MRA PART1: NEWS AND CURRENT EVENTS

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DONT ALREADY KNOW, AFTER WRITING/ PRODUCING AND DIRECTING 2 SHORT FILMS I WAS LUCK Y ENOUGH TO BE CHOSEN AS THE LEAD ACTOR IN A JAPANESE/ AMERICAN SHORT FILM, TITLED; MONSTER REMOVAL AGENCY (MRA).

MRA IS AN ACTION/ COMEDY ABOUT A YOUNG MAN (PAUL) WHO COMES TO JAPAN WITH HIS JAPANESE GIRLFRIEND (NAOKA) OF 4 YEARS TO START A NEW LIFE AND BEGIN THE ADVENTURE OF HIS RATHER MUNDANE LIFE! WHILE WORKING FOR HIS GIRLFRIENDS FATHERS COMPANY (AS A CONVENTIONAL SALARYMAN) HE BECOMES INTROVERTED AND BORED WITH HIS LIFE. HE TURNS INTO A RECLUSIVE GEEK WHO DOES NOTHING APART FROM WORK LONG HOURS AND STAY HOME PLAYING VIDEO GAMES AND READING COMIC BOOKS (MANGA), MUCH TO HIS GIRLFRIENDS DISSATISFACTION.

ANYWAY, TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT (IRONICALLY AS THIS IS A SHORT FILM!!) PAUL NOTICES A RATHER BIZZARE JOB ADVERTISEMENT IN THE THE JAPAN TIMES (NEWSPAPER) LOOKING FOR "MONSTER HUNTERS!". NATURALLY INQUISITIVE AND A LITTLE BEMUSED, PAUL DECIDES TO APPLY FOR THE POSITION AS A MONSTER HUNTER
AND CHANGE HIS LIFE FOREVER!


*SIDE NOTE: THIS FILM IS BEING SHOT IN TOKYO (FEB THRU MAY 2005) AND POST-PRODUCTION SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY AUGUST 2005. THIS FILM IS PART OF A TRILOGY (PART1/2/3) WHICH WILL BE FILMED OVER 3 YEARS IN TOTAL (2005~2007) AND INCLUDES BOTH ENGLISH AND JAPANESE IN THE DIALOG (SCRIPT). THE FILM ALSO INVOLVES A LOT OF MARTIAL ARTS AND FIGHT CHOREOGRAPHY WITHOUT THE USE OF WIRES (LIKE THE MATRIX USED FOR THEIR IMPRESSIVE FIGHT SCENES!).

**IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT MORE INFO ABOUT MRA, SEE SCREEN TESTS AND SAMPLE FOOTAGE OF THE MOVIE MRA PART 1 (PRE-PRODUCTION STAGE) PLEASE VISIT THE LINK www.robmoreno.com (the cameraman/ editors website).
