Hey Guys and Gals,
Any Redusers that know me should also know that I live in Japan and have been quite active in the post disaster recovery effort, doing what I know best - making movies.
Last year we shot a documentary (on Canon and Nikons) about a Tsunami devastated town called Ishinomaki and the struggles that ensued there.
Our next effort was shot on my Epic in the prefecture of Fukushima, called "Women of Fukushima". After 1 week of shooting and over 14 hours of footage travelling all around the prefecture interviewing these strong women, one of whom is a "Nuclear Refugee", having lived a few kilometers away from Daichi when it blew up we believe we have a powerful movie on our hands. We even (rather stupidly I might add) went right up to the 20KM nuclear exclusion zone driving though many miles of eerie ghost towns, and lonely figures traversing abandoned landscapes. And our geiger counter experienced peak earth readings of 46 microsieverts, or approximately 600 times the normal level. Needless to say, I wrapped those shoes I wore in plastic and disposed of them shortly on my return to Tokyo.
We will shortly be submitting this movie to festivals, Television etc. but before we do so we are looking for a few experienced folks' valuable critical feedback on our 25 minute project to make it as powerful as we possibly can make it. To those who may be interested in helping out please post here, or message me privately and I will send you a secure password locked Vimeo link once the project is ready and up on Vimeo.
Regards from Tokyo,
