Shot in Kyoto, Osaka & Kobe, Japan, ‘I Need You Now’ features a paper airplane with a message of love written for its target. Directed by Mogcat, the young man folds the love letter into a paper airplane & hurls in the air, hoping it finds his love.
The paper airplane begins its hopeful journey for ‘her’. It navigates crowds by the thousands, skips past planes, trains & automobiles & ventures in an arcade & music store, amongst other places.
Pennan & Mogcat looked forward to uncovering attractive backdrops. Luckily, Osaka is full of bright lights & unique settings that only exist in Japan. The pair filmed on the roof of the highest spot in town. They captured a glass escalator 550 feet above the ground. The duo took for the tallest Ferris Wheel & timed their shots within the ride’s big circle. They went underground for scenes in the Osaka subway system & filmed in the halls of an infamous ‘love hotel’ (ie; you can rent the room by the hour). Waived off by security guards & watched warily by security cameras, it was a non-stop adventure from start to finish.
& as day gives way to night, the paper airplane discovers its destination & lands at the feet of the girl for whom it was sent. As she opens the note, it reveals the title of the song & message of the author; ‘I Need You Now’!
Other Fun Facts:
-2010 was the hottest summer on record in Japan since 1946
-Osaka recorded the hottest temperatures within Japan during the shooting of the video
-2 Ferris Wheels were used in the video, 1 in Kobe & 1 in Osaka
-3 locations were used; Kyoto, Kobe & Osaka
