“POLARIZE”  was a cross-pacific endeavor. My friends Mei and Takumi of MIRRROR wanted to craft a visual album shot in Tokyo and Los Angeles. It was awesome coordinating with the Tokyo unit, ensuring a seamless visual experience with my co-director (and role model) Kento Yamada. It was also a bucket list project getting to work with Japanese artists.
