「助けて」と言う勇気

映画制作を通して

学んだことのひとつに

人に頼ることがある


人に弱みを見せるのは

格好悪いと思ったり

助けを求めて断られた時は辛いし

そもそも人に迷惑をかけたくない

ずっとそんな思いがあった


でもそれでは映画はつくれない


良いものをつくろうと思えば

どうしても人の助けが必要になる


だから日常生活では避けていた

「助けて」という言葉を

映画制作で使うようになった


もちろん断られることもあるけど

必ず助けてくれる人はいる


その時に感じた感謝(愛情)を

映画づくりに反映させるのは

もちろんだけど

自分も人助けができる人になりたい

そう思うようになってた


映画制作を通して

人に助けを求める

勇気がもてるようになった


コロナ禍で人との交流が

確実に減ってきている今

大切なコミュにケーションのひとつとして

迷惑を掛け合い助け合うのも

悪くないのではないだろうか


もちろん人に頼るだけ頼って

感謝や恩をすぐに忘れてしまう

そんな感性ではダメだけど…


人に頼られる人間になり

人に助けてもらえる人間になりたい

そうやって人との関わりを

深めていくのも大切なのではないか


最近そんなことを思う

The courage to say, "Help me."


One of the things I have learned through filmmaking

One of the things I have learned

is to rely on others.


It's not cool to show weakness

It's not cool to show weakness.

It's hard when you ask for help and they say no.

I don't want to bother people in the first place.

I've always felt that way.


But that's not the way to make a film.


If you want to make a good film

I need help from other people.


That's why I avoided saying "help" in my daily life.

I've started to use the word "help"

I've started to use it in filmmaking.


Of course, there are times when people refuse to help me.

But there are always people who are willing to help.


The gratitude (love) I felt at that time

I try to reflect it in my filmmaking.

Of course, I want to be a person who can help others.

I also want to become someone who can help others

That's what I've come to think.


Through filmmaking

I have the courage to ask for help.

I got the courage to ask for help.


Because of the Corona disaster

is steadily decreasing due to the Corona disaster.

One of the most important ways to communicate is to help each other

It is not a bad idea to help each other

It's not a bad idea to help each other


Of course, if we rely on others as much as we rely on ourselves

And forget about gratitude and debt of gratitude

But it's no good to have that kind of sensitivity...


Be a person who can be depended on by others

I want to be a person who can be helped by others.

It is important to deepen your relationship with people

I think it is important to deepen our relationship with others


That's what I've been thinking lately.
