Inori – Prayer

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of AyaBambi, and so not only am I happy to see them in this video, but this is just an amazing example of projection mapping, to a degree I’ve never seen before. It was done using a new kind of projector called the DynaFlash *1, developed at Tokyo University’s Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory. The video itself was produced by TOKYO and WOW.

Match Set Position


I really like this commercial for the Match energy drink — you can also watch a behind-the-scenes video. The choreography is definitely by AyaBambi, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they had a hand in producing the outfits as well. Found via my buddy Daniel Feit.

Tokyo Section of the Rio Paralympics Closing Ceremonies


I just watched the Tokyo section of the closing ceremonies for the Rio Paralympics, and wow, it was even better than the one that was presented at the end of the regular Olympics. Again produced by Shiina Ringo, it just feels more stylish, includes AyaBambi, and ends with a cover of Pizzicato Five’s “Tokyo wa Yoru no Shichiji.” Fantastic. Found via Patrick’s tweet. Here’s also a higher def version.
