A couple of weeks ago we were given the privilege to meet the author/artist Takashi Tanemori and were able to connect with his wisdom and life journey to attain a peaceful heart after going through the tragic Hiroshima Bombing. After losing almost everything in his youth in this event, we learned about the powers of harmony over hatred from this hero of forgiveness, within ourselves and to spread to each and all of mankind.
We decided to quickly make a documentary during the few hours he visited to show the world his words that leave a substantial call in our lives. I didn't know much about the rule of thirds, B-roll, and much of a documentary's basic rules, being a first attempt at the documentary style, but we were still able to capture the essence and power of this man's colossal journey. I hope you all enjoy it and help give constructive feedback.
