    The whimsical journey of a mysterious vending machine dwelling creature who explores the shadowy corners of Tokyo after dark. Kaiju (怪獣 kai-jū) is a Japanese word that means "strange beast," but often translated in English as "monster". We'd love to connect with anybody who enjoyed the film, and encourage you to send our little kaiju out into the big bad world. Continue to check back on the official Facebook page for updates on the film and a limited toy release! And then go download the addictive song adapted from the Kaiju theme, 'Sleepwalking' by Papi Kiki. http://soundcloud.com/papikiki/sleepwalking http://www.littlekaijumovie.com http://www.facebook.com/littlekaiju CREDITS.

      • The Fate of Old Beijing: CH. 2 - David vs. Goliath

        David vs. Goliath, is part two of the three-part series "The Fate of Old Beijing: The Vanishing Hutongs." In the face of China’s rapid modernization, the world’s most populous country is struggling to preserve its cultural heritage, and nowhere is this more visible than in the ancient alleyways and courtyards of Beijing. Once a ubiquitous feature of Beijing, the hutongs are more than simply housing; they are actually a way of life. Entire families live in single, crowded courtyards, often with no bathrooms. Yet despite the lack of modern amenities, the communal aspect to life within the hutongs means that few want to leave – even as their neighbourhoods are being demolished and redeveloped. UNESCO estimates that more than 88 percent of the city’s old residential quarters are already gone, most torn down in the last three decades. In a three-part series, filmmakers Jonah Kessel and Kit Gillet explore the vanishing world of Beijing’s hutongs, the realities of life within the narrow streets, and the future for these culturally-irreplaceable areas of China’s capital. CHAPTER TWO: While hutong residents may not have the easiest lives, few want to leave the streets and alleyways they have long called home. However, with China’s current legal system offering few avenues of discourse it is hard for residents to save their homes after they have been slated for demolition. Some are torn down to make way for new subway lines but, increasingly, a large number are simply torn down to be replaced by large high rise buildings that primarily benefit the land developers and local officials.

CHAPTER THREE: If Beijing’s hutong areas are to be retained in one form or another, decisions need to be made about whether to invest money in keeping the original structures or replacing them with replicas built in the same style but offering modern amenities – a move that many suggest destroys the soul of the buildings. While for former hutong residents forced or happily leaving their old homes, a new way of life beckons.

                  Many of us living in Dubai don't really pay attention to what the city has to offer. There are hundreds of hidden streets with stories untold. This is my first short project (which I have been asked to expand on) on a little street called 'Hindi Lane'. To many of you it may not even seem like a place in Dubai. To some, it's a place you might have been to on several occasions. To those curious ones abroad - It's true that Dubai is all about the extravagance, but don't be fooled, if you look hard enough and in the right places, you'll come across some culture too.

                    Shot some footage of NYC in April. Didn't really plan anything ahead of time. As I was going through the footage, I was listening to Pink Floyd; there was these sound bites in there, and that's how the idea took shape (you might need to turn your volume up). My wife hated it :) You can see stills from the video on Flickr: http://bit.ly/cr58XH
