Producing : Hello! Nice to e-meet you! by Mika Shimoeda

Mika Shimoeda

Hello! Nice to e-meet you!

I'm Mika a Japanese producer and I have a production company in Japan. I'm not good at English, but I'll do my best. I'm now making an international co-production feature film with Spanish DOP and music composer. I made friends with them at the international film festival and now we are making a work together. Life is very interesting. And, I'm looking for a co-production company and an investor. Of course, distribution company too.

I'll put a trailer for the pitch to showcase our project. Casting and shooting of the actual work is schedule for the end of this summer in Japan.

Looking forward to new learning and communications at STAGE 32. Thank you.

My opinion only. It will be an interesting Art Film which means that it will have limited market appeal - no matter how well Produced. Foreign language films with subtitles for the duration of the film are difficult to distribute in the US market.

Hi Mika! I'm sure you could find a production company in Canada or in Europe interested in making an international co-production like this one. Best of luck with your project, it looks very interesting.
