TamaGra Animation 2016 (タマグラアニメーション2016)


TamaGra is an abbreviation of the Department of Graphic Design at Tama Art University (Tamabi).  Under the late Prof. Masahiro Katayama (1955-2011), TamaGra inspired a new generation of innovative animators including Oscar-winner Kato Kunio, renowned New York-based artist Akino Kondoh, and independent animators Mirai Mizue, Shin Hashimoto, Ryo Okawara, and Masaki Okuda



Since 2012, Prof. Tatsutoshi Nomura (b. 1964), himself a Tamabi graduate, has led the TamaGra animation programme.  Under Nomura’s leadership, TamaGra graduates have won international animation prizes.  Notable examples include Yoko Kuno, who won the New Face Award at the 2013 Japanese Media Arts Festival and Sawako Kabuki, who won the Jury Award for Summer’s Puke is Winter’s Delight at Annecy 2017.  Some graduates are working as independent or freelance animators, while others have gone on to work for animation studios or in the gaming industry. 


Above is the official Tama Art University playlist for animation made by TamaGra students in 2016. There are links below directing you to each individual film.  To learn more about the artists, click on the links to the artists' websites or social media profiles.
