We initiate activities through the energy produced by the movement of people. Since the spread of the pandemic, a new business development is in demand. Would we be able to accommodate international artists in the near future? The pandemic seems to last longer than expected.
In such difficult times, we had an image for a new project. We encountered a young filming team from Yamanashi, who met through the shooting of Yubisaki kara, an omnibus short film series. While facing our current society, we are creating something new. As we welcome the team, we would like to present a film that is linked with Yamanashi. Luckily, the audience remain silent in movie theatres, allowing lower risks of Covid infection. Thanks to the advancements of technologies in photographic equipment, video production has been more familiar with us today. Hence, making videos and films has become more convenient. For this particular project, we could possibly have more staffs to help the team.
Many of us may be facing challenges, where changes are required to adapt to the new life. As we reflect on our current lives, we may be asking ourselves in the future, what were we thinking and what were we doing?
production by a young team who is still unknown, we would like to bring a
lively atmosphere and hope for people to be interested in the film-making
culture in Yamanashi. We hope that each member can expand one’s range of work by
collaborating with each other. Lastly, we would like to address/express how
film is composite art. This project consists of a screenwriter, drawer, actor, photographer,
musician, and more. Together, we would like to take the opportunity to help
promote Yamanashi culture and be connected with one another.
We will host the Yamanashi Short Movie Festival 2021, to keep art active in our daily lives. (Translation:Eleanor Mimura)
Self-portrait workshop”all about i” Bilingual workshop (English・日本語)
This workshop is about “ourselves”. Let’s explore about identity and how to express it. When you make your self-portrait, you want to show yourself to other. We will think and brainstorm questions like “What am I?” ”What do I want other to see me?” ”What am I constructed with?” At the end of workshop, each of participants will make original self portrait of themselves. Let’s think about the closest friend of you which is “you”, and express.
