From the 20th until the 28th of September B&H were assisting Canadian documentary makers Tony Coleman and Margaret Meagher while they were Tokyo filming for their feature ukulele documentary called MIGHTY UKE
They have been all over the world interviewing and capturing the spirit of the ukulele with their cameras, and we first met them in NYC earlier this year...
The film will include a soundtrack scored by James Hill
Honey guided, translated and arranged interviews... and Bosko carried bags!
Oh, he did a little filming too... and we were interviewed for the film as well!
Tony and Margie are both lovely people, and it was a delight and also very interesting to be involved in this production...
B&H might even escape the cutting-room floor!
They had a busy schedule, interviewing Jake Shimabukuro, Mr. Kamatetsu, Kuricorder Quartet, Shigeto Takahashi, Shu-san, Ukulele Afternoon, Daisy Dobuyuki, Gensblue and more!
The film is due for release next year...
Edit: The official website is MightyUkeMovie.com, , now live...
In the meantime, you can watch this TV segment from their time in Hawaii
Here's Tony and Margie with DAISY DOBUYUKI at Bar Hikoroku (click "see more" above for more photos)
