battleshipIn the movie, a modern day Japanese Self Defense Force warship joins the U.S. Navy in a battle to defend the earth from aliens. I had the pleasure of working as a researcher for both the Art Dept. and the Wardrobe Dept. using my knowledge of the Japanese Navy in order to help create authentic JMSDF uniforms and interior Japanese sets. The movie is set in current day so I contacted friends in Japan who were actual serving members of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force for information on the correct uniforms, insignia, ranks. I don't want to spoil anything so that's all I will say for now. The shirt and hat are my crew swag.
