2018 Independent Spirit Awards: Ten Moviemakers Share the Lessons They Learned While Making Their Nominated Films

Atsuko Hirayanagi (Director, Oh Lucy!)

The lesson is just cast right and then everything is so easy on the set. I met Shinobu , my lead actress, through a chance encounter thanks to NHK, they are like the BCC of Japan, they are a producing partner for the project. I already knew about Shinobu from a movie called Vibrator, and when she was on the list of actresses for the film I immediately said, “It’s her!” Then we met, she read the script, and the rest is history.

    Do you know of all the organizations that tried to push for a fighter union have there been, and how many still exist? Are they collaborating or competing with each other? Seems like these guys are farther along in the process than all other attempts. As an independent contractor myself, this is kind of interesting. I have no idea what the actual laws around independent contract work are, despite doing this for over 10 years 🙂
