Starting as an Associate Producer for Shochiku Company, a Japanese film studio in Tokyo, Mahoko left her native Japan and joined Radium, California in 2001.
Combining her production background with the postproduction knowledge she gained at Radium, Mahoko, as a staff editor until 2009, worked closely with clients including Target, Toyota, Mervyn’s, HP, Sega and more. Understanding the technical elements and process, Mahoko collaborates her talents intensely with motion graphics artists, making her especially strong in graphics/effects-heavy spots.
Mahoko also worked as an editor on a documentary called “Call + Response” which succeeded in theaters throughout the country and abroad. Her recent contribution to several PSAs for the Illinois State Foster Care system have raised their success rate to the highest in years, while also garnering Mahoko her first Telly Award.
