Shaping History, Shaping Tomorrow

Tokyo is a city like no other; a sprawling metropolis that never ceases to amaze. In this video I wanted to explore the many contrasts of life in the city; between the young and the old, the traditional and the contemporary, the fast and the slow, the eastern and western influences.

This film was commissioned by Keio University for their ‘Shaping History, Shaping Tomorrow’ campaign.
