I read about the "Young Animator Training Project" in which The Agency of Cultural Affairs of Japan invested 214 million yen ($2.26 million) into a while back. I thought i would give Ojii-san no Lamp a tryas it was produced by fresh animators in training along with various other titles. I was eager to see what these amateur animators got to offer to us.
