We go through Vimeo a lot. Like, almost every day. We can assure you that there is no shortage of visual montages of cities in Japan. The city tour set to an epic beat is practically a genre in and of itself. On top of that, the staff at Vimeo has an obvious affinity for videos about Japan. So, why are we featuring this one? Well, the same two reasons we featured Strain, it's really good and it's by a collaborator of ours.
So, who is the person behind this epic and loving portrait of Kyoto? Osamu Hasegawa, a filmmaker working out of Chiba City. Talking to him about this video was fantastic. He uses the same glide cam solution that we use and was able to give us some really useful hints nohow to achieve better shots (simply put, we need to lighten our upper-load buy about 60%).
You can learn more about his work over at www.osamuhasegawa.com.
