'This is War' Multi-Cosplayer CMV, Vancouver, Tuesday, 01. January 2019

The song intended to be used for this video is ‘This is War’ by 30 Seconds to Mars. The video concept is extremely simple and easy to execute.

The video will be similar in design to the ‘Dirty Little Secret’ video by the All-American Rejects, if anybody has seen that video. Instead of confessions, however, each individual will be holding a sign with an assigned section of lyrics from the song. As well, I will do my best to make sure that each section of lyrics compliments the cosplayer holding them up. (Or, more accurately, the character they are portraying.) I’m not an expert on every anime, however, so feel free to communicate your ideas to me, of course! :)

You may cosplay any character from any anime you wish for the video. Be sure to take into consideration the relevance of that character to the song, though. Characters from any less-serious series will make less sense, obviously.

Each cosplayer will be credited at the end of the video for their participation, as well.

So, share this with all your cosplaying friends, and let’s make something great together. :)


-What do I do?

Here is the simplified list;
1) Pick a section of lyrics.
2) Make a legible sign on whatever you have available, and write the part of the lyrics that you have chosen.
3) Put on your cosplay.
4) Record yourself holding the sign for at least a minute. Feel free to move however you wish, as long as the sign remains visible.
5) Upload your portion to youtube as a UNLISTED video and send me the URL.
6) That’s it, you’re done! After I receive your clip, I will put the clips together and edit the video. :)

7?) EXTRA CREDIT; okay, not really. But extra screen-time, yes! There are some extra clips I will need for editing during the various instrumentals. Look in the section below the lyrics if you're interested.

On selecting your section of lyrics; The parts of the lyrics available will be listed in the information. Please try to pick a section that is relevant to your character. Also, I do want to make sure there is plenty of variation in the video, so let’s also try to make sure we don’t allow any one series or the same character to overrun the song or any specific part of the song. Also, the lyrics available to be chosen will be first come, first serve.


Current Cut-Off date: AUGUST 31.
Two more cut-off dates will follow this one. Only after missing three dates will any person be removed from the project.

-What happens after everything is finished?

I will put the clips together to create a multi-cosplayer CMV and upload it to my youtube channel. All cosplayers will be credited in the video, and links to all Yts/DAs/Tumblrs will be in the description. Nobody will be left out. :)

-Lyrics; As people claim sections of the lyrics, their names will be added next to the section they selected in the following format.

Get creative. :) (If you can't see this applying to your character, then don't worry about doing it. I'll understand.)
