Japanese movie star and singer Masaki Suda shared a new music video to accompany his latest single called “Last Scene”. The CD for the track, written by Huwie Ishizaki, Suda’s collaborator with hits like “Sayonara Elegy” and “Niji,” was released on Wednesday (November 24).
“Last Scene” is the theme song for the currently airing TBS drama Sinking Japan: Those of Hope, based on the classic 1973 disaster novel by Japanese author Sakyo Komatsu. The song is about finding hope in the midst of an invisible crisis and continuing to believe without giving up.
The video was directed by Kyotaro Hayashi, the visual artist responsible for special music videos by many J-pop artists including Suda’s “Machigaisagashi” “Fushigi” by Gen Hoshino and “Mr.Children” this is my love. ”
The monochrome image for “Last Scene” captures Suda performing the song outdoors in bad weather conditions that the artist and director both acknowledge as poor weather conditions, depicting the theme of the song. with a deep blue color.
Suda shared, “The song “Last Scene” is about hope and ideal leadership. “Video is like a photograph, like a picture, like the future, like the past, dreamlike, raw and mysterious.”
Hayashi said he was inspired by old designs for the clip. “Masaki said he wanted it to be a beautiful blue fantasy movie,” the director recalls. “Blueprints are one of the oldest forms of copying and have been used on many occasions. I think the beautiful texture of indigo and the character Masaki Suda looking at us and forward will be enough to convey the fantasies he describes and the emotions behind the lyrics. ”
