Making its theatrical premiere in Seattle after world premiering at SXSW, Big in Japan is an upbeat rock 'n roll road movie by local director (and founding member of Northwest Film Forum) John Jeffcoat (Outsourced). 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.
