    Hi, I'm a Canadian film maker living on Shikoku Island for the next couple of years.  I'm interested in making a documentary film about the pilgrimage walk and am looking for people to be part of it.  I would like the film to be a story about following a few people through their experience on the pilgrimage.  It doesn't matter if you're walking the whole thing or just part of it.  It would require a short interview that will be edited down (don't worry I'll only use the good stuff) and for me to get some footage of you at a few temples and on the walk between temples.  The film will be cinematic and visually beautiful, told more through images than words.  It's not being broadcast on TV or anything as of yet and I am doing it as hobby while living in Japan.  I would like to put it on YouTube as a series, each episode would be about a few of the Temples.  If it was to go really well maybe instead of YouTube I'd see if Netflix or NHK would air it.  If anyone is interested in this please contact me.  This will be an ongoing project throughout 2019 - 2021

    I have usually worked in advertising so this project will be a bit different for me.  If anyone would like to see my website and example of my work, https://8lettername.wixsite.com/matthall


    Thanks,

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    I am very new to this forum.  I will be walking in September (around 24th) but I will start at the temple number 7, I did 22 temples last year and this year I want to finish the whole 88 temples.  I am interested in doing interview with you.

    Hi Praorn,

    Thanks for the reply! Sounds good, lets keep in touch. You can email me at 8lettername@gmail.com if you'd like. There's a chance I won't be here at the end of Sept though (still not sure). It's my Grandma's 100th Birthday on Sept 29 and I'm going to fly out to go visit her, I just haven't decided which day I leave.

    Cheers,

    Matt
