Kyoto, Tokyo, Nara… Japan: Highlights Of Our Film (Part 3)
Because films are pictures in motion...
We wish to present some of the best moments, to the people who haven't got a chance to watch our film yet. For those who have, they would appreciate these unique instants, selected by AmnesiArt.
A first stay in Japan allowed us to discover its rich culture, its fascinating architecture and respectful people. After this deep experience, we built this project and finally made it possible thanks to a two weeks shooting between Kyoto, the cultural capital, and Tokyo, the symbol of modernity.
Through our vision, we wanted to share the special atmosphere offered by this country. We had in mind to recreate emotions we experienced, by capturing these genuine moments.
AmnesiArt comments these still frames from its film: “Japan: A Journey Between Tradition And Modernity”.
Nightlife Scene of a Maiko, Pontocho, Kyoto - JapanThe framing of this shot was decided to highlight this classical scene of Kyoto's nightlife.
Hachiko Statue in Shibuya, Tokyo - JapanWe weren't discouraged by the difficult weather to bring back aesthetic images of this symbol of Shibuya.
Nishi-Shinjuku Skyscrapers, Tokyo - JapanBy using a wide angle shot upwards, we gave the impression that Tokyo's buildings actually scrape the sky.

Kinkaku-ji, Golden Pavilion Temple, Kyoto - JapanWe chose this particular spot to surround the Golden Pavillion with trees and bring out this peaceful scenery.
