Charge forward and take on everything in your path. That’s the for Nishimura Eizo’s success. The battle lies in whether or not everyone buys in to the formula!
Tons of empty aluminum cans!
I had these prepared by Endo, Ishii and Yamazaki as part of the set.
Holding a meeting on prop construction strategy with Koichiro Endo.
Production Gatekeeper Masato Date.
Line Producer Ryo Uchiyama. Crunching numbers.
Lighting assistant Keito Hokari. 19 years old. A booming figure.
Cinematography apprentice Junnosuke Matsumoto. We’ll keep introducing you to everyone involved with the film.
As of today, we’ve crossed the peak of shooting and are on the downhill slope. Though I had practically no experience or knowledge on set when we started, I’ve come to a vague grasp of how things work… but even with that said, I still lack the vocabulary to carry out each scene completely on my own. Nishimura and Nagano continue to push ahead. There’s really nothing cooler than pros at work.
Sneakers for the cast!
Oooh, it’s the geniuses at Kurosaswa Film. It’s said they can provide solutions for any lighting scenario out there.
Taiga Ishino and Ayumi Nakajima from the special effects studio Higemegane. They’re like peas in a pod!!
Myself quizzing Nishimura about the choreography of a scene.
This is the much talked about “White.Silver”!
Holding the “white.silver” which is a device used for CG composites. Is he taking a photo of himself for his blog?
There she is! Wada-chan. Among Cinematogapher Nagano’s unit, she’s a real celebrity!!
Souvenirs for the extras.
Shio-chan counting the large buttons we handed out to extras.
Wha..! What the heck is that?!
Today, I learned a lot about Assistant Director Shiozaki.
and many other interesting tidbits. There was a lot more but I’m afraid I’ve already forgotten. Sorry. If I remember, I’ll be sure to record it here. There’s really a lot that can be learned from the different customs on a film set (including Popeye Breakfasts).
Production staff Shinobu Iwamoto.A soft-spoken hunk. When he goes to pick up box-lunches for us, the ladies behind the counter are all smiles.
Rain means more work. We build a roof over the set and then soak up all the rain water with a spone…. it’s very time consuming…
Everyone is in raincoats. We don’t have any additional stock.
I asked Fung Shui Master YU to hold a ceremony and am hoping the clouds will clear up soon!
A special thanks to all the extras. An official movie button.
