Hiro Shitaku

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.

Pretty darn good.

Brian Schmoyer did a really good job on this film. The humor (if he was going for that) could have been better, but I've seen much worse, so hats off to him. This film was entertaining AND educational. Damn, there goes another hat. The things HE animated were simplistic, but effective and mildly stylish(I'm running out of fricken' hats). Overall, this is worth at least one view.



Well...

...now I know who to blame for those cheap animation techniques that always annoy me when I watch Japanime. ;) Give me "Triplets of Belleville" over Japanime any day!

As for the movie, it was educational, but not-so-great graphics (apart from the examples) and it was really a bit slow...



Kewl

Nice job, but the real "godfather of anime was the guy who created "Astro boy". In fact, he created manga altogether.
