The Second Annual of SEISA Olympic Entertainment Division Spotlighting the Ordinariness of Everyday Life
SEISA Olympic is a simultaneous class with the aim of giving all students a chance to shine, in which over 6,000 students from SEISA junior high and high schools nationwide gather to compete and learn from each other in more than 10 categories including sports, novels, literature, speech, music, dance, cooking, traditional competitions, relay races, and correspondence competitions.
“It's possible to have an event featuring your work on a stage with thousands of audiences, or to have a stage that is casual and set in everyday life itself."
While the Creative Division, which is held every December in a hall with a capacity of 3,000 people, features full-fledged stage performances, the Entertainment Division features works that are staged in your room, on the street, or in a small classroom under the theme “Where you are, that's the stage.” This is a new performance competition for SEISA, pursuing overwhelming professionalism and uniqueness.
Shoot and edit videos in advance in the following genres: 1) Theater 2) Comic 3) Comedy 4) YouTube 5) Radio program 6) The SEISA Take 7) Quiz and miscellaneous knowledge. Thirteen films were screened. The judges were all professionals in the art of communication, including Kazuya Amano, a professor at SEISA University, CAN Hiroyuki, a broadcaster and director, Ryota Urabe, a musician from SEISA Kyushu, and Ranri Mayama from Shinseisakuza Theater Company. Including the statement such as “Don't just satisfy yourself, satisfy others”, there were many lessons to learn from the direct comments from the professionals.
The winner (Grand Prix) were two works by Uemura, a third year student of SEISA Kokusai Highschool Okinawa. This is the second consecutive win. The quality of all the entries has been improving every year, and we could see the growth of the competition.
There are 100 different ways of success for every 100 people. SEISA will always be committed to creating new situations without being satisfied with the status quo.
The top four films selected are shown on YouTube SEISA Manabi-Channel. Please take a look.
- Grand Prix (Winner): Maki KAMIMURA (SEISA Kokusai High School Okinawa) <2nd consecutive winner>
I hope all you juniors find this helpful! First LOOKBOOK challenge! How does a 146cm tall person dress for school uniforms? I'll show you all spring, summer, fall, winter!
The only equipment is a smartphone. From shooting to editing, I did everything by myself. This video is the culmination of my last year of high school, and I have improved even more than last year!
“Tell us your own story as seen in this video."
I did reshoot 100 times per second. I created this video by myself only within TikTok. No editing, just re-shoots.
It is you to decide the title and story of this video! The video is still unfinished. It will be completed when you can make your own story from this video.
- Second Prize (Runner-up): Autumn Leaves Factory (SEISA Momiji Junior High School)
A full CG animation “Legend of Weeds" was developed by 3 students of SEISA Momiji Junior High School.
The script, CG, and voice actors all worked together to create this film. Please pay attention to the voice actors' realistic performances.
- Third Prize: SEISA Kokusai High School Hachioji Light Music Club
We produced a music video for Hump Back's "Dear Boy"! The students performed, recorded, filmed, and edited the music video, making it their own from scratch! We borrowed equipment, set up lighting, and put a lot of effort into the entire video! Enjoy our young power!
