Filmed last Friday (so many sighting reports lol), Oricon article today on this Friday's Kiss Movie part 2 on Pkiss.SMAP Katori, directs Yamapi starring "Kiss Movie" in an unexpectedly strict manner
In the November 6 broadcast of Fuji TV's "Yamapi no Kiss Eigo" (Every Friday at late night 0:55) where singer actor Yamashita Tomohisa is the host, "dai senpai" Katori Shingo of SMAP appears. He tried to be a director of the 30 sec "Kiss Movie" starring Yamashita and a beautiful foreigner. After working with Yamashita in a drama, a song, in varieties, also managing his concert, what kind of production will Katori make now?
This is the 2nd kiss movie plan. The direction of the 2 people is within a time limit of 30 minutes for filming, followed immediately by editing to complete the "kiss movie" showdown. Judgment is done by the lead Yamashita. This time, Katori's showdown is against model and talent IVAN.
Theme is "I like you." Director Katori rushes to Odaiba in Tokyo, chooses a cafe's corner for the drama setting. Yamashita and his female foreigner partner faces each other at the corner of the cafe, made to sit and made to say lines for a couple of times. Katori's direction gradually gets tinged with passion as he repeatedly corrects Yamashita, "become kids!", "ah! after all that's cool, I wonder if that should be kept down a little.." Katori's theme for this seems to be filming Yamashita's crumbling state. "Once more!" Katori's strict voice in directing resonates in the location.
On the other hand, IVAN starts filming with the setting by the shore. Having a hidden conclusion, upon reaching it, a surprising production comes out. The location is in Odaiba where tourists come and go, so when popular people suddenly appear, students on a field trip shout with delight "yabai! yabai!", "kawaii!"
"In directing, the atmosphere is different, isn't it." Yamashita said. In the editing style too, they each have their individuality. Katori talks about how even after filiming, he's still so into the editing, "I can't stop myself." IVAN meanwhile admits that his work was "Like my own experience." Which camp will get through?
In this "30 sec Kiss Movie championship", viewers may also apply their own 30 sec "kiss movie". The theme is "love." The best work will be bestowed a "Yamapi award."
