Hey guys so this might be a little ambitious but I have an idea for a YouTube short featuring cosplayers battling it out. Think Battle Royal / Hunger Games meets cosplayers. I love making videos and studied media and recently got my foot in the cosplay scene at London Film and Comic Con. This is still in early development and so far I'm mood boarding and looking for ideas. Here is a short idea I have to make it almost a small series.
So to get viewers introduced into the series I was going to make a few shorts where a package is sent to the actors (cosplayers) in various locations. I'm in Grimsby (Yorkshire) think of it kind of like the smash bros intros. Maybe they are beamed up and sent to the location (maybe a Star Trek nod something like that?)
When the invites are sent the actors all meet up in a location in their costumes, not sure how to implement this yet. Maybe when they arrive at the location they are transformed into their costumes (that way we can make some references to the properties or jokes) we could also throw in some props from video games, anime ect.
Let me know what you guys think to Idea and throw some suggestions. I would love to get some help and think this could be a great little movie if it gets fleshed out a bit
