'Tomorrow's Joe': Fight Night in Osaka


 Synopsis: This film takes a behind the scenes look at the young Japanese fighter, Hiroyuki Hisataka as he builds up to a world title-boxing match. He challenges Mexican fighter, Hugo Cazares for an official run at WBA World Super Flyweight Champion.

The film was inspired by my experience as a member of Atsumi Boxing gym and the popular Japanese manga, Tomorrow’s Joe featuring an underdog boxer. They gave me free access to capture behind the scenes and ring side footage. It was filmed on location at the Atsumi Boxing gym and the Osaka Arena. I used the DSLR Canon Kiss X4 camera and it was edited using Final Cut Pro.
