What do I do?

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
  • Website translation for overseas client

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


Relay Races and Growth of Wild Tame Co., Ltd

The Quatro Kids and Team Atsushe


Hello world.

With life happening at the speed of a futuristic maglev train, I’m finding it tough to keep on track with documenting all that’s going on. I’m still liking AudioBoo though, I like the simplicity of it, and the lack of any need for editing.

Here’s one I recorded earlier in which I talk about today’s Ekiden (relay race), and the changes me / my company is experiencing at the moment. Below that a bunch of photos from today’s race, taken by team mate Iuchi-kun.






Receiving the special award made up on the day (I think!) – the ハッスル賞 - “Award for helping make the event even more fun for everyone”.

All in all, things are good, and I feel very fortunate.
