Carving the Divine is one heck of unique documentary and so is its Instagram. In addition to regular posts of Japanese Buddhist sculptures and other Buddhist arts, you will see inspirational Buddhist related quotes as well as the glimpses of the Director Yujiro Seki's filmmaking life. Yuji is essentially a visual artist and his Instagram is set up in the way that should virtually make sense. Come and join our Instagram and enjoy regular posts of Carving the Divine and The Yuji World!
Our next step is to promote Carving the Divine so that it will be taken seriously. In the 21st century, we can’t ignore the power of digital marketing and social media. Yuji will diligently work on this front with the help of an expert. This is a monthly expense and it is a challenge for a starving filmmaker to come up with that money to keep the operation going. For just the price of a cup of coffee, you can become a patron and support the future of Carving the Divine. Thank you!
