Veteran Anime Talent Launch Crowdfunding Campaign to Support Young Animators

Help foster the skill and stability of up and coming animators with a dorm in the heart of the industry

Animation is a difficult art to begin with, and with low wages and long hours, it can be crushing. Veteran animators Noayuki Asano (Tatami Galaxy), Shingo Yamashita (Gatchaman Crowds), and NPO Animator Supporters aim to help foster the skills and stability of up and coming animators with a dormitory in Tokyo, Asagaya-ward's heart of the industry. 

 

Looking for the support of international anime fans, they aim to raise $10,000 between now and June 9th in an Indieigogo crowdfunding campaign.

 

For more information about the dorm, the difficult conditions in the industry and incentives for donating, see https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/animator-dormitories-for-start-ups/.
