Jam by Mirai Mizue

Mirai Mizue

Another one of my memorable finds at the Anima Mundi festival is Jam by Japanese artist Mirai Mizue. The short, which can be viewed HERE, does an expert job of building up tension through a carefully orchestrated layering of sound and imagery. Although the online screen size is too small, it still communicates the unique artistic achievement of Mizue’s work.

    I saw one of his films last year at Ottawa! I loved it last year, and I can see that he has already improved greatly. This guy is going places. It’s fact.
