    "WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES" / Feature Film

    (2019)(120min)

    One sunny day, four young strangers—Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura—meet by chance at a crematorium. They have all recently lost their parents, but none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies, devoid of all emotion. Alone in the world at 13 years old with no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, our protagonists dress themselves in scraps from a garbage dump, track down musical instruments, and decide to form a kick-ass band. They call themselves LITTLE ZOMBIES. This is a story about their quest to retrieve their ability to feel.

    “ Reconstruction CG ” T.M.Revolution 2020 / Commercial Film

    (2016)(0:54)
    A trailer video for T.M.Revolution’s Best Of album.
    I’d been tempted by accident reconstruction videos, so I used the occasion to try the technique out.
    It turns out you can calmly reconstruct both normal and abnormal events; it’s insane.

    “MUSCLE STEP” NATURE DANGER GANG / Music Video

    (2016)(4:45)
    NDG is my favourite band in the world. This is a solo piece by Harutaro, one of the main MCs.
    We did some project mapping on Mr. Kuroda, a porn star’s chest, made Harutaro’s torso huge through CG and got him to destroy Tokyo.
    We went wild.

    “Parallel Sign” LAMA / Music Video

    (2012)(4:36)
    LAMA is a new band by SUPERCAR’s Koji Nakamura/Miki Furukawa and NUMBER GIRL‘s Hisako Tabuchi.
    This is their music video, filmed entirely on location in Indonesia.
    Based on about 100 scenes which I had previously thought up, we went along with the atmosphere on set.
    It includes samples from some of my influences, such as Nejishiki, Thomas the Tank Engine and Juzo Itami’s films.
