I finally finished the second documentary with my good friend and writer Marcela Hervia about the homeless issue in Manchester. (About 3 weeks a go but haven’t got time to blog!) When me and Marcela finished the first video it wasn’t any news about any good shelter for them but now there are news that empty buildings will be open for them so hopefully the promises are genuine and we won’t see anyone sleeping rough in this cold winter.
The main thing for me that kept me thinking A LOT is seeing young people on the streets that is not good for the future of a city because those young people are the future. In any situation they need help and direction and I hope they will be taken seriously to be out of the streets and get their lives back.
I don’t know why being homeless became a badge and the forever dark at the end of the tunnel when as a human we know life has ups and downs and everybody deserve help and chances to live as long as they are breathing.
I will write about it soon but … yeah … it just broke my heart watching people living in the streets in the Manchester and as it gets worst from more than 5 years a go till now.
I also made a short comedy animation from one of my short pieces at Commonword Identity writing workshop.
It will be screened at CAN‘s “Community Spirit” event at Mad lab and in Filmonik at old corner house (MMU) and I will upload in youtube soon.
I just invite everyone to watch my documentary just below and let’s not think about the BUSY schedule before Christmas and … yeah I’m fine and I will write about it soon.
Konnichiwa Universe …!
So Finally the Amaterasu animation project about the lovely deity of the sun finished.
Had the meeting yesterday and it got the road for the future and hopefully movies.
Again thanks to amazing Yuko and my amazing work place CAN 🙂
There is lots to do now to focus every thing, beside one of the animations that i animated a heart and it looks SO natural and I am so happy about.
My study schedule doesn’t look really good and it really needs time and working that I couldn’t do enough these days.
It’s not that bad but from my point of view am I satisfied? … NOPE. and that’s the thing.
I need work as much as I am satisfied and I need more planning.
but in the mean time it’s a pause and breathe that will help whole the thing.
I have to finish this post soon, need to get home early and I really like productive days.
So yes it’s done by me but the story of JPN mythology just began.
Hello to the universe and all the creatures inside!
By the changes that comes up for “Goddess of the sun, Amaterasu” Next week is taking to completing in CAN and it’s all for good.
Finishing the second year of my Japanese course till the end of November and passing by 85 out of 100 for the one before the main exam is a ” You are AWESOME” to my forehead.
I finished a draft video for the graphic and animation works I want to do for Heart’s core and it made me being on track and I felt SO good on Friday.
The week a head gonna be super busy too but all good and productive and I am getting good skills in the tech course in contact theater that was again a better point to the projects I am working on.
And the website and focusing the works is again a priority.
IT NEEDS TO BE DONE!
The meeting today with Yuko Howes the amazing Japanese lady from JSNW (Japanese Society of North West) was made me think of I forgot to add the photo of Japan Day!
So The Japan Day in Manchester was on 25th of August 2014 with lots different activities from showing martial arts to the costume contest mostly from animation and manga characters and information about the Japanese art (like craft and paintings and etc.) and culture.
And Yuko invited me being as the guest of fantastic tea ceremony of Japan and I absolutely LOVED it.
The adventure was cool and the venue “Midland Hotel” was great, and I think bigger venue was even better because LOTS of people came and yeah! … it was full with people who were interested in Japan and it made me super happy 🙂
Here are some photos:
And finally me as a Japanese warrior … Kind a … ^_^

I am back from the holiday and will start the script of a new stop motion animation project
based on Japanese myth … SO INTERESTING … Just what I LOVE to do
I am doing it with a fantastic friend Katrina who is a great illustrator and character designer.
We studied some of the famous myth and folklore and we came up with three that made our project.
