MEET THE TEAM

 Makoto Kawamura
managing director, line producer

 

Makoto was born and bred in Tokyo. His love for surfing led him to live in Sydney and Johannesburg where he was inspired to pick up interest in Africa and the film industry. In 1996 he started working with Japanese crews to film overseas. With Japan becoming increasingly popular as a travel destination, he hopes to create more opportunities for foreign crews to also come to Japan. His weakest link… is heights!  

 Teruhisa Une
chief financial officer

Teruhisa, our CFO will make sure that your money is well spent! He is truly a family man, works very hard even after work hours for his loving wife and kids. Since he stays in the office, most of you may not get to meet him. But he makes all the best environment for your shoot, he is always with you at heart. A true backstage pro! 

 Manami Midorikawa 
line producer, production manager

 

Manami’s history started off as a photographer. She has enjoyed traveling and photographing around the world which led her to this career. She now dedicates herself to working with overseas locations and film crews from all over the world. She has lived in Bolivia and Greece and speaks English, Spanish, Greek and Japanese. Manami is a global all-rounder waiting to assist you with Japanese hospitality!  

 Rie Fuji 

line producer, production manager

 

Rie spent most of her early years in Fukuoka, a bustling city in southern Japan. Rie believes that people from warm places tend to be frank and open minded … like herself! She has a passion for traveling, especially enjoys visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites and rural islands. Her recent interest is to go on factory tours! She doesn’t drink so you can appoint her as your designated driver for wrap parties!  

Chiaki Kaneko
line producer, production assistant

She spent her early days in Saitama. Her backpacking experience and loves for scuba diving has driven her to go around the world. She has lived in India and Thailand, and traveled 20 plus countries - this triggered her interest to continue working with foreign visitors to Japan. Recently she is into outdoor activities such as camping and trekking. She would be happy to assist your filming both in metropolitan and nature place!  

Keimi Yamada
line producer, production assistant

Keimi’s hometown is Gifu - a center part of Japan. She spent her whole childhood in a rural village with chasing grasshoppers. With passion in Latin culture she has lived in El Salvador, working for a Japanese Embassy there! You can talk to her in Japanese, Spanish, English and basic Chinese. Keimi is all excited and ready to be a unique bridge for your film production.
