About me

Hello, my name is Thomas and I am a freelance filmmaker & video editor living in Tokyo. I work in a wide range of project genres including music videos, fashion videos, short films, commercials, and corporate videos.

I enjoy working with artists, agencies or individuals that have a passion to make something great. When I am not editing I often work in production either with a crew or as a single camera shooter.

With over 15 years of filmmaking experience, I have a genuine passion for original stories and a keen eye for cinematography. If you are looking for a video editor or filmmaker, please feel free to contact me : D
