I watched your trailer and teaser for 2 Criminals. Superb! I am struck by your visual aesthetics and how completely successful you are at weaving complex thematic ideas into such a short piece through synergetic images and sounds.

2 Criminals offers a riveting study of the Unforeseen―the moment where the frenzy of human violence is fully eclipsed by the terrifying power of a natural disaster.

“Everybody loves a great Gangster movie and the fascination with Japanese pop culture is on the rise. 2 Criminals has all the ingredients for a compelling cinematic experience.”

Japanese are fascinated by crime dramas and stories of the yakuza, their version of the mafia. They also are fascinated when they see the evidence of a truly transformed life. 2 Criminals promises to deliver both.

I just watched the 2 Criminals teaser… Wow, I am extremely touched. I do look forward for the film to be completed. Some scenes took me right back to 2011 (when Japan’s disaster happened).
