When Ryan Kaplan of Small Moments Studios called me about volunteering our services for an event that would raise money for the crisis in Japan, I just had to do it. As a Japanese American, it’s been heart breaking watching the news about what has happened in Japan. Thankfully, all of my family and relatives are safe, but there are so many people suffering and I felt that this was the least I could do to help out. The event featured a wide range of great performers and it was clear everyone had a great time. I was positively moved to see all the people get together for this cause. All told, this even raised about $2,000. It was an honor to shoot it with Ryan, Keith, and Steve!
