Bruce from Open Mind needed a short product commercial he's been promoting for a small wireless printer called Phone Print. The overall concept was to keep it short and simple, all under 1min. We storyboarded the overall benefits of the item and came up with a game plan on how we would tell the story. Overall it only took a day to film and we really enjoyed trying out some new plugins for our Final Cut Pro software. Overall th...

A good partner of ours from Open-Mind Japan gave us a private contract for a company called Junno Designs based in Fukuoka Japan. They were in need of a few videos that could demo their furniture and lineup of fine wood food waxes. The backbone of their company has a very interesting story, they repurpose old extinct rain forest lumber that is from run down buildings. The structures are being demolished or destroyed so they ar...

A couple of our friends who own local English school businesses asked if we could create videos for their well established locations. Each school had unique video requests, one was for a grand opening while the other was to create a promotional video which could be placed on their website. The overall feeling was to create a cinematic experience and to make each place look like it was a fun school to study at. Overall I believ...

A few months ago we were commissioned to create a cinematic style movie for Heartland Japan - A tour company based in Tokyo. It's basically a unique business venture as they want to create hiking tours for devastated rural areas that were struck with earthquakes and landslides back in 2016. For us here at StellarJay Films it's an opportunity we embrace as this combination of DSLR and drones makes it a  perfect match. T...

Honestly I really thought the other video about Kumamoto was better but I guess Hidden Paradise was a more fun upbeat kind of video which people preferred. The voting was actually done by the guests of the event. Each video was shown on a screen and you could submit your vote. So really it was a video that was well received by everybody from the event. That makes me feel pretty good knowing it wasn't just from 2-3 judges b...

Every year we create a video for Sensei Nishimura's karate tournament which usually brings around 800-1000 hopeful students. The atmosphere is amazing as everyone is pumped to jump into battle. Also many international teams are now joining from the likes of USA, Canada, India and Italy just to name a few. The event itself is extremely long as it goes from 7am to 7pm thus making it a full on production to film. Overall this yea...

Recently the students of APU in Beppu City wanted to learn to how to fly drones along with some of the basic rules of Japan. As we all know it can be very difficult to know every aspect of the industry and where you can fly. Overall we spent about 90 min going over basic Japanese drone laws with a very informative powerpoint slideshow. Most of the students were avid photography enthusiasts so naturally they wanted to learn eve...

Recently I started collaborating with the president of the JDA and the possibilities of working with their organization on future projects. Welll, now it's official I'll be creating videos and offering support on our newly created English platforms like Youtube and Facebook. Our goal will be education of Japanese drone laws and helping those who are looking for English support direct from the source. Also there are talks of cr...

Well what a week this has been, my video got chosen as the best in "Category B - Fukuoka city." Honestly, I was very surprised as the competition had some great choices but in the end I guess the upbeat, high action style pulled out the win. For me, it was the music that really set the tone as many of the shots were dynamic which narrated the story.  We started from the mountains of Aburayama, flowing down local pristine river...
