FAQ

About Application

Q

Does "Multilingual Artists" mean that I cannot apply if I can't speak several foreign languages?

A

"Multilingual" leads to the idea of having to be able to speak 3+ languages.
However, you can enter the audition if you can speak Japanese in addition to any other language.

Q

"My _________ is at the conversational level.
Can I still apply even when I’m hesitant about my pronunciation?

A

Yes, you can. Your foreign language proficiency can be at a conversational level at this moment. We will arrange a program for you to improve your foreign language.Therefore, we are targeting artists who have used a foreign language, have taken foreign language classes, or are now in class for a foreign language.

Q

My first language is __________ (not Japanese). Can I still apply?

A

Yes, you can. Should you be selected, we will arrange a program for you to improve your Japanese.

Q

"Can the other language (in addition to Japanese) be any language?
The foreign language that I can speak seems unnecessary in Japanese show business…

A

It can be any language.

Q

Can I send other promotional materials such as photos or sound links besides
the ones stated on the application?

A

The preliminary audition includes only the materials specified on the website.
Please enter the audition process as instructed.

Q

Do photos and videos have to be taken by a professional or at a studio?

A

The quality of the photos and videos will not affect our judgment. We will even accept cell phone photos! So don't worry. Just note that your appeal might get lost if your image is dark and fuzzy, or if your voice is hard to hear. So try to find a location with good lighting, take a clear image, and speak strongly.

Q

When you say "above the waist shot," what are you looking for?

A

A photo that clearly shows your face is necessary, and we'd ideally like to see from the top of your head down to your chest.

Q

What kind of "full-length shot" are you looking for?

A

"With the full-length shot, we prefer a normal photo of you standing and facing the camera, rather than you striking a pose.
With both photos, please wear simple clothing so we can see the true you. We are more interested in who you are than what you wear."

Q

Can I wear makeup?

A

We prefer audition footage with no makeup, but if you choose to wear cosmetics, we suggest light makeup/a natural look. Also, if you wear glasses, please take them off when shooting.
