    This is my final thesis project. I created info-graphic, motion piece. My objective is to make Japanese people to think about that everything happening here in Japan, isn't that normal. So I created this video from foreigner's point of view, rather than Japanese people's point of view. Both English and Japanese versions are available. By the way, please don't call me racist, because I am one of short, small eyes Japanese. 大学の卒業制作で制作した映像です。(日本語版) 日本で生活していると、当たり前すぎて気づかない「不思議な事実」を、海外で生活した経験も生かし、外国人の視点から統計とともに映像化しました。 笑いつつも、「なんか不思議だな」と考えてもらえれば幸いです。 日本語版と英語版を制作しました。

      This is my animation Thesis Film done during my time at the Academy of Art University 2010. :) Bridge is a story about four animal characters trying to cross a bridge, but ending up as obstacles to one another in the process. The moral behind this story revolves around how there are often disagreements or competing paths in life, and the possible results of pride, obstinance, and compromise. Music by Greg Gauba. http://www.tingtey.com Note: I noticed some websites have been featuring my work around, I am grateful for it. I also appreciate all feedbacks, critiques and comments! But some websites have mistaken that I worked for Pixar, which is a misunderstanding and it is not true. I just wish to correct that. : )

          Sorry, this English version of the video is not available now. I appliciate you guys comments and critiques. Kenichi -------------------- I created this information graphic motion piece as my final thesis project. my objective is to make Japanese people think about what is happening in their own country, and that some aspects of Japanese culture are not that normal. The deliberate English narrationoffers a point of view on Japan that isn't usually considered by Japanese people, and therefore conveys a 'foreign' perspective.

                    Cupidiculous(2014) is a motion graphic project fusing 2D cel-animation and 3D techniques together. It conveys a humor story about Cupid, who makes Adam and Eve fall in love. But this act of love leads to overpopulation, overconsumption and global warming. So he has to find the way to fix these problems. Most characters and elements have been done in 3D but rendered as 2D flat vector look with poppy pastel, splashy and heightened color schemes. Then added more 2D liquid speed lines by drawing frame by frame. Even though laughter is the major objective, but Cupidiculous also delivers critical messages covertly. More or less audiences will get that with absolutely enjoyment. 2014 School of Visual Arts, MFA Computer Art Student Film Software : Cinema 4D/ Toonboom/ After Effects Cupidiculous Blog http://nopkarian.tumblr.com/ CREDITS Directed and Animated by Panop Koonwat Music : Henry Homesweet Sound design : Narin Kongkatavaethita AWARDS Jury Award MetroCAF 2014 FINALIST Adobe Awards 2014 FINALIST PISAF 2014 (Puchon International Student Animation Festival) Official selection for SIGGRAPH Asia 2014

                      Imagine living a life where the world you perceive and experience around you is entirely different than that of your peers, and your family — where you feel… misunderstood. Autism is the one of the highest growing serious developmental disabilities today. Our wish with this piece is to give a glimpse into the lives of children living with Autism and, in any way we can, to inspire positive change through a deeper tolerance and understanding. For our senior film, we have chosen to represent an extreme case: life through the eyes of a child who is non-verbal, and her constant struggle to cope with the world around her. We understand that Autism is complex, and has a wide spectrum; this film is meant only as an interpretation inspired by our research and time spent within the Autism community. Thank you for watching! Directed and Produced by Marisabel Fernandez and Alexander Bernard at Ringling College of Art and Design.
