Little known fact: I was named after a set of colourful plastic measuring spoons

People often ask me what I do for a living. It’s hard to tell from my various social media updates or my profile descriptions what it is that I actually do to pay the rent. Perhaps that’s a deliberate ploy of mine.

It’s now 2.46am and I’ve just finished a long working weekend. Looking back over it I can see that it was in a way a good example of the variety of work that comes the way of Wild Tame Co., Ltd. Here’s a quick summary:

  • 1 x busy Tokyo streets video shoot using a crazy-looking mobile video rig for a corporate client
  • 1 x event photo shoot at Apple Store Ginza, plus editing in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom & export
  • 1 x video edit of EU Ambassador press conference
  • 1 x 10km relay race dressed in crazy costume (including prize winning!)
  • 1 x research trip to Akihabara for further development of LED costume
  • 2 x long training sessions for new assistant in video editing
  • 1 x 3 hour concept  creation session with creative partner for upcoming video
  • 1 x video proposal creation for big video job scheduled for next Spring
  • Multiple client and friend’s tech support emails dealt with
  • Podcast recorded & blog updated
  • 78 substantial emails sent related to all sorts of projects
  • Several sub-projects of TEDxTokyo worked on
  • Multiple client websites updated
  • Consulting related to 2 social media campaigns

Hmm, time for bed I think. Next client meeting in 6.5 hours from now!
