About

  • Hiroshi Nakajima

    Hiroshi Nakajima

    Director / Writer / Producer

    Hiroshi Nakajima was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. During his childhood, numerous weekend trips to the theater with his father to watch Hollywood movies inspired Hiroshi to eventually write his own story at the mere age of 11. Upon graduating high school, Hiroshi enrolled at Orange Coast College as a film student. He later graduated in 2003 from San Francisco State University with a degree in Cinema. With his degree in hand and the experience as a writer and director of a couple of student films, Hiroshi soon joined a local San Francisco film production company as a screenwriter. During his time there, he continued to pen feature length screenplays, which received critical acclaim at various screenplay festivals and competitions. In 2007, Hiroshi moved to Los Angeles to shoot his short film, "Lily." It was both a candidate and winner for numerous "Best Short Film" awards at festivals around the world.

    In 2010, Hiroshi completed a feature version of "Lily" (89 min – Drama - USA), which told a semi autobiographical story of a young American screenwriter’s struggle to succeed while trying to maintain a serious relationship with his girlfriend. Hiroshi’s first feature film received numerous awards at international film festivals. In the following April of 2011, "Lily" debuted in theaters across his native country of Japan where it was met with positive reviews as an original dramatic story and put Hiroshi in the spotlight as a Japanese director who had successfully filmed an American movie.

    The success of “Lily” landed Hiroshi the opportunity to make his second feature film through a US and Japanese production partnership consisting of FOX, NTT Plala, and I-Cast, Inc. His original Science Fiction script, “The Secret Children” (103 min – Sci-Fi – USA-Japan), depicts a future government’s oppression against a clone race and how the clones, against all odds, find a way to survive. In January of 2013, Hiroshi directed and filmed “The Secret Children” in Los Angeles, and production was completed by October of the same year. Its theatrical release is scheduled for the spring of 2014.
