Shot in various parts of Japan during our trip in 2009 with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1K on the Yamanote Line.
I wanted to incorporate some footage of all of us getting shoved into a train by an engineer and getting smashed up against the windows...but it just wouldn't fit.
While we were on the train, I kept playing the song over and over again in my head and I kept imagining 8-bit (maybe even 16-bit) videogame graphics over the landscape. I also liked the idea that, in the game of "Yamanote" that I was pretending to play, the people in our group (Mark, Cristina, Lars and me) were all engaged in a big co-op game as Players 1 through 4.
I ended up just sticking to two players.
