Events!


I had to quit videotaping at around 7:30. It was just too dark to get any decent videos after that time. So I missed the nebula floats and whatever else there was then. BTW. These are all taken with my new Canon FS100 camcorder. No moving parts. Everything is recorded to SD cards. It takes up to an 8GB card which is what I use. I record at best quality so I can get 2 hours on the 8GB card.

Yeah, they didn't bring the Nebuta floats out until after it was dark, around 8pm. I think the Okinawan portion of the parade was still when it was light outside, so maybe it'll be in one of the clips you'll post up.

I really enjoyed the quality of the videos! Both the audio and video came out great. Thanks again for sharing these videos with us, Ralph. emoticon

Re: Events!


Here's the next clip. This was at about 6:50PM. The light was getting very dark. I had to boost the gain quite a bit and so the depth of field and sharpness are degrading:

I did not get the boat. It went by me so fast I had no time to react. Sorry.

Re: Events!


Thanks, Ralph! Oh no problem about the boat, it did pass by rather quickly compared to all the dancers. But I was glad to see the Okinawan dancers at the beginning of the latest clip you posted! The Okinawan traditional outfits are so colorful and unique, I enjoyed looking at them again during this latest clip.

Re: Events!


This is the end. In portions of this I pumped up the gain a little too high and it started to white out the video especially in the red and white costume group. At the end there is a brief glimpse of the Queen in profile. Again she went by too fast and it was very difficult to find and frame her in my monitor due to the darkness.

Thanks again for the great videos, Ralph! I really enjoyed watching the highlights of the parade again. emoticon

By the way, I found this information about an upcoming lecture about kabuki which also includes a performance. It's hosted by the Japan Foundation here in Los Angeles.

Backstage to Hanamichi: A Behind the Scenes Look at the Color, Magic and Drama of Kabuki class blockquote The Japan Foundation is pleased to announce our traveling Kabuki lecture and performance in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland and Denver starting in October 2009.

The Japanese American Cultural and Community Center and The Japan Foundation are pleased to present Backstage to Hanamichi - A Behind the Scenes Look at the Color, Magic and Drama of Kabuki with lead actors Nakamura Kyozo and Nakamura Matanosuke of the world-renowned Shochiku Company.
 
Kabuki with its magnificent beauty and highly refined artistry has made it a rare jewel among the great theater traditions of the world. Its actors must undergo years of rigorous training in order to master its three artistic components of music (ka), dance (bu) and drama (ki) before being allowed to perform before an audience. In order to create the magic that is seen on stage, the kabuki actor is supported backstage by a team of unseen artisans and craftsman including costumer stylists, wig masters, musicians and prop masters.
 
Backstage to Hanamichi provides the audience with a rare glimpse into the traditional world of this centuries-old theater and the painstaking preparations that leads up to an actor's grand entrance onto the hanamichi stage.
 
The lecture/performance includes performances of two kabuki dance classics: Sagi Musume (The Heron Maiden) and Shakkyo (Lion Dance), contrasting the lyrical style of the onnagata (actor specializing in female roles) with dynamic, acrobatic style in the heroic Lion Dance.
 
This program is presentedin conjunction with the 100th Anniversary Celebration of The Japan America Society of Southern California.

Re: Events!


Excellent videos, Ralph! Thank you for sharing them with us. This is the first time I've seen this parade and I enjoyed it very much.

Wow, those dancers from Okinawa were beautiful to see. What colorful and pretty costumes they worse.

Speaking of the Okinawan dancers, when the two boys are doing their swordplay, you can see a group approaching behind them and it looks like I cut them out. Not so. I actually moved them to the beginning of this clip to make it more interesting. They are the Okinawan dancers.
