Action movie shooting experience

What is “Chikuho Project”?

This project was planned by a town called Chikuho in Kyushu. Since the population of Chikuho town is decreasing and the town is losing its vigor, the town officials came up with this plan.

The project named “Chikuho Action Project” will reproduce the flashy action scenes you see on TV and movies. You can enjoy shooting performances live as a actor including shooting firearms, explosions from a patrol car and gun battles.You can be an action star at a filming action movies set at stations and fields.

You will be able to see the smoke and the fire column coming at the car which imitates a police car running in an open space. It’s so serious that you’ll be glued to the screen.

The official site already shows the test run.

When is the next plan?

The next project is an action scene filming activity such as a gun fight using a train in Kaneda Station of “Heisei Chikuho Railway” which runs through Chikuho! It will be held on April 21!

In Japan, where filming regulations are strict, it is very difficult to take action pictures inside stations. With the cooperation of Heisei Chikuho Railway, I was given an opportunity to experience action photography, which was not possible in Japan.
