I attend many anime and fan conventions to film cosplayers and then I create cosplay music videos. It's fun to share the creative and imaginative cosplays of these talented attendees with a larger online audience. It's also a great opportunity to really understand my camera equipment and how it performs in actual shooting situations. I use this gained knowledge and experience to produce informative and helpful videos about the equipment and processes.
I've been a fan of anime and Japanese animation since I first saw Studio Ghibli's "My Neighbor Totoro" in the late 80's. There's something very refreshing about Japanese tradition and culture as opposed to American culture. It is at the same time more composed and respectful than American culture, while being daring and crazy enough to have characters pull guitars out of their heads which can destroy entire civilizations. Watching anime led to attending anime and fan conventions all across North America where I discovered cosplay. I mix this love of anime and cosplay with my interest in technology and camera equipment to produce beautiful cosplay music videos.
