Tech Crew Information
The Tech Crew is in charge of staging, sound, & lighting. This section is to let them know what you need for your skit or walk-on before the con to make your discussion with them at con go faster.
Staging
This section is to let us know any important staging directions you might have. Do you need to enter on a different or multiple sides of the stage? Do we need to mark an area for prop placement? Do you have overly large props or weapons that we need to make sure does not hit important stage fixtures?
Lighting
Color can add depth and set the tone of your Cosplay. The standard color used for the stage is white so that Cosplayers will be visible on the screens for audience members in the back of the room to see clearly. This can be accented with other colors to accentuate your Cosplays. Due to safety concerns, we will not be able to black out the lights completely for skit set up.
Please choose a color to accent your walk-on.
What sort of lighting would you like during your skit? Please describe each change with a time stamp as the piece goes along. (i.e. (Start in: SET UP LIGHTING) 0:00: Lights up, yellow accent 0:30: Strobe the lights 0:32: Stop Strobing the lights 0:45 Change accents to blue 0:55 Lights out)
Sound
Sound is very important to every Cosplay. It grabs the attention of the audience and enhances your performance, whether it be a skit or a walk-on. Even fashion models have music, you should too! We do recommend pre-recording your audio (speaking parts), but we can provide handheld microphones if needed.
Other
Are there any other requests or instructions for Tech Crew? Do you need Video playback (MP4 preferred)? A picture displayed on the screens? Etc. 
(**Please note - Video playback is a new option we are trying this year and may require trial and error, please be patient. Video must be submitted no later than 3 weeks prior to convention to ensure it works with our equipment. Photos should be sent in no later than 2 weeks prior to convention)

*PLEASE NOTE: Contestants will enter stage left this year. If your Skit/Cospaly requires you to enter stage right, please let us know in the staging directions so we can accommodate you. This year's stage will be 40' wide by 24' deep. Please contact Cosplay@nekocon.com with any questions or changes to your entry.
