I was introduced to Jordan, the effervescent subject of this Op-Doc, by a mutual friend; we met for lunch at his favorite deli in Los Angeles, where we live. That day, we waded through a getting-to-know-you conversation that somehow felt both more awkward and less awkward than most of its kind. Jordan has Asperger’s syndrome, and so he often gets pulled into his own world, one that can seem chaotic and isolated from ours. But he has learned to make deliberate choices to stay present in reality. I found myself pleasantly surprised by the quick-witted middle-aged man having lunch across from me. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of music and movies, and a strikingly clever sense of humor. So I was intrigued. The lunch became the first of many meetings we shared over the course of many months, before we started filming this Op-Doc more than a year later. Autism and Asperger’s syndrome, which is often considered a high-functioning form of autism, can manifest through a wide spectrum of symptoms; the severity and range of consequences vary depending on the individual. Sometimes these symptoms are barely noticeable, but on the other hand, around 40 percent of autistic children do not speak. (Symptoms often lessen by adulthood.) In Jordan’s case, he lives independently, holds a job, and manages his own personal finances. He has a relationship with a woman named Toni who has multiple disabilities herself. But more importantly, he is self-aware, self-accepting, caring, with a strong ability to analyze and speak about his condition with others. He understands how he is different, and he has created a coping mechanism for himself that enables him to function in society and pursue his interests in the arts as an escape when it all becomes too much for him. It is these qualities that I wanted to emphasize in this film. I wanted Jordan himself to tell us his story instead of it being formulated out of impressions from the perspective of an outsider. A strong self-advocate, Jordan argues that he is not a disabled person, but merely a person with a disability. Someone from whom those he calls “normal people” could learn. Besides, he will argue, “everybody is not completely normal” anyway. So much more research and support is needed to enable people with autism. There are no limits to what beautiful minds like Jordan’s can help us make of this world. Official Selection SXSW Film Festival 2017. Official Selection Camerimage Film Festival 2016.

About the Work From the lights of skyscrapers and homes, to the neon street lights and headlamps of cars and trains in motion… fragments of the city float like stardust out of the darkness against the curtain of the night sky. This new vision of Tokyo is explored with omnidirectional motion graphics. This work was born from ‘Beyond Motion Graphics’ ( http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics ) an internal company project at WOW aimed at exploring new possibilities for motion graphics. In using VR technology, consideration was given as to what kind of images to showcase and express as pieces of art. 作品について 夜のとばりに包まれた高層ビルの光、街頭のネオン、電車や道行く車のヘッドライトから家々が湛える暮らしの灯りまで、暗闇から現れる星屑のような街の断片を浮遊しながら、東京という都市の新たなビジョンへと至る、全天球型のモーショングラフィックス。 本作は、モーショングラフィックスの新たな可能性を問うWOWの社内プロジェクト「Beyond Motion Graphics」( http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics )から誕生。VRの技術的側面に加え、それによって切り拓かれるべき映像=アートとしての表現性に注目した。 Staff Art Director / Designer:Nakazi Takuma, Moriwaki Daisuke, Kudo Kaoru Designer:Miyajima Tsutomu, Kojima Kazunori, Makino Shigeru, Sasaki Takuma, Kitabatake Ryo, Takagishi Hiroshi, Tanaka Kenji, Horai Misaki

Months of craft, ideas and styling have gone into our latest self-initiated project, developed and hand made at Trizz, the creative animation studio out of Barcelona known for its artful directing, design and animation on commercials. “Save Me” is a new music video that touches the soul and essence of a young boys inner creative battles and is scored with heart felt music (soon to be independently released out of Portland). The boy protagonist, Rafa, lives in the world of a sensitive, young country kid who is overloaded with imagination and confronted with the possibilities of self-expression and technology. Intentionally the core story is shaped with a naïve simplicity and hints at the places where inspiration evolves. “Save Me” started off as a 5 seconds test project. Trizz director and co-founder Oriol Puig was drawn to the musician's song, called him up for a chat which ended up triggering a 4 minute original film to the music. The design concept of mixed media, with an emphasis on photo realistic rendering, was integral to deepening the story mood. Starting with the boy character Rafa, who was modelled and animated in 3d to look like an older technique of hand made claymation, our team then built the miniature house out of wood and mini tiles and lots of glue and nestled it all within a real forest - little plants from the local garden centre that provided the set for capturing real filmed backgrounds. With the 3d animation completed, our illustrator then drew and animated the 2d “interactive sky” effects and finally everything was rendered together and composed into the master film. Visually and musically, this story speaks of the creative process in all of us - and shows that sometimes during the discovery for implementing an idea, that there are waves of inspiration, frustration, anger and surprise. In the end there is a very positive outcome, scaling a personal edge we also learn something new about ourselves.
