I'm useless at keeping secrets for too long so might as well talk about it now. I'm working with anime production studio JC Staff to breathe 2D life into our Mirai Suenaga. This work will be for the opening and ending of Mirai Millennium which I will initially use as the OP to Season 2 of Culture Japan.
JC Staff will be working on the animation and I will be working on the backgrounds, editing and sound mastering. You can see some of the backgrounds in the headers of the new design of the site that I hope you like - but its not finished yet and we are rolling out the changes in stages.
What I would like to ask is what are your fave anime OPs? Just want to get an idea of what you like and hopefully get some inspiration as I do the editing. There will be a scene where Mirai is walking as the background scrolls - Mirai with wavy hair and all. A few cuts of her in Summer uniform and some in her Solar Marine uniform too.
I'm currently getting a load of inspiration from the OP of Diebuster - one of my most fave anime OPs.
Do share your fave OP and ED with a link from YouTube pasted in the comments like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFQ5WGHpo48
If there are any particular inspirations that I use then I promise to stick your name in the credits ^^
Ah, and before I leave you - the following video is quite a laugh and a half which no doubt my anime opening will end up looking like too ^^;
