Welcome to Tokyo

May 15, 2010 — Leave a comment

A while ago the Tokyo Metropolitan Government commissioned Studio 4°C to make an animated short to promote visiting Tokyo. Available in original Japanese audio with English, Korean, Chinese Traditional and Simplified, Italian, French, Spanish and Dutch, the short is titled Honey Tokyo and tells the story of a girl from the future traveling to present-day Japan to bring back Happiness to her time. A boy named Takeru serves as her guide to different places in the city, doing different activities and learning about traditions.

The short had a budget of around half a million $USD, and can I just say~~~
it’s a really great investment? It just fuels my wanting to go to Japan.

Check it out at the Welcome to Tokyo website.

Great way to mix Art and PR. Tagged as commercial and short! xD

Yu with braces!!!

Ok… moving on~~ Portugirl is in my hands!! Or actually, on my desk now, otherwise I wouldn’t be typing. HMV Japan is pretty good~ even though they delayed my order, they sent it 5 days ago and it’s here already! And considering I don’t get Free Shipping with YesAsia anymore… also noticed? Prices are higher in YesAsia now, for example Portugirl would have cost $20ish bucks more with them. Should you be doing YesAsia now?

Anyway! Here it is!!!

Though, I don’t love this PB as much as I love A Piacere, mainly because I was a tad bit disappointed on the photographs. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few great shots, but a lot of snap shots too~~ What I love about this one? I like the concept, and the fact that there’s a companion DVD.

More after the break.

In the “Lost World,” of course~ LOL

About 2 months ago (a few days later, give or take) I blogged (and try translating) this msg. Now we (I) know why…

The ‘hemma’ project

November 15, 2008 — Leave a comment

My friend YoungDoo (Ydoo for short xD) has a really interesting project going on. I will let her explain herself

whenever my friends go on trips to their homes/ home towns/ home countries, i send my camera, Rollei XF 35, with them and have them to save their memories of home/ people to share with me.

none of the photos of ‘hemma’ project will be taken by me, however, i think the concept really works and i can’t wait to see more of my friends’ homes/ home towns/ home countries through their eyes.

^^ ~ Here is the slideshow!
