Last year I got to work on an experimental narrative doc for @nowness that was about @kanhoyakushiji_kissaquo a monk that had to choose between leaving his old life in a rock band behind or taking on his parents path of becoming a monk. In the end he chose a happy medium of creating and singing music as a monk. Together we explored the ups, the downs, the confusion and the chaos of what it means to have a destiny that needs to be reckoned with. In essence, it was about fate vs. freewill. Probably one of my favorite shoots ever ft. Team suffering <<for cinema>> Here are some outtakes from the directors cut// and a couple shots that didnt make it in but were too pretty to pass on Big love to everyone that worked on this I cried when it was done Director/ Writer: Ameya @ameya.h264 DP: Victor Ivanov @ivanovvitya Photographer: Johnny Nghiem @jhonny_5 AC: Yuji Suzuki, @yujis.uzuki Earl Standerford @earlstanderford AD: Matheus Katayama @matheusvanity Prop stylist: William Baltazar @gnarwill Production Assistant: Kenji Baraki kenji_b23 Drivers: Yo, Nukutani Special thanks to: Masamune Uematsu (Kyoto Temple) @masamuneuematsu Production: Push @push.xyz EP: Kristian Kvam Hansen @krzakicks Producer: Effy Qiu @hiddenss Local Producer: Joshua Helius Noel @joshuahelius

A reel of my life I think this is the most personal/ emotional thing I’ve ever put out so I put it off for a long time but I think this is everything I’ve really wanted to express about myself for the longest time. My thoughts, my work, my worries, my hopes, my roots, my culture.. everything. Each frame in this means something to me and holds a special place in my heart. Im eternally grateful to everyone that’s loved me over the years but especially got a lot of love for myself for making it through to the other side. Im happy that I’m happy. Footage by my dad, me, my friends and commercial/ doc footage excerpts from @bnvts @smkng @ivanovvitya Edit by meee です Thank you to everyone who is in this vid, my friends, my family, my coworkers, strangers, clients, models, exs, everyone. ビッグラブ 雨夜

lil directors cut of @d4vddd - Poetic Vulgarity I had honestly the time of my life making this video and was really gassed to have teamlab to ourselves to shoot this. We had a few hours or so to get this entire thing done but it was so smooth// big ups production and cam dep for being so fast with it // also met @d4vddd 's little sister which was the highlight of this entire experience for me considering that he originally started making music in his sisters closet. // Director - Ameya @ameya.h264 Producer - Aime Okamoto @aimeantonia DP - Victor Ivanov @ivanovvitya 1st AC - Anthony Rilocapro @gucci.lunch 2nd AC - Brenden Savi @brendensavi Occasional Tripod Holder - Mike Sunda @mksnd Gaffer - Arata Ijichi @arataijichi Lighting Assistant - Jinpei Amano @jinz.co.jp PA - Yuka Arora @0.1_yu PA/Driver - Mario Stopford @poppysushi Rental - Capsule @capsule.rentals (edited)

It’s such an honor to meet the faces behind the Polaroid I-2 and to understand how every curve and every detail of the camera came to be. We worked with people in Japan, London, Taiwan and Norway both behind and on camera. Keep swiping for some of my favorite scenes and a little bts of me and Victor making a YouTube tutorial on how to shoot in 4 places.
