Tom Sajewski - Director & Cinematographer
I am a director and director of photography for fiction and documentary film projects.
Currently, I develop “Shinto: The Way of The Kami” film universe, which will consist of several short and medium length documentary films, and possibly feature-length documentary film in future. This collection of films will focus on describing Shinto – the Japanese philosophy of life. Each film – video art, short online film, film for festivals and film for television – is aimed at different audience.
My film, “Paralysis” (2017), has been officially selected for inclusion in film festivals about 60 times and has won 15 awards, including Best Film, Best Cinematography, and Special Mention. For “Shinto: Musashi-Itsukaichi Festival” (2019), I received Best Theme, Best Concept and Fan Award.
I am interested in technological advancements, but at the same time I am fascinated by nature and human stories. I try to tell them using modern film techniques.
