I was recently involved in a stop-motion feature film titled Chieri and Cherry as armature specialist. Japanese production company Frontier Works Inc. has lately released a new trailer for this film with English subtitles. It will be screening in Japan soon.

The film is about a little girl Chieri, who found a stuffed toy named Cherry at her dad’s funeral. Chieri goes on a journey with Cherry, straddling the line between reality and fantasy. On the course of the journey, she learns some important things about life.

This feature is directed by Makoto Nakamura, who supervised the remake of Russian puppet animation Cheburashka a few years ago. This is my second participation for Director Nakamura’s feature as armature supervisor.
