Doing it Wrong.

i like this song, but the video…egh. all this potential, and this is all you got to show for it?  not fond of the extremely short dance scenes or the static, strange-but-boring-whatever-it-is that’s going on in the PV.  and someone who worked on this REALLY liked all the lens flaring …

"AKB 600"

‘AKB 600’ is a series that gives insight into the regular daily lives of akb48 members, cameras following them throughout the day.  i’m not a fan of the aesthetic approach they’re taking for this, making it look like a voyeuristic stalker camera, but the segments are interesting nonetheless.  watch kojima …
