1. Took my A7s on a 2.5 week journey to Japan for photos and couldn't help but shoot video. This short comprises the little I did get on this awesome adventure.

    Music: Melody Day, by Caribou (Four Tet Remix)

    Shot on A7s at 24, 60, and 120 FPS with the Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 and Voigtlander 21mm f/4

    Darker scenes were shot in S-Log as I did not have an ND filter to shoot the brighter scenes at ISO 3200

    Graded in DaVinci Resolve.

    This is imagery from our recent trip to Japan for our forthcoming documentary feature “Princes of the Yen”. Based on a book by Professor Richard Werner, “Princes of the Yen” explores the function of Central Banks in the shaping of economic landscapes.

    It is largely set in 20th century Japan and includes an explanation of the origins of Japanese National Socialist and Military expansionist Ideology, and the economic system developed by the fascists, which the Author terms the “Total War Economy”. It was this economic order, the Author claims, which was at the heart of the “Japanese Economic Miracle”. Why did it implode at the end of the 20th Century? How was it different from our own economic system? What are the mechanisms, which lie at the core of any economic order? Can the Japanese experience provide us with an understanding of the crises in Southern Europe? Can it shed light on other historical and contemporary economic crises?

    Princes of the Yen is an Information Documentary* that reveals the role of Central Banks in the construction of the dominant contemporary religious belief of perpetual economic growth and the resulting claim of the necessity of structural economic and societal change to private ownership and universal commodification.

    A film for the modern day heretic.

    * To avoid confusion, the filmmakers would like to stress, that this is not a film about the promotion of one particular type of economic system or the political ideologies that may be historically associated with them. Its aim is to provide an understanding of the underlying fictional nature of all economic systems and their resultant order of power and privilege.
