"Spell Before Destiny" is the introduction and first section of AKISAI's musical "This is Love", a short musical film. 

Shiny, a strict and sensitive architect, and Aroma, a bright and popular product designer, meet on a new construction project. Shiny's childhood friend Eva runs the show club EVAZ. Tonight, troubled people visit Eva again. She sings a spell to cheer someone up tonight. Aroma's fiancée, Jacqueline, and Natalie, an architect, are neither friends nor directly acquainted. Each has different feelings, different lives, different everything, but they sing the same spell. 

One night, Aroma and Shiny, who have only known each other a short time, are hard at work on a new construction project. "What kind of child were you?" Aroma, who grew up in an orphanage, asked Shiny such a question. The two shared memories of their childhood. It was an irreplaceable "escape" and a time of peace for them as children. The spell they sang as children is evoked. And ”Destiny” is in motion. 

The musical number "I am your special one" was selected as the Best Original Song at the 8th Music Film Festival, and "Imagination" was a semi-finalist at the 9th Music Film Festival for Best film soundtrack on any subject. 

The song "Game Of My Life" won Best Song In A Short Film at Mokkho International Film Festival, Jul, 2023 and TRILOKA International Filmfare Awards, Oct - Nov, 2023. 

Music, directing, script writing, producing, editing, performance, singing, arranging, costume coordination, hair and makeup, etc. were all done by AKISAI.

Submitter Statement

AKISAI initially submitted the theme song for the musical "This is Love" to the songwriting contest. After reading the feedback from the judges, AKISAI realized that the judges did not understand that this duet song was about two males singing about their love for each other. That was the impetus for making the video. But there was no way she could afford to hire a musical actor, so she took on the challenge of playing both roles herself. AKISAI graduated from an acting school, in case you were wondering. 

AKISAI is a composer and filmmaker, but she does everything involved in filmmaking on her own. AKISAI's works are, so to speak, " watchable original works and scores". AKISAI continues to create, hoping that in the near future she will be able to meet great filmmakers, actors, creators, collaborators, and supporters as she works her way to producing a full-length version of "This is Love".

AKISAI's 2022 work "Destiny" - from the musical "This is Love" - consists mainly of four musical numbers chosen from the first half of AKISAI's musical "This is Love". The short musical film has been selected for over 85 awards at various film festivals, including Best Musical Film, Best Original Score, Best Soundtrack, and Best Music Video, and 66 of them as award winners. The list is still being updated. 

AKISAI is building each number of the musical "This is Love" while songwriting them. Scenes from musical numbers are visualized and produced as music videos and musical short films. 

The videos produced are works of art, but can also be used as scripts, scores, and image materials for performances and screenings.
