Screenshot from Silence directed by Kurt Nishimura

Born in Hawaii and settling out in Portland, Oregon, 22 year old Kurt Nishimura who won the The Re-Animate the Decemberists Contest (and got nominated for a mtvU Woodie Award in '07) is out with a new video for Olivia Broadfield's track Silence that you can view here.

Nishimura is also working on his first full length feature film about the culture of Hawaii called Obake - and judging from the work in his music videos as well as his shorts, it should be pretty interesting.
