  • I am the writer and director of an ambitious short film which my collaborative team and I are planning on shooting in Tokyo ideally in July. The shoot will likely be between 7 to 10 days. We do have a budget available but it is limited and will need to cover everything. It is best to think of this as a low budget shoot. Once details are discussed it would be great to get a ballpark figure for estimated costs.

    We need somebody locally who can organise casting of English speaking Japanese roles, source a sound recordist, and aid us in securing all of the interior locations we will need. From what I understand a great deal of exteriors we will be able to shoot guerrilla style without having to pay permits. The crew size will be very small, so as not to be intrusive.

    Already we have several things in place, including the very talented feature DOP Eben Bolter.

    Please get in touch on here or at and I can tell you more detailed information regarding the project.
