As you know, I’ve been working as a TV host and “fixer” (scheduling TV shoots) in Japan for some while. So my First Mate and I decided to set up a proper website to showcase our experience and services. Naomi Rubin is fluent in Japanese and a pro at scheduling/negotiating, making her the ideal mate to steer this ship. Her many talents included designing the handsome Pirate Basil logo!

Why hire La Carmina & The Pirates?
† We’re active participants in alternative youth subcultures: including cosplay, Goth, burlesque, LGBT, Jpop culture.
So we’ve got the insight. Connections. Professional experience. We’re experts in Japanese trends, language and business formalities.

What can we do for you?
† Japan is notoriously difficult to access and film. As local production coordinators (fixers), we’ll take care of shooting permits, logistics and negotiations.
† La Carmina is a colorful TV host, author of 3 books, and popular blogger. As an on-camera guide, she can conduct interviews and speak knowledgably about trends.
† We’ll reach out to famous designers, artists, bands and fashionistas to be in your project.
Cool hunting: we provide insight into underground cultures and trends.

    OH BOY – awesome, simply awesome. I have to say it is an adventure to start a business, but of course with each and every adventure comes risk and the opportunity of achievement.

    I wish you all the best in your journey, although it may be a course that you’re familiar with – each journey, and each destination will have something new to offer. Not only is it desirable for the entrepreneur(s) to be successful…but you have got to enjoy it.

    Confucious: You’ll never have to work a day in your life, if you love what you do for a living.

    Love it, hell I know you’ll love it! And all those future customers will as well ^_^

      It’s the best adventure, I think — building something for yourself. That Confucius quote = wise words. xoxox~
