We thought carefully about yesterday’s shooting, and we decided to retake. We never expected this, but eventually we were satisfied with what we shot. After that, we discussed over sequence of this scene and had another shooting. The shooting did not go very smoothly so we were getting a little flustered. But to make a good movie, we want to help each other and focus.

In the morning, we gathered at the shooting site, had a discussion and started to shoot in the afternoon. In the beginning everyone was not focused on shooting and the mentors seemed more flustered than us, so it wasn’t a good mood. But when we started shooting the most important scene, everyone got motivated and we could finally have a successful take after twelve times! It was relieving for me to have finished this important scene within today. Tomorrow, we will both shoot and edit so there is a lot of things to do. I want to focus more and have the best final day.

Finally, it is over. Today, we had a shooting at Etsuko-san’s house in the morning and then went back to Yokohama in the afternoon. We had some matters during the shooting but everyone was supportive and cooperative. While editing, we realized that the movie did not tell our core message very well, and we got lost. So we did another shooting and editing in one hour, and had it screened safely. Fourteen days felt a little short, but we did what we could do, and I really enjoyed. I am really looking forward to watching the movies made by friends all over the world!
