Happy New Year!! 明けましておめでとうございます☆

We can hardly believe that a full year has passed since we began filming! A lot of exciting things have happened for us in 2010.  In review,  we first began filming with David and the Oi family. In the summer, we then started filming with our two additional participants Ed and the newbie hafu. We had a number of successful fundraisers in Tokyo, Nagoya, and Kyoto and as result we’ve been able to cover much of our initial production expenses. Thank you!!

We were written up in three publications- Japan Times, Metropolis magazine and CNNgo and as the word-spread about our project,  we’ve received tremendous support from people volunteering their time and skills with the film. As a result we released our teaser which is spreading throughout the interwebs. We are now nearing completion on filming David and the Oi Family this month and will continue with our other three stories through the summer. All of this wouldn’t have been possible with you!

Now that it’s 2011, we are excited to move towards the completion of the film. We are still looking for our final participant who is of Asian-mix, so if you are interested or know of anyone please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.   We also have a lot of goodies in-store for you in 2011 so if you haven’t already, don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter to receive our latest information or follow us on twitter and facebook. Thank you again for you support thus far! 今年もよろしくお願い致します!

Lots of love,

Hafu Film Team
