Thank you very much, ELEVEN ARTS! for inviting me to the “Uzumasa Limelight” Premiere. I enjoyed this movie very much! Huge congrats for a director, Ken Ochiai! and huge congrats to lead actors, Seizo Fukumoto & Chihiro Yamamoto. Even though, it was their first time to play a leading role, I personally think, they did such a great job! Please check this movie out everyone! It is a good movie! The message I got from this movie was so universal and It will touch your heart.
Now, Uzumasa Limelight is in consideration for the Golden Globes for Foreign Language Films! This movie is the only film from Japan. I means something, right!?
Day 1: Call time was 4am, and drove 1 hour and half to the location. After we parked, we hiked another 20 mins. It was hard, but worthy it. We got great shots. Thank you very much, Takahisa Shiraishi! for going through this journey with me!
Yes, yes, yes! We did it. We finished “Dango Samurai Episode 2″!!! For us, this is the beginning and we still have a lot to learn, but we did our best! and our challenge still continues. This is a little accomplishment for me and I feel good about expressing my passion and creativity. I am enjoying this challenge. I also want to say “Thank you very much” for everybody who involved in this project. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hope you can enjoy “Dango Samurai Episode 2″!!!
