As a feature of the market event we were involved in at Iwataya, Fukuoka organized by handmade online mall, 'minne',
the KBC news crew recently visited our home and studio to film us and our little 3D printer.
and they featured us in their evening news program at 6.40pm Tokyo time on May 13, 2013.
We are a little shy about showing this but we thought it might be interesting for some of you
to see the environment we work in.
Below are some of the screen shots we took of the news program on TV.
we were featured as a family!
I was saying how online business is just right for us
cos we could work on our creations and our sales while being at home and caring for our boys.
our creations were beautifully filmed and featured, thanks to the wonderful camera man.
our little 3D printer was filmed in the midst of printing a simple lotus item.
this was our set up at the department store, Iwataya.
it has been a little embarrassing to show ourselves and our private living and working environment
with such close-up shots on screen.
but we are really happy that we got chosen for the feature as it goes to show that our creations have been well received.
it has been an interesting experience and we are really thankful for it.
a dream that we are working towards right now is
to find a bigger place where we could live and work.
to have a nice little studio space as well as a space
where we could showcase our work, do workshops
and have friends and fans and customers over to see our work and how we work.
a space which we could be open about and feel less constraint and shy about. *wink
MONOCIRCUS is going to be featured on Kyushu Asahi News program on TV tomorrow evening!
KBC (Kyushu Asahi Broadcasting Co.) did an interview and film shooting with us at our little home and studio a week ago
and the interview will be featured in their news program on television at 6:30PM Tokyo time tomorrow, 14 May 2013!
The feature is mainly about the use of 3D printing technology in the making of our works
as well as the market event at IWATAYA which is currently ongoing until 21 May 2013.
We are so excited about the feature on TV but also a little nervous and embarrassed
as it is going to be the first time we will be seen talking about our work on TV with our tensed and unnatural expression!
Hope we are going to look okay ... fingers crossed,
and hope that the feature is going to bring us more visitors and patrons!
MONOCIRCUS will be featured and will have some of its most popular items sold
in a handmade market event organized by "minne",
a Japanese online shopping mall for handmade knick knacks and accessories.
The event will be held at one of the well known department stores, IWATAYA located at the city central of Fukuoka
starting from May 8th for two weeks up till May 21st.
And as part of the publicity program for the event, MONOCIRCUS has been selected to be one of the creators
that will be featured on a news program on TV later next week!
Last Friday, we just had our first shooting and interview experience right within our little home and studio along with our kids!
An update about the news feature will be reported later on on our facebook posts and newsposts so do keep a look out!
