Today we cover life in Tokyo since I got back from Los Angeles. Awaiting me back in Tokyo was a hideous amount of work that piled up during my 3 week absence ^^;
Currently in the middle of Culture Japan Season 2 production. Last time I directed and presented on the show but this time round I'm trying my dab hand at being a Producer too. I'm also learning the ropes as a cameraman for episodes where Mirai-chan is guiding you around Japan.
I edited a few episodes for Season 1 but this time round I'm going to try to edit the whole of season 2. I know I'm biting off much more than I can chew but its the best way to learn and by doing so, hopefully I'll be able to take the traditional TV production processes that were taught to me and streamline them which should make Season 3 even easier to produce. That's the theory anyway ^^;
First photo - at the design studios of Noriaki Miyata [宮田典昭] - an industrial architect who also does work for Good Smile Company, Kotobukiya and a load of other companies which I'm supposed to keep hush hush. I forgot the name of this equipment but you may have seen it before on my previous visits to the Good Smile Company offices. It enables the designer to feel objects as s/he pulls and prods - quite amazing ^^
Ah, nearly forgot to mention - was late replying to your comments on the A Week in Tokyo 67 but have just done so now ^^;;
