Daikichi Amano is the creator of the infamous Genki films. Featuring sea creatures and insects amongst other things, these are the most creative and extreme Japanese porn/art films out there. Daikichi is also a photographer of bizarre and beautiful scenarios featuring sea creatures and insects. I am privellaged that Mr Amano could answer a few of my questions because, by his own admission, his English isnt that good.
GenkiSlave: Do you class your work as art or pornography?
Daikichi Amano: I think both which are art and photography.
GS: The first Genki-Genki film was Love by the Scalpel Dog. I see that this is not available anymore on your site. Do you regret making the film?
DA: In fact, start of Genki-Genki was scalpel dog, but, using dog is really difficult for
photo shooting, therefore, I have changed to sea creatures.
GS: Do you appreciate how your work has been embraced by the Extreme Film Community?
DA: Yes, I am really pleasure to enter the community.
GS: How did you come up with the idea of using sea creatures and insects in your work?
DA: I am always thinking care of female genital, so, I am always going to fish and creature shop and
I am thinking new idea.
GS: Do you personally find your work sexually erotic?
DA: I am making the film for those interested in these category.
GS: Have you moved away from doing Sea Creature based films or do you still plan to bring more out?
DA: I am shooting horror film right now.
GS: Which Artists and Directors have influenced you?
DA: I do not have any people of artists and directors who from influence.
