Synch-Point confirms Director's Track

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Synch-Point has sent out a press release regarding the director's commentary track on the FLCL DVDs.

Excepts from press release:

FLCL will feature a running commentary by Kazuya Tsurumaki, director and creator of FLCL. Tsurumaki finally got his chance to cast creative control over a whole project when GAINAX gave him free reign to do FLCL in 2000 – and with this bizarre series the anime community found a maverick artist and Tsurumaki himself found his artistic voice.

Tsurumaki rose quickly through the ranks of the animation world, having done work early on with Nadia: Secret of Blue Water, serving as one of the Key animators on Ah! My Goddess, and then moving into an assistant director role on the Neon Genesis Evangelion television series. That series' director, GAINAX founder Hideki Anno, then entrusted Tsurumaki to work on the Evangelion, on which the talented animator displayed his wares. He directed the Evangelion movie: Air. Tsurumaki moved on as assistant director for GAINAX's next project Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou (His and Her Circumstances), before being asked by GAINAX to create his own series, which has now come down to us as FLCL.
