Taichi Kimura / 木村 太一

Taichi is a Japanese film maker based in London. He moved to England on his own to study film-making aged 12 and has lived in UK ever since. Taichi’s unusual background creates a unique visual drawing inspiration from Japanese and British culture. After 3 years at college studying film & video, he started his career as a videographer, focusing on tour documentaries for musicians. He quickly built a strong reputation for himself within the music industry and became an official videographer for many artists from different genres including Chase & Status, Professor Green and The Chemical Brothers.
Today, Taichi focuses his career as a director. His work includes a short film ‘LOST YOUTH' which he collaborated with Boiler Room on, which since its release last year has been screened by 15 different film festivals so far, including a screening at the infamous ‘Silencio’ in Paris (the private club designed by David Lynch).
His music video ‘KING’ by Grades won Best Music Video at UK Film Festival and his work is diverse and challenges a variety of genres from Japanese animation to dark narrative drama.
