監督メッセージ
ピアニスト越智章仁くん(アキちゃん)のミュージックビデオを同僚の鈴木くんと手がけました。アキちゃんはダウン症のかたです。彼のコンサートは本当に素晴らしい。一心不乱に、そして、全身から溢れ出す「音楽が好き、ピアノが好き」という空気。僕は純粋にピアノに向かうアキちゃんに心を打たれて、そして、彼の作曲したたくさんの曲に感動してボランティアでミュージックビデオの制作を申し出ました。2年近くかけてしまいましたがようやく完成してお披露目です。できるだけ、アキちゃんの世界が純粋に届くように心を込めてつくりました。是非、ご覧ください。できるだけ多くの方にみていただきたいです。僕らはアキちゃんになにかを気付かせてもらえます。アキちゃん、ありがとう。

Message from director
I produced this music video for pianist Akihito Ochi (known affectionately as Aki-chan) along with my colleague Ryosei Suzuki. Aki-chan suffers from Down syndrome. His concerts are truly wonderful. The music he plays is wholehearted and pours out of his whole being, as if to say “I love music, I love the piano.” I requested permission to produce a music video as a volunteer, having been genuinely touched by the sight of Aki-chan facing the piano and having been moved by so many of his compositions. It has ended up taking two years, but at last the work on this debut is complete. We have put everything into this production in order to purely convey Aki-chan's world. We would like as many people as possible to see this video – by all means, please watch it. Aki-chan has made us aware of things. Thank you, Aki-chan.
