Protagonists for a documentary film TOKYO (Tokyo)

Looking for an American expat with the need to drive a car for a paid position in a documentary film (Tokyo)

Two young German filmmakers are looking for Americans currently living in Tokyo for our first feature documentary after film school.
The subject is a humours look on globalization and how different people in different countries try to adapt to another culture.

Our candidate should:
- be relatively new in Japan (less then two years), but with the plan to live there for some time (we are not looking for tourists)
- be US-American
- be available for shooting and have time to meet us when we come for research between September and November/ December (in each case Protected content
- have as much time as possible, which you might not have, if you have a fulltime job obligation.
- not mind being filmed, even at your job, if possible. Whenever you have time off, you should be open to spent it with the team. For sure not 24/7! You can do what you normally do, but you shouldn't mind being followed by the camera.
- have enough time to take driving lessons.
- either just started taking driving lessons or is eager to get a Japanese licence out of personal or professional reasons as part of the documentary deals with traffic in Tokyo.
- be open to be filmed in their everyday life.

The driving lessons will be of course paid for as well as an appropriate remuneration for the "job" (negotiable)

The documentary is financed by German public broadcasters (ARTE and BR/ARD) and various funding bodies.
