Filmography

Tatsu Aoki first began making films in regular 8 gage in early childhood. His biological father, Wahei Hoshino was a movie producer at Shin Toho Movie Studio in the 60’s and was the reason for Tatsu to get into small gage filmmaking. He studied experimental filmmaking at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is currently an adjunct Associate Professor at the Film, Video and New Media Department, and teaches film production and history courses. He has made many experimental short films. As much as his musical activities, Tatsu Aoki’s films are shown internationally. His super 8 diary films and experimental films with optical printing has always been the main attraction of his screenings around the world.
