Matsumoto Kiyoshi, a local chain of beauty stores in Japan, has released their game of sorts, Ikemen Beauty Salon, where all of the 7 characters are voiced by none other than Sugita Tomokazu. LOL

The 7 characters recommend 7 different products from MatsuKiyo, and when you buy what the guys recommend, you get a special pass code to unlock the CGs and voice packs for that character.

Learn more about it on their official site.

I’ve posted the voice sample above, and in order, they are:

Manaka Kei

Tsutsui Minato

Mochida Sakutarou

Tokunaga Rei

Kiryuu Seiichirou

Yoshino Nao

Shiratori Joshua

Everyone is Sugita and nothing hurts. /shot

I edited the timing/continuity on these 2 gifs and accidentally created an ode to Dylan O'Brien and his dancing skills.

Who is Lord Moran?

I’m pretty sure I figured out who the actor is for Lord Moran in the Empty Hearse. His name doesn’t appear in the credits and they don’t mention him by name in the commentary. It has been bugging me. 

But now I think it is this guy named David:

Yeah, I know, I know but those are the only two adult pictures of the guy I could find on the internet and the photos are at least 10 years old. He’s a writer and only did a bit of theater back in the day. His parents were both actors but it seems like he’s kinda a private person. His IMDb page doesn’t even have a photo.

So why do I think it is him? Well let’s compare Moran to pictures of David’s dad. There are lots of pictures of David’s dad on the internet. 

(Pay close attention to ear and nose structure. The philtrum is identical too.)

Moran:

David’s Dad:

Moran:

David’s Dad:

Moran:

David’s Dad:

Moran:

David’s Dad:

Wait….

….

……

Be honest.

How many of you didn’t figure out who David’s dad was until the picture of Granada Holmes?

Anyway, this is Moran, portrayed by David:

And this is David’s Dad, Jeremy Brett:

Edit: Go here for further information.

Nothing more deceptive...

A rambling meta about filming techniques and Sherlock.

Note: I asked for a Beta to help clean this up but got none so my bad writing is the fault of THE ENTIRE INTERNET and not me. obviously. 

How they tell us the Story

The narrator in television/film is different from a narrator in novels. A novel’s narrator is usually obvious. You learn to identify the narrator in middle school. You learn terms for popular formats like ‘third-person omniscient’ or ‘fixed subjective narrator.’ In written fiction the author can provide characters inner thoughts in a first person narrative or third person. Exposition through internal monologue is easy. Any changes in narrator or POV tend to have clear breaks. A Song of Ice and Fire uses chapter breaks and labels them with the character whose perspective we’re following. We expect that level of clarity from books.

With film, the cameras hold the narrator. Continuous first person narration is impossible to maintain. There are protagonists but the camera flits about following the story. Most stories are told with a barely limited omniscient narrator. We’re shown plot developments that the protagonists are not shown and we observe regular dramatic irony. In any given scene it can be hard to identify a character with the narrative POV because sometimes the writer/filmmaker hasn’t picked a single character’s POV.  A non-specific narrator makes it easy for the writers to show us -the audience- what’s happening and keeps us focused on the action.
