Oscar-nominated Japanese animator Koji Yamamura's opening for the English-language edition of the Takeshi Art Beat television program has been posted on the program's official website. The show features the filmmaker and comedian Beat Takeshi (Takeshi Kitano), following him as he meets an array of artists from around the world.
Yamamura received an Academy Award nod in 2003 for his short "Mt. Head," although he did not win. He remains the only Japanese animator besides Hayao Miyazaki and Kunio Katō to be nominated for an Oscar. Yamamura's most recent short, "Muybridge's Strings," received the Excellence Prize in the 15th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards.
