Production I.G. Studio – Anime Office

I always wonder what an Anime production company’s office looks like and this time there is a look into Production I.G. Thankfully Danny Choo has gone into this Anime Company and taken a look at their offices and how they work. Production I.G. have made some well known anime and one of my favorite being Sengoku Basra, and they are currently making Sengoku Basra 2 which I am very much looking forward to watching as soon as its out. I always thought that it would be very cool to work in an Anime Studio

They are also responsible for one of the greatest anime movies of all time, Ghost In the Shell! I even remember watching it on a Manga Video when I bought it from Tower Records in Whiteleyes in Bays Water, London. That used to be my main source for videos back in the early 90s, I would walk to the basement and pile up some videos from the anime section. They even have their own cafeteria so I’m assuming the company is doing pretty well. I wish they would sell some of those art cels, I would buy them in a heartbeat, they would be very cool on a wall, I have seen one restaurant with anime cels and I wish I could take them off the wall.

View From Below

This is a different take on advertising from a creative Miami based production company. One Ad for the Madrid Subway system and the other is for the Nascar 500. You take a tour of Madrid from below as if the you are looking through glass, its a very nice ad even though I don’t have a clue what the guy is saying. The Nascar ad is pretty cool because its a different perspective for the oval races, you get to see the action as it happens which is a cool idea.
