SFJtv VLOG #01: Meeting Godzilla / ビデオブログ「酒田市でゴジラと会う」
Author: Jim M. Ballard
Last month, JR and I took a road trip up north to a small town called Sakata in Yamagata Prefecture, in order to cover a photo exhibit being held for the original Godzilla suit actor, Haruo Nakajima. This event will be featured in the third episode of SciFi JAPAN TV, due for release this Friday, September 14th.
Since this will be a particularly special episode, and it was a rather big trip out from Tokyo to a rather unique little town, we decided we might as well document our trip at the same time, so we created this little video blog!
About SCIFI JAPAN TV
A regular video program focusing exclusively on Japanese scifi and monsters is something we’ve always wanted to see, but nothing like it has ever been available, neither in Japan nor overseas. So we decided to make it ourselves!
SciFi JAPAN TV is shot on location in Japan exclusively for SciFi Japan by the Gaijin Channel production team. The show will delve into the world of Japanese monsters and scifi, featuring the latest and hottest tokusatsu events in Japan, as well as simple yet in-depth discussions with the people who bring all of our favorite films and shows to life!
The show’s future relies on its popularity, so if you enjoyed it and would like to see more, we do urge you to like, comment, subscribe and share this video with all your friends! We’re eager to hear your comments and suggestions: please send the production team your comments via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Google+, or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
About Gaijin Channel
Filmmaker JR Lipartito and SciFi Japan writer Jim M. Ballard make up creative duo behind Gajin Channel. Both have worked on television and corporate/client works but found that to be quite uninspiring nor even much challenge. So they left that world and joined a young multimedia company called ACTV, with high hopes of making a living doing nothing but creating cool web videos and mobile apps!
