Yes... while Hiro Shitaku is fictional (means, not real...), the remaining goodness in this "edu-mation" (at over seven minutes long) is accurate, and with a bit of comedy, will explore the history and techniques of the Japanese animation industry. I had a lot of fun making it, and I hope everyone enjoy's watching it!

** Disclaimer: to avoid confusion, Hiro was not a real person. However, all of the techniques discussed in this film were instead created by the industry as a whole to deal with their insane production quotas. Learn, laugh, but please don't take this film 100% seriously. Sorry.

Not only was this really helpful, but I saw my three favorite classic animes! Astro Boy, Kimba, and Speed Racer. <3 Glad you used them! Although, of course, if I would have done something like this, I would have definitely made Osamu Tezuka both the narrator and the main character.
