Song Production Information
I present to GRADIUS fans around the country, Mr.T's power remix!
The image of this arrangement easily came to my mind, but it was surprisingly difficult once I started working on it, so I had a rather hard time before it felt nice.
In order to provide a sense of a thick beat, five bass parts are played at the same time.
After it was completed, "Motoaki Furukawa" played the guitar, which once again made Mr.T very satisfied!!
This movie should not be forgotten. It seems like a huge project involving all the designers.
Video Production Information
I was in charge of the prop production (head mounted display) and video materials for the GRADIUSII gameplay and direction.
The HUD was made while eating mochi in the New Year. (Two days of production. It was quite fun.).
I actually used the GRADIUSII footage that I played during lunch time. However, due to the connection of the captured footage, the only way to play it was on the small screen of the DV camera, so I had to play with my face close to the screen.
As a result, I finished at the 6th high speed stage... ugh.
Well, I couldn't clear it this time because of the small screen (that's an excuse), but I took hot footage? Including the boss recovery zone and Option Hunters capturing Options, so please look for those perfect shots.
I was in charge of the materials for the artificial sun and live action components.
I think this is the first among themany IIDX movies to have a collaborative production with more than three people (as "VJ ARMY" was a competition).
Except for the production of live action IIDX movies, I mostly work alone (I'm quite lonely), so going back-and-forth with HES and shiro to create this video was fresh and very enjoyable.
Well, HES is famous for playing shooting games, but this is actually the first time I saw him show his skills.
Watching him control the Vic Viper freely and wonderfully, I associated him with a master. As expected from him!
I was in charge of the materials for the dragon and final edits.
Anyways, with "Burning" as the focus, I centered this video on development without losing speed.
...Then, a certain person, who I had promised to be filmed, appeared unexpectedly for this video. I don't know why... Hehe.
