Calling all Animators and Background Artists! Studio Ghibli Wants You!

Studio Ghibli’s fantasy aesthetic has inspired so many of the current generation of animators and background artists that it seems only appropriate that the iconic studio is actively seeking to recruit undiscovered artistic talent for Boro the Caterpillar, Hayao Miyazaki’s much-lauded return project that takes its full-length inspiration from a short film.

The film is set to be released in 2019, but the actual animation and background artwork begins this October. Applicants must be able to speak Japanese and commit to three-year contract. With a wage of 200,000 Yen per month, it’s a labour of love, but what a fabulous experience! Applications close on the 20th July, which gives potential applicants plenty of opportunity to research the processes and practice of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. SEEN can only imagine that the competition will be intense, making Boro the Caterpillar truly spectacular.

Find out how to apply here.

Bufle: Launch of the Bubble-Waffle

SEEN has heard much of the phenomenon of the Asian Bubble-Waffle and thus was very keen to sample this Hong Kong import for herself. My guest and I found ourselves in a bright, buzzy bar/café with tables and plenty of counters and high stools. It’s in Rupert Street, between Soho and busy Leicester Square.

SEEN has been a huge fan of Arthur Hooper’s since their May opening. It’s handily located close to Borough Market (where much of their ingredients are sourced), so it is with great delight that we hear weekend brunches are now on the menu too.
