We shot most of the scenes at Just Another Agency in Nakameguro, drawing inspiration from eighties New Wave videos and movies. I love the clothes we featured in the shoot, mostly vintage pieces we found in Harajuku, including an infamous banana shirt that was possibly a pajama in its previous life. It was a 7-hour long work day, including various coffee breaks, running around town for last-minute props and production issues. It was very fun and reminiscent of my days working on a television set, and can't wait to share the final product shortly.
Here's how the day went:
|Coffee courtesy of Gooz in Nakameguro, which features Western-style self service and a tasty selection at very reasonable prices.|
|The artist and the cameraman at work.|
|The studio space, thanks to the kind people at Just Another Agency.|
|Christmas video: artificial snow!!|
|Girls at work, step ladder included.|
|We were going for an Eastern European bar feel. Banana shirt's first public appearance.|
|Lots and lots of snow, had to re-shoot and recycle due to my poor pouring skills.|
|Post-filming feast at Whoopi Goldburger with part of the crew. I polished off my avocado burger.|
|Somehow that is how my night ended, hopping on the toy horse outside Shibuya Beat Café and sipping on White Russians with another group of friends.|
I woke up still wearing my hair ribbon- that usually means it was a really fun night.
