Empowering Japan with Entertainment, while choosing the best for the West!
Tokyo Bay Films Entertainment, Inc. is a Tokyo based production company that acts as a guide into Japanese (sub)culture(s) for foreign audiences. We do this for China with our Chinese online TV channel: Riyu TV, and for the West with The White Ship Initiative and CultureSHOCK Japan.
It is tough to impossible for local Japanese talent, cast, and creators to have a break-out success in the West, while we believe the Western market could benefit from the raw energy of the Japanese filmmakers.
Therefore, The White Ship Initiative's mission is to discover and develop Japanese talent, cast, and creators -diamonds in the rough- and work with them to produce Japanese movies with their unique style, infused with solid Western stoytelling geared towards Western audiences, so they can showcase their talent to have a chance to get discovered outside of Japan.
In short: We choose the BEST for the WEST to develop PEARLS for the WORLD!
Our long term strategy is to establish our label CultureSHOCK Japan as an wild and exciting Japan-based international horror brand: Easily digestible Japanese on-screen insanity! Fall in love with the madness!
With our films, Western and International audiences can experience Japanese horror and (sub)cultural elements with a more familiar Western narrative, which brings them closer to the culture with a more intense and personal experience.
