Ryota Nakanishi's Professional Art Works
Like Eric Hobsbawm wrote, we can say that until independence from US imperialism is achieved, it looks as though the alliance between the national bourgeoisies and the left will continue in various fields of societies in Japan and other parts of Asia. However anti US is wrong. I have been living in this since April 2003.
True enemy is US imperialism not entire USA. It can not win without democratic American citizens' fight
against its imperialism from inside.
Furthermore, we should be friends with China and Russia. Being independent from US is critically
important for its puppets like Japan and Taiwan.
For Hong Kong, they also need to be independent from both British colonialism and US imperialism simultaneously.
The most important thing for media litelacy is that the only correct political position in capitalist societies is the working class, the class interest not any political colour created and manipulated by capitalists.
The rakugo movie (2013, Japan)
Democracy of Genre Filmmaking &
Practice of Montage Theory
Ryota's first three year project/plan in film and TV industry since 2011 to 2014. This feature film was theatrically released and screened at Egyptian Theatre Hollywood and Japan. The cinema complex United Cinema screened this film nationwide. Tsutaya also campaigned DVD release of this film nationally. Main film editor / Dialogue synchroniser is Ryota. He practiced multi-camera editing that used in US filmmaking and Soviet montage especially in the tale 'The Life Rate' which starring the best actors Takayuki Yamada, Ken Yasuda and the best actress Tsubasa Honda. The Rakugo Movie (2013, Japan) is a feature film which won the #1 best seller in DVD selling in comedy and drama in Amazon.co.jp, it also won the top best seller in general sales of DVD in Oricon Inc.'s market research in 2013. The main aim of this film practice was responding to what Sergei Eisenstein suggested Japanese filmmakers to apply in its specific culture. This is the practical response to Sergei Eisenstein. Ryota actually made it. Practice of True genre filmmaking; Hollywood's multi-camera operations and its typical match cutting that taught by Gael Chandler; applying the Three Act Structure; Anti-ArtFilm dogmatism are technically and strategically important. However, the most important thing is to create consciousness among young Japanese filmmakers on these serious issues. TUA graduates still are the most talented forces in Japan. The total gross is 470,000,000 JPY according to IMDb. Ryota's official academic aim was to achieve multi-cultural filmmaking in film content and film form. It's achieved with this project.

True Independence of Japan and
Scientific Socialism of the 21st Century
All Japan Peace and Coexistence is Japan's new type of revolutionary social movement which founded in June 2015. This was also Ryota's 2nd. three year project/plan in political and social problems since 2013 to 2016.
Ryota and the best political economist of Japan Kazuhide Uekusa had cooperated from late 2013 on five major social issues of after war colonial Japan. These major problems were accelerated by imperialist puppet Shinzo Abe regime (2012-). Such as nuclear plants; distortion of democratic constitution; TPP; huge divisions between the rich and the poor (inequality); increasing consumption tax; USFJ imperialist military bases.
Down with Abe regime is a common slogan but the true aim is to overthrow bureaucratic dictatorship that serves stealth imperialism of neo liberal foreign capitalists.
So called 25% Movement means that at least 25%
of entire voters unite against CIA funded Liberal Democrats and hypocrite religious Komeitou, Japanese people can defeat imperialist puppets and liberate Post War Japan. It needs direct democracy not the present framework of voting system of national election that only serves imperialist puppets.
We seek true independence of Japanese sovereignty! For this truly nationalist, democratic revolutionary goal, we do not only need to unite all opposition parties and democratic organisations but also they have to unite under the same strategic policies and principles we mentioned in this text above. Anti-Bureaucracy (it means rejecting bureaucratic tendency and mechanism within social movement), Anti-Imperialism, Anti-War are fundamental positions.
Ryota contributed to stabilise and conduct the new type of social movement and its most important uprising. General unification of opposition parties has been firmly materialised. This social movement has been continued since then. This is part of post World War 2 era's anti-imperialist class struggles.
"All-"dissident coalitions like "All-Okinawa"(2014-) and this "All-Japan" (2015-) have common features below:
a.It will keep independence of each political parties. It learned a lesson from The First United Front (1923-27).
b.It fits Japanese specific political conditions, election systems and difficulties. Allende regime like "Parliament" socialism is the most possible way in Japan for leftists.
c.It requires coalition government that won't outcast JCP, and can accept JCP as main government members on the common major policies among dissidents.
d. Its policies are mainly for the working class.
e. It's against any ideological dogmatism. The workers are loyal to their own class interests and identity, not to dogmatism.
f. The most important thing is that Japan needs new political party which can really represent the interests of the working class of Japan.

Conspiracy Theories of Benjamin Fulford and
Kaoru Nakamaru: The 5th. Wonder Campus (2014)
Exposing Conspiracies of Stealth Imperialism and Publishing it by Independent Media
The renowned ex-chief editor of Forbes APAC, Benjamin Fulford and conspiracy theorist Kaoru Nakamaru give audiences a special lecture about various conspiracy theories. Ryota mainly constructed the 9th. question of the 2nd. part of the entire video which published by Wonder Campus in 2014. Ryota asked Benjamin about the truth behind the Sunflower Movement in Taiwan and Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong which supposed to be backed by US State Department and its NED.
Ryota mentioned that the State Department and its Embassy in Taiwan published advertisements of TPP during Sunflower Movement to promote anti-China campaign and its neoliberalism which betray native workers and peasants. Benjamin said it must be backed by the State Department. For example, the Umbrella Movement's patrons were already disclosed by media.
Ryota is the first person to point out the truth behind the Sunflower Movement publicly in Japan via this published lecture of the most renowned 'conspiracy theorist' of Japan.

Q9: Interviewed by
TV Drama and TV Documentary
NHK E-TV Judge: TV Movie Obugyo-sama!
Part1 and Part2 (NHK, 2015-2016)
From Film to TV: Bringing Democratic Genre Film Policy to State TV Programs with Genre Stars
NHK E-TV Judge (2015-2016) features numerous crafted TV dramas from major TV productions for competition. Winner hits highest score in selected voters and influencers' judgement. It was an attempt to bring multiculturism to the state TV station program.
Ryota cooperated with the TV director Kenji Mizoguchi who is known for creating the TV series The Solitary Gourmet (TV Tokyo, 2012- 2017) to make two TV comedy dramas for the legendary samurai star Ken Matsudaira. It is not only a flesh attempt to create pure samurai genre drama in NHK, but also it is a homage to Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Western genre which both the director and his editor loved.
This is the first TV drama work of Ryota that he actually played a role, edited and assisted the entire production as an actor, professional assistant director and TV editor. For being a TV editor, the most important thing is to let the director to finalise its director's cut which based on the editor's cut. Not only film editing, but also TV editing followed this flow. This was one camera operation however Ryota had enough materials to make it like a multi-camera editing. The TV director Kenji Mizoguchi is his best corroborator in TV industry.
Editor's Cuts: TV Drama Editing of Obugyosama Part 1 and 2 by Ryota Nakanishi
Furusato Time: TV Documentary
Function of Documentary: Revitalising Local TV / Film Industries and Traditional Culture
Furusato Time (2015-2017) was a TV documentary series for J:COM, the largest cable television company in Japan.
This program introduced local features and local businessmen who decided to fight for revitalising declined local industries that wrecked by neoliberalism. And this is part of efforts of Ryota who planned to reestablish local film industries like George A. Romero in Pittsburg in the 1960s. Japan's neoliberal difficulties have been only worse year by year since 1991.
Ryota was in charge of creative special assistance as cast, assistant director and assistant editor. His expertise was fully exercised especially in location shooting in local regions throughout Japan with tight corporation of cable televisions and film commission.
Shingo Kazami Goes to Takaoka Part 1 and Part 2 were Ryota's first TV shows. And it starred the well known actor Shingo Kazami. It was cooperation among popular actor, the TV production of Fuji TV and local video companies. Ryota established the great relationships with them.
The next episodes are From Akita with Love: Kingdom of Gourmet and From Akita with Love: Beautiful Country which practiced more localised TV show making in Akita prefecture.
Akita has its vital local TV industry for its citizens. The local star Matirog is the best corroborator for the local TV documentary. Ryota and its crew and cast strode to recreate and recover the image of the lost golden era of Akita prefecture in the past.
Ryota loved Akita prefecture because its local legend, the ancient agricultural areas preserved well, and its local foods. These episodes costed the most, however they are still the best ones among all episodes.
Finally Ryota reencountered with 'Namahage' the local legend which has Oni-like looks and teaches children the way of being good part of community. During the production of these TV documentary series,
Ryota actually corroborated with film commissions, and the producer authorised Ryota to have financial management rights which equal with the producer in location shooting to smoothly proceed the entire process despite many obstacles that mainly caused from different directors' uncontrollable requirements.
This popular Travel documentary became the top viewing rated popular TV program at J:COM during the era.
Moreover, its true achievement was that it proved we can establish efficient management of creative team on abuse of director and other uncontrollable situations typical in this era.
Producers can authorise assistants to be their representatives. It can prevents incidents during production.

Face to Face with Sammo Hung (2019)
Ryota's first Hong Kong film work is a video documentary ''Face to Face with Sammo Hung'' (2019) which starred the legendary Hong Kong action film star Sammo Hung and made by Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF).
He was in charge of one of interview questions about the film master who has worked with various generations of Hong Kong top film stars and film directors since the early 1960s until the present.
Ryota successfully proceeded the Cantonese conversation with the living legend on his favourite films like Mr. Vampire (1985) and Encounters of the Spooky Kind (1980)'s creative inspiration.

The Largest Chinese Film Class and
Practice of Collective Publishing
2008, 2009, 2018, 236 pages (Original)
Published by Cosmos Book (HK);
Guangxi Normal University (Guangxi);
New Star Press (Shanghai)
ISBN: 978-9882-211-988-8 (HK);
All major Chinese film school students and the professors from the Greater China Region gathered together at Hong Kong Baptist University to discuss the many serious film issues in the region.
Comment: This book is made by total contributions of students from all major film schools, professors, critics. furthermore, the entire publication process was managed by film students and professors democratically. As the result, this book is unique among all film books that it provides various questions and improvisations from multiple angles. It is impossible in journalists and media work. This is the real team work and collectivist spirit of filmmaking. Of course, critics and journalists are hostile to this kind of collective publishing project done by both students and professors.

NEWS & PHOTO
Russian State Media
The respected Russian media SPUTNIK used Ryota's direct photo work on Japanese Communist Party. Although their foreign policies are almost the same with the ruling class, Japanese Communist Party's domestic policies are relatively idealistic for the working class of Japan. Its ''popular union'' strategy was and still is effective since the late 2015 but the ultimate goal of establishing popular government is still no consensus among other oppositions who are anti communists in its nature.
Ryota only trusts Russian media like RT, SPUTNIK, and thanks them for their efforts on real news globally.
