TamaGra Animation 2017 (タマグラアニメーション2017)


TamaGra is an abbreviation of the Department of Graphic Design at Tama Art University (Tamabi).  Under the late Prof. Masahiro Katayama (1955-2011), TamaGra inspired a new generation of innovative animators including Oscar-winner Kato Kunio, renowned New York-based artist Akino Kondoh, and independent animators Mirai Mizue, Shin Hashimoto, Ryo Okawara, and Masaki Okuda.

Since 2012, Prof. Tatsutoshi Nomura (b. 1964), himself a Tamabi graduate, has led the TamaGra animation programme.  Under Nomura’s leadership, TamaGra graduates have won international animation prizes.  Notable examples include Yoko Kuno, who won the New Face Award at the 2013 Japanese Media Arts Festival and Sawako Kabuki, who won the Jury Award for Summer’s Puke is Winter’s Delight at Annecy 2017.  Some graduates are working as independent or freelance animators, while others have gone on to work for animation studios or in the gaming industry. 


Above is a selection of the best works by students at TamaGra this year.  You can also click on links to individual films below.  So far, I have only been able to find social media profiles for Eri Sasaki, but I will update this post when these young, up-and-coming artists establish a web presence.
