I first visited Tokyo nearly 10 years ago and was swept away by its futuristic society steeped in ancient culture. The beautiful mix of new and old still entrance me today. We filmed for 2 weeks to capture that stark beauty in HD. As we visited during the New Year, we were lucky to attend the “dezuiri” sumo ring-entering ceremony, which you’ll see in the opening shot. We also captured “yumi hajime” (first archery practice of the year) as well as “hatsumode” (first shrine visit of the year) at Asakusa.
On the technical side, we shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and Sony A65. The 5D was mounted on a Glidecam HD-2000 with the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G lens for the flying shots. The Sony A65 was shot with the Zeiss 24mm f/2 and Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 lenses.
