As a filmmaker, I was interested in the fact that people have different memories and images of music. This is my first attempt at creating a music piece.
I hadn’t had many experiences of enthusiastically discussing a film with my friends. Maybe it was because I was afraid that I could see the difference between myself and the other person, for example, if they didn’t like something I thought was good, or if they liked something I didn’t like.
For that reason, I would often say, “That was interesting,” even if it was something I didn’t like.
In the meantime, I thought it would be interesting to watch an image and talk about old memories and get to know each other, rather than just like or dislike it. I began to wonder.
This is the film I shot with that question in mind.
It is a story I want to share through this film.
This summer I couldn’t go anywhere I wanted to go. Watching the goldfish swimming comfortably in the terrarium, memories of the past came flooding back to me.
I remember swimming in the pools and oceans of distant cities when I was a child.
Watching the goldfish swim made me want to talk to my grandmother, who I hadn’t seen in a while. After seeing it, I sent her a birthday present.
There are probably more ways to enjoy the summer months than ever before.
I hope that people who watch my videos will feel a sense of nostalgia and a moment of peace.
