Creative nonfiction meets comedy, as Seattle-based band Tennis Pro play versions of themselves in their quest for fame. The guys are about to call it quits on their hometown: bored with their day jobs and unable to build a fan base in the local music scene, the trio sets out to make it big in Japan. Comedic adventures, cross-culture connections, rock concerts, and a zanily psychedelic animated sequence ensues. Jeffcoat first met Tennis Pro while shooting an episode for MTV's 5 Dollar Cover. They hit it off so well that they decided to make a feature (and many music videos) together. The guerilla-style production of Big in Japan consisted of 2 - 3 crew, with Jeffcoat both shooting and directing scenes that blend improvised and scripted dialog and escapades. Watch the Trailer at:
