Japan Festival 2012, Part 1

Yes, I still live, and have finally gotten around (or should I say: I could finally be arsed) to editing and uploading the videos I shot at the Japan Festival in Amstelveen on 9 and 10 June 2012.

The festival has been around for some time as an Asian-themed festival as far as I could tell, and in 2010 it was decided it  should uniquely celebrate the relations between Japan and The Netherlands, renaming it the Japan Festival. With the tsunami last year however, the 2011 edition was cancelled, so this was the first time the festival was held in this form.

Still alive, have a video!

Yes, I am still alive!

I got a bit caught up with buying a new camera (an ass-kicking Nikon D7000), playing games (Ghost Recon Online beta and DayZ), and taking final exams (which I should’ve almost all passed), and this little site got pushed to the side a bit.

Anyway, I’m back now, and I’ve been to the Japanmarkt (Japanese Market) today, organised by the Sieboldhuis in Leiden. The weather was absolutely beautiful, so I got to play around with my camera for a bit. Shot a few photos and a few short videos, the first of which you can watch below. The others I’ll upload over the next few days, as well as the photo-review for Fiolina Germi. Hopefully once that’s all done I’ve received the film-lamp I ordered, and I can finally shoot proper indoor video footage for the unboxings to come, so watch out for that.

Here’s the first video, one of Taiko Kids’ short performances outside the Sieboldhuis, enjoy!
