8/12 ② Production Snapshot Diary

August 19, 2012
And now, we change locations to a set in Tokyo.
Nishimura-san looks at the storyboard to decide the camera blocking for the next shot.
Camera blocking notes written into Kishizuka-san’s screenplay.
On the spot changes to the storyboards and schedule keep accumulating. “I’m going to lost the trust of my cast!” Shiozaki-san’s distressed…so sorry.
From the left, Kaikai Kiki Producer Chiaki Kasahara, Digital FrontierCG Nobuhiro Suzuki-san, VFX Supervisor Hideaki Maegawa-san, and me. Communicating my image for the climactic scene. And in the back is JNTHED-kun, who is in charge of the mechanical design for “Jellyfish Eyes 2”.
On the right, Action Director Yuji Shimomura-san brings the storyboard for the character battle scene and we discuss in between filming.
Hair and makeup artist Shimizu-san does a final presentation of the makeup for the climax.
Producer Kasahara is doing the budgeting and management on location this time. She is putting the numbers together with the help of the line producers, but on set where things change everyday, her head aches with the rising costs.

Finished with shooting, we’re moving over to Nikkatsu studios for various checks. Here we’re inspecting stickers.
