Takafumi, also known as Takcom™ is a Tokyo based independent motion director, designer and animator.
Currently focused on making experimental video art works and VJing/ live video performance.
He graduated from the art department of cinema at Nihon University in 2002 and since then, has been working for both commercial and artsitic projects, constantly challenging existent boundaries, through his collaborations with several cutting-edge musicians at cultural events and nightclub live performances.
By using the various techniques such as mixing pre-recorded sources and handmade (or keyframed) animations with generative materials, Tak is on a constant quest for the universal visual language, based on new ethics.
His works were highly praised by legendary experimental film maker Toshio Matsumoto while in college.
Now, they have been screened at international festivals, galleries and online publications around the world
including OneDotZero, Pictoplasma, Rojo-Nova, Portable FF,E.M.A.F., DOTMOV, Stash Magazine, Nowness, among others.
