Danny Choo at SOAS!!! 13/4/2010
I recently went to SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) to see Danny Choo talk about "Creative Industries in Japan."
The talk consisted of how Danny got to where he is today which then followed about what he plans to do the future. These include DCTV and Chinka. Now he progressed further into the talk about how anyone gets to Japan. Now i found this area particularly important as I too have that dream to one day live and work in Japan. The one place that has made me into the person i am today just by influence of Anime, Manga and other Otaku related goods.
He finally ended by talking about what anyone would need to get themselves to the land of the rising sun. These included knowing the culture, mastering the language, building a complimentary skill set and finally, staying passionate and focused. This is something that i plan on doing.
After that, we had a networking session that included talking to "light minded people" which was quite good as those who brought their Daughters and other girls then got to display them. Rin of course was with me that day.
Nearing the end of that night, i finally got my chance to speak to Danny and i got some well needed advice which i am extremely grateful for.
Thanks for reading.
