This page videos are all related to "RETURN THE FAVOR - animated short film”. Check the INFO PAGE to know what is it about.
Given that I was working part-time + studying animation + living alone, filming and editing vlogs consistently looks like a crazy idea. However, now that I can see the record of how it all went, I even wish I started filming the process earlier.
Especially for the first ones, they are not all pretty, smoothly edited, high-quality vlogs. But it is the real story.
Here is probably the first and only place where you can see an animation student in Japan from a foreigner perspective. Plus, in the director role leading a team!
Vlogs prior to the project delivery date
Vlogs after the project delivery
Right after I finished Return the Favor, I interviewed 3 of my teachers, who currently work in the animation industry in Tokyo. I haven't finished translating/editing those videos yet, but they are coming. Hopefully during 2019.
