    Two years ago, we helped organize a tribute to Koisuru Fortune Cookie that was representative of the international AKB48 fandom.



    The video even caught the attention of AKB48 itself and is now hosted on AKB48’s official Youtube page. The video was also awarded, “Best Fan Video” by AKS and was presented to NSK founder, David Liao, at the Tokyo Dome concert in 2014.

    We could not have accomplished such an amazing feat without all of you out there and it is still one of our fondest memories as a website and community.

    Let’s get together and do it again! There was an effort to recreate a video for Kokoro no Placard, but that did not pan out and we do apologize for that. This year has given us yet another opportunity to create a great video that showcases the international AKB48 fandom again. Halloween Night is a fun disco pop song and celebrates the act of dressing up in elaborate spooky costumes to dance the night away.


    So let’s dance, everybody! Put on your spookiest Halloween costume and do a disco dance to be a part of something special. All you need is a camera (and a costume if you have one). Pick a location, make sure you (and other participants) are visible, and hit record! Remember to have a good time! Feel free to record anything between a short segment to a full blown dance cover! We will do our best to include as many people and as much as possible.

    When you’ve recorded your video, upload it to a site like Dropbox or Google Drive and send the link to contact@newschoolkaidan.com with the subject: Halloween Night. Include your name(s), location, and what part of the video you are covering!




    The Samantha Thavasa version is a good example to learn from. It’s about 3 minutes long and breaks out scenes by choreography.

    The deadline is October 24th, 11:59pm PDT.

    EDIT:

    THE DEADLINE IS NOW OCTOBER 30th, 23:59 PDT


    Tips:

    • Record extra footage before and after your dance, hitting record and waiting 2 seconds is safe
    • Make sure you have good lighting, unless you’re in a scary room!
    • See if you can find comrades in your area to do the dance with!
    • Try to film the video in an area that is representative of your area/country! (e.g. if you're in France, filming in front of the Eiffel Tower)
    • Wear a Halloween-themed costume
    • Use AKB48’s tutorial to learn the dance!
    • Feel further inspired by the staff version and other versions out there
    • HAVE FUN!
    Spread the word! This is open to anyone and everyone!
