Jakob Jensen Talks AstroBoy
"For Danish-born animator Jakob Jensen, to animate Japan's classic manga "AstroBoy" at Hong Kong's Imagi Animation Studio seems like a difficult challenge, despite his background at DreamWorks. After all, AstroBoy is virtually a national treasure of Japan, but far less well known in the rest of the world. But Jensen has confidence that he can make "AstroBoy" fly.
" 'I want to apply my DreamWorks experience and implement philosophies I learned at that company into the work flow and the pipeline of the studio in Hong Kong to make AstroBoy as empathic in the U.S. as he is in Japan," said Jensen, 32, the animation acting director for "AstroBoy" at Imagi.".........
