How is anime
• How to create an anime
Many are watching the anime. And probably almost all seen it at least a corner of his eye. But as it is created?
It all starts with an idea. It happens that arranged a brainstorming session, where only a selected one of a whole bunch, but better. Sometimes, management is everything. But anyway, this is the first and most boring stage.
After selecting the ideas the team decided to be engaged in its implementation, looking for sponsors. Anime is actually quite expensive thing - the cost of the show runs late at night 52 5-7 TV channels closer to 50 million yen (about 21 million), and the display of the anime Fullmetal Alchemist at 6 pm cost 10 times more expensive!
The following pair of stages are optional in the event that the anime will be drawn by manga comics. Of Anime in general, the majority, and rightly so. By the manga has been successful or not, it is possible to know in advance whether a successful anime and just to save some penny. In fairness it should be noted that sometimes vice versa - a manga drawn by anime. For example, it was with the FLCL.
The second stage - is coming up with a general concept - who, how, what and why. Invented the characters, storyline, made some first sketches. Once it is ready, begin their work writers and artists. Detailed written script drawn characters and backgrounds, then do about the storyboard.
Usually drawn all the old fashioned way, with pencil and paper. Characters are drawn in different perspectives and moods, in different clothes and different objects.
Translation of these sketches in digital form can be done in two ways. Or pencil sketches covered by ink, pencil or stiff for greater contrast, and then scanned:
Or first, scanned, and then the tablet is added contrast. It turns out, in general, the same thing.
Once the characters are ready, drawn sketches throughout the storyline. This is done in the same pencil on paper, with comments, at intervals of a second.
Apart from all this background is drawn. At the same time quite often the case that it is drawn not from scratch, but with what some photos. So do not be surprised if during a walk in Japan will see a familiar place.
However, the background may draw only later, in the process, especially if it's remote and it is not necessary to detail the drawn shade of animation.
Proceed to the next section, connected to a computer. Just then it begins the biggest and most difficult work - animation, coloring and layout. First, the artists draw a few frames of animation characters, between ready-made frames outline the storyline. For TV anime is drawn usually 12 frames per second, but sometimes 24 or 8.
This is done in the same way as before - the contours are displayed on paper and converted into digital form. It's really hellish work - imagine how much it is necessary to draw a 25-minute series!
Then other people (although it may be and the same), the animation is smooth, to make it look natural and without jerks. And finally, the third this animation paint. Besides all this, there are also artists of the effects. They add all sorts of sparks, stars and more. As a result, after the addition of the background is obtained almost ready segment anime.
The whole process of watching an art director (animation director), which checks the footage, make changes, and sometimes redraw something entirely their own hands. Therefore, for this position are usually prescribed one of the animators, with more experience. It is worth noting that in recent years the life of the animators much easier three-dimensional graphics. For example, it is active and very productive uses in his works Makoto Shinkai. Still, most of the anime is drawn still manually.
Then comes the turn of the sound. Actor seiyuu recite their lines and sing songs. From the outside it may look like a lot of fun. Majority anime boys actually female - male voice below and not like children, and children to voice some reason no one takes.
Voices are processed, impose additional sounds -.. The rustle of leaves, walking, etc. Finally add background music, and anime production enters its final stage - show.
How to get money from the anime? Advertising and merchandising. In the middle of the series on television stavlyaetsya ad unit. Sometimes right in the anime draw the names of firms-sponsors or their products (for example, all the characters use the phone with one of the company). Anime is published on DVD. Produced numerous posters, figurines, and more. Well, we'll just look at it.
