DAI-CHAN’S BIRTHDAY IS APPROACHING...
…and that means….
ANOTHER INTERNATIONAL BIRTHDAY VIDEO!!!!
As it has become tradition over the past few years, we would like to put a smile on Dai-chan’s face on his birthday and show our King how much he is loved and admired outside Japan by putting together a little video with birthday greetings of his international fans.
This year's video will be edited by Eszter Andrea Yang-Kiss, the wonderful editor who already edited the "10th anniversary fan award" video for Dai-chan as well as Mao’s b-day video 2016, and myself and we hope that many of you will join this project again and make it once more a successful one.
If you'd like to participate here are the details:
1. you can create ONE of the following:
- a photo message (horizontal layout)
- fanart (horizontal layout)
- a video message (1 min. max in English or Japanese)
Fan clubs can submit ONE fan club greeting in addition to the individual greetings of the members.
Example: a fan club of 10 people = 10 individual greetings + 1 fan club greeting
IMPORTANT: This year we would like to try something new and fresh since Dai-chan must be very much used to seeing fanarts and fanart greetings with pictures of himself by now...
so we decided to go for themed greetings...
The theme is “birthday balloons”, meaning that your fanart, photo message or video greeting should have some birthday balloons in them.
Also, we want to try to make Dai-chan feel a little “closer” to us, his fans from outside Japan.
Therefore, please avoid using Dai-chan pictures in your fanart greetings and use pictures of things that are important to you or things you like instead…flowers, the sky, sweets, your pet, your favourite hangout…be creative.
2. As usual any good wishes for Dai-chan's future and birthday greetings are accepted, but please refrain from asking him about Mao since birthday messages aren’t the right occasion to ask about such things.
Remember, it’s Dai-chan’s birthday and our wishes and greetings should focus on him and should make him happy.
3. In addition to your fanart greeting or video message, please send a birthday-themed poster in horizontal layout as well. The poster should contain one sentence about Dai-chan, for example “I love your voice.”, “one thing I like about you is…”, “I think you are…”, “I admire you for…”
I think you get the idea.
Any decorations on the poster that are related to “birthday” (candles, flowers, cake, balloons, confetti etc.) are accepted.
You can either submit the poster itself only or a photo of you holding the poster into the camera (make sure that the sentence is clearly readable if you choose the “holding the poster” option).
And please add your name and country in one corner of the picture as well.
4. Send your B-Day message attached to a short email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- please put "Dai-chan B-Day Project 2016" into the subject line.
5. Deadline: October 25th
6. For any questions please contact me via PM here on LJ or on FB or by sending your question to the email provided above.
Like in previous years the final video will be published on YouTube and since this year the birthday event for the members of Dai-chan’s fan club is going to be held right on Dai-chan’s birthday, I can deliver our Birthday DVD personally to our King.
