Cool SNEAKER FANS for Foot Locker Film - 05-12-2017, 11:07 AM


I hope this post is in the right place.

I'm a film-maker and I've been approached by Foot Locker to make a mini-documentary for their Generations series. They're looking for stories about families of 'Sneakerheads'; you don't have to have a huge collection of shoes, but definitely something interesting to say about why you love sneakers, your first pair, any athletes or celebrities that inspire you (e.g. Jordan), etc etc.

I'm very keen to find some people from Japan.

You don't have to be an actual family, there just needs to be a bit of an age gap between the 2 subjects. Could be a teenage girl and her oldest brother (large family), or a boy and his sports coach, for example. So long as the older person plays a role in the life of the younger, and of course you both share a passion for sneaker culture. What they're trying to show is that there might be a generation gap when it comes to taste in music, clothes, etc, but sneakers are a unifying force that crosses generations.

The films will be around 3-5 minutes long, and shown worldwide.
We aim to offer some payment, depending on final budget/location.

Please get in touch if you think you might be right.
OR if someone knows a good Japanese forum for sneakers/fashion then I'd be very grateful!

Many thanks!

There is a mook (magazine + book:not periodical but looks like magazine) "Sneaker Fan Book"

And I found a personal WEB site about Sneaker

I hope these help you.
