Now Playing Tracks

cosplaywithmestudios:

In September of 2013 the convention San Japan, based in San Antonio, asked me if they could use a video of cosplayers that I shot at their event for advertisement and promotion, via Twitter. They did not offer to pay me, they did not offer any sort of compensation and basically just wanted a free commercial. But, I was doing this for fun outside of my normal video production job and decided to allow it if they would agree to certain things details that I wanted, essentially credit.

Specifically told them that I was having a logo/watermark commissioned at the time and when it was done I would send them a re-cut version that they could use, which you can now find here (the only one online). They decided I was not fast enough or just didn’t care in general and took my un-watermarked video that was uploaded on my Youtube channel for fun and started using it for profit as advertisement. I never even sent them the original file so they had to use a 3rd party software to rip my video off of the internet.

The first time I personally saw them using my work was December 2013 at IKKiCon in Austin, Tx. Though they may have used it before that in the time between September and December. They have also been using it since that time, the latest being Mizuumi Con in March 2014 (I was told my video was seen there at the San Japan booth).

They have been using my work uncredited and unpaid for months now and it needs to stop.

And if you don’t wanna vote, you may as well mosey over there and look at all the awesome cosplay photos they have up. There are some really pretty ones. Anywho. Thank you in advance and we’ll be back to Ikkicon updates sometime this weekend. -Amanda

Gosh. So end of the year collages are apparently very hard for me to make. I made a few. The problem is this year was filled with sooooo many photos and so many wonderful memories to accompany each and every one of them. Now that 2013 has come to an end, I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has let me take their photos over the years. I know I’ve said that before and I’m certain I will say it again. I really do appreciate all the amazing and talented people I’ve come across because of photography. Here’s to a new year full of amazing photos.

Love, Amanda.

I recently started watching Magi: The Labyrinth of Magi and so I had to try my hand at another manip for that series. Still so new at this sort of editing but I’m having fun learning.
