Las lentejas y el Destino
We’re so close to finishing the latest feature by Miguel Müller-Frank that we had the pleasure to introduce it to the characters themselves, in the very same place the film was shot.
Amongst many other reasons (
food showing the director and the photographer around, and the delights Madrid has to offer food ), these last few days in Spain were all kinds of magical.
All of our gratitude goes to the characters, who presented us with the opportunity of watching it with them. It was like watching a DVD extra where the director explains scenes and moments. Most of the assumptions I had made about some characters were, as it always is when you make judgements, mostly not right. What a great way to be reminded of how limited we humans are. A must for every documentary editor!
Stay tuned for more updates on the film!
(Untitled) Loke Lau by Yusuke Ito in LA Weekly!
Yusuke’s piece was one of the video works I had the pleasure to participate in while in LA last winter. His thesis work was also one of my favorite shows at the Art Center College of Design.
Now, it was picked as one of the five shows to watch by LA weekly. Really proud of Yusuke!

“It had a narrative that peeled away like layers of an onion – constantly surprising and wrong-footing me as to its direction. The cinematography was gorgeous too – they really managed to capture the light intensity of what I imagine a beach in Cuba looks like“.
Congratulations to the whole team!
