Japanese director Show Yanagisawa has signed to RSA Films for representation in the UK and Europe (excluding France). With his signature abstract approach to filmmaking, Show is renowned for his original award-winning global campaigns.
Show’s acclaimed spots include the mind-bending reverse transformation ‘High School Girl’ and mixed media short ‘The Party Bus’ for Shiseido. The subversion of ‘High School Girl’ received widespread recognition with millions of views, a Cannes Lion Gold, and further awards from D&AD, the One Show, Andy Awards, and the Clios.
For his 2017 Playstation ‘Gravity Cat,’ spot, Show literally turned the world upside-down. The ground-breaking promotion won One Show, D&AD, and Andy Awards Golds, and seven Cannes Lions awards, with Adweek calling it 'the best ad you haven’t seen'.
“It’s rare to see a reel where each spot is so uniquely crafted” said RSA global MD Kai-Lu Hsiung. “It’s a standout body of work and I’m so excited about finding the right project for Show.”
Show will continue to be repped by Division in Paris and Prettybird in the US.
