A Way To Escape - new cosplay documentary
Hello all,

I appreciate that this may come across as a bit of a shameless plug but if you have the time please tune into the Community Channel tonight at 10 to catch our excellent cosplay doc A Way To Escape.

We are currently running a subculture season on the channel and are extremely excited to spread the word of the one of the world's most exciting subculture communities...cosplay.

It's is an excellent documentary from a young filmmaker that gives an authentic insight into cosplay and its community from the people that know it best.

We're on Sky channel 539 and Virgin TV channel 233 so please tune in tonight if you can. We've got many more exciting shows coming up so if you like like it please stay tuned.

Will it be broadcast on Freeview, or added to the website afterwards?

Hey CaptainAmelia,

Unfortunately, we only broadcast on Freeview from 5am - 8am at the moment so you won't be able to catch it on Freeview.

That being said, we put all out shows up on our site and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/CommunityChannelTV) so it should hopefully be up there very soon if you fancy watching it online.

I did watch the programme. I dont want to sound like a horrible person but it was really dissapointing and I did watch it right through, but I found it quite boring. It didnt really show any exciting parts of cosplay. And it dragged on quite a bit. some bits seemed a little interesting.

The camera work wasnt very good. And the contents were very boring.

I dont think there was enough research into this before it was produced and displayed on live tv. There are alot of factors not taken into consideration and not any good filming. the cosplayers being interviewed looked confused and slightly uncomfortable.

I wish it showed the actual event of conventions such as London MCM expos. and footage of their Euro-cosplay masquerades they are amazing would captivate more viewers. They should of shown the good work of cosplays.

Like the video displayed on Mcm midlands expo.Although tis a short video covering the expo it shows way more in the 5 minute clip than that whole episode.


This is a cover of the midlands expo and the footage and camera work is far more clear than the programme
But I wish it was more exciting

i have to agree with what was said above. i just sat through it, and found it *extremely* slow, and very boring. It didnt seem to have much of a point either. all i got from it was that people generally consider it "weird"? i feel the whole thing could have been edited down to a couple of minutes and still had the same effect.

I dont think the people interviewed represent a very good proportion of the UK cosplay scene. certainly i dont agree with many of things they said, and i know most of my cosplay friends wouldnt agree with them either. i actually facebook searched for one of the guys, and found that we have absolutely no mutual friends, which i find highly unusual, as ive found almost everyone on the scene knows each other to some extent.

On the whole, not great, boring, and im not sure it painted a truthful picture of what the british cosplay scene is actually like, more the jaded views of a few individuals who seem to be disjointed from the main body of uk cosplayers.

Apart from a purely selfish level (that my costume was on their twice), I have to agree with the others that it was a bit lacking.

It seemed that people were just repeating themselves. And you asked three, four people? That's really small. Considering it's been a year and a half since Kita 3, you could have attended more conventions or expos (I mean, Expo is very cheap), and talked to more people or got a lot of footage.

I mean, Expo has tens of thousands of people attending it. It gives you the idea of scale on how many people like this. At the moment, it seems like it's just a small handful of people do it "now and then"
