Santa Company's Kenji Studio Posts Coluboccoro Kickstarter Trailer

posted on by Egan Loo
Originally a short by Kenji Itoso that won Creative Market Tokyo 2011's top award

KENJI STUDIO, director Kenji Itoso's studio for Santa Company and Kotonakare Hero Gingerman, began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for its planned Coluboccoro Kickstarter fundraising campaign.

Coluboccoro was originally a fantasy short that Itoso produced with Anime Innovation Tokyo, and it won the grand prize in the Creative Market Tokyo 2011 event. (Itoso was the unit director on the late Satoshi Kon's dormant Yume-Miru Kikai film.)

Itoso conceived, planned, wrote, storyboarded, and directed the "Coluboccoro" short himself. Its grand prize led to Itoso receiving a go-ahead to make the Santa Company film. Norihiko Tsuru composed the music, Hanami performed the theme song, and the voice cast starred Emiri Katō.

KENJI STUDIO had already run a Kickstarter campaign for Santa Company in 2013, and it completed the film last year after meeting its fundraising goal.
