Live Streams

Mar, the founder of an animation studio in Tokyo, and her team share serious AND relaxed stories.
Think "in-depth industry conversations with pros, creative and business processes" PLUS "fun facts, pop culture, life in Japan, and random things we enjoy like nature and culture".

Where did the recent live stream's recording go?!

From 2023, most videos hosted by Mar get hidden soon after we get offline. But edited recordings are later uploaded to our YouTube channel! These are shorter versions of the stream focused on that day's topic for easier viewing.

In addition to that, supporters at Patreon can also access exclusive monthly clips taken from those (now hidden) streams. That should include the Q&A section, fun highlights, or other video content we may find relevant.

Short on time?

We summarized some recorded streams for you!

You can also send questions to Mar through social media so she replies on stream. She will send you the video link later.

Let's Discover the Core of ALL our Animations

After following all the steps to fulfill my dream, I chose not to enter an existing animation studio in Japan. WHY? To create animation with my own rules! Join this steam to get a deeper look at the reasoning behind our 5 public values.

To train our new team, I showed how I do key animation files. Japan studios use a similar style so feel free to use it for your productions as well!

PROCESS (timestamps inside the video's description)

But why streaming? 

Vlogs, in-person interviews, and tutorials are great but take a lot of time to prepare, film, and edit.

So, we started these "chat while I work" streams to try to produce videos while still animating (what everyone wants Mar to do really).

I'll stream weekly for 6 months to see if I like it, even if no one is watching!
And if the steams pay for the webcam and the monitor by Dec 2020, then I will keep going for another year.

Little did Mar know that this would become one of her favorite times of the week.

She could be a wild extrovert while working from home! Animation, comics, animals, health topics, Japan... everything fits in our informal talks!

We welcomed new team members thanks to the connections created. We took stand-alone tutorials out of streams. And we all learned a lot of new things about the industry together.

And YES, that financial goal was reached! Thanks to YOU!

In 2021 we made an effort to maintain the fun while becoming more valuable and on-topic. That meant we had some live interviews. 

But then there was a stream break from late 2021 to early 2023 due to an unexpected internet and hardware situation when moving apartments. Still, Mar loves making videos and tries to broadcast live regularly again as much as possible.

That said, even when in some videos Mar is working on paid commissions, she becomes slower onscreen. So it makes a difference when the community helps support the streams financially. 

Thank you for sharing our streams, your donations, and your patronage!
