I saw this video a while back and I just love the tone of it. Very simple, a unique view of all these people together yet alone. A close up and personal glimpse of a small portion of their day.
The effect of sending the camera around a Tokyo sushi restaurant via the conveyor, coupled with the music on this video, is quite a beautiful thing.
Dennis Wheatley and Stefan McClean were sitting in a Tokyo sushi bar when they had an idea to make this impromptu film:
“We were sitting in this sushi bar pondering how best to set up a camera to film things all by itself whilst we were in Tokyo. Take our hands out of the equation… let the camera have its own journey. What we loved about watching this film back was the space that the camera was able to enter.. extremely personal and scrutinizing but not too lingering.”
The music is titled “Lost in a Moment” by Shrift.
