For the past week I have been in Tokyo!
I'm keeping another blog of exclusively Tokyo and Japan related encounters and inspirations here: tokyo-mo.blogspot.com.
But I'll keep updating Cutting Board with animation and design related projects.
I'm here for a two month internship at TBS television studios. For the first 3 weeks I will work on the program Cat Chat with fellow USC classmate Jovanna. We will be producing 4 minutes of flash animation in the next two weeks. The show teaches Japanese children English through song and dance. I think I will mostly be handling character animation in Flash.
On Friday we recorded voices for the intro to the program. I voiced Richie the cat and somehow it turned out pretty decent. Thanks to Jovanna for this inside shot of the studio:
In July I will begin working on the media stairs that I previously mentioned here.
