According to their press release, they’re really looking for people who have a personal story about the social impact of anime on their lives. For example: someone whose job or time-intensive hobby is related to anime—like perhaps collectors, or competitive cosplayers. Maybe you’re a hardcore otaku, but you date or live with someone who either doesn’t get it, completely mocks or actively hates anime. If you feel anime has changed or impacted your life in a significant manner, and can express it well, you may be just the type of person they’re looking for.
The interviews will be filmed during the Pacific Media Expo, November 6, 7 & 8 at the Los Angeles Airport Hilton Hotel. PMX brings the cutting edge of Asian entertainment to America. Their cosplay CosFest promises to be an extravaganza of costumes from J-Rock to J-Pop to Anime to C-Pop to Asian film, Asian animation, Asian comics, Asian-origin video games, or Asian music stars. They also welcome EGL (Elegant Gothic Lolita) and EGA (Elegant Gothic Aristocrat).
Cosplay costumes and props related to anime and the culture are encouraged for the interviews, of course. Keep in mind that for the only compensation for the hour or so of interview time you give will be a snack and soft drink and a free DVD of the completed movie. But if you end up in the film, the compensation may be eternal glory!
If you’re interested, send a brief description of yourself, why you feel your perspective is unique, a list of some of your favorite anime and characters, plus a recent photo or video to: email@example.com . Good luck!
