All That Remains (working title) started out as an ambitious feature film project and it’s continued to grow in both scope and vision as we continually seek to do justice to this remarkable true story of faith and love amidst the horrors of war. In fact we now feel we are on course to producing a movie that will not only rival any with twenty times the budget we’ve had to work with, but will also stand as a fittingly unique and special tribute to a man once known as the Ghandi of Japan and the many victims who suffered, and continue to do so, as a result of the atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
The money we raised on our previous Indiegogo campaigns has all been put to good use, not only helping us to get to Japan to film interviews and locations in Nagasaki and Nara, but also enabling us to produce the all-important drama scenes, which are currently being shot, check out the stills and video clips in our gallery here and over on our production blog.
The reason we have decided to launch another campaign here on Indiegogo is because we need to raise just little more money to help fund the final and crucial, post production phase, the part where we edit, complete all FX shots and add sound and music tracks to the pictures. The quality of work thus far has been of such a high standard, we really need to maintain this level through the equally important post-production stages.
Watch the teaser trailer here:
All That Remains (working title) is a visionary, ground-breaking feature film based on the life of Dr.Takashi Nagai - atomic bomb survivor, peace activist and author of the best-selling book, The Bells of Nagasaki.
Takashi Nagai, a descendent of a Samurai family, a patriot and a pioneering scientist embarks upon a quest for the ultimate truth - the meaning to life and death.
It is a journey of discovery that will change his life forever. An extraordinary story of persecution, courage, faith and love unfolds as he uncovers Nagasaki’s legacy and meets his own destiny. A destiny that will unfold after the second atomic bomb to be used in warfare destroys his entire world in a blinding flash, and robs him of his beloved wife, the woman who changed him from a sceptical man of intellect, into a man of the heart.
It is now, that the scientist will be forced to turn to God, as he must become a father and a teacher, not just to his two young children, but to an orphaned nation, sick and debilitated by war.
Directed by Ian and Dominic Higgins, All That Remains will utilize state of the art special effects, live-action dramatic reconstructions and computer generated animation, alongside candid and intimate interviews with friends and family of Dr. Nagai, including his grandson Tokusaburo Nagai, Fr. Paul Glynn, author of “A Song For Nagasaki” and the Archbishop of Nagasaki, Joseph Mitsuaki Takami, and will also include testimonies from survivors of the atomic bombing, in order to take our audience on a personal journey alongside Dr. Nagai, as he embarks on his life changing quest for the ultimate truth.

What We Need & What You Get
The little bit extra we need is a minimum of $7,500. This would ensure we get the right people to do the right jobs.
In exchange for contributions, we're offering you the chance to see your name listed in the end credits – we’re even offering you the chance to become a producer on the film! We’re also giving away lots of other goodies. Your contribution will help us bring the story of a truly remarkable man, whose legacy is an incredible testament to the power of faith, to a worldwide audience, where it belongs.
If you have already purchased a perk from our previous campaign and you decide to purchase another perk of equal value or more you will be upgraded to the perk above the one you are currently on. For example if you purchased a $75 perk and you decide to purchase another $75, you will be upgraded to the $150 perk.
With each passing year, the memory of the atomic bombings of Japan fades a little more as the number of survivors gets smaller. Dr. Nagai, once hailed as the “Ghandi of Japan” is today, virtually unknown, in spite of the volume of writings he left behind. A man who experienced so much in his short life, a man who sacrificed so much, and worked so tirelessly for world peace, deserves his place alongside the great men of the 20th Century.
It’s our intention to re-introduce the story of Dr. Nagai to the world, and to keep the memory of all those who suffered in the atomic bombings alive for generations to come.
No medium is quite as powerful as film to re-ignite interest in stories long forgotten, to make them current once more, after all a good film has the power to stay with you forever.
