Fujitsu Interactive, Inc.
Title: 3D Graphic Designer -> Lead Animator -> 3D Production Manager

I was hired as a 3D Graphic Designer at Fujitsu, creating artwork for an interactive storybook title as a value-added supplement for Fujitsu's flagship A-life product "FinFin". Our production team was small, and some members were inexperienced for their roles, which gave me the opportunity to make a larger contribution and expand my responsibilities into management.

I was promoted to Lead Animator and later to 3D Production Manager and became involved in all stages of title development encompassing numerous productions, from concept stage through preplanning and pipeline, production, international localization and marketing materials such as packaging, merchandising and advertising.
