Fan-favorite anime to serve as basis for two-part class
Laid-Back Camp was a surprise hit this year, with fans warming to the friendly fun of the series. For those inspired to do more after watching it... there's a seminar for that.
Yoshiaki Kyougoku, the director of Laid-Back Camp, will be conducting a two-part seminar as part of September's Anisemi Summer. Participants can go to one or both parts of the event to learn about Kyougoku's anime-making philosophy, how it was represented in Laid-Back Camp, and how it can help up-and-coming creators with their own work.
Part 1 will focus on series composition and storyboarding, with Part 2 centering on the actual animation production process. During the seminar, Kyougoku will focus on the concept of setting as a centerpiece, and weaving together the charm of a location with the personality of the cast.
Both parts of the seminar will take place on the same day, with an hour break in between. Registration is 4,800 yen for one sitting, or 8,600 yen to attend both.
