Today we look at the behind-the-scenes of the shoot but before we do, thought we'd take a look at an interview with Timothy below. And for those who have not seen it yet - the full version Nikon commercial below.
The operations room where we discuss the shoot and photos to be used as backdrops. There are actually three image videos in the series - the first one is with Klein and Dytham who are not only architects but also run Pecha Kucha Night and own Super Deluxe where the last Tokyo CGM Night was held. You can see their bit below.
Back in the main studio to see whats going on. Was difficult choosing photos for the background as I had to pick out stuff whereby you cant really see recognizable faces, or logos or brand names. I really wanted to feature figures but would usually mean getting permission from the figure maker and then the license holder and then the original artist blah blah.
Luckily the boss at Good Smile is chummy with Crypton and told me that he will sort out getting permission for usage of Hatsune Miku.
The second slot is where I sit down and have somebody ask me questions. Here I'm being kitted out with a pin mic.
Completely unrehearsed because they wanted me to sound natural which is why some of my answers sounded cheesy ^^;
The man who was asking me stuff was Shunsuke Iwai who works at Wieden and Kennedy - check out his making-of at his burogu. He is an airplane otaku and can tell you which plane (type and configuration) landed at any given time @.@
For the third slot I'm running around behind the screens with a very nice Nikon camera which I wanted to take home with me ^^;
This photo is a fave of mine and you can see it and other similar ones in the Toyosu Photo Walk photo article.
Difficult to get good shots of the next slot. This device had a mirror at the bottom and top.
The inside was filled with water. You can just about make out the projector to the left of the photo - the image is projected onto the bottom mirror, through the water, hits the top mirror and then is projected on the screen at the other end giving a Minority Report type look n feel that you saw in the clip below. Does anybody know what this device is called? Me forgot to ask.
