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.



I would have given this a higher rating if I hadn't had to rate it just to read a review to find out HOW to get it to play.. It was frustrating to say the least.

Great work!

This is really good work. I have learnt something today...which is a rare occurence considering I'm on holiday. Even though some of it is fictional it does mention things that are TRUE. So don't listen to people who say blam this, the blam thing is only used for works that are considered useless and total garbage and this is NOT useless and NOT total garbage. For all of you who haven't watched it. WATCH IT! BTW...the play button works now. :) No more using wasted movemtent of right-clicking and pressing play! Oh the inhumanity!! :)

Hooray for learning?

damn you edumacation.
