About

Asumi Sako is a Tokyo-based cinematographer.

AS was born and raised in Yokohama, Japan. She was first drawn to filmmaking whilst she created a documentary for her sociology class in England, UK and realised the potential of film as a storytelling. After completing her degree, AS studied film in earnest in Toronto, Canada. It was cinematography that became her passion amongst a diverse range of subjects at film school. Upon returning to Japan, AS started her professional career as an assistant camera primarily on narrative productions. Eager to gain experience abroad, AS relocated to Sydney, Australia and began her career as a cinematographer as well as an assistant camera. AS returned to Japan in 2016 and has continued to work on both domestic Japanese productions and international productions.
