Day 379 { Video Shoot #2 For Season 2 } Thursday, April 2, 2009


Day 379 { Video Shoot #2 For Season 2 }

I had a video shoot today at the Niimi nursing college... This one was about how to say the proper English words for certain words that the Japanese gave their own pronunciations .... Eg. Ball point pen... The Japanese people would say Bawru pen .... And Ham sandwich, they would say Ham sand... The video shoot took about a hour and a half then we went to have dinner....The guy who always does the video shooting said he studied English in Seattle, Washington for 2 years....after that, He said he got a nice video editing job in Tokyo. But, because of tradition, he had to leave his job in Tokyo, come back to Niimi, and help out his parents.... He also said that was his big brother's duty, but because his big brother already built a house in Tokyo, he had to go in his brother's stead. I think that was a huge personal sacrifice...
