January Letter

A short film starring INORI Kirara, an actress who is in the limelight having appeared in a number of films, including a work directed by HAMAGUCHI Ryusuke. While Japanese movies shot on location tend to have poor images, a brighter telephoto lens was used in an attempt to create enriched pictures. Following the Short Shorts Film Festival, which also nominates live-action short films for the Academy Awards, it was screened at the Sapporo International Short Film Festival, Guam International Film Festival, Bayou Film Festival (Louisiana), CAMERA JAPAN Festival (Rotterdam and Amsterdam), Shorts on Tap (London), etc. Watch a teaser here

Shining Spring after Clearing Fog

Directed a documentary on a large-scale installation by contemporary artist HANAMURA Chikahiro. The installation filled a hospital atrium over 50 meters high with fog and soap bubbles. Shooting in a large hospital was extremely difficult; there were almost no precedents even for films or dramas. This is because it is necessary to consider not only aspects of hygiene but also to protect the privacy of inpatients and outpatients. With tremendous support from the artist and hospital, we performed the shoot while repeatedly making adjustments, such as strictly defining the shooting location. The result was some powerful footage containing only real doctors who worked there, along with the inpatients and outpatients. The installation won a number of awards, such as the Grandprix and the Nihon Keizai Shimbun Prize at the Kukan Design Award and the Creative Award at READYFOR OF THE YEAR. Also, part of the footage was broadcast in Fresh Faces on BS Asahi. Watch the film here

Discover again Kumiyama

A commercial produced by SHIMIZU Hiroshi at the request of Kumiyama Town, Kyoto. Although the work had limited freedom, with fixed music, wording, and shooting locations, there was a lot to learn from working under the producer, also actively involved in Cannes and Locarno film festivals. It was shown at movie theaters across Japan.
