My artist statement .








Videos have a power to move someone's heart.​

I was thinking about it since I started filmmaking back in high school, and as a professional filmmaker now, I still think so.

When we watch videos, we sometimes smile, sometimes feel happy, sometimes being impressed, surprised, or we cry. Video brings variety of emotion towards people. Through my videos, I want to help making someone's precious memory more memorable or supporting someone's important first step in their life even a little bit. This may just sounds naive thinking, but I want to make videos that can motivate people, encourage something positive, make people laugh, or cry if they want to. As a filmmaker, if my videos could be someone's hope or back up, that's an honor.

Nowadays, people watch videos everywhere such as movie, TV, advertisements, SNS, etc. That is why filmmaking is really important industry right now. What I care most when I make videos is message. I always think about it on the top of my head while making videos. What kind of message do you want to tell? What kind of feeling do you want to leave the audience after the video? I always am honored every time when clients choose WAKU out of so many other options out there, I always do my best to tell the message that my clients want to tell through the videos, and I always do my best to make videos that can leave something in audience's heart even a little bit.

Because I always believe that videos have a power to move someone's heart.​
