We created opening sequences of a new commercial message from nhk regarding environment concerns.

We’ve done all effects & composite in 2D with After Effects.

This is an original footage of the sequence. we shot many hands with greenscreen.


AEP Project announced an After Effects user group meeting named “AEP Night vol.2“.

The event is planned seven unique talk sessions, a short movie competition, and an after party. The talk sessions and competition will be broadcast using Ustream. (Live page on station 5 website)
And we prepared many join-prizes: CS5 Production Premium, CINEMA 4D Broadcast Edition, FxFactory Pro 2, five Red Giant products, and more.

Date: 27, May, 2010 (Thu) 18:00- 20:30 JST
Place: Station 5 (OW Building 4-21-8 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo).
*station 5 is an Adobe’s official gallery and event space at Omote-sando, Tokyo.

Originally, I’m slightly envious of AENY(User meeting in New York) but there’s not the such users-led meeting in Japan. So I want to make user meeting like that.

Japanese detailed page:

  • SESSION 01: A short movie competition screening
  • SESSION 02: Free talk session
  • SESSION 03: Introducing CS5-ready plugins “Trapcode Particular” and “Magic Bullet Mojo
    Speaker : Satoshi Okamoto Flashback Co., Ltd.
  • SESSION 04: Great integration with After Effects and CINEMA 4D
    Speaker : llcheesell (Tatsuro Ogata) at Vilvo Designworks
  • SESSION 05: Introducing a fluid simulation plugin “Turbulence.2D” and CINEMA 4D
    Speaker : Tomohide Miyata Marketing depatment at TMS Corporation
  • SESSION 06: AE Scripting Case: Rendering Automation
    Speaker : Yuuichi Terao (Terraon) shooting director at ufotable
  • SESSION 07: After Effects CS5
    Speaker : Secret guest

The event is for Japanese users but I hope that more people know such user-led user meeting held in Japan.
