Rachael here~ I actually did an audio comment. :D I hope it works!

09 13 11 (UTC) - the 'eh' was for why i can see my username after the 'via'
'on the other note'...

for the question, so as much as I'd like to answer non-V6 PV's, my bias side says V6's "Voyager". Even though they didn't seem to have bought anything for the PV except for the car rent and they were just walking/standing... does plane tickets and baby sitting services count? LOL.

But seriously, how much do you pay a country for some commercial stuff done on their territory? I dunno any other internationally filmed PVs except the recent ones like KK's Time and that one with Yamapi in NY.
09 14 11 (UTC) - Last one
There was a response by TBS hours after that announcement though... it was on the comments of the arama post...

I think SMAP's "Fly" was relatively costly, being movie-like...
But KAT-TUN have some expensive looking PVs, like One DROP, Don't you ever stop...
09 13 11 (UTC) - Well now I feel the need to defend my choice!
I hope I didn't offend Peyton too much... lol! I do like "We Can Make It;" it has a certain shaggy charm. I guess when I thought 'cheap,' I was thinking a lack of creative effort instead of just 'low cost.' To my mind, production costs are more than just outlays on things like sets, there is also the cost of staff, costume design (not just the cost of the costumes), etc.

"We Can Make It" has sloppy choreography from the guys (with the exception of Flawless Matsujun who is, as always, flawless), like they didn't spend enough time rehearsing. The costuming is lazy - pants look storebought and ill-fitting; jackets pulled from Johnny's Jr.'s when they backed up Tackey & Tsubasa during "Ho Summer" or something; and the set design looks like somebody threw it together in 2 days based on the sketch on the back of a napkin.

That Arashi pulled something great out of that lazy-looking planning is to be admired!

I don't know. Some of those inexpensive videos actually take a lot of time and planning - from scouting locations and getting permission to film to rehearsing choreography for one of those warehouse videos to sending some poor intern to dig through the archives for footage... etc. And some are just done on the quick. But that is just my TLDR opinion on it.

As for expensive, recently, I was very impressed with Yamapi's "Hadakanbo" which looked like a lot of time, money, and effort was sunk into it. The sets were really elaborate - how much did those "NAKED" signs cost?! - and all the extras were nicely costumed. Plus, Pi-chan rocked some great chair dancing.

Sorry for the long comment. Maybe I'll just send audio next time...

09 15 11 (UTC) - Re: Well now I feel the need to defend my choice!
I also wondered how expensive the giant 'naked' signs cost but to be honest I just wonder were they even got them. I dont think I could chose a most expensive PV considering all the things you need to take into account.

09 15 11 (UTC) - Re: Well now I feel the need to defend my choice!
There is a lot to think about and we can't always tell what is expensive - like are computer graphics going to be more pricy than an elaborate set?

I have to admit that it took me a little while to realize that the sign said NAKED because I was too focused on cutie Yamapi. ;)))
09 15 11 (UTC) - Re: Well now I feel the need to defend my choice!
I AM SO OFFENDED, filmi_girl!!!!! DXXXXX

lol i am so not offended, don't worry. i've got a thick skin; the other girls on the podcast treat me worse. XD and most of all, you are totally entitled to your opinion! :Dv
09 15 11 (UTC) - Re: Well now I feel the need to defend my choice!
Yayyyy! I have strong opinions and like to share them. ;P I would have totally auditioned if I had the time to put in... you guys are the best!
