Junji Murata, skateboarding cinematographer, in Osaka is making some fully expressive films about the rarely publicized but rich skateboarding scene in the big O (Osaka). True to the Osaka way of life they say the skate scene there is 80% jokes and 20% truth. Maybe a little exaggeration. Is there some truth in that? He captures it well in his recently released DVD “THA OSAKA VIBE” Another new release is coming soon, I’m told. Junji teaches the finer points of his art and the process on his website and blog.
