THE GREAT HAPPINESS SPACE DVD review in Canada

DVD of the feature length film I edited "The Great Happiness Space" was released in Canada. And here's a review for it!

“…Jake Clennell is a first-time director. Most of his credits are in cinematography. He and his newbie editor, Hisayo Kushida, are smart, however. They put the Great Happiness Space together in a cagey way, setting up various pedestals only to knock them down.…”

I had a little presentation in Mac store in SoHo, New York City on December 6th, 2006 as a part of Motion Picture Collective event. I showed the 5min section of “The Great Happiness Space” and talked about the process of how my director and I worked together to complete this film.
