Earlier this year, MISOSound worked with director Ken Ochiai (Half Kenneth and Blood Ties, both sound designed by MISO) on Frog in the Well, a short film shot in Japan about a journey of self discovery from the country’s northernmost to southernmost cities.
Over 16,000 still photographs and 8 hours of footage were edited down into the 15-minute short, which is enjoying a very successful festival run all around the world.
Frog in the Well received the Minister’s Award at the Short Shorts festival in Tokyo (the largest short film festival in Japan). It also recently received the Special Jury Award at the Miami Short Film Festival and the Crystal Heart Award at the Heartland Film Festival, among others.
Ken is currently shooting Miyuki’s Wind Bell in Japan, which MISO will sound design in 2011.
