Today we are filming some bits n pieces for the second season of Culture Japan - first episode starts in two weeks in Japan @.@
I don't think I've ever been this busy before. This time round I'm directing and producing the show which alone is a 2 person job ToT
And then there is production of the opening anime and OP/ED soundtracks too - which I guess is another 1 person job ^^;
Apart from TV production, I'm in the final stages of producing the Mirai Health Mouse Pad - the first few samples had problems. Been working with our factory to get the perfect product before we can commit to producing a load.
Mirai Gaia clients are on the increase - our next client after Konami is a rather popular eroge company ^o^ Their site will launch on Mirai Gaia at the end of October.
Have not been able to update this site as much as I would like but am making the sacrifice in order to complete the life changing milestones. Have been updating my Facebook more often though.
Anyway - cant wait until January where I think I'll get at least one full day off to do absolutely nothing but laze around ^^;
Posting a short Desk Diary today as "Desk Diary 2011/09" but will catch up with 2011/08 in a later post.
Filming in the office studio is much cheaper than filming at the TV stations studio where I would need to pay for the studio set to be put together, camera, lighting, sound and tape conversion - footage taken on the TV studio cameras is handed to me on a tape which I then need to convert to data which ends up being on a tape again! Japan may have advanced technology but it doesn't seem to exist in the broadcasting world yet.
Been learning a load on the job about TV production which I mostly left to my producer to deal with last time. One thing I recently learned is that flicker while filming happens under certain lighting conditions - changing the shutter speed to about 100 would normally stop the flickering. I thought shutter speed was something only for still cameras.
