8/27 Production Snapshot Diary

September 15, 2012
Today we’re at Shibaura Tabloid Studio. I remember the Louis Vuitton parties here back in the day…(I just attended.)
Drawing pictures in the morning.
Everyone drawing pictures, 2 minutes per picture!!
A and B cam again today.
I can’t check both at the same time!
Panda in the rubble…no…it’s Yonda? kun.
Being crushed by the rubble.
And Shio-chan, who has suddenly thrown out his back…I have a bad feeling about this.
Miyata-san has overstretched a ligament, along with many other small injuries!! Shooting without a break is creating a strain.
The CG team meeting about this and that.
Lighting chief Kosaka-san. Lunch….eat away.

8/24 Production Snapshot Diary

September 15, 2012
Today we’re shooting all day on the road.
Camera overhang.
In order to block the road, the production team, direction team and costume team is out in full force!
And that’s still not enough, so we’ve called in people from the security company.
Whistle, whistle!
A blockade for this side road.
And, inside the bus.
Me, I’m going to sleep.
Kodamacchi in a hammock…leisurely.
Kishizuka-san lying inside a trunk…this is a secret hiding spot for sending messages to the actors regarding the shoot.
Blockade until late afternoon, as we film. Ready, annnnd, action!
A nice-looking bar that I found on the way home in Tokyo. When are we going to be able to relax in a place like this…
