Documentary Idea

For my documentary, I plan on making an approximately 4-5 minute video about cosplay. I would like to discuss what cosplay is, when it is practiced, why people enjoy it, how long they’ve been doing it, why they got interested in it, and so on.

For my A-roll, I would like to interview one of my close friends who cosplays with me, and I would also like to interview a couple students on campus who are cosplayers as well. I may also interview one or two students who do not cosplay just to hear their opinions on cosplay; what they know of it so far and what they think of it.

For my B-roll, I plan on using footage from New York Comic Con (2015) of cosplayers role-playing as their characters, posing for photos, and talking to fans.
