Night Walker + MRA Trailer!

Well, troops I am happy to declare the film Night Walker has officially commenced with the opening meeting that was held last night in Akabane (Tokyo). This meeting was a General Information Night where the basic ideas and pre-production work for the movie were explained and discussed to some extent. The meeting was a long one around 2 hours and we had 8 people in attendance (thank you all for taking the time!). The outline to the meeting (what was talked about) can be seen here (below this text) and generally I thought the meeting went rather well and was well prepared with a number handouts given to the crew and cast. The next meeting will be on the 21st (Sun) of August @ 6pm (location to be advised but central tokyo, this time!). This will be the first brainstorming session for the movie so I would appreciate a good attendance (remember 24 hours notice if you can't attend, PLEASE!).

Amyway, we all had a little surprise at the end of the meeting because we were all lucky enough to see the long awaited MRA TRAILER! Follow this link (cut and paste into browser) and you too can see what a bunch of movie geeks can do in their spare time!


Have fun and as always watch out for the cookie monster!
