    Here's my entry. Sorry for poor quality audio because I was using audio from Spotify when filming it & I was using a cheap Xiaomi phone. But they only need the video don't them? ;)

    Actually I didn't appear on the video, it as a plush toy of mascot of 2018 Asian Games, Bhinbhin The Bird who lipsync in a remaining mural of the event near the venue. Actually there're 2 other mascots, Atung The Deer & Kaka The Rhino but their plushies were already sold out when I came to the official merchandise shop and no longer manufactured. :(

    Please notify me if they really put my entry tho I didn't appear on the video, I just played the plushies when filmed it. I did everything in the video on my own. ;)

    Also, I hope they also read the caption because it contains a message from Indonesia to the people of the world! :blush:

    About #lipsyncngt48

    Do I need to record & sing all along the song, or just the reff only?

    Because there's video duration limit at instagram

    There's no deadline for the project as the official account project said on Instagram Story

    I think you haven't to insert the mp3 song to your video

    How about to play the song while recording the video?

    Well, actually any music app will keep running when Instagram video recorder is running too. You can try it on your own. If it doesn't probably you need to update your Instagram app.
    I'm not skilled in video editing & everything on the video I made on my own. Hope they understand it and they've seen my entry. My entry was featured on Yuka's Instastory. I believe they only need the video as they're gonna use the HD audio from themselves. Meanwhile, some claimed that their entries were taken down b y Sony for copyright infringement. So my entry was better because I was using original audio,

    BTW, first, Sakamichi Squad Surabaya ikutan juga lah, jaminan waro. wwwwww

    Sorry for speaking my & Firstky mother tongue.

    I think so, they only need the video. The use of hashtag just to make their job to collect the video easier

    Unfortunately I don't live there anymore now. So I can't do that with my friends there.

    So somehow the page itself and even Ogi liked my video (even though it was "blocked") and now a few hours ago i got a message from Instagram that it got unblocked, as did the other entries i'm guessing. Sasuga NGT management.

    As announced in advance by the director of the short movies himself, Yamakashi Koyama, here on this tweet, all three parts (Izumi chapter, Sono chapter, Fumika chapter, titled after the respective protagonist's point of view) of the Kenkyuusei mini-drama, which was included as a bonus in the "Sekai no Hito he" DVD, are now available for watching on NGT's official YouTube channel for the next 48 hours.

    https://twitter.com/official_NGT48/status/1058348526474686464

    Also, a small promotional campaign was launched along with it, where fans are once again invited to submit their impressions on Twitter along with the tag #ngt48研究生shortmovie完全版 ("NGT48 Kenkyuusei Short Movie Full Edition"). Although I imagine that the campaign is only open to Japanese residents, five out of them will be selected to receive for a prize a BluRay box signed by the three Kenkyuusei protagonists as well as the movie director.

    ---
    Anyway, without further ado, here's the link to the video:
    [​IMG]
    (original video now unavailable)
    Dailymotion mirror (likely won't be up for long either, but here you go): https://www.dailymotion.com/video/k3ga6vY6OlR7yKsfQnP

    While on topic, I also thought it fit to write down a little plot synopsis that I prepared, made from patching together some random notes of mine, to better understand the context. It should be noted that this "Full version" has all the scenes from the three short parts combined together into a single short movie following a chronological order (such as for example merging every protagonist's opening, and ending, scenes into one sequence), so for those who have watched it already, it's going to be a different experience from doing so in the original three-parts format.
    The movie begins with a dance rehearsals scene, during which we are presented to Sono (Hagiri Runa) and Izumi (Takahashi Nanami). Noticing that Izumi is spacing out and not paying attention to the activities of the club that she's supposed to oversee, Sono snaps out and reproaches her, saying that without her watching, the group won't understand if they are doing it correctly.

    After the school class is over, Izumi and one of her friends are on their way back home when her friend ask Izumi if she has any plans in mind to go to the Nagaoka fireworks show, and it is at this point that Izumi reveals for the first time she won't be able to attend the school's cultural festival, much to her friend's dismayed surprise.

    Cut to various scenes of members revolving indirectly around Izumi's situation.
    Sitting around a bar table outdoor, Sono's friends remark to her about how angry she got before, to the point that it startled even the first-year students in the room, while pointing out that she used to be such close friends with Izumi in the past. At the game center, other members bring up the rumor that Izumi is actually leaving for Tokyo to become an idol, hence why according to them Sono got so angry at her. Other students sitting on a lawn discuss how they heard Izumi will leave by next week, based on a report from some friends who saw Izumi have a consultation with the teachers, and so they counclude that they'll need to organize a sendoff party of sorts for her as quickly as possible.
    Meanwhile, we see Izumi herself is back at home, and all the while her mother is discussing on the phone with someone else about what arrangements to make for Izumi, she runs inside her room to let out her frustration with a long scream.

    In another school scene, we see Sono as she looks out of the window and see Izumi as she practices dancing alone in the school yard. Afterwards, during a talk where presumably Sono is also present, other girls circulate the rumors that Izumi is leaving for Tokyo because she was scouted as an idol during her summer vacation there, which is seemingly why she won't be attending the school's cultural festival.
    Sono takes all of this as true, and she continues doing so until the end of the story indeed, adding a reason to her anger. We see Sono rushing inside the school corridors to where Izumi is. There, she confronts Izumi about the news that she won't be at the festival, Izumi confirms it with a quiet mumble. Sono tells how she doesn't know what the meaning of this news is, with Izumi telling that the meaning is exactly as she said, which leads to Sono openly calling Izumi irresponsible for her actions and reminding that she herself was the one who started off the project in the first place. Izumi, in her defense, replies that there's still Sono and other girls to handle it, reassuring that it may continue just as fine.
    For a while, Sono tries to stop Izumi from walking away by grabbing her by the arm, before letting her go.

    The truth is that her parents divorced and her mom is bringing her back to her grandma's place in Fukui. It appears everyone is unaware of this. In the next scene, where Izumi is sitting in front of a countryside shrine eating an ice cream with a friend next to her, the friend takes the opportunity to ask her directly if it is true that she'll be leaving school. Izumi is at first reluctant, but ultimately has to confirm it's true. The friend continues by telling how everyone is spreading wild rumors about her, about how she is allegedly doing so because of an idol job she got, at which point she decides to reveal her secret to her in private. "I'm actually moving to Fukui where my grandma lives. This is something that normally happens when your parents divorce. ...You know, it's two people who love each other that are supposed to marry. If you are going to break up in such a copout way, then don't marry in the first place, seriously. You end up forgetting even about the people you actually love.", Izumi comments in the end, with her friend replying she won't be forgetting about Izumi at least.

    In the next scene, Izumi and her mother are finishing all preparations to leave and move over to their new home, as they are seen loading the car. Izumi asks if they are ever coming back again, her mother (apparently oblivious to all the events) notes that this was a house they rented so there no way they will. This, it should be noted, was the ending of the Izumi chapter in the original short movie version, meaning that this is where the story from Izumi's point of view stops.

    In the pool scene that follows, we then see Fumika (Fujisaki Miyu) approaching Sono about her relationship with Izumi.
    Fumika asks Sono if they are on bad terms with each other; and while denying so, Sono talks about the dance club, which is in the middle of training for the upcoming festival. At this point we learn how this was originally a creation of both Sono and Izumi, and how Izumi has been losing motivation in the club and frequently skipping meetings for half a year already, which is causing displeasure and affecting the motivation of Sono as well: "When I have such things done to me, it would make me stupid to keep going on at it with joy".
    Sono is told that the other school students have decided to hold a farewell party for Izumi, that is going to take place later on the same day. The preparations for it are apparently still underway, even after Izumi has already left the city without the schoolmates knowing. There seem to be doubts among the girls as to whether Izumi will actually show up, but it's assumed this may be because Izumi wouldn't want people to think she intends to "foul her nest before leaving". Sono expresses her refusal to attend the event, but the brusque tone prompts Fumika to tell Sono not to be grumpy over the past things.

    All of this notwithstanding, the farewell party is still held anyway. While delivering the invitation notices to all other students, at last Fumika is made (indirectly) aware about the true reason for Izumi leaving, upon talking with the friend that Izumi had revealed the secret to in the first place. It appears that until last she will remain the only one to know about this, among her schoolmates.

    Cut to the final moments before the farewell party. A group of schoolmates is at Izumi's house, now empty, to deliver the notice to her as well, but after they see no one answering to the doorbell, they have no choice but to place the leaflet in the letter box and leave. Along the way, others find the icecream stick that Izumi had stuck in the ground after her talk with her friend near the shrine.
    Cut to the inside of the school gym, where the rest of the group can be seen decorating the place with festoons and balloons. It's worth pointing out how the banner spells "Tokyo", meaning that none of the girls are aware of Izumi's true reason for leaving.
    Much to everyone's surprise, even Sono decides to show up at the party. But in spite of all of this, as time passes it becomes more and more clear to every girl that Izumi herself won't be at the party held in her honor. The girls in charge of delivering the leaflets are asked if they had passed the message along, they reply they did and put the paper into the letter box, which makes the other schoolmate laugh and point out this is pretty much as if they didn't inform Izumi at all. On top of that, Izumi doesn't seem to be replying to the mail that other girls sent to her by phone. Eventually, the schoolmate has to admit that a certain someone was right in assuming that Izumi would've been gone right away.
    Sono, feeling herself called into the discussion, stands up from the supine position she was in, and break into the dance that her dance club had been training for all along.
    Several voiceovers then go on to recall the story as if it was an old memory. Sono's voiceover says, "Why at that time we started dancing? ...Now I remember, it's because Izumi was going to become an idol, and so we broke into an idol dance."
    As the group is busy dancing, they are stopped by the sound of the Nagaoka fireworks and anyone but Sono runs to the windows to see it.
    Then more voiceover follows to conclude, with each protagonist all asking similar yet at the same time different questions, when considering their viewpoints.
    Izumi: "Why didn't I say anything at that time, myself?"
    Sono: "What should I have better said at that time, myself?"
    Fumika: "Why couldn't I bring myself to say anything about it at that time, myself?"

    I think the KKS short drama deserves a comment, but I feel that's a pretty challenging one for their first acting experience, with a theme revolving on the protagonist's secrecy about her personal situation and, in turn, all the misunderstandings and conflicts arising from this. Definitely more than your average school drama, while still keeping the lightness of one, and it's nicely packed as well.
    In its original format, the three short movies required the viewer to piece together all parts of the plot into a single continuity, by looking for information and scenes that aren't provided in the other shorts. This one instead feels much more accessible, although losing a bit in terms of the "individual storytelling" style while in the process.
