Harajuku indies idol group KAMIYADO has just released their first MV for “Zenkai! KAMIYADO World” (release date: June 27)! It was filmed “on a certain day in May” and it was on that day that I was able to interview the members of KAMIYADO and the director Hirofumi Ohashi.


KAMIYADO was formed in September of 2014 and has been rapidly getting attention in the underground idol scene. Their introduction can be seen at the following link: http://tokyogirlsupdate.com/kamiyado-first-coverage-20150441134.html. The five members experienced their first MV shoot in May of 2015.
神宿(かみやど)は、昨年9月に結成され、地下アイドルシーンで急激に注目を集めている5人組のアイドルグループだ。グループの紹介は前回の記事(http://tokyogirlsupdate.com/kamiyado-first-coverage-20150441134.html)を参考にしていただくとして、そんな彼女たちが5月某日、初めてのミュージックビデオ撮影を行った。

KAMIYADO’s focus up until now has mainly been live performances. In a month, they have an average of 10-20 lives, mostly on weekends and sometimes even on weekdays. Their lives are often organized by a group and have many other groups performing at the same venue (tai-ban) where they are on stage for about 20-30 minutes. After the performance, they have a photo shoot gathering for the fans. Some of their lives are uploaded on Youtube but, there has not been any indication that they would release a CD or online music files.
神宿の活動は、現在ライブが主体。月間で10本から20本程度、週末を中心に平日もちょこちょこと、その多くは持ち時間が20分から30分程度の対バンライブで、出演する何組かのうちの一組としてライブに出演し、ライブの前後にはチェキ撮影会などの特典会が開催される。YouTubeを見れば、ライブ映像はいくつか上がっているが、いまのところ彼女たちはCDだけでなく配信も含めて、まだ音源をリリースしていない。

However, KAMIYADO announced the release of “Zenkai! KAMIYADO World” through leading Japanese karaoke company, JOYSOUND and because the karaoke will be played with a background music video, they were able to have this MV made. The director is Hirofumi Oohashi, who created “beef stroganoff” and “Higehigehi Ponpon” for NHK’s children’s music TV program “Minnna no Uta” and is a director of video and animation for several other TV programs.
そんな神宿だが、大手カラオケチェーン「JOYSOUND」で『全開!神宿ワールド』がカラオケ配信されることとなり、カラオケは映像付きで配信されるため、それに合わせて初めてのミュージックビデオを撮影することとなった。監督をつとめてくれるのはオオハシヒロフミさん。NHKみんなのうた「ビーフストロガノフ」や「ひげヒゲげひポンポン」の制作をはじめ、主に番組タイトルやアニメーションの演出に携わる映像ディレクター・アニメーション作家さんだ。

Starting from early in the morning, I want to say that the video shooting went smoothly but, it did not go that way. Even they set aside extra time to compensate for any trouble due to it being the first time for KAMIYADO to shoot a video, it ran way over time and there was not have enough time to film in front of the 3 different backgrounds (black screen, white screen, and green screen) because KAMIYADO had a live to perform that afternoon. They had to leave things unfinished and resume the filming on another day.
朝早くから始まった撮影は順調に進み、と言いたいところだが、実際は初めてのMV撮影で、余裕を持って時間を取っていたにもかかわらず当初予定していた撮影時間を大幅にオーバー。黒バック、白バック、クロマキー用のグリーンバックでの撮影を予定していたが、午後から予定されていたライブ会場に向かわなければいけないため、一部の撮影が終わらないまま、スタジオを後にすることに。残りは後日再撮影となった。
