What Inspires Me: Unforgiving Winter by Matthew Allard
Description: With the rapidly decreasing Japanese population it is the elderly that are feeling the effects. In rural areas of the country old people are left alone and isolated during Japans cold winters. With less young people schools and businesses have closed down in remote areas leaving the elderly to live in virtual ghost towns.
Filmed in Takane Village, Gifu Japan on a Canon 60D
Comment: Outstanding visuals that invoke a sense of isolation and the bitter cold apparent throughout the piece.
