Song Production Information


I received a request from TAKA to "create an instrumental hard house song" after a long time.

Video Production Information


After this song was completed and the demo was checked, I received a phone call. It was from VJ GYO. He said, "please, make another movie this time good-cool".
With his encouragement, I was able to make a movie again.

I have friends who I often hang out with.
Anyhow, since we always hang out together, why not do it in the movie too!!... So the three of us hung out as usual (laughs).
However, I thought it was a bit boring to appear normally, so I had the idea for us to become animated characters.
Next, since there were three people, I thought about disguising ourselves as three types of Western monsters. At this point, the song title was decided as "Spooky".
Isn't the meaning of "Spooky", "creepy~", such a nuance?

Firstly, I roughly divided the song and filled in the sheet music.
Then, I kept adding sound effects necessary for production (such as lightning, door sounds, howling wolfs, and human voices).
And finally, I added the most important character settings.
This time, I requested for character designs from Itch, whom I also have an old relationship with and is my most trusted designer. By the way, he was the man who played the drums when our band performed at the pop'n live the other day.... Oh, what a multitalented person he is♪... Sorry, I'm getting side-tracked... I told him what I wanted to do and waited for him to finish it.
When I saw the completed designs, needless to say, I was deeply moved for a while, as he was successful in making each characters' deformed features while appearing alive.
After the characters were finalized, Itch and I thoroughly discussed the background details, character movements, camera work, and number of seconds in each shot, all with the storyboard in hand.
At the same time, the modeling of "Spooky Castle" was steadily implemented and became 3D.
As the production was in its final stages, I received Itch's movie materials drawn separately and connected its timing with the sounds, and the fully animated "Spooky" was completed.

As production was done in a rather tight period, I'm grateful to Itch for staying up all night long until the end, and above all, I want to express my deep respects to TAKA and TaQ for being OK with their appearance(?) in the video. Thanx!!

※The "Spooky" Art Gallery is now available in the G2ARTS corner!
