Hi, I am Ryusuke Kobayashi. I am Japanese, 25 of age.
Every single day, I wake up and think about acting. I train imagination, meditation, senses, goes on and on and on. Simply, these are my average days. I love acting. Why? To tell you the least, it has healed my wounds from the past, it taught me how to communicate with others. It taught me to be me and never doubt my doings, feelings, my senses. It is a way of life.
Whatever I write here, Im starting to think it might look ridiculous to all of you. So I wont talk bullshit, I talk only the truths and my believes.
I am currently shooting a Web Series called "Tokyo Red" for Europe and U.S.
I have no doubt, I am going to become the first asian TOP ACTOR in the world. I cant explain to you why because you havent seen me at home. working everyday every night to perfect my movements, various accents, expressions, emotions, and I do it all in my unique way. This one, you just have to believe my words or don't. I don't know how I can explain the amount of effort and work I put into acting. But believe this. I am not afraid to compete with white actors, whoever thats out there. I carry Asia with me and I will be up there to prove "Asia is not done". My dream is to show the world what Japanese are capable of. Essentially, to raise the awareness of Asia.
But I really need your help.
In total, I need $50,000 for a year of school and rent in L.A starting next January.
I am going to raise $20,000 by myself but the rest of $30,000 is on you guys.
I will be attending New York Film Academy in L.A to learn practical work including camera and behind scenes. The reason for this school is that they have so much equipment and budget that compare to any school in Asia, the quality and the level of study you can get is extremely different. After this school I will remain in L.A to work for films as an actor. I have manager there already, everything is pretty sorted, all i need is your help to raise some funding.
Share love, share peace. The new generation is us, and we are on our way to change the world. Into the world with more love.
