Jack Lyons ’16 was interviewed by a local paper where he works in Japan

Class of 2016

Jack Lyons, a member of the class of 2016, majored in Asian Studies with a Japanese focus. Since childhood, he has had a profound interest in Japanese culture, especially Samurai. Following this interest, Jack worked with Professor Kyoko Omori on the Japanese silent film, Orochi (1925) & Benshi artists project. For the project, Jack constructed a narrative script in English for the Japanese silent movie, Orochi, and analyzed certain aspects of the movie like its cinematography and the Japanese culture presented in the movie. In addition, Jack also helped create a documentary on the Clinton area that was used in a workshop. During the workshop, Hamilton students were able to create and recite their own Benshi script for the documentary. Jack aimed to not only further his knowledge of the Japanese language and culture through this project, but also to learn more about film and how it is created.
