Short Film Profile

Wind and Thunder

Koshu drives from his home in Tsunashima near Yokohama to Yoga where his tennis club is situated and he tells us a bit about the Tokyo region he lives in.
Koshu explains in which tradition he has chosen his Gagou (artist name). This explanation closes with some short cut-ins of tennis strokes which links his favorite sports to his favorite art: the calligraphy or hieroglyphic drawing.

Doing a series of hieroglyphic drawings titled "Fujin Raijin" (Wind and Thunder), Koshu is filling the paper with fierceful brushstrokes and he is telling us how his emphasis on calligraphy started and how his work as an creative director in an advertising company goes well together with being a calligrapher.

The work with the brush is completed by using an In, a personal sign stamp. We watch the sweat driving print of the stamp while Koshu tells us about the idea behind an sign stamp, especially the one he is using.
