Elvis the “Positive Thinking” Pelvis (abbreviated title, EPTP) is the first DVD made by Japanese photographer Osamu Kanemura (b. 1963). Besides his well-recognized black and white photographs of cityscapes, Kanemura has presented his video work on various occasions. However, what sets "EPTP" apart from his former video work is his attempt to assemble together photographs and moving images both shot by a digital camera, which he began using since late 2013.

"EPTP" has been released with a special sleeve that is made out of two original b/w prints (RC Paper) by Kanemura and the title on the cover is handwritten by the artist. The photographs used for the special sleeve are all different images, which means no two are ever the same. This special DVD sleeve is a limited edition of 150. (After being sold out of these 150 copies, "EPTP" will still be available but the format details have not yet been decided.)
