Born in Sendai, Japan, Ryusuke Okajima worked in post-production for five years as a commercial editor, building his editing skills.

That same year, his first piece in the United States won second place in the SBCC commercial contest. In 2009, he transferred to the International School of Motion Pictures (ISMP) in Los Angeles. He studied under Chisako Yokoyama, who was actively involved in several films, including Good Will Hunting, Gladiator, Hannibal, Until the Night, Only the Brave, Casshern (US version), and Sayuri. Since graduation, Okajima has worked on numerous independent films, commercials, music videos, and introduction movies, all while creating his own original works and pursuing his dream.
