I wonder how many roles one person plays
———-So you made a music video for a song on the album?
Yeah, it’s finally done.
———-It takes time, doesn’t it?
Yeah, I don’t have a cameraman, a makeup artist, a stylist, or a filmmaker.
I wonder how many roles one person plays.
———-It’s tough, isn’t it, having no friends?
Oh, come on, I do have friends, just very few of them.
———-Did you have a hard time making the video?
Well, I used Adobe’s Premiere Pro application for editing, and the first thing I had to do was learn how to use it.
And I bought a book to get into it.
———-You haven’t read it?
I only read the basics.
I prefer to learn while I make things.
———-Well, in this day and age, we can find most things by Google.
That kind of thing.
I can change the speed of a video, trim it, correct the color tones, chroma key compositing, and so on.
It’s all manageable.
———-It’s all in shape now.
Of course, from a professional’s point of view, it’s just for fun, but in the past, we couldn’t do this kind of thing, so I’m a lucky guy.
I purposely avoided any sense of consistency or narrative
———-What is the theme of the music video?
I purposely avoided any sense of consistency or narrative.
Experts are overwhelmingly strong in that kind of video.
There is no point in me making them.
I wanted to make something more absurd or nonsense.
Singing by the train tracks, dancing of some ethnic group, frequent cut-ins to the murderer’s mug shot, none of it relevant.
———-Does that mean it’s sloppy?
It’s not quite the same as sloppy, though.
It’s hard to explain.
Well, listeners nowadays don’t listen to music unless there is a video.
I wanted to offer something different if they were going to watch it.
———-It’s true that the music video is a bit too much information.
This song is one of the better ones.
I’ll be releasing something more extreme in the future, something that will be bombarded with information.
———-So, there’s something scattered in there. Something about…
Oops, better not say another word.
Unless you want to get shot through the heart with my tokarev.
You see that a lot in “The Legend of Zelda”, don’t you?
“Don’t tell anyone.”
———-What are you talking about?
Only those who know can know.
———-That’s it, another stupid riddle…
———-You’re acting like a queen.
I’m done with this interview, get dressed and get out!
———-I didn’t take off my clothes from the beginning, not at all.
Anyway, enjoy the cool rock with the video, STAY METAL!
