Lil`B/ Negaigoto Hitotu Kimihe(`A Wish for You`)
Dir.:Yuko Ichimura (PYRAMID FILM Inc., Japan)
Production Company: PYRAMID FILM Inc., Japan
It`s the film for this Japanese pop song `A Wish For You` that is about someone close who is at the personal struggle -almost on the verge- and one just simply wishing for her/ his happiness without being able to directly help her/ him.
To depict her/his struggle and the sense of our helplessness, the film is shot underwater... for real.
Because of the heaviness of the lyrics, the film is deliberately directed towards the opposite - i.e. light-hearted, beautiful, pop outlook (that is why the shining pole dance!).
The shooting took place in the massive swimming pool in Yokohama, Japan, in October 2008 with the regular shooting crew + special diving support team (since the model Aya Hoshi, in fact, cannot swim...!).
