Tenmaku Cinema Chapter 7 Recap, Spoilers, and What to Expect in Chapter 8

Hajime has assembled his crew and we finally got to learn more about his team. It turns out they bring interesting talents to the table, with the filmmaking crew comprised of his friends and fellow students. Hajime’s team is laid out as the following:

  • Hajime Shinichi: Director
  • Takihiko Tenmaku: Screenwriter (or literally Ghostwriter)
  • Hinaki Kurai (stage name Himeki Kurakui): Lead Actress
  • Junnosuke Akitsu: Production Sound Mixer
  • Ryojo Bito: Key Grip
  • Aoi Shino: Costume Designer, also Hair and Makeup

The production of the film goes smoothly at first in Chapter 7, with seemingly great shots. Innovations by the team are made on-set, with clever contraptions made to execute tricky camera shots. But Hajime remains unsatisfied, and even though he does a great job even to Tenmaku’s expectations, he wishes to pull it off even more smoothly.

Despite timing their shoot to prevent on-set interference or foot traffic, a janitor comes by with his cart, giving Hajime an idea. He swipes the cart and in the final moments of the chapter, it hints at a moving dolly shot, whether it’s to the likes of a dolly zoom like Alfred Hitchcock, or any number of iconic directors and their tracking shots like Scorsese, Kubrick, or even Spike Lee.

We’ll have to see what he has in mind like any of the rest of the cast with the release of Tenmaku Cinema Chapter 8!
