Beginning in 2016 over the course of three years, I worked under contract with Virgin Earth Japan, a production company in Tokyo.
Nissan was one of their big clients and I had been employed at their offices to help bring to life a YouTube channel project that was still in its early stages. I was part of an eight person video production crew (that grew significantly over time), and together we produced unique promotional videos featuring vehicle launches, interviews with executives and car designers, and on site coverage and content creation for the Tokyo Motor Show and Auto China.
There were countless exciting marketing campaigns and projects, most notably the GT-R (Nissan’s flagship super-car). Nissan also had a full in-house studio for PR and internal messaging which was in use weekly. The position was a highlight of my career to say the least, and probably one of the most exhilarating positions I’ve held, being that I got to visit different parts of Japan and travel to other parts of Asia to work on projects with amazing crew members. The following are select projects that I was highly involved in (and proud of), either as a shooter, or lead in post-production editing and finishing.
