Seminar on Making Nobunaga Concerto Anime - Directors Introduce 3D CG Techniques Using Rotoscoping

A seminar introducing the production process behind the anime Nobunaga Concerto will be held in Akihabara on Nov. 27. This event is the 13th in the Workflow Seminar series sponsored by well-known 3D CG solution service, Too.

Director Yusuke Fujikawa, visual director Denki Takano, and art director Ayaka Kumamoto will lecture at the seminar. Titled “TV Anime Nobunaga Concerto Workflow and Making-of: Animation Production Using 3D CG and Rotoscoping,” the seminar will introduce the workflow of anime production from a digital perspective, which centers on the software Autodesk.

The TV anime Nobunaga Concerto is based on a manga of the same name by Ayumi Ishii and was created as part of Fuji TV’s 55th anniversary project. The story tells the troubled tale of main character and high school student Saburo who travels back in time to the Warring States period and ends up living as Nobunaga’s replacement.

It is typical for an anime to be created by an animation studio. However, for this work, every episode of the series was created independently by Fuji TV’s CG department, and this fact has brought the series attention. The show’s 3D CG has even been praised for its use of rotoscoping, a technique in which actual photos are traced.

The anime production workshop seminars put on by Too have been praised for introducing cutting-edge 3D CG techniques and tools through talked-about anime. Seminars have already been held for Rebuild of Evangelion, Mobile Suit Gundam UC, and other series. The seminars are free to attend, but signing up beforehand is required. Seating is limited and will be chosen by raffle.
