Message from director
I produced this music video for pianist Akihito Ochi (known affectionately as Aki-chan) along with my colleague Ryosei Suzuki. Aki-chan suffers from Down syndrome. His concerts are truly wonderful. The music he plays is wholehearted and pours out of his whole being, as if to say “I love music, I love the piano.” I requested permission to produce a music video as a volunteer, having been genuinely touched by the sight of Aki-chan facing the piano and having been moved by so many of his compositions. It has ended up taking two years, but at last the work on this debut is complete. We have put everything into this production in order to purely convey Aki-chan’s world. We would like as many people as possible to see this video – by all means, please watch it. Aki-chan has made us aware of things. Thank you, Aki-chan.

life lessons


All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination, Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth.
Napoleon HillT

When we set out to change something in our life, it may seem hard to succeed at first. This is because we are not properly using one of the most helpful tools there is: our imagination. When you unlock your imagination a series of events take place:

  • You think about what you want to achieve, then focus on it
  • It is fun because in your imagination you are already there
  • You don’t have any limits, so you can mentally go where you want
  • It is easy and deliberate
  • Nothing is impossible, you just let your mind create the life you want
  • You begin to believe that your goal is possible
  • The belief in achieving your goal makes it happenThe biggest obstacle in trying to unlock your imagination is allowing yourself to mentally believe you are already there, when in reality, you are not. This is where we put up walls and things get difficult. You won’t go anywhere if you can’t actually ‘see’ yourself at your goal.

 

Hand in Hand, Life without Limbs


 

Do you guys all watch this video??, I myself watch it a thousand times when I feel sad and depressed. Sometimes I never realized the tears fall, and other times I feel so blessed because God never leaved me alone. About a month ago I bought a book of Nick Vujinic calls Life without Limbs, one of the best books I have ever read. Yes … all will solve my problem if I accept and love myself first, realize that I am not perfect, nor forgive my own self sin because God has forgiven me. …I want to shine and change my life … … just hold my hand GOD

 

The Little Match Girl


If you’re feeling sad, don’t watch this movie. Only a strong heart and who able suppress  sorrow and tears to be watching it. Actually a story like this in the real world is already usual we meet, how human indifference towards his fellow man. The world is already filled with egotism, hypocrisy, and assume everything is fine. In the human heart will definitely want things as imaginable the orphan girl who sells matches, which want the warmth, comfort, respect, and ultimately lamented. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky to get one, there should be mightily to get it but even though it’s been attempted, life is still not in favour of her, even just to eat one slice of bread. At least moral values in this movie teaches human relationships which may’ve rarely found in entertainment for children today, as captalisme has already claimed the innocence of children in this world
