Santa Company anime Kickstarter
For anyone that is interested in funding this 30-minute Christmas themed anime project:
Hello everyone. I’m Kenji Itoso, living in Japan.
I have a career learned under Hayao Miyazaki and Satoshi Kon.
Currently, I produce and direct live action films, music videos and commercials, mainly working on animation projects.
Also as a University professor, I do research on film techniques and teach my specialty.
I believe that Christmas day is the best day of the year. And I’ve always wanted to produce an animation film that is about Santa Clauses. After 12 years of planning, the time has finally come for me to get down to it.
Producer / Executive Director: Kenji Itoso (Transformers Animated, Dreaming Machine)
Director: Yumi Kamakura (Pokémon,Eureka seveN)
Screenplay: Naohiro Fukushima (009 RE:CYBORG,Eden of The East)
Original Character Design: Hidari (VOCALOID, Atelier Ayesha)
Animation Character Design: Hiroki Harada (Romeo×Juliet, Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Background Art: Takashi Aoi (Xam'd: Lost Memories, Eureka seveN)
Produced: KENJI STUDIO
More background from ANN (you can see hints of Natsuiro Kiseki in the character designs by Hidari for example):
Naohiro Fukushima (Eden of the East, Eureka 7: Astral Ocean) is writing the script, and artist Hidari (Fractale, Natsu-iro Kiseki) drew the original character design illustrations. Itoso's own KENJI STUDIO (Kotonakare Hero Gingerman) is animating the film. Itoso is serving as producer and executive director, while Yumi Kamakura (episode director for Eureka Seven, Blood+, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet) is serving as director. Hiroka Harada (Romeo × Juliet, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is adapting Hidari's character designs for animation.
