. This wouldn’t take very long, since I know we all want to enjoy the con. Something like 2-5 minutes.

So let me know if you’re interested. Keep in mind, this is primarily in the planning stages, and I don’t have anything confirmed yet.

Yay! Another fellow filmaker.

Sure...I'd be interested. Just give me a PM me or email me (erica@scarlet-rhapsody.com) with any updates. Don't worry about taking five minutes away from con time. Being interviewed is all part of the con fun! Looking forward to it!

Yeah, sure! Are you guys an on going cosplay group, because that would be fantastic?

What I'm thinking of at the moment is shooting as much footage as possible, and then seeing what I have to work with. Right now I'm thinking I want to mix interviews, personal cosplay stories, cosplay advice, along with con footage with narrative commentary- just like a documentary. I'm not quite sure how it will all fit together at the moment but I'm sure it will all come together. Once I get some stuff outlined, and the basic questions, I'll let you all know.

If you guys have unique or interesting cosplay stories, I would love to hear those sorts of things in the interview. I'm looking to show all the diverse angles of the craft.
