Our World 2.0 Trailer in Akihabara

For the month of August, our catchy new video trailer is up on the big Yodobashi Camera screen in Akihabara – the Tokyo electronics district. It runs through August every few minutes during the morning commute: 7:30-8:30am.

This is our second run on the big outdoor screen. Our very first video brief also ran on this same screen every morning for a few months back in late 2008.

A new documentary on biodiversity in Kanazawa city

UNU Media Studio is working on a new documentary to portray 4 seasons in Kanazawa city.  The documentary theme is biodiversity in city environement. People do not usually connect city and biodiversity, and that’s very natural.   Therefore, it’s a challenging theme for a documentary.  However, Kanazawa is a city with diverse landscape.  It has deep mountains to ocean in the small city boundary. That help the residents to enjoy diverse plants and insects, birds and animals to live around them and shows up depending on the season.

It is a Kanazawa city’s project to make this documentary to celebrate UN International year of biodiversity, especially because the closing event will be held in Kanazawa this December.

Media Studio usually use HDV cameras, which is good for documentary shoots with small crew travels all over the world.  However, for this project, we decided to use Red One camera, partly because we are working with a cinematographer who is experienced in Red shoot and owns one.

To illustrate the quality of the camera it can bring, I put together a short video.  David from Media Studio did a Quick color correction, but not too much has done yet.  I’m not sure if this is a good example of Red footage, but since there hasn’t many documentary shot on Red in Japan(I think) it might be a good example.
