[REPORT] FULL HOUSE FOR OUR VERY SPECIAL EVENT - TEAM MANRIKI !!!-, ITSCOM HALL, RISE, FUTAKO-TAMAGAWA DAY 1, 06/21
Our 2nd program of the day, “TEAM MANRIKI presents THE FUTURE OF SHORT FILMS”
saw a packed house for this screening & talk event.
TEAM MANRIKI is a creative group made up of multi-talents in film, music & stage.
- TAKUMI SAITOH acts, directs & photographs.
- NAGAO is one of Japan’s top comedians & actor & writer.
- YASUHIKO SHIMIZU is a director of music videos & major brand & company commercials.
- NOBUAKI KANEKO is a rock drummer, soundtrack creator & actor.
They got together to make 3 short film, all based on NAGANO’S skits with the aim of making a
feature to be released next year.
The 3 shorts are surreal, strange, cool, funny & altogether unique. They told the audience that they
pretty much intersected by chance & things just happen to connect properly among them to cause a chemical reaction & a creative team was born.
A very fun & interesting event.
Their feature “MANRIKI,” due to drop in 2019!
