Dr. PROMOTIONAL VIDEO






Oricon Style published an article regarding the upcoming "Dr." promotion video. The video will be a full animation video directed by Junpei Mizusaki. Namie also chose a topnotch animation studio who spent one month making the video. The producer of the song himself, Nao'ymt, made additional sound effects for the video.

The video's main message is world peace that crosses over time and space. It takes place on a ruined Earth, in year 3000. The folly of mankind caused the destruction of the environment and mass slaughters. Namie is in stasis and is waked up by Dr. Chronos (the greek god, master of time), to deliver a message from the future to the present mankind. The experiment sends Namie in year 2200 and year 2500. Namie manages to communicate her message to a young girl on the past Earth, filled with sadness and desperate people. But will she be able to change the fate of mankind?


"Dr." will be aired on Space Shower TV on 3/12.

RELATED NEWS ON Dr. PV

Two animated incarnations of the Japanese pop star Namie Amuro will star in a music video for her "Dr." song, which ships on March 18 along with her "Wild" single. It will be Amuro's first fully animated music video. The video's story is set in the year 3000 on an Earth that has been reduced to ruins by weapons of mass destruction and environmental destruction. An animated alter-ego of Amuro is the lone survivor who wants to restore the once beautiful planet. She attempts to "convey a message of 'world peace' that transcends time" to the 21st century through a time-slip. A girl living in the present (as represented by another alter-ego of Amuro) receives that message of world peace.

Shūichi Satō is the video's creative director who is best known for his Vidal Sassoon ads in Japan. As the animation director, Junpei Mizusaki (Kouchuu Ouja Mushiking Super Battle Movie: Yami no Kaizou Kouchuu, Mardock Scramble, Princess Arete) supervised over 40 animators from several Japanese studios, including Kamikaze Douga (Dragon Quest games), Sunrise Ogikubo Studio (Akira, Steamboy), and Studio Jack (Pocket Monsters movies' backgrounds). The video lasts five minutes and 43 seconds. With their rallying cry ("compromise is death") as inspiration, the animation team finished the project in just one month.
