I first want to start saying that this is a very nice way to get in
touch people interested in a certain group. I am shooting a samurai
film for my senior project at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
I need to find actors, costumes, set props, and people who know how
to use the samurai sword properly. The story is based in the late
1600's. The Tokugawa Shogunate has banned christianity, and our
protagonist happens to be one. I will not be using armor, or castles,
or horses. Sobasically I'm creating a war scene. The set areas are
very simple. Does anyone know where I can find such things, and is
there an SCA group in Georgia that focuses on feudal Japan?
