started working on microPLOT in mid 2005 already, but when we concentrated on
finishing Monkey Tale we couldn’t get around wrapping up action for this
basically, this movie was pretty much done exept for the end fight when Monkey
Tale was released.
Fuku injured his foot during shooting on another small project,
we could only start shooting the action late in 2006 when we had already
finished principal shooting for Wattasakka!
to enhace certain plot aspects of the movie, Hide decided to add some
additional matte paintings for the intro and other visual FX which took
another 2 weeks.
time we were lucky enough to remain totally undisturbed during shooting on all
the different subway stations.
endfight is fairly standard modern kick-boxing, nothing fancy and rather
taking on a supporting role for the story which certainly needs some thorough
inspection in order to get your head around it...
might call it experimental if you will, but you’ll see.
who had his debut role in microPLOT, did a great job on the score with just
the right mood.
Some further points on the
the title is very
suggestive in itself - on the one hand it's a storyline that is going on
beneath the surface, it's micro-scopic if you will. Also, plot means
conspiracy which gives an idea of what this is all about.
The voice character on the

Interpretation plays a key
role in giving a certain meaning to the film, it's not for those people who
don't like to think when watching a movie.
While it's pretty difficult
to pinpoint a definitive plot, there is a rounded up storyline as a basis to
the whole story and it wasn't just a nonsense story with plot elements tied
together without purpose.
