Golden Touch - Namie Amuro

Namie Amuro is huge and famous pop-singer in Japan and Asia. In early 2015, she was releasing her new album. Logan and Party have a chance to team up to create one of her new songs in the album called Golden Touch. I was glad I can be part of the team. Agency Party comes to us with this very cool touch interactive idea at the beginning. They wanted to collaborate with us to come up some fun and interesting vignettes for this touch idea. I worked closely with the creative director, Kenji Yamashita to come up with the each vignettes' idea and design. In this music video, we have combined the live-action and CG together to create the graphic. We created and painted most of the prop in our studio. The timeline for this project was very tight and we only have a month to finish everything. In the end, we were very glad that it came out very amazing!
