Yeah that lane way should be blocked off as it is a safety hazard.... and annoying.

I had my photoshoot at TCC 1 and thought it was a nice scenic location for the photoshootp but being behind trees I think a lot of people just didn't know it was there. I know they ha the list and locations on the schedule but I thought if we had been in a more open location, more photographers would have come.

Security tried to keep us from getting to tcc 5 for the doctor who shoot. Said we couldn't cross the road had to tell him several times we were going to a specific spot. And couldn't get around the other way.

Yeah the majour issue with that spot is there isn't a good trail to take you right there. You end up accessing from the road.

I saw them waving at people on Friday, no idea what the purpose of that was.... people were on both sides of the road anyways....

TCC security seems pretty random.

Southern entrance of the DT can work for photoshoots - have had two or three there previously, and it's nice and spacious, out of the sun which is good for those with heavy cosplays... only inconvenience is you go through the DT...

You get one car every once in a while - I saw none there the entire times I've had shoots there.

And there's also where the FF shoot was in 2011

We had the One Piece shoot at TCC4 and I think it would be GREAT is we could get it partially blocked off, because like you said, traffic is an issue and for bigger groups there just isn't a lot of space. (That being said we're also trying to find a better location for such a big group..but that's easier said than done)

That i'm not sure of, however the back of the TCC could be used as well and thats open to walk through now, which is nice. Lets WAY more light into the TCC which is nice. Not the most obvious spot but can be floated.

Trees are nice. Very nice. I think with the heat trees trump "BAM EASY TO FIND".
The FF shoots were um out those doors that are near the video rooms and volunteer desk yes? I think i'm going to have that as a spot next year. Trees are great. I think with two signs (one inside the DT) it should be a no brainer to find.

Yeah definitely.

It does seem like One Piece has outgrown that spot. It was cramped this year.

This year we asked people to vote for the location and they picked the same one as always...so next year we think we'll just choose for the group because although the location is nice, we need a place that accommodates the large group. (Possibly TTC3)

TCC2 is a great location but this year I noticed that there were parked cars there. It was ok for the video game photoshoot because we were small but not good for larger ones. Would be fine if the cars weren't there, also we were causing a mini traffic jam with photographers there because everyone cuts across there (but in turn grabbed more for the photoshoot).

I don't mind the mini traffic jam there as people can take the longer way around. The shoots along the TCC wall however (like the loading bay areas) were too much. I do like shoots in locations like that as most people want to be noticed.

The Naruto and Avatar photoshoots at the old TCC1 were great. Lots of space to spread out. Maybe reserve it for the largest shoots, where being out of the way is a good thing.
