Matsumoto native director Yamazaki Takashi (born 1964) makes masterful use of visual effects in such films as ‘Always: Sunset on Third Street’, ‘Space Battleship Yamato’, ‘The Eternal Zero’, ‘Destiny: The Tale of Kamakura’ and is known for images so detailed it hardly seems possible they’re digital composited, and he has also garnered high praise in the field of 3DCG animation for his works as co-director on the ‘Stand by Me Doraemon’ series. He also writes the scripts for many of his films, his directing prowess doesn’t disappoint fans of the original works, and he has been making highly entertaining movies that touch the hearts of the Japanese people.
This exhibition introduces the world of images Yamazaki Takashi has created not only through storyboards and design sketches, model miniatures crafted for filmmaking, and costumes for the performers, but also through the process of digital compositing and completed films.
Come enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at movie-making on everything from Yamazaki Takashi’s directorial debut ‘Juvenile’ to his latest work.
