Yamato Damashii Diaries
This is not a videolog pick and usually I don’t post soemthing that’s not vimeo or YouTube (Sorry on this one iPhone people), but it’s something I find so worth posting that I decided to disregard these guidelines.
The above clip is a short 15 minute documentary about former Shooto heavyweight champion Enson Inoue’s efforts to help Japenese people in the aftermath of the catastrophy. It’s also a very good example of a documentary shot on DSLR and how these cameras can level up a production like this.
Eventually I would also like to point out how this is a good example of how well made movies are amazing powerful tools that can not only entertain us, but also do good in this world:
This one helps spread the word about things we humans are fond of locking away in our hearts, but Enson found it. He talks about the fire in his heart and how he spends his last savings on helping these people but still, in return he gets something that’s worth much much more.
The filmmaker behind the camera is sports videographer Daniel Herbertson.
If people would like to contribute to the work Enson is doing, then he does accept money donated via PayPal and promises that 100% of the funds donated will go straight to those in need. Enson Inoue’s PayPal address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
