His history with Japan started when he was 15 years old and began taking Japanese classes. This led him to move in with a Japanese family in Nagoya for 2 months when he was just 17 years old.
Jeremy is influenced by the aesthetic of Nicolas Windin Refn and Hayao Miyazaki as well as the dialogue of Wes Anderson. Many of his other influences go beyond cinema. He usually writes, directs, shoots and edits most of his work. Sometimes he would even compose music for his projects.
