The exact moment I posted about "#Ultraman" on my Instagram (Of a SEIKO wristwatch I reeeeeeally want OMG lol), the visual arts of @miz_satoshi popped up on my IG-feed, and I am thankful to find out about his art!

Tokyo, Japan-based Satoshi "MIZ" Mizushima shoots time-lapse videos with at times using action figurines composited in, which in this particular case of Ultraman battling kaiju, with "Singapore" as the landscape!

Here are a few still shots and video to check out, and you might want to head to his Insta @miz_satoshi for more, including behind-the-scenes of how he staged and filmed his shots!

Based on the timeline of uploads, I figured these might have been taken from when he was in Singapore four years ago, when he shot "Beyond The Lion City" - a Bridal Movie, featured below.
