FC TOKYO, our sister school, encourages its students to participate “industry-cooperative projects.”
Through these opportunities to work with professionals, students gain experience and become “work-ready.”
Every year, more than 250 industry-cooperative projects are offered to FC TOKYO by the movie industry.
Learned How To Be A Professional While Enjoying Creative Freedom“I love movies. I love music. What job field suits me best?” This question occurred to me when I first heard that a new film school was about to open. So I decided to study sound design and music for movies.
I entered FC TOKYO, and I felt this incredible sense of freedom. I was never bored: I was always active doing something. I just focused all of my energy on what I wanted to do.
After graduation, I joined a professional society that was formed by a group of fellow sound designers. And it was there I heard about the Touhou Project. It sounded very exciting, so I made an appointment to meet with the director and showed him my reel of projects I worked on. That's how I got the sound design job on the Touhou Project.
FC TOKYO allowed me to use its facilities to do this job. I had worked on many student films when I was in school. I learned how to work with soundtracks for movies. Using the knowledge and skills acquired in my schooling, I successfully completed my assignment for the Touhou Project. Nowadays, I receive many job offers from producers of animated movies. Currently, I am doing the prep work for my next project.”
