Fumi Inoue has been fascinated by small worlds ever since she was a child. At Tokyo university of Art and Design, she was amazed by model animation techniques that gave movement to the static miniature world. After she graduated, she assisted Japanese puppet animators creating children's programs and commercials.
She decided to study abroad to improve her animation skills and confidence. Fumi believes the UK offers the best opportunity to study model animation. While at the NFTS, she wants to explore different combinations of animation techniques.
"Gaijin" (Foreigner) is her graduation film.
