Yuta Okamura is an award-winning filmmaker born and raised in Japan. He now lives and works in Los Angeles.
At the age of the 3, Yuta saw Godzilla for the first time, and became fascinated with the magic of cinema. Without access to a camera, he began painting his own one-frame monster movies, which later developed into more visual storytelling through filmmaking.
He moved to the United States to study film production at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, earning his BA degree in December 2011. His short films, Waking Up and The Lost Samurai have screened at numerous festivals.
Since graduating, he has directed branded commercial films for Lenovo, Sony Computer Entertainment, Panasonic, ABC, and G-cluster.
