As I said initially, a colleague spent a whole week in Tokyo doing research and building a support network for us. We also had a Japanese production manager dealing with the locals for casting and location, and these efforts really paid off.
But one of the key people we made contact with before the production and someone my colleague had a meeting with on his first trip was a famous Japanese photographer named Yone. After a breakfast together at our hotel, he made a few phone calls and it was like the cork had finally come out of this Tokyo bottle-neck! Suddenly the 12 syrupy modelling agencies we were trying to deal with WANTED to work with us.
One could say he saved our production, and only because we did our homework before leaving :)
His slogan is “YONE MAKES YOU HORNEY!” :)
What better guy could we have found to be our saviour? See some of his work here: http://cexwork.com/
And go to today’s film to see us cruising Tokyo by night together.
For the rest of the day another two models were captured – Anna Takizawa and Ito Yurie. Beware, though, because for the remaining 4 days of this journey you’ll see some of the most amazing girls coming from the land of the rising sun.
More adventures to come,
