When I was a kid, I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. Reading stories, watching stories and telling stories were always what I woke up thinking about. Back then, I had no idea how this passion would influence me.
Opportunities at The Actor's Green Room in New York City allowed me to foster this passion. I've met new friends who truly nurture me as a storyteller. Uber Oracle is my fifth short film for the AGRtist Monthly Short Film Challenge and second film being directed by Renée Stork. Her vision and ability to touch us all is impossible to stay away from. I couldn't be more excited to be part of a team with such talent and same-mindedness.

In 1989 curiosity and ambition prompted Toru to leave his hometown of Osaka, Japan and settle in NYC where he was introduced to the motion picture and began to work his way up from the bottom.
While working on documentary and TV shows, he developed a passion of cinematography. The documentary genre in particular allowed him to develop his cinematic technique and to understand the artistic possibilities in analyzing a scene then lighting and composition.
Around 2009, however, looking for bigger challenge, he began the transition away from TV and documentary and into the world of commercial and narrative film.
In 2011 he debuted as a feature film cinematographer/DP with the film “Edible Soul’.“Birthday (2015)” is his second feature film along with number of short films to date.
