A Happy New Year (screener)

Happy 2019!!

This is the perfect time to share one of Noka Productions first short films, A Happy New Year. It's a quirky story about a disgruntled Japanese exchange student spending a lame New Years in his Times Square apartment when he is suddenly visited by a noodle ghost. (Very) partially based on a true story! It proudly ran at the Alamo Drafthouse NYC theater in the "Boundless" program for the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective 10 year screening series.

We hope you enjoy!!

人体 神秘の巨大ネットワーク|NHKスペシャル

Working on NHK's largest series yet. "The Body" series, in which we look at the findings and mysteries of each body part and the amazing communication network our bodies carry.

This year we joined with NHK as their science research team for content and development. We have been traveling around the country--Boston, LA, Houston, Austin, Louisville, Atlanta, Duhram, etc.--interviewing notable doctors and scientists, asking for the right to share their secret "new knowledge" on TV. The depth and breadth of science research that this program takes on is impressive, unlike no other, and we are honored to be a part of it.

The series has started to air in Japan and will continue for 8 episodes until spring of 2018. Release in Europe and US will follow.

体の中は驚くほど美しく、騒がしい。あなたは知っているだろうか?体の中で、あらゆる臓器や細胞が、ダイナミックな情報交換を繰り広げていることを。

It's been a while since we've updated the rest of the world, but 2017 is a year of documentary filmmaking for us. This entire year we have been working with Japanese public broadcast NHK on multiple programs, including a large-scale science documentary series that will start airing soon! More details to come.
