From Shonan! A short film collection born from the movie community in Enoden

File.15 Studio Malua “Enoshima Cinema”
Miyuki Inoue (Magcal Editorial Department)
This is a short film collection taken by unique filmmakers with the theme of Enoden and Enoshima Electric Railway Station.
What an attractive title and stage!
When it was first released at the Chigasaki Film Festival in late June, the tickets were sold out in just a few hours on the first release day.
Although it is not uncommon for the streets along Enoden to be the stage for dramas, this is the first movie based on Enoden itself. Certainly, railway companies are safety first. Careful attention is required when shooting at stations and platforms, and hurdles are high.
Under such circumstances, Enoden's understanding and cooperation were obtained because the concept of “film production closely connected to the community” advocated by Studio Malua, who is in charge of planning and operation, was in line with Enoden's philosophy.
Studio Maulua is sponsored by filmmaker and screenwriter Chihiro Yasuda. I moved to Chigasaki about two years ago in search of an environment where I was addicted to movie production and could continue to make movies freely.
“I tried to stay at a guesthouse in Kamakura for the time being, aiming for“ Shonan ”vaguely. During that time, there was a day of heavy snowfall, so I went to Inamuragasaki the next day. I think I can see it, and the local people came in. As expected, I know a lot (laughs). I wanted to make a base. ''

Yasuda, who has settled in Chigasaki, has set up a local movie community studio, Malua. The aim is “a community where people who make movies and videos and people who watch movies and videos gather to create new works”.
In 2018, we held an event to learn movies and videos at the coworking space Cigalab.
The production of “Enoshima Cinema” can be said to be a step further from there.

The director was seven filmmakers who agreed with Studio Malua, regardless of professional amateur. Based on two common themes, “Enoden” and “Connection”, he created works with high artistry.
For example, Satoshi Takahashi, the movie director who served as an overall advisor, was a teacher at Yasuda's university. Miho Yamamoto is from a scenario writer, and this is his first directorial work. Yasuda himself also directed a short film.
The focus stations are Suganuma, Shonan Kaigan Park, Enoshima, Inamuragasaki, Gokurakuji, Yuigahama and Kamakura. Although it is a sightseeing spot, Shonan, where nature is abundant and relaxed, seems to be dramatic and picturesque wherever you take it.

Of course, it's not really that simple. The shooting time is 1-2 hours in the early morning so as not to inconvenience people in the area using Enoden. The lack of hands helped each other and also used crowdfunding to secure funds.
Everything for a movie we want to make!

“Because it was premised to produce each one freely, it would be a lie to say that there was no anxiety whether it would finally be formed as a single movie. While each insist on individuality, we are proud that the quality of a single movie was also suitable for theatrical release. ''
Since it is set in Enoden station, which is rooted as a part of life, I hope local people will watch it first. With the idea that if you look at a familiar city from a different point of view, you will see another charm and you may like the city more.

The idea of Studio Malua is not limited to producing highly authorial films.
Establish a guest house to create an environment where members can stay overnight and concentrate on productionYeah.
I want to have the function of an artist residence where foreign artists stay.
In the future, I would like to create a base in Shonan that members can use as an atelier.
Yasuda's dream has just begun.
