On November 2, 2017, a special lecture “Animated Film in Japan: An Overview of a One Hundred Year History” was held at Yokohama Campus of Tokyo University of the Arts (Tokyo Geidai).

Project Associate Professor Ilan Nguyȇn of Global Support Center provided the lecture, which was followed by a campus tour for international students who don’t study in Yokohama and therefore have little chance to visit the campus.

During the lecture, Associate Professorac Nguyȇn talked about a history of animated film in Japan from the Taisho period to the present, while chronologically introducing amination techniques such as cutout, shadow, cel and CG, as well as production companies and animators that represented each time point.

Portions of the animated films representing respective times or techniques were also shown throughout the lecture, which helped the participating international students understand the course of development of animated film in Japan.

Following films were shown in the lecture:
・Namakura Gatana(The Dull Sword) , a cutout animation film by Junichi Kouchi
・Kujira(The whale) and Yureisen(The Phantom Ship), silhouette animation films by Noburo Ofuji
・Fukusuke (The Top-Heavy Frog) by Otogi Production founded by Ryuichi Yokoyama

After the lecture finished, the participating international students took a tour of the campus visiting ateliers and studios of the Graduate School of Film and New Media, where they socialized with students studying there.

They also saw some works by students, with whom they also exchanged opinions.
The questions and answers exchanged reflected their respective academic interests; a music graduate student questioned what film producers would require of composers, while a graduate student of fine arts asked how many animators can make a living from animation making.

This event served as an opportunity for the international students, who are usually busy with their own work on other campuses, to turn their eyes to other fields of studies. It also helped to promote mutual understanding among students. The international office will hold more events, where students studying different academic subjects on different campuses can come together.
