WFAC 2012: Anime Mirai - the future of animation
Anime Mirai ("the future of animation") is a collective project from four leading Japanese production studios selected by the Japan Animation Creators Association (JAniCA) under the patronage of the Agency for Cultural Affairs for the purpose of training young animators on the job. The result: four delightful films that point to the future of anime.
