Animation Nation 2007 Freedom screening – Thank you.

Posted By yonghow on November 24th, 2007

I will be heading to the airport soon to catch my plane back to Tokyo, and with a mountain of work waiting for me back in the studio I doubt I will be able to write anything for a while, so I figured I said my thanks first.

A very big thanks to the dedicated folks from the Singapore Film Society who organized AN 2007, Dave, Vijay, Shirley, Gavin, and Nas ( screening room, I hope I got your name correct ) and everyone who turned up today to watch Freedom. I apologize profusely for the badly answered questions, and if I was unattentive to anyone. I really wished I had more time to chat with the people who came up to talk to me after the screening. I’m glad you guys enjoyed watching Freedom.

Animation Nation 2007 has only just started, you guys are in for many a great treat I am sure.

ps The release of the said final episode of Freedom is not official yet, so I very politely ask that the friends who now know the news keep it to yourselves. Yoroshiku Tanomu. :]

See you guys back in Tokyo very soon, with more news on Freedom.

Toho Gakuen Film School 東放学園映画専門学校

Posted By yonghow on November 13th, 2007

Toho Gakuen Film Techniques Training College (東放学園映画専門学校) , located in Takadanobaba (高田馬場), Tokyo, was where I took a 2 year filmmaking course while under the NAC Takashimaya scholarship program. The school was established by TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System) in 1969 to nurture able talent for the Japanese film, animation and music industries, and has continued to produce skilled professionals for the media industry till this day. Well, so the website says. :p
