The cast and crew of 2019’s indie megahit from Japan, One Cut of the Dead, have reassembled to produce a sequel short film. One Cut of the Dead Mission: Remote was created completely remotely without meeting even once during production.
The team is back to produce a true-crime series about a serial tickler! Give One Cut of the Dead Mission: Remote a spin and read more about the short film below.
Let the cast and crew know what you think by using the hashtag #OneCutoftheDeadMissionRemote on social media.
Producers explain: “Over 300 people from all over the world participated remotely! 305 people came together in the end roll dance. We had such a wide range of applicants, from children to the elderly, not only from Japan but also from overseas such as South Korea, Canada, and Cambodia. Similarly, ‘Video of You Getting Tickled and Laughing’ were recruited on SNS, and more than 20 videos were used inside the work.
“On April 3rd, Director Ueda came up with an idea of making a movie completely remotely. The storyline was completed on the 4th, the next day. The scenario was completed on the 9th. The production was announced on the 13th. Shooting began in mid-April and all was completed by the 25th. Editing was completed only in 5 days. The film was opened to the public on May 1st.”
