My first J-pop music video!   1 comment

I’m holding a tiny Japanese woman up in the air. Around me, about two dozen people are screaming “Yahho! Yahoo!”

I’m an extra in a J-pop music video for the uber-cute group, Team Junjo. I heard about the casting through Craigslist, which explicity requested foreigners for the shoot. Shot on a RED camera, the shoot was done at GLAD in Shibuya, by a production group called the Alchemy Brothers. The shoot was about six hours long, loads of fun and an experience that I won’t forget anytime soon.

During the video we had to learn a dance for the song, and like most people, afterwards I couldn’t get it out of my head. I met some very interesting people that night, a mixture of students, entertainers and media people.

Glad, Shibuya

Afterwards, we hung out side, chatted about random things and headed to an Izakaya that sold 50 yen beers, unfortunately, we bought the 180 yen beers , but who cares. Yahho! I’ve changed my view on J-pop. It’s actually a lot of fun, and I think I’ll try and make in to Team Junjo’s first concert this September. Afterwards we did Pirikura (Japanese sticky pictures)You can check out their official blog below (Japanese)
