Hi Shauna, you might have better luck recruiting people for a documentary on vampires by visiting website communities in the vampire subculture. This site is focused on the goth subculture, not the vampire subculture. It is a common outsider mistake to mix the two up. Some goths might be interested in vampires such as reading books and stories about vampires or watching films but it doesn't necessarily mean they are also part of the vampire subculture and want to role-play at being vampires. Also be wary of those crazy people who think they are vampires and/or those people who actually drink blood, they're not to be taken seriously and would not be suitable candidates for a serious documentary on the vampire subculture. If you approached people such as the 'real vampires' and/or blood drinkers than you are clearly trying to make a 'sensationalist' take-the-piss documentary that Channel 4 is well known for rather than a serious look at an alternative subculture.
