The comic series “The Diary of Ochibi” centres around the life of Ochibi and is written around the 4 seasons.
To be able to produce the other seasons, the project is now on indiegogo with a crowdfunding campaign. Below are the visual ideas for the animations of the other seasons.
The project originated when Masashi Kawamura was invited to participate in the “Japan Anima(tor)’s Exhibition”, which starts autumn 2015. A team has been gathered to make this film come to life: The animation will be drawn by the animators from Khara, Inc. and led by Hideaki Anno (the film director of “Evangelion”). The animation will be converted into stop motion by the studio dwarfinc which is well known for animations like “Domo-kun” for NHK.
If you`re interested in supporting this project check out their crowdfunding campaign over at indiegogo which still runs until 7th February 2015.
