Born in Kyoto, Japan.
I started creating short films in 2002.
Starting with the first W∞ series, "W∞ - Onomichi in Hiroshima -" being selected as a finalist in the experimental section of a film festival in Spain, and all five films in the series until 2009 were selected by film festivals around the world.
I then paused my creative activities to focus on my work as QOOV, which handles corporate projects in video production and graphic design.
In 2019, I awoke to inspiration and resumed my creative process to complete the final story of the W∞ series.
“W∞ - Heritage of Soul -", completed with a more artistic expression of images, has been praised by film festivals around the world and has been Official Selection by more than 40 film festivals, Winner 13 of them. (As of December 25, 2021)
In the future, I am interested in collaborating with companies and brands around the world. It's an exciting video expression, and it should be useful.
