Seeking members for Eichan Club (Film memory ‘champon’ club)

Anyone can easily create video or film these days. We’re looking for people over 70 with no experience using smartphones or digital cameras for filming, but who want to challenge themselves to something new or make friends in their community. Come join us to learn about video production from scratch, and experience, make and enjoy film together.


After learning the basics of video production from a nostalgic piece of film, participants try their hand at making a video work on the theme of memory. We’ll hold a screening at the end and let a variety of people see the works we have made!

Date / time
Saturday, October 20, 2018 — early March 2019 (11 sessions)
Predominantly public facilities in Koganei
Free (extra costs may be incurred such as travel expenses)
