Video Interviews: Anime World Chicago 2012

I completed editing and uploading our first video collaboration.  Mixed Visuals and I worked together to interview 13 people at Anime World Chicago.

You can see my thoughts on the technical photography side of things in my article here.

The interview video consists of mostly cosplayers who made their own costumes as well as one popular Midwest photographer and a person who makes his own costumes and does a large amount of commissioned work.

The interview contents (in order, my best guess on what they said for attribution):
- Black Butler cosplay.
- Len Kagamine from Vocaloid and a second Vocaloid cosplayer.
- A large cosplay from Studio Ghibli, most likely Spirited Away.
- Crossplay Thor and Loki from the Avengers comics and movie.
- Xena Warrior Princess cosplay
- Original outfit design based on Chii from Chobits made from chiffon fabric.
-- I didn't write down her FB page, but it sounds like "Dog Rose" possibly.
- SoulCrash Ron the Midwest convention photographer.
- Deadmau5 (dead mouse) prop construction and cosplay
- Mami Tomoe from Puella Magi Madoka Magica
- Jesus cosplay
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann cosplay.
- Christopher "Knives" Farabaugh the cosplayer and commission artist.
- The Angry Video Game Nerd (internet famous video game reviewer) cosplay
-- E-books such as "I Am Become Death" by Rocco Ryg

Overall, doing interviews at conventions is a fun and rewarding experience.  I'm able to talk with and learn about the people I photograph, which adds another layer to the overall convention experience.  While it took a lot of internal motivation to get the ball rolling, I eventually overcame that and got into the swing of things pretty quickly.  There is always room for improvement, but I think the video turned out pretty nice.  I hope you enjoy it!
