Filmed over a week in Kyoto and its surrounding areas. I''ve been to Kyoto many times before and always wanted to capture the beauty of its atmosphere. The place has an mysterious feeling, with ancient temples and tranquil forests.
Scenes include the Golden Pavilion Temple, Fushimi Inari, Kiyomizu Temple, Gion, Ryoanji, Todaiji, and Arashiyama. We also made trips out to nearby Osaka, Nara, and Koyasan. Especially in the winter, the snow was beautiful in the Mount Koya world-heritage.
MYSON went to Japan in January and Febuary this year. Covering Hakuba, Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. This is Part One of what came of it. This chapter explores darkness. Stay tuned. ididitformyson.tumblr.com
In a city that never sleeps, the party never dies....
KICHIGAI is the semi autobiographical story of a real night out - or to be more precise, a blur of surreal nights out in Tokyo, mixed together with a cast of crazy characters and manga style subtitles.
Shot on 5D MkII in the Shibuya district of Tokyo on a non-existent budget, edited on Final Cut Pro 7. This is my most ambitious film to date, so any comments and feedback would be very much appreciated.
