The team of an Indonesian film production company came to Shiga to shoot a test teaser film for a Web drama.
Why they chose Shiga as a shooting place of the Web drama was that Shiga has Lake Biwa, the biggest lake in Japan, is surrounded by mountains, and has beautiful scenery in all seasons. We proposed places which would match with the Web drama story and introduced an actress for this test shooting who would match with the cast image.
Our Indonesian staff accompanied them to guide and interpret.
