I am the photographer / video taker this year again, so therefore if you have any specific pictures you'd like to be taken during the cosplay chess, just ask me once there! I'm also used to the rules and the such of the cosplay chess (I was a piece from the first year until 2011, 2012 I left my place for newcomers and started taking videos and pictures), so if you have questions when the game is 'playing', you can also ask me (mostly talking for the pieces here). I can also translate from french to english or the other way around, or ask specific things to the two players or the sound technician (aka Apple) if necessary. I'll be easy to spot, I'll be the only one inside the 'securite line' who won't be a piece, a player, the director or the sound technician, and I'll also have either a video or picture camera on me (more than likely will be taking pictures or video recording most of the time). I'll also be cosplaying if that can help.
So that's about it, I hope the event will be a success like last year, but more importantly that everyone will have fun!
