one of our purpose to shoot this film, is to let the public know more about cosplay.
Because many people think that cosplay is only "wasting time and money", and it just a copycat "without any meaning", "a group of people without any cultural", a group of crazy people"
why they will said that? because they never really participant in,
when a new caltural come in. a lot of ppl will auto protech themself, and dont will to aceept the new stuff, they only think that their old teory are correct, other are wrong.
The are no wrong on right to cosplay. Its a hobby no different than other.
cosplay "will make one person gone into a not realistic world?" a hobby that not healty? the same thing playing game, playing computer, watch movie, watch comic/novel and other hobby will also lead to the same disadvantage.
cosplay is wasting money? some ppl like to collecting stuff, example stamp, model, sportcar, same they spend a lot of money to buying those stuff.
cosplay is a copycat? the famous movie, superman, batman, X-man, lord of ring, harry potter, all those live action film, they all come out from noval and comic. are they consider as copy? ppl usually never think they are copycat because they are official film. They will only think that, fans who wear like the characer from novel/comic is copycat!! Its if funny that this never notice by ppl?
Are those film not healty? it giv us our childhood a sweet memory.
oyeah, not to forgot said cosplay has a subcategory, that is original costume. Its a cosplay that u create the original character urself, the look, and also the characteristic, giv her/him a name. After that make the costume and wear urself.
a teenager want to do something they sure have some reason, why dont try to understand them first? so this movie have give teenager a chance to said out what they want to say, the "words" that hide insider their mind.
Our cosplay indepandant film have 4 main characters, each character have thier own story. Most of the story are real, that really happen on our members.
Everyone come to cosplay have different purpose. Why? Reason?
Lets talk about seng fatt's real story.
Not every cosplayer are rich. He come from a small family, he leave school when he was 15 years old. His teacher tell his class that, u ppl are useless, better dont come study. Even teacher also give up on their class. After he leave school, he plan to back school study again, but the headmaster tell him, u not suitable study, better for u to leave and learn something to find a job.
After he join cosplay, he found that he gain something that he never own it before. Inside the club there are people who really take care him, be friend with him, won't look down him because he study not much. He found his interest, that is become an actor.
the character he cosplay is sasuke. sasuke has a sad childhood, he is a silent people that dont talk much. After he meet naruto the main character, he start to change. naruto is the first person that want to become his first friend.
Hua kiong's story.
His dream is to become a model. He like the feeling that stand on the stage with many audience notice him. He like being fav by other, he would like to have many fans. Cosworld has give him many chance to promote him and also train him.
He is a weird but funny guy. His role is a important character that able to bring up the mood of the whole team. He is the eldest among the four. He said, even u are old, but when playing must play "in the heart of a small kid" that will only really happy.
Chong Yuen Story.
He is a serious guy that do everything also serious, including cosplay. He work very hard than any other ppl, in order for other to put more attention on him.
In real life he also a serious guy, and he very interest on video shooting and editing stuff.
The character he choose to cosplay is kakashi. Inside manga, this kakashi is also a serious character, that have good plan on every mission. a lot of time the character they choose are related to their real life characteristic.
The cosworld founder story
She bears the burden of building the club and tend to do everything onto her own hand. You will find that she face many problems in the movie, example face the criticism from media. Many times she has think to give up the club that she built.
One company come to find cosworld for sponsor, but under some condition ... cosplayer give them play till like monkey.
After the meeting, they giv up the sponsorship, but then have to leave the head office which sponsor by them.
from outsider, it seem that cosplay is no meaning for other people, but from the story u can see that what they have gain. This story teach us, we canot judge one thing before we totally understand them.
why cosplay this topic keep debate and criticism by media and public? Because it has the value to discuss.
actually before we shoot this film, we also never notice that our member put so much hope on our club. this film make us know more about our cosplayer.
another reason to shoot this film is because a lot of people think that, a film is only for those professional. Our team has meet with another person that give us a negative response. this people think that, young ppl like high school student, uni student without training and without any experience, not able dare to face infront camera.
i totally not agree, and we think that we should start it when we still young, and we should promote it at high school and university.
