Rewinding the clock back to this morning - prepping camera equipment for today's shoot.
When I need a camera and sound engineer, I would reach out to my network to see who is available. Chiyoda Video is just one of the TV production companies that I work with. Chiyoda-san brought along their CRT monitor to check the color settings. I need a field monitor but they cost a bomb - cant wait for season 3 for more production budget!
Setting White Balance.
Decided to go for something compact as a second camera and chose the CX700 - I was initially thinking of using this as my main production camera ^^;
Going over today's schedule.
Love the style of Carnival Phantasm - the girls are just so sweet!
For one of the cuts we do a SMAP SMAP parody ^^
Rin so cute!
Sabers botty asking to be smacked.
Claris Nendoroid Puchi are so cute too!
Gorgeous Makise scale figure up for grabs soon.
The best part of the job - eating while filming.
Group shot with today's crew.
Back to base for further meetings with Tokyo MX TV to go over the first few episodes of Season 2.
Please forgive me for the lack of updates of late - the second season of Culture Japan is pretty much eating up all of my time and I've taken on the job of Producer and editing too. Season 2 Episode 1 starts to broadcast in Japan on October 1st at 22:30.
Apart from Culture Japan TV stuff, I'm working on the final samples of Mirai's Health Mouse Pad, migration of all our sites over to Amazon EC2 and launching a new website for an eroge maker.
Will update you more again as I hope to get the latest installation of A Week in Tokyo up.
