Saturday, July 29, Kyoto Computer Gakuin Kyoto Ekimae School
The students had a realistic experience of "postrecording" to record lines and narration of KCG's mascot character "Kyokotan" to the video of KCG Group's commercials.After receiving instruction on pronunciation and vocalization of lines from a teacher of the IT Voice Actor Course of the Information Processing Department of Kyoto Computer Gakuin, the students enjoyed the process of animation production, including studio recording, using the "Digital Sound Studio" located in the Kyoto Ekimae School.Some of the participants were a bit nervous as it was their first time to record in a studio, but once they put on the headphones and stepped up to the microphone, they performed the role of "Kyokotan" with aplomb.Parents captured their children's "bravery" on film and in photographs.
