About the Anime Tamago Project
The Anime Tamago Project is the work of a multi-studio coalition that started out as the “Young Animators’ Training Project” after receiving the blessings of the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs. As the name implies, their goal is to recruit and rear young and novice animators, providing them with on-the-job-training to get them ready for future careers in the cutthroat anime industry in Japan. The word “tamago” (meaning “egg” ) was chosen in 2015 to give the impression that their recruits are being “incubated” and lovingly cared-for under their guidance, and that someday they will break out of their shells and be “born” as full-fledged, fully-matured animators who are ready to start their new lives.
About Zunda Horizon
Now in their seventh year of operation, Anime Tamago participants have consistently churned out creative and successful anime that anybody can enjoy. Their four-series 2017 lineup includes Zunda Horizon, created as a joint effort between edutainment company Wao! World, animation company Studio Live, and Zunko’s promotional company SSS LLC. It’s an anime that dives headlong into the world of VOCALOID and voice synth fandom at a level that has never before been attempted by any anime studio, let alone a group of trainees. The special screening event on March 11th is not only an introduction to their works, but also a celebration of growth for this team of young talent who were given the chance to create something truly special, and will set the stage for the team’s next anime projects over the next year.
