Some crappy photos

Post by Jim Ballard » Sun Aug 09, 2009 9:11 am

I didn't want to post any of these at the time for fear of having ass sued, but I figure now the show is about two years old and TPC are only interested in raping the ULTRA GALAXY franchise...

Image
This is the table where I "acted". The light was cool; it changed patterns every time you pressed it. The continuity guy was probably sweating like hell all the time we were there. I was the only idiot who tasted the drink.

Image
Guys checkin' the monitor. In the background they were projecting what turned out to be the end credits of the series. We didn't realise this at the time and were making fun of how stupid the club was for playing such a thing.

Image
The set at lunch time. Everyone fucked off. I went upstairs and discovered one of the other extras was a woman who had been in a bunch of Godzilla movies I used to drool over as a kid. She thought this was an episode of Kamen Rider.

Image
This is Hashimoto-san. He's a still photographer. He said he's been working on the Ultra series since the time of ULTRAMAN TIGA.

Image
This is Tomohito, or "Tom". He plays Agent K. He's a nice guy. I met up with him again last year along with some guy from some show I never watched ("Super Rescue Force" or something.) I think he was planning to go to America to study English.

Image
Here's Agent K again, this time with his partner Agent Jin (aka Ultraseven X)

Image
Jin and K again, pretending to be cool.

Image
Here is K running towards me. I'm not sure what his intentions were, but Jin seems to find it funny.

Image
Director Yagi checks the latest shot on the monitor. Yagi is cool. He was also the series organizer. Really the mastermind behind the whole show.

Image
Yagi setting up the next shot. This one's for episode 2, I think. They shot all the bar stuff on that same day.

Cool pics. It's pretty neat that you got to meet the main cast. A pity there's no pictures of S or of the lady in white. Thanks for sharing!

I like Rescue Force, do you happen to remember which character he played on the series?

No problem. I mean, I've been wanting to share them. They've just been sitting on my computer. But I couldn't post them at the time since studios are kind of strict over what info is released while they're promoting a new show, and I don't really want to rub anyone the wrong way. I have one shot of the lady in white's back.... kind of a pointless photo.

I remember the guy was called Kenta. I think he was the main star? He was cool too. Both Ken and Tom are aware they are ikemen and love it.

All jokes aside, nice pictures Jim. So how did you go about being able to take these behind the scenes production pics?

I was just in Japan at the time and was invited along. Only just made it; flew home 3 or 4 days later.
