Director Asao's debut feature film revolves around the theme of  a  “Rock Paper Scissors Death Game.” In this daring venture, those defeated in the game face a spectacular explosion, turning into tiny fragments. Despite being his first foray into filmmaking, Asao funds the project personally, embracing a challenging approach by producing the entire film in English. With a cast of around 30 actors delivering lines and performances, and an additional 30 extras, the independent production showcases a remarkable level of dedication in terms of scale. Filming is set to commence in spring 2024, with plans for international film festival submissions starting in August, aiming for a summer 2025 release. Anticipate the unveiling of zFilms' inaugural creation—a project that relentlessly pursues pure entertainment.

Who Are We?

Establishing zFilms K.K. in 2019, we embarked on our journey with a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and a single 25mm lens. Starting from shooting, editing, and grading, we expanded our expertise to include graphic design, motion graphics, live streaming, CG, virtual production, AI, AR, and more. Our primary focus has been client work. However, driven by a desire to create original content and a passion for producing globally recognized creativity, we leaped from short films to the ambitious production of a feature-length film entirely in English.
