A must-see video by freelance art director Marek Okon, it's awesome!
The four-minute-long film explores the perspective of a female wanderer, who perceives the world in a constant state of lucid dreaming. As the film progresses from the calmness of lush greenery in the Japanese countryside to the electrifying night scenes of the Tokyo metropolis, the wanderer’s graceful movement synchronises with the atmospheric music and ethnic rhythms produced by Kalakmul.
During post-production the various upside-down scenes throughout the film were rotated or mirrored so that the viewer is not entirely certain which direction is up and which is down.
‘Three Stones’ is a self-funded production driven by the passion and creativity of a unique group of people. The female aerialist featured in the film is Maika Isogawa, who up until recently was on tour with Totem for Cirque du Soleil. The video is produced by Strategy Set, an award-winning international production and creative agency based in New Zealand and Japan. The art director, Marek Okon, is a Tokyo-based independent creative who previously worked for Wieden+Kennedy Tokyo on brands such as Nike, Spotify, and Sony. The music was produced by Kalakmul, a psychedelic dub DJ and music producer based in rural Chiba, Japan. The film was color graded by Toshiki Kamei, currently a colorist at Cutters Tokyo.
