  2. Please do not worry that it has no sound, as it is deliberately muted :) !

    It was originally made as a music video though for the very 20th-century-esque copyright reason it was prohibited to be uploaded on internet by the order of the record label. Until now, anyway.

    Please enjoy, as this short film was made with the great effort of a only tiny amount of people, with the incredibly low budget but instead with the big love for the original music.

  3. Goodlooking Records, UK. 2004.

    Home-made (meaning scarcely funded:D) animated music video.
    Hand-drawn frame by frame using Flash 5...! I must have been mad.
    The video won Audience Vote Silver at bitfilm festival, Germany 2004.

    It is the first music video I have directed. I still like it. It has the spirit.

  5. Lil`B/ Negaigoto Hitotu Kimihe(`A Wish for You`)
    Dir.:Yuko Ichimura (PYRAMID FILM Inc., Japan)
    Production Company: PYRAMID FILM Inc., Japan
    Nov. 2008.

    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...!).

    Thanks for watching, hope you enjoy it :-)
