Did someone shorten the length of each day without telling me about it? The days just seem to fly by when your forehead is stuck to a computer monitor! The summer equinox came and went and I hardly even noticed!
Right now I am doing a very important backup of my hard drives right now. Don’t want to lose the work I have done up until now. I always start to get a little nervous at this stage in the project. If I lost what I have made up to now, I don’t think I could ever replicate it again. Editing is so like painting, you can’t seem to remake something again exactly like you had it the first time. So the computer is working away for about an hour which gives me this precious time to make a blog update.
The only thing I did apart from edit this last week, was meet and drive Goma-san to Niseko! That was Sunday, pretty good weather and was a nice break from the editing to get out and see the country side. So all the photos below are from that day trip. People have been coming around the office to check on the video progress, but I have been to preoccupied to even take a picture of the guests.
first lets start off with a picture from yesterday. The was a spectacular Sunset last night which I missed most of. Aparently there was a huge rainbow over the city as well. I ran outside for the last few minutes of this display.
Ok now off to Niseko with Goma. Check out his new Album called Cyborg that is out now. This is a solo project of Goma’s. He created all the beats on the album as well as the Digderidoo. The album is very danceable. Kind of a mix between Techno and trance styles with the earthy Digderidoo on top. Great stuff and look for one song on the Car Danchi 3 soundtrack!
Goma broke some bones on his hand recently so he has a cast on. Guess he is glad he is not a guitar player!
Took a short walk around the Niseko Hirafu area to check things out. I saw about a hundred for sale signs and at least five construction sites.
Look at this they are even selling this tree! Poor bastard.
Wonder how much a “shirakaba” tree is worth in Niseko these days.

And this was the amazing find of the day. I love old building and old cars that have been left for dead. Check out this classic snow cat! Seats only four people! Super cool. Would love to fix that up and just put on display in front of my house!
Now that I come to think of it, this was about the only thing in Niseko without a for sale sign on it!
So this week is final crunch time for me to wrap up the movie. Should be finished with the actually visual editing by tomorrow night. From there have to step to the graphics work. Subtitles, titles etc., While doing that DJ Sebastien is remixing the sound. Then on the weekend will put it all together. Fingers crossed.
