Actually, as it turns out, the video taken of “Ringo Expo ’14” includes an alternate version. This alternate version consists of footage shot by a fixed camera pointed at the stage and was originally used by the crew involved to monitor the production. This type of footage is not normally released to the public, but we’re making it available as a mail-order-only DVD called ‘RINGO EXPO Professional Academic 2014.’
It’s a live cut, so of course everything is there, from the commotion before the start to the calm after it’s all over. The stage is visible from end to end on one screen, so you can see the performers perform, the stage production, and the excitement of the audience—the entire concert is right there. Both audio and video are completely uncut, so everything, even the camera shaking, is included. It is as close as you can get to being in the audience—truly “Counterattack” laid bare. Plus, it’s taken from the Fukuoka Convention Center Show on December 21, the very last stop on the tour, which makes it that much more of a treasure.
This video, just as the name suggests, is the “Professional Academic” version. If ‘Ringo Expo ’14 (Live)—Counterattack by the Woman of the Year’ could be considered the “regular” version, this is for the true fan or the especially studious. It’s “Academic” so the price is a modest 1,000 yen. Plus, if you’re a RINGOHAN member, you can pick it up for 900 yen with a special sticker to boot.
‘RINGO EXPO Professional Academic 2014.’ Upgrading the surprise and the excitement of the concert’s “regular” view.
*There is noise on the audio in parts.
*The footage is from one camera in a fixed position, so the video differs from the video releases that are normally released.
*The footage was shot with a consumer camera, so there is some halation and places that are out of focus.
Your understanding with regard to these points is appreciated.
