A series of talk sessions with top Japanese animation creators produced in conjunction the with Annecy International Animation Festival have been launched.

“VR, AR, and MR: New Screen Possibilities”
Participants: YUHARA Kazuki (director), MACHIBA Katsutoshi (XR content producer)

In recent years, technologies such as VR, AR and AI have been paired up with traditional visual storytelling techniques to create new, original works that bring an entirely new experience to viewers. VR, in particular, has been embraced as a new category by many film festivals, with much attention being paid to this new genre. We discuss the wide-ranging possibilities of VR and its connection to animation with YUHARA Kazuki, the creator of “Canaria,” a VR piece that won a New Face Award in the 24th Japan Media Arts Festival’s Entertainment Division.
