HOW DO WE CELEBRATE DAI-CHAN?
Since last year I have been thinking about making a celebration DVD with messages and wishes from his fans from all over the world.
He will also receive a customized Oscar statue with the DVD, the plate saying "Best Actor Watanabe Daisuke". Since Dai-chan loves movies so much what could be better than awarding him with the "International Fan Oscar", to make him feel special and to show him our love and support?
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
Simple, you can do one of the following:
1. Record a video message in English or Japanese (max. length: 1 minute, video format: .avi)
Group messages are also possible (max. length: 3 minutes, video format: .avi)
If your video message is in English, Japanese subs will be provided!
2. A pic of yourself or some fanart, in case you don’t want to show your face and a nice message to go with it. (Picture orientation: horizontal/landscape because that’s the best orientation for a video)
MESSAGE CONTENT GUIDELINES:
1. Include your name and the name of your country in your message.
2. Any kind of greeting or congratulatory message is fine as long as it is cheerful, encouraging, supporting and shows your love and admiration for Dai-chan.
Tell Dai-chan which of his works you like best.
Tell him which of all the characters he played over the last ten years was your favorite.
Let him know how long you have been his fans and how you first discovered him etc.
Send Dai-chan your wishes for his continued success in his career.
3. Please refrain from asking him about how Mao is doing or about his and Mao’s relationship because it would be inappropriate on this occasion and intrude on Dai-chan’s privacy and it could make him feel uncomfortable and that is the last thing we want, right?
After all, the purpose of this DVD is to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Dai-chan's acting debut, to make Dai-chan smile and to give him energy.
I'D ALSO LIKE TO ASK EVERY PARTICIPANT TO SUBMIT A "THE WINNER IS..." BANNER ON TOP OF THEIR VIDEO OR PICTURE GREETING.
IT SHOULD CONSIST OF THE FOLLOWING:
- your country's flag as background
- the following words "World fan award 2016, The Winner is....Watanabe Daisuke, your name (country)"
- the banner should be in horizontal (landscape/panorama) layout
Please find a sample of the "the winner is..." banner below and feel free to enhance your banner with any decorations you like in addition to the required features mentioned above
These banners will appear in the final video together the video messages and picture greetings.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR GREETINGS AND BANNERS:
March 31st 2016, midnight, PST
SEND YOUR MESSAGES AND ANY QUESTIONS TO:
I hope that many fans will participate in this DVD project.
Let's show Dai-chan how much we love and support him, even though the majority of us fans is living far away from him!
