ISHINOMAKI Film Project
Jimmy Sakurai message for supporters for Ishinomaki
Ivan Kovak and Jeffrey Jousan, the team members of Jimmy Sakurai Documentary Film directed by Peter Michael Dowd, are raising money to support their Documentary Filmmaking Course and Music Video and Documentary Short Film Festival in Ishinomaki, Japan, an area devastated by the earthquake and Tsunami on March 11th, 2011. Jeffrey and Ivan have worked closely with local people right after the Tohoku earthquake and have produced a number of documentaries broadcasted by TV. They are trying to support the people of Ishinomaki by providing a chance for their possibilities with creating a film. As I know myself having been impressed by movies and music all through my life and knowing the joy of playing music, I would like to cheer for this project that Ishinomaki people will discover their own creative abilities and get the force to go forward.This will be really an incredible opportunity of testifying the power of entertainment!
