I would like to make all kinds of full CG films such as realistic CG films, CG movies for kids and families like Disney’s Pixar and so on. Though I have mainly worked in science fiction, I would like to work in all film genre. And one day, I want to be a world class CG animated film director. I am also interested in directing live-action films.
It would be “GANTZ:O”. It took five years from planning to making a pilot film. I spent one third of my life in CG on this film.

Since I am a father of three children, every day is full and troublesome. My wife always scolds me because I keep trying to escape from doing house chores.
I still watch “Back to the Future” a few times each year. I tell my son that he should buy a DeLorean.
Also I buy Star Wars toys for my children… mostly.
