Cosplay Photo Shoot

The Best Photos to be Included in Bonus Feature on Otaku Unite! DVD

New York, NY (August 11, 2005) In preparation for the upcoming release of Eric Bresler's anime fandom documentary Otaku Unite!, Central Park Media will be taking photographs of fans in their cosplay costumes at Otakon 2005. The best pictures will be included in a special photo gallery on the DVD release of this documentary which Anime News Network calls "almost magical" and Animation Insider calls "a primer to otaku culture to those on the outside and a celebration of the same to those on the inside".

Fans should come to the CPM booth (#1327) dressed as their favorite anime character any time during Otakon (August 19-21, 2005) and look for the Otaku Unite! display. CPM will be snapping cosplay photos all convention long. All those who plan on participating should get out their sewing kit, hair dye, spray paint, and duct tape, and get ready to have their picture taken as the perfect Black Jack, Utena, or Hoshimaru!

About Eric Bresler:
Born in 1979 in Watertown, NY, Eric Bresler began his film career with Otaku Unite!. Being extremely well-known within the anime industry, Bresler interviewed major industry figures, academic experts as well as dedicated fans during the production of Otaku Unite! Bresler had initially planned to produce a 15-minute short feature, but was convinced by enthused participants that a feature-length film was more appropriate for the scope of the documentary. After two years of interviews and traveling across the country, Bresler was finally able to produce Otaku Unite!, the world's very first feature-length documentary solely dedicated to anime fandom in the United States.
