Daisuke "Dice" Tsutsumi is the Co-director of The Dam Keeper, which was nominated for the 2015 Academy Award for Short Animated Film. This session will focus on Mr. Tsutsumi's specialty in using light and color to bring scenes to life, and unpack the secrets of the "color script" - one of the most important tools in art direction which Mr. Tsutsumi himself employed in the creation of films such as Toy Story 3, Monsters University, and recently in The Dam Keeper.

Also in this session, he will introduce his unique painting techniques to recreate lighting in Photoshop. In addition to this, Mr. Tsutsumi, who has over 16 years experience in the industry on a world stage, including the foundation of his own studio Tonko House after leaving Pixar Studios, will talk about his reasons for collaborating with current Japanese CG creators, including un-released Tonko House projects.
Look forward to a seminar based on the fundamental elements of art direction theory, techniques, and mindset
