2018 Animator Dormitory Project

Update posted by Jun Sugawara On Nov 06, 2018

The number of animators whom we, the Animator Supporters are supporting has reached 10 by launching a new animator dormitory for female animators in March 2018.

By reaching this point, we are happy to announce that we have accomplished our very fist goal , which was to provide housing for ten animators as a minimum safety net.

And now, its’s time to tackle our next goal; to create a new anime-making system with a sufficient budget.

We would like to be the game-changer of the flow of money related to the the anime-making system by using crowdfunding.

To be more specific, we would like to create a system in which profits made by the sales of anime are returned to those who are actually involved in the anime-making process such as animators. Under this system, the team will have sufficient time and budget to focus on making the short animation.

-Costs

The unit price for one key animation sketch will be 10,000JPY and an in-between animation sketch 400JPY. These are twice the price of the average amount paid to animators.

-Profits

In addition to the salary for the sketches mentioned above, we will return the profit from the sales of the anime to animators and those people involved in the process by, for example, in the form of royalty.

Beginning in 2019, as a part of this project, we will ask passionate anime fans like you guys to send us the idea(s) of the anime you would like to watch. (Please stay tuned for more details coming up!) Then, we will turn them into short animation movie which is about one to three minutes in length.

We intend to eventually create longer anime in the next three years.

Currently, we are working on a 30-second commercial to promote this project.

The chief director of this project, Tasturo Kawano, is the winner of the 2nd Starting Out Animators’ Grand Prix. Since his debut as an animator, he has served as opening animation director, a storyboard director, and a casting director for BORUTO-ボルト-NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS.

The high-quality animation can be expected under his exceptional leadership, and the key animation team will be the current or former boarders of our Animator Dormitory.

--------------------------

Our Animator Dormitory will still remain as an essential core to start off the project and for our future works.

We hope you will give us a helping hand!

I always dreamed of being an animator in Japan but now knowing how unfair and undeserved all of my heros get treated makes me sick in the stomach, this is so sad and I hope a better future will be presented as soon as possible! I respect and love all my animators out there, my true role models! ❤️

Animators are amazing people who bring shows to life and deserve to be paid what they deserve.
