    First, the soundtrack was composed according along the theme "Life". Nobumichi Asai and Shingo Abe was inspired by the music and then made face mapping work. Aya Sato designed choreography. TOKYO completed the project by making the video work.

    The music brought Asai the image of “the radioactive.” The destructive force of the radioactive could cause “death,” “suffering,” and “sorrow.” And “prayers” could overcome them. These subjects infuse AYABAMBI’s powerful performance. Their performance crushes and conquer black tears, skulls and the Heart Sutra. We built up the concept during the production and Abe designed animation for face mapping.

    There was a big challenge in technical aspects. We realized the new mapping system that allows us to follow intense performances by using the latest 1,000 fps projector, DynaFlash(*1) and a super speed sensor. It is very new and it had not been done before. Projected images become part of their skin and they transform their faces.

    At the beginning of our development, there was an issue, AYABAMBI would loose freedom of performances if we accelerated the tracking speed. Asai, Yoshimura (WOW), Lecturer Watanabe and Teshima (EXVISION) explored how we could keep the tracking speed securing the freedom of performances, taking three months of trial and error to reduce a few milliseconds. And we finally developed this system(*2).

    *1 “DynaFlash” is developed jointly by Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory, the University of Tokyo and is commercialized by Tokyo Electron Device Limited.

    *2 For tracking hands, we use the dynamic projection mapping technology developed by Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory, the University of Tokyo. For tracking faces, we use the face mapping technology developed by the visual design studio, WOW inc.

  2. »Nothing lasts, everything is impermanent. Like these flowers fade, our life will fade.« That's the meaning of the prayer in the beginning.

    In November we travelled to Sri Lanka to shoot this video for a charity organization. PINA Organisation helps people obtain access to clean drinking water.

    I always took clean water for granted. But in Sri Lanka only 30% of the people have access to good drinking water. More than 20,000 people have died of chronic kidney disease over the last 20 years. Up to 400,000 suffer from the disease. One of the reasons are agrochemicals which poison the groundwater. The affected ones are very often poor farmer families from rural areas. We visited the opening ceremony of a new water plant in the small village Minneriya. The plant was, amongst others, funded by the company feedback communication. It will supply a school of 800 students and 1.500 villagers with 10.000 liters per day.

    Initiated, produced and supported by feedback communication

  3. Directed by Addison Post

    Music Composed by Noel Heroux

    In October 2016, while filming another project, I drove from Reno, NV to Des Moines Iowa taking mostly backroads. One of the roads I drove, was Rt. 50 in Nevada, affectionately known as the Loneliest Road in America for it’s long meandering stretches of two-lane-blacktop intersecting several mountain passes and kept company only by a few small towns.
    A few months later I traveled the Loneliest Road again, this time without a destination. I packed my camera gear with the intention of capturing a few interviews and documenting my experience while I wandered aimlessly for a week.
    William Least-Heat Moon describes the motivation for such a journey in his book Blue Highways:
    “With a nearly desperate sense of isolation and a growing suspicion that I lived in an alien land, I took to the road in search of places where change did not mean ruin and where time and men and deeds connected.”

  5. We live in a new era of intrusion. I wanted to make visible the invisible violence of the moment we are living in.
    Beware of intruders!
